Re: Club Kit Order 2019

Hi Stu,

My order:

Men's S/S VERO PRO Jersey – Small

is missing.

(I'd also wanted a gilet)

I didn't heard back from you about picking up the old FRC CX jersey either.

Thanks,

Ben.

Re: Club Runs - 21st April

100km, out via clent hills, belbroughton and round to Wychbold. Cafe at 56km, then loop back via inkberrow and feckenham.

If you were pushed for time the cafe is only ~12 miles from the black horse if you needed to head straight back then (or after).

Re: A, B and C Club runs April, May and June 2019

I can lead the A run on the 21st. It's subject to change, but I'm thinking of going to Broad Acres Fisheries. It's not that far away, so we'll take the scenic route.

Re: Club Kit Order 2019

(As per my separate email)

Please put me down for:

Men's S/S VERO PRO Jersey – Small
TENAX PRO Gilet – Small

The gilet is conditional on it not having pockets.

Thanks,

Ben.

Re: Club Runs - 24th March

Just because I was wearing a Halesowen jacket doesn't mean I don't qualify for club run points! I'm a paid up Beaconite, don't you know!

Re: Club runs - 7th October

Can't speak for the facilities at Shelsley Walsh itself but just along the road at Stanford Bridge there is a decent cafe we've visited previously: The Den Cafe Bar.

Re: 2018 Time Trial Calendar - Open TTs, Club TTs, Team TTs and Hill Climbs

Yeah, it's a shame. I was looking forward to it but have withdrawn my entry now as the logistics of getting to the new venue don't work. Will still be riding the warm up event this weekend at least. Thanks for the info.

Yep , I'll be there - looking forward to it. On a related note: does any one have a good source for finding when various club events (HC and/or TT) are running? Other than looking at the individual websites of different clubs I don't know how to find out when/where things are happening. Not since ev...

Re: Club runs -3rd June

I will call the cafe tomorrow to check everything is ok but assuming all is well the A run will be going to Tewkesbury via:

Note: On the way back I plan to peal off around Tardebigge, but I'm sure people will manage from there!

Re: Club runs -3rd June

I'm happy to lead an A run south to either Upton or Tewkesbury (I'll look at routes and choose one tomorrow).

Good ride today, thanks Neil.

This is the bike insurance I mentioned: https://pedalcover.co.uk/ - the best cover I've found by a long way.

Re: Club kit order - deadline 31 March

Hi Dave, thanks for the reply. Can you/anyone confirm whether the club is planning to buy any stock this time around? I don't mind risking an ill fitting jersey but don't want to order shorts if there's chance they won't fit. For those I'd rather buy from stock later or wait until next year/order.

Re: Club kit order - deadline 31 March

I was out of the country last week and missed the chance to try the kit on. How does it compare size-wise to Giodana kit or other brands say Castelli? It was mentioned on the ride today that the 'gold' kit is comparable to Castelli, would you agree? Is the club planning to buy some stock with this o...
