Club Runs - 28th October

Post by WorcsPhil » 22 Oct 2018 13:05

What a lovely day to go out cycling with friends....We had 27 people out on Sunday, which included a World Champion in Dave Hughes, who extended his normal 150 metres - 3km riding distance at full pelt, to 100kms with reduced pelt. Great to see everyone out, and thanks to Paul, Phil and Simon for leading.

I was going to say not so many races going on now that Summer is over, but the Hill Climb season is in full swing, and lots of Beacon riders are skimping on their roast potatoes to ride these...a huge shout out to a fantastic turnout of Beacon riders at this coming Sunday's National Hill Climb on Pea Royd Lane in Yorkshire...Be great if someone posts a review of the day onto the message board. It was also the Thruxton Closed Circuit TT races on Sunday, and kudos to all that rode...I spotted Gemma Johnson, Ian Taylor, George Thorne and Simon Dighton on the results page. Well done all.

It's also the marathon running month, and a few Beaconites ran the Birmingham half last weekend in the pouring rain, and talking of running, some of you may remember Leonie Balter who was over here for a year last year and rode regularly with Beacon and Brat. I noticed on strava that she ran the Amsterdam Marathon yesterday, and blitzed round in 2hrs 47mins... a fantastic time! She obviously benefitted from running the Timberhonger 10k a couple of times.

Anyway - Back to club runs...I can't lead this coming Sunday as originally envisaged, so we're back to requiring three leaders. I fully expect to send out another email asking similar on Friday, but why not delight me by getting your name down early this week, or indeed, putting your name down for any week on the other thread...

This week's rides are:

A: Cosford - Nick Shenton
B: Either Arley with Richard Leaper or Warwick with Phil Gameson - decide on the morning, there will either be a wrestling or chess challenge at 09:00 to decide :shock:
C: Worcester Garden Centre - Dave Cole

Maybe not forgetting the Beacon CX team which actually features more Beacon riders than any other races that the club takes part in.
This Sunday at
Stoneleigh National Agricultural and Exhibition Centre , Stoneleigh Park, Kenilworth, CV8 2LG
A club run to support always welcome.

*ahem* Silverstone 9-up team time trial :)? Just the 27 Beacon riders this year :) not that there’s a point in having a competition about which discipline has the most competition! It’s just brilliant how many Beacon riders do such a huge variety of riding :) (sorry for hijacking the club run post Phil!)

Maybe should have said race series 😁
I think there are nearly 20 registered for the West Midlands CX league, from 5 to 62.


Takes place most Sundays at venues at distances that would make club runs so just giving details in case any potential ride leader is looking for somewhere to go on a club run.

Tis almost the season of club runs for me BUT last major champs this Fri - Sun at Derby velo. LVRC track champs mark the season end for me. I hope all club runs go well and yes Pete, a club run to support Beacon riders would be lovely. About 30 m each way to Stoneleigh which, by current Beacon standards, is a breeze.

I'll take the A Run to Spiders Web at Cosford this Sunday.

67.5 miles Black Horse to Black Horse

This will be at the lower end of A Run pace as I've not been out as much this last week.

In the absence of anyone else I am willing to lead to Warwick tomorrow. I haven't decided on which route to use yet, but it will be around 55 miles, not too hilly and not involve anything off road.

I was looking at leading a run to Arley Arboretum - not too long (about 50 miles BH to BH) and slowish for a B Run, but quite hilly. Could do it next week instead?

I think that the arboretum may close for the winter. Not sure of the dates.

Due a no show from Richard I found myself leading today - sorry for the initial delay while I sorted a route.

On the B run to The Tuckery in Warwick were
Phil Gameson (leading)
Wayne Gibbs
Paul Derbyshire
Laurie Derbyshire
Huub Zwort
Jon Saddler
James Bindle

The weather was great today (provided you had enough layers on) and we had a good ride both there and back with no incidents. Wayne was suffering from a bad shoulder by Wythall on the return, and made his own way back from there (though he did end up in front of us again at one point!)
Welcome to Jon, James and Huub on their first Beacon ride - we hope to see James and Jon again, though Huub is returning to the Netherlands shortly.
Quite quick for a B run (16.4mph), but there seemed to be plenty of chatter behind me so hopefully not too fast!
