Re: wed 26th June K32/20 club handicap competition

Hi all

I think my handicap time should be 47 minutes, as it was my first 20-miler.

Thanks

Hi Simon - I've not done a Beacon 10-miler before so I think something's gone a bit funny with my handicap - could you look into it?

Re: Club runs - 26th May

Due to lowish numbers at the BH, the decision was made to combine the A and B rides. So we started with 10 heading to the Den cafe at Stanford Bridge, but quickly became 7 due to mechanicals.

On the way back, we'll go via Heightington and Stourport. I'll post a route if I can. It's a hilly one with arrival time around 11:30-11:45...

Re: Club runs - 8th April

The intro rides are the first Sunday of the month; unfortunately that's bad timing as the next one is on 6th May. You could perhaps come to a C run and peel off if it's too hard going; besides we go at the pace of the slowest rider so if anyone struggles they don't get left behind.
