No increase in fees for members in 2021. Despite an increase of £1 per ride on the CTT levy the club committee have decided to take a hit and freeze our fees for next year, meaning that we will be subsidising entry fees for the coming year. Go to fees to find out more. If you have money carried over from 2020 go to 2021 payments to see how much to pay.

Club Clothing
We have transferred to NoPinz as our clothing supplier. This will allow members to order clothing direct, thus eliminating the need for the club to carry expensive stock. Just go to the NoPinz website to view our kit. To order you will need a password, contact Ollie Billing on ollie.billing@gmail.com

As we move from Endura to Nopinz we are selling off our stock of Endura kit at a 30% discount. Go to Discounted Clothing to see what's available. To purchase any of these items contact Ollie Billing on ollie.billing@gmail.com

Sad news - Club President Bruce Townsend passed away on 12th September, aged 91.
Read about Bruce's life and career by following this link https://funeral-notices.co.uk/notice/townsend/4875667 Pity the author mentioned the wrong club as Bruce was a lifelong member of Rugby RCC. We've posted our own obituary, just to keep the record straight.

Overpaid? The use of PayPal to pay TT entry fees means some of our members have actually overpaid (and a few still underpaid!). No one will miss out, go to overpaid to find out more.

Season's award winners - see story so far.

Go to course description to see details of our 'new' 25 mile course, to be used for our event on Sunday 6th September. This is effectively a one-lap version of our 50-mile course, with different start and finish points. Click on sketch map for a better view.

New for 2020 - the Strava Challenge!
This is a new way to resurrect the 12 & 24 hour competitions. Given the most recent announcements by BC and CTT about the postponement of organised events we want to give our members the opportunity to compete for some of our 2020 awards by riding at home. As our season is now unlikely to commence until July 1st 2020 at the earliest, the committee has decided to include indoor rides in the Strava 12 hour and 24 hour challenges. Go to Strava Challenge to read more.

Seb Palmer has shot into the lead of our 2020 Strava 12 hour challenge with a superb effort of 368.83km in an elapsed time of 11:59:52. Riding solo around Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Leicestershire, Seb maintained an impressive average speed of 32.6km/h. Congratulations to him and can anyone beat it?

Club Emails
The new booking system has a facility to send out an email message to all our members. This is a useful feature, but unfortunately email hosts have tightened up their systems to block 'phishing' emails. Sometimes these will be identified as spam or blocked altogether. Thus our messages which contain 'bookings.rugbyrcc' incur this treatment. The lesson is to check your Junk folder regularly.

Road Bike definition
With TT bikes getting quite expensive many people are looking at road bikes as a separate category in open events, and it's a less expensive way to get into the sport. Rugby RCC include a road bike category in our open TT on 31st July. Go to Road Bikes to see the definition.
