North Hants Road Club – Time trials

NHRC start their evening time trials next week at Ashford Hill.  They have an evening club event most weeks from now through to August. Full details of all events are shown on their website

I think that Basingstoke Tri Club affiliated to CTT this year so Tri Club members are eligible to ride any TT.  If you are not a member, you will need to be a member of an affiliated club to ride.  NHRC operate a “come and try it” option for up to 3 events.

Faccombe Club Ride (time trial format)

 On Friday 6th August 2010 we will do the third and final ‘evening club ride in time-trial style’. 

As usual, members, guests and prospective members will all be welcome.

This event will be the Faccombe hill-climb.  It is an ‘A to B’ 4.33 mile ride with 605ft of steady ascent, finishing at the radio mast at the highest point having climbed through Faccombe.  Meet at 6.30pm, first rider will be off at 7pm. 

Details of the event can be found HERE

Time trial and next club meeting – 4 June 2010

From Old But Fast

Hi everyone

As usual we will do three Club Time Trials this year.  They will be very sociable and informal, ideal for any first timers as well as good sharpeners for the more regular cyclists among us.  Guests of members will be welcome.

This year we agreed some changes at the Club AGM.   They will be held on the first Friday of June (YES that’s less than a week away!), July and August – supplanting the usual club meetings.   After the events we can congregate in a local hostelry, at which time any outstanding club business can be swiftly dealt with before we turn our attention to more serious matters.

Details for the first of the three Time Trials are as follows: Overton – 10 miles

I will do the timing, and recruit assistance as necessary, depending on the likely number of participants

Here is a link to the route. If anyone would like to ride it earlier in the week to familiarise themselves with it, by all means contact me and if possible I will ride it with you at a very sociable pace.

The hostelry on this occasion will be the White Hart which is right on the corner by the traffic lights in Overton.  Coming from Basingstoke, you can turn into their car park just before you get to the lights. Please be ready to leave the car park to cycle to the start at 18:45.  The first rider will be off soon after 19:00.  We will meet in the lounge bar afterwards.

Please let me know if you intend to take part and/or attend the meeting afterwards.  The Publican has offered to section off a part of the lounge for us. If the numbers are larger than expected (which would be a good thing), I will suggest alternative parking arrangements.

Hope to see lots of you on Friday
