Cotswold 113 and Classic 2018 entries – Endurance Training talk at Brookes - Sunday Rides


We’re all set for the dinner tonight – looking forward to a great evening! If anyone wants to meet up for a pre dinner drink then Bernard will be at the Tree Hotel in Iffley from 6.15 pm – all welcome though all guest are on STRICT instructions from Maite to not be late for the dinner – 7pm start with welcome drinks!


Cotswold 113 and Cotswold Classic - 2018

A reminder that Liz Merrett is putting together discounted early bird entries for Cotswold 113 and Cotswold Classic in June (10th) and August (5th) 2018. If you are looking for a first or a fast half Iron distance event next year then consider these two. They are identical events, run by the same organiser, friendly and well organised. The course is flat, relatively traffic free and not technically challenging with a straightforward lake swim. Both events are always popular with the club so there will be plenty of support and they are relatively local and very good value, especially with the club early bird discount. Liz will be finalising entries to both in Mid November and it’s worth bearing in mind that these events always sell out and this year the organisers have reduced entries to keep the event friendly and manageable.

Also remember that once you have paid and Liz has made payment to the event, you will need to make your own entry, using a voucher code that Liz will issue you with – but more details from Liz to follow.

Endurance Training Talk at Brookes – Monday evening

There looks to be an interesting talk on endurance training at Brookes next Monday at 6pm. The event is free but you must pre-book your place – more details here:

Thanks to Paddy for the heads up!


Sunday Rides

This Sunday Robert Davies will be leading an Intermediate 1 (typically 15 – 16 mph average) ride out to investigate Blowing Stone (out to the SW near Wantage) of Arthurian legend. The route is around 87k and looks to be relatively flat, avoiding the usual unpleasantness of Dragon Hill etc! Route here:

Watch out on FB for other rides or feel free to post something yourself. Weather is looking dry but a strong north wind means it will feel cold.

Rides depart from Oxsrad at 9.15 as normal – the clocks go back.....!

Have a great week!
