The club is pleased that Steve Abraham will be riding our New Year's Day '10' as part of the first day of his assault on Tommy Godwin's mileage record (see his website for details). We are uncertain how much attention this will attract - we know that Audax UK will have a presence, and there may be a media presence. The time trial itself starts at 10am, so riders should arrive in good time to sign on.

We have for some time been concerned about starting our events on the Stoke Hammond course so close to the large Kelly's Kitchen roundabout. Since traffic lights were installed, traffic flow has been difficult. With this in mind, Tony Farmborough and Bryan Scarborough devised a replacement course - see the description below. I've plotted an approximate map of the course (note that the precise locations of the start and finish are as per the formal course description).

 

We are delighted to welcome Audax UK and any media attention at the NYD ’10'. At this point, it’s not clear exactly who will be at the NYD ’10’ (it may depend on the weather on the day!), but we do need to ensure we don’t cause disruption to other road users. We are confident there won’t be any issues or problems.
