Welland Valley Cycling Club

Birch feels the heat

Dave Birch was the only Welland Valley rider to make the long trek to South Cambridgeshire for the N&DCA 25 mile time trial based at Guilden Morden. Birch finished, in sweltering heat, in 1.14.12 which gained him second place in his age group.  The winner was John Mulvey of Cambridge University CC, who finished, clearly unaffected by the heat, in 53.59.

This weekend .. 22/7

The final weekend of the tour also clashes with a Whizz Kids skills session in Welland Park tomorrow from 2:00pm.

With many potential tour or Olympic champions dialling in skills in a great relaxed, fun and traffic free enviroment (luckily no white lines!).

Round 7 of the N&DCA takes place near Guilden Morden a 25 mile tt. Enjoy a cycle ride in the lanes - don't forget to wave.

And for the armchair cyclist a Tour de France double header.

I predict a double or even trebble celebration as Froome gets Yellow, Yates takes White and McLay sprints to a stage victory on The Avenue des Champs-Élysées.

Relax, enjoy and be safe.

Saddlebag news 22/7/16

Who will take Garratt's crown?

Myles Foskett and Max Sillifant will contest the National Junior 25 mile TT on Saturday 6th August. A small field of 33 riders will contest the South East Midlands promotion, with Welland Valley CC providing volunteers.

Club Championship 20 mile TT, incorporating a round of the midweek 10 series.

With the cancellation of the Inter-Club in June and thus losing a round of the Club Championship it was decided to combine to increase the distance on Tuesday 26th July from 10 miles to 20 miles. The event will be a double header with a 10 mile split being taken for Round 14 of this series and the 20 mile time will count as Round 6 of the Club Championship.

The HQ will be Husbands Bosworth, the start will be near the helicopter station near Sulby. First rider off at 19:00hrs.

The rearranged inter-club is on Sunday 14th August.  

 

'Come and Try it'

Do you know a friend who would like to try a time-trial and has been inspired by Froome & Yates?

On Tuesday 2nd August Welland Valley CC welcomes all to ‘Come and Try it’.

The family fun will have distances of 1 mile, 5 miles and 10 miles around the traffic free venue of Rockingham Speedway.
