It was a win for Rugby RCC in the annual inter-club event, with Rugby Velo only able to field the required 6 riders.Go to inter-club results for the details, or go to Interclub History to see results of previous years

Can you be seen?

No apologies for repeating this message from last year. Gloomy evenings show many riders would benefit from a front light. Timekeeping at the finish reinforces this message and it's easy to see how an oncoming motorist could miss a cyclist travelling in the opposite direction. Modern lights don't add much weight and could save a big repair bill, (or even your life). We have spare lights which riders can borrow if they forget.

Upgrades to handicaps

A minor change to the handicapping involving the carryover times from last year so as to put more emphasis on this year's times. To understand how it works go to handicaps explained.

You can pay by PayPal, or by cash or cheque to the membership secretary. As before, you can pay for membership, the season's TTs and teas with a single payment (£58)

Please don't renew through the British Cycling on-line system as payment can take a few weeks to come through and we wrongly accuse our members of not renewing.

Here's our polo shirts, with club logo embroidered, available in S, M, L & XL at £10 each.

Riders' Numbers

Note comment in recent report: "Riders who only fasten their number at the top probably don't realise that it flaps around and makes it unreadable for the timekeepers. Definitely a case of mistaken identity waiting to happen." Apart from using all 4 pins you might consider this solution: http://www.nopinz.com/product/nopinz-speedpocket-retrofit/

Contact Craig McKee who has obtained a 15% discount for club members.

Of Course, calling out your number also helps!

Ever thought about a bike fitting? This is about making the bike fit the rider instead of the other way round! Go to All3Motion Bike Fitting for details.
