The latest news from the North Bucks Road Club, including club news and announcements; club events and results; news relating to the wider cycling community. Club event results are periodically moved to the "Club Events" area, accessible from the menu above.

I have posted a calendar of club time trials under Club Events > 2015 Club events. Here's a direct link. Note that this is still a provisional calendar. We'll use the same League Table system as in 2014 for the time trial league.

The road racing calendar will be posted when I receive it.

 

Tony Farmborough emailed to say

that we are still waiting for the return of the following awards.
No. 20. The Sewell Cup...........from Tony Parks.
No. 31. The Ladies Trophy......from Jenny Selley.
No. 33. The Newcomers Cup..from Luke Daniells.
Their early return to myself or Dick Selley would be much appreciated.

A reminder: Our club AGM is on Monday 8th December in Harley Hall, 7.30 for 8pm. Agenda should be available shortly.

Andy Wickham has emailed me to post a reminder that he'd like final deposits for those wishing to attend the club dinner and presentation in January. If you're coming to the AGM, that would be a good opportunity to pay deposits. Full payment will be due one week before the dinner.

Steve Abraham is going to attempt a very long standing cycling record: the most miles covered in a calendar year. The current record was set in 1939 by Tommy Godwin, who set the astonishing mark of 75,065 miles - and later completed 100,000 miles in 500 days.

Steve has a website - oneyeartimetrial.org.uk - where more information can be found, and offers of assistance can be made. The site is still being set up, but there's a page outlining how he's set up a schedule for 2015. Actually, he's calculated more than one schedule, and both look to a significant improvement over Godwin's mileage.

Update: Steve's record attempt is featured on road.cc: Audax UK ace Steve Abraham aims for Tommy Godwin's "unbreakable" Year Record in 2015

In advance of the annual award of prizes, we need to have the trophies awarded last year returned for engraving. Anthony Batt turned up at last night's club night with a huge box of trophies, but we're still waiting for the following to come back to Tony Farmborough:

No.20 The Sewell Cup..........................held by Tony Parks.

No.31 The Ladies Trophy.....................held by Jennie Selley.

We're looking at holding some roller racing over the winter. As a taster, there will be an opportunity to have a go (and to ensure the equipment is set up and functioning) on Thursday evening (13th November) in the clubroom from 6.30pm.

All welcome!

The Annual General Meeting of the North Bucks Road Club will be held on Monday 8th December.

An Agenda will be circulated shortly along with further details. Members are encouraged to submit items for the agenda by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or Steph.

We have a club meeting on Monday 10th November, in Harley Hall starting about 8pm. 

No set agenda, but it's likely we'll discuss arrangements for the AGM and January's club dinner. A heads up before the AGM - we are looking for a TT Secretary to replace Steve Abraham.
