Our annual club circuit race will be held on Sunday 3rd September using the lower circuit at Hog Hill (aka Redbridge Cycling Centre). Signing on from 10am and the race should start at 10:30am.
The usual format: the race should last for somewhere between 45 minutes and an hour. The first lap is The President's Lap and everyone has to ride (slowly) behind the club President. After that we have an unofficial neutralised 'truce' for the first 15 mins or so, where the bunch will go round at about 20mph so that people new to racing/riding in a bunch can get used to it and see what it's all about. Then there will be a prime (an intermediate sprint for a prize) and the gloves are off - the pace will go up and the bunch will get thinned out and/or split into smaller groups.
The event is run under TLI rules, so you need to become a 'day member' of TLI. Please print out the attached form, fill it in, and bring it with you on the day to save time. The entry fee is also payable on the day. Price is provisionally £12
