Click the title above for an interesting article about Rutland legend George Steers on the VTTA North Midlands website.
Just to let everyone know that there will be NO Club meeting this Friday due to the fact that everyone has plans for the TdF so we’ve put it back a week to Friday the 11th.
It’s that time of year again when we drink Rum on Eyam stocks and listen to tales of old before watching majestic balloons fly off into the sunset and enjoying the summer evening cruise down Abney to the pub for the best food and drink deal probably on the world! please e-mail me if you’re joining us on email@example.com ps no racing up burbage this year it’s all about looking at the view, stars and chatting =)
First and foremost the date has changed from Sunday 10th August to Sunday 3rd August.
Steve has kindly agreed to move our event forward a week so as not to clash with the newly organised Pontefract Grand Prix on the afternoon of the 10th.
With the recent trouble we’ve been having with road race courses in Nottinghamshire Steve is hoping to run Tumby’s Road Race on a larger circuit at Braithwell that is also used for the Out of the Saddle Road Race later in the year.
With the bigger circuit also comes the need for more marshals so I’m asking now rather than a week before the event, if YOU can help Steve out and not leave it to him to rally round his family and friends at the last minute.
This is the second of four events that the Club is promoting this year so please try and do your bit and keep this and other events going for the future of our sport.
It’s a 10 o’clock start and the event is 68 mile so it should be all over by about 1pm.
Steve can be contacted by email, pigeon post or the good old dog and bone, his details have been circulated via email but contact us through this website and we’ll forward your details.
Had an email from the organiser of this event and the prize list looks very impressive… anyone riding??
The Sleaford Wheelers Nev Crane Memorial 25 mile TT is once again on the horizon. The date is 20th July. Since this popular event first appeared on the Calendar it has been arguably the richest and best supported TT in Lincs DC. It is now its 8th year and it is hoped that another fine entry will happen. Usually the event attracts around 100 riders.
Last year Matt Bottrill lowered his course and event record for the single carriageway C25/35 course to 50:04. With three 49 minute rides in the previous months National 25 in Lincs District, Matt’s time is the 4th quickest ever recorded in the County.
Once again the event offers around £900 in prize awards with £200 being ring fenced just for the ladies.
I hope that I have aroused some interest. The Prospectus and Details of how to enter are as under:
