Coronavirus update – August 2021
With Coronavirus restrictions now being eased we hope to start having our Club meetings at the University Arms again hopefully starting in September.
The White Peak vets road race took place on Sunday 1st August and entries are now being accepted for the Club on 10 Saturday 28th August at Hatfield Woodhouse.
The Saturday Teacake is now back up and running but not quite at the level it was before the pandemic started.
@WinNats21 – National Hill Climb Championships 2021
Below is the link to the official Facebook Page of hill climbing’s biggest open secret: The 2021 Cycling Time Trials National Hill Climb Championships.
This is a collaboration of organisers from local clubs including: myHill Cycling and Rutland CC as well as expert volunteers from Sheffrec CC and Lifting Gear Products/Cycles in Motion.
We are proud to announce that – for the first time in 44 years – the venue for this event will be the ‘home of hill climbing’: the leg shattering; VO2 busting; cadence crumbling Winnats Pass.
We are indebted to Castleton Parish Council for considering and allowing this esteemed event to once again be battled out on one of the UK’s most imposing climbs.
The event will take place on 31st October 2021. More information on the event and qualification criteria to follow (because we are expecting a lot of entries) … but in the meantime please like, share and follow.
2020 Club meetings
With low attendance at the recent monthly meetings we decided at the AGM to have bi-monthly meetings this year at the University Arms and on the alternative Fridays we would arrange a ride out somewhere and have a few beers and an informal meeting.
The first ‘alternative Club meeting’ is set for Friday 6th March at the Norfolk Arms, Ringinglow.
This year’s meeting dates are listed on the MEMBERSHIP & MEETINGS tab.
White Peak Road Race
Obituary : John ‘Jock’ Caldwell
I received news from Paul Morris last week that John ‘Jock’ Caldwell passed away just before Christmas. Not many will remember Jock but he was an active member of the Club along with his wife Betty during the 1950’s / 60’s / 70’s. I’m a little late with this post but his funeral was at Willerby on 2nd January near where he lived in Barton on Humber. I’ll send a card to Betty from the Club but if anyone else wishes to get in touch then please give me a shout and I’ll let you have her address.
For those of you that need something to start training for, entries for the 2020 North Mids Road Race League are now open…
You will find all details on the NMMRL tab to the left, on the TLI website and on the NMRRL site.
Christmas Fancy Dress Dinner – Sunday 15th December
Our Christmas fancy dress dinner at the Cheshire Cheese Inn at Hope is a week earlier than usual so that we may get a few more people there than last year.
Price will probably be about the same as last year, £20 for a three course meal payable in cash on the day.
If you need a vegetarian meal then please let me know, otherwise you’ll get a full Xmas turkey dinner.
Usual meet, 11am Bents Road for those riding out and yes, fancy dress is compulsory !
