New Turbos - Cotswold 113 and Classic - Sunday Rides


Thank you To Kevin for his bike maintenance course last night – we hope it was useful for everyone. Maybe you will ride a thorn and pothole free life – but in case not you will be a bit more prepared! Watch out for further courses and for Alain’s occasional “M” pre-ride bike safety check courses on Sunday mornings.


New Turbo’s

By next Tuesday’s turbo session we should have three more brand new club turbos to join the three that arrived a couple of weeks ago. That will allow us to “retire “ a couple of the older units but should still give us more capacity every week. That said, we couldn’t get all the turbos filled this week because we were short of skewers. More have been ordered but please do check that you haven’t accidentally gone home with one after the session – they’re easy to recognise – basic steel and shiny!


Cotswold 113 and Classic club entry

Many thanks to Liz for getting the club 113 entry in – sounds like it all got a bit tense at the end with the race already sold out! Liz will be finalising an entry for the August Classic event in two weeks so if you missed out on 113 make sure you get your entry paid up on the website as soon as possible.

Sunday Rides

This Sunday we have Fast and Intermediate 2 rides planned. Alain will be leading a fast ride, around 100k at 28 kph average and Dave will lead something relatively short and a little bumpy out to the west for Intermediate 2 (22 – 24 kph /14 – 15 mph typically). Look out on FB for routes and further details and possible other rides.

Rides depart from Oxsrad at 9.15 as normal. Looking like another cold but dry morning. Frosts are now definitely in the air so as ever gauge conditions for yourself and ride accordingly.


Sign up and location details

Good luck to everyone racing at the Chilly Duathlon this Sunday and have a great week!
