  • Thanks Jamie,

    This an important date in the Club's social calendar. It's when member old and new get together as part of the LVCC family.

    We have , this year, revived the tradition of holding the Bill Major Club 25 on the morning of the race. That will be run from the Race HQ .
    More details to come on what's happening on the mornng of the Reunion. I think we are planning to hold a sale of the old kit as well..


    SUNDAY JULY 10th, 1.30pm (ish) at BURTON END LODGE, nr STANSTED, ESSEX
    Dear club members, ex-club members, friends of the club, friends, family, et al.
    Yet again time is racing on, and soon we hope to welcome you all again at our Burton End HUT. Sorry, I am a bit late with the particulars, but there’s a lot going on ‘Chez Frida’
    Not to worry, let’s make it a memorable event as always. I am planning the usual extensive cold buffet, with some hot additions and plenty of choice for vegetarians. The afters buffet will be rich and varied as usual. Anybody who would like to bring a dish to supplement the feast is welcome, please let me know. If you can arrive early to help lay stuff out, that will be a great help too.
    We know money is tight, so we have held our prices for yet another-other year. YES! Now get your friends out, bring wives and kids, dig out any old Comet, Crescent and Lea Valley members you know of, and come and enjoy yourselves at our original country H.Q. New members will find this a great occasion to meet the wider club, match faces to names on the address list, and find people who can tell you some stories about the names on the trophies. Don’t be shy, just get talking, have some splendid food, a glass of Michael’s homebrew and maybe finish it off with a game of petanque.
    We are not too hard to find: From London, take the M11 and exit at junction 8 – follow the signs for Stansted Airport. Just after the overpass, turn left to LONG TERM PARKING. Pass the Hilton Hotel, straight on at the long term parking and mini roundabout, and follow the lane. Meander through Burton End village and on to The Ash public house on the right. Follow parking instructions posted at the top of our path, which is marked by flags. Limited parking is available neat the hut, for those who have trouble walking. Wear sensible shoes, the condition of the path and lawn is again quite uneven. The Ash postcode is CM24 8UQ.
    See the arrow on this map:
    Those who come early can help us lay out chairs and tables, drink provided. Thanks already ! Some bednights are available too, for the not-too-fussy (and a bit deaf). And you can help us clear up on Monday too, thanks again ! Book in on 020 89860109 (ansaphone) or e-mail to
    To help cater for the correct amount, please send in the booking form a.s.a.p. However, we try to be flexible, so if numbers change, or you only find you can only make it at the last minute, please phone or text me on 07981 745598. Always room for a few more! Anybody lost, or other problems on the day ; try Michael’s [NEW] mobile on 07910 332294
    I hope to see lots of you, Frida Wezel

  • Ed - that's what the attachment said (see first post)!

    Anyone reading this thread, please be aware that the 'Bill Major' 25-mile time trial takes place the same day in the morning. We're hoping lots of club members will do both - race in the morning and then unwind in the afternoon (and for the superfit, have a 35-mile ride home afterwards)
