I’m sad to say that the end of our time trial season is upon us, which means it’s time to invite you all to our traditional post TT supper, this year to be scheduled on August 15th following the Fairmile TT. We have organised a meal at Memories of Bengal, the curry house in Cholsey, and plan to be there at near to 20:00 as possible. Please note that the final TT of the season starts at 18:46.
If you can join us for the meal, please email firstname.lastname@example.org before Sun 11 August with confirmation.
The meal will cost approximately £15, excluding drinks.
Of course the end of the TT season doesn’t mean the end of the year for the club…Look out for details on the upcoming Hill Climb trophy, Cyclocross season, Club Runs, Kit Launch (yes, we have heard the kit will be arriving soon…!) plus you can still enter a decent number of Open time trials.
In other news this weekend saw the Club 25 mile TT Cup change hands, with Steve Mead winning the trophy. Steve completed his first 25 mile TT of the season in 57 minutes, 37 seconds with Rom Smith a further 15 seconds back. Winning the ladies trophy this year was Zoe Ludwig-Tantrum, with a time of 1:09;54. Well done to Steve and Zoe for their wins on a very windy 25 mile course! Our thanks also go out to Oxonian CC, who allowed us to hold our trophy this weekend, following the cancelled 25 mile TT eariler in the year.

We’re also pleased to hear that Duncan is recovering nicely from his fall a week or so ago, but still a few more weeks until he can get back on the bike. Get well soon Dunko!
Finally tomorrow a few of us are racing at Weston on the Green in a circuit race held around the airfield. It’s the first time the circuit has been used for a British Cycling Cat4 race, so good luck to all riders and keep an eye on the website for results in the coming days.
