Also watch out for roadworks on A441 in Cookhill - might mean a detour to get there

Thanks Martin. Was good to get back on a bike again :) Despite my poor time (fully expected) it was a really good evening. Poor time is down to lack of riding over winter & anti-peds meds

Re: How do you find the time?!?

Most of my week-end rides are just an hour to 90 minutes long for precisely the reasons you cite. I try to get up reasonably early, get out quickly & then I'm back before I'm needed as the taxi service etc. I also commute to work & will rarely take the direct route (time &/or weather permitting).

K33/50R Sun 18 July

Three of us ventured out for Redditch R&P club TT on K33/50R on Sunday morning. The start was delayed slightly due to there being an open 25 on the same course!

Re: Club H'Cap Competition

Do you need to have done the course before to get a handicap? If you've not ridden the course before you'll get a base line handicap. However, there's an additional proviso that your final (after handicap) time can't be below the base. So for this course, ladies get a base handicap of 12 mins 30 se...
