.Latest Club TT Results

It was a win for Craig McKee on the K11/10T course at Thurlaston in our last 10 of the season., Go to results for the details, including the Age Cats, and click on Tables for the on-going points competition or Vets Tables to see who's heading the age categories.

2017 Open TT

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

Volunteering

Everyone wants to ride the popular courses. However, like other clubs we'll cancel an event if we don't have enough. The general rule we apply is that riders should fulfill one volunteering session to every 10 rides. The committee monitor the volunteering records and will take action if necessary. We're quite happy for a rider to substitute a suitable friend or family member and this will count as a volunteering session. Volunteering for our open TT also counts and volunteering for events on the popular K10/10 and K11/10T gain double points! To see the club guidelines and marshalling advice go to volunteering.

Press Reports

Apparently not many people read newspapers these days, but we can only apologise for inaccuracies in the Rugby Observer. After last week's TTs (2nd August) we sent identical reports to the Rugby Advertiser and the Rugby Observer. The Advertiser usually print without change, but the Observer always rewrite it and invariably get it wrong. Compare those two reports - the Observer decided the event was held at the weekend, not a Wednesday, and that Craig had recorded a sub-20 time, even though the results showed he did 20-57. Joe Public must be very confused!

Mallory Park 3-Up Team Time Trial

Go to results to see how the teams performed at our TTT held at the Mallory Park race circuit on Monday 24th July. To see more details of clubs and riders who took part see start sheet.

Craig McKee sets new 50 record

Craig set a new club 50 mile record of 1:45:04 (28.55 mph), taking more than 3 minutes off the previous record he set a year ago

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 AGM

The AGM was held on Wednesday 8th February at Dunchurch Village Hall. Once again, a disappointing attendance, but click here to see those serving on the new committee. The 2018 AGM is to be held on Wedbesday 7th February..

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: 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.
