** Cancellation **
Planned road works next Wednesday, 22 August, will close a significant section of the A1303 meaning we will not be able to hold our last 10 of the season. It is with regret this event is cancelled.
During the summer holidays the club will not be opening the club room on Monday evenings for refreshments. The club runs will continue for those still around. The club room will reopen on 10th September.
Congratulations to Charles Tallack winning the Club Circuit Championship.
Congratulations to Trevor Avis in winning the 10 mile Club Championship.
Congratulations to Trevor Avis in winning the 25 mile Club Championship.
There was a last minute course change due to resurfacing on the 'A' course. Thankfully the event could be swapped onto the 8 mile 'B' course. Despite this there were some very fast times, the results on the night were:
There are road works over the summer months on the A1303 running past Bottisham. It is likely they could affect our 10 and 25 events at Bottisham. We will not know until the day whether we will need to make changes.
Note: If the course start is to be moved there will be a "caution cycle event" sign left at the Bottisham start (outside McKay's) with a note on it.
The plan will be if the works affect the course to re-locate the start otherwise we will continue as normal.
In the event of re-location 10 mile events will be shortened by approx. 1 mile. The start will be moved past the roadworks at the eastern Bottisham High Street junction to the lay-by adj. 1 Heath Road. Opposite this lay-by, approx. 10 metres towards Bottisham, is an entrance to a field where the race will start. The race route will continue as usual and finish at the western end of the lay-by (see the map below). The reduced course length is about 8 miles.
Mountain biking - enjoy the country side, check out the wild life they say - but sometimes eeek ...
