Club AGM
Wednesday 7th Feb 2018 at Dunchurch VH

2018 subs due on January 1st

Inevitably at this time of the year it's time to pay up. The good news is that we've kept all our fees at the same level as last year. Please note that Phil Scott has taken over membership (see contacts).

You can pay by PayPal, or by cash or cheque made out to Rugby RCC. 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 and you get charged for the privilege.

2017 Vet on Standard Results

Now we've completed the 10 & 25 mile TTs for the season we can publish the final list of Vet on Std results. Riders over 40 have to have ridden at least 4 10s and 2 25s to qualify. The list (and previous winners) can be seen on Vet on Std 2017. If you wish to challenge this fairly complicated calculation feel free to get in touch.

The booking system for club TTs closes at 4 pm prompt on the day of the event, but it's still possible to enter at the event if there are spaces. If you're unable to make it please remember to cancel so that someone else can move up the order.

2017 Open TT

Our 10-mile open time trial, held on the K11/10T on Saturday 29th July was won by David Mead (Lutterworth CC RT) in 19-32. Go to Open 2017 Index to see all the details

Inter-club TT

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.

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:

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.
