Hi Whizz Kids, just a quick reminder that we have two events this week, first is Roadrunner XXVI tomorrow night at Leicester Airport with a 6:00 sign on and a 6:45 first race. After last week was cancelled due to the threat of storms the forecast looks good for some close racing on the blank canvas that is Runway 10. We’ve invited Leicester Forest as well so there should be some competition.
Saturday is the latest round of the Whizz Kids racing league (supported by Alden Electrical) and it’s the Foxton Incline hill climb starting at 2:00pm. We’re racing on the path from the wharf at the bottom of Foxton locks up to Foxton village. There are a couple of car parks to use and as it’s looking like a warm dry bank holiday weekend please allow time to get a parking space and to get to the event. I believe there is a charge for parking so bring some change for the meter.
The hill climb is simple, fastest up the hill wins. There will be plenty of time to have several goes up the hill and to get your best time recorded. Just a couple of things to note. There is strictly NO CYCLING near to the locks themselves, if you park at the top lock please walk down the locks or use the service road to get to the bottom. We are riding on a public bridalway and it remains open to other users. If there are users on the path when it’s your turn please give them priority and come back for another go. For either event don’t forget your bike, helmet and drink and we’ll see you there!
