Weekend Social Rides

At Long Last The Sunday Club Runs are BACK

...BUT there are a few guidelines that we need to follow:-

1) Ride in groups of no more than 6

2) No large gathering of riders - so we'll meet in 3 different areas on the market square on Sunday morning

   a) Long Route - Outside Nero's

   b) Medium Route - Opposite The Dog's Trust Shop (no comments please)

   c) Short Route - Opposite Betty Bumbles

3) The 3 routes are in different directions to avoid groups meeting up.

4) Please do NOT ride if you feel ill.

5) If anyone in your household or contact group develops COVID-19 symptoms within 14 days of the ride PLEASE contact St Neots CC ASAP.

6) Last but not least - Enjoy

Inter Club Events & Competition

Below is the calendar of events for the Inter-club competitions in 2020:

 

 

The first Inter-Club event of the season is the Beds Road-hosted 15 mile event on the 1Y/15 course* as has been used in previous years 

Sign-on (& out) is at BRCC's HQ in Cardington, with your £5 fee payable on the day

Entry for this event is via the (almost idiot-proof) BRCC on-line system www.bedsroad.org/enter_spoco.php and will remain open until a few days before, although if you can sign-up as soon as possible it'll help us with important things like setting the field, making sure there is enough cake etc etc

As ever, if you are a member of SNCC (of any classification) and can ride a bike (and that is any bike not just a TT bike) for 15 miles this is for you and we'll all be very happy to see you race for your club

Hope to see as many of you there as possible

Simon Richardson

 

Notes:

*The 1Y/15 starts on the A600 at the entrance to Cardington Airship Sheds, 100m south of Shortstown.

Proceed ESE on A600 for 7.5 miles, taking the 2nd exit of first 2 roundabouts and turn at the 3rd roundabout (Shefford/Meppershall with Tesco Garage) and retrace the route to finish opposite the start.

Caution: Poor surface southbound on 1st roundabout. Keep left of rumble stips at Haynes crossroads. No marshalls and no signposts as this is a simple route, so familiarise yourself with the route before the event.

Getting to and from the start, via the BRCC HQ
Route marked in green on map. Allow 15 mins. Note that you MUST NOT turn right into Harrowden Lane when you go back to the club, you MUST go north to the RBT and make your turn there.

Rules for the Handicap TT Trophy

As well as taking part in the TT you also have the opportunity of winning the Handicap Trophy for the 2020 season.

John Brydson, one of our loyal and former timekeepers ,is the master of this dark art of handicapping and it is as follows: 

  • Base time is 25 minutes for the circuit and your handicap is calculated from this figure
  • To establish your handicap, we take your best time from prior years
  • The base time of 25 minutes is deducted from your best time to give you your handicap
  • For example, a time of 32 minutes would give a handicap of 7 minutes 
  • 7 minutes, in this example, is deducted from your actual time on the evening to give your handicap time. In this case your handicap time would be 25 minutes
  • Typically, if your Handicap Time is under 25 minutes you will be in contention for some good points on the night. Points are awarded based on the number of riders (excluding guests and first-time riders). So, if 20 riders and 2 guests and 2 first time riders then 16 points available.
  • Lowest Handicap Time would receive 16 points down to 1 point for the highest handicap time 
  • Points awarded are based on the Handicap Time and not the Actual Time
  • Continuing the example above, if your actual time is 31 minutes for the next TT then your new handicap time will be 6 minutes for the next TT, however on the night your handicap time is 24 minutes (31 minutes less 7 minutes = 24 minutes) 
  • This handicap time  remains until you improve on your time so if you posted another 31 minutes the following week your Handicap Time would be 25 minutes ( 31 less 6) or if you were slower and posted 33 minutes then your Handicap Time would be 27 minutes. 
  • Riders without a handicap time. Your first TT sets your handicap time and will be used until you improve on this time.

 

Of course you can just come along on any of the evenings and enjoy the experience and forget all about the above !!

We look forward to seeing you.

NOT ... The Hot Cross Bun Ride!

DATE CHANGED - NOW SUNDAY 6th SEPTEMBER 2020

Please note the revised date for the "Not the Hot Cross Bun Run" is now Sunday 6th September 2020 to avoid clashing with the clubs' Ashman Trophy event. As it's September there will be no hot cross buns, but we'll put on the annual run to Oundle for coffee, brownies and sausage rolls. Routes and timings will be published in the weekly bulletin nearer the time.

  • TT Results for 6th August 2020

    McDonald and Robertson take the Honours on the Opening Night.

    Our first TT of the 2020 season was scheduled for 30th April and 14 weeks later our first TT took place and 18 riders enjoyed very favourable conditions to test themselves on the 11.2-mile Abbotsley circuit. It is likely that this will be the final season for the old course as the upgrade to the A428 will impact in 2021 and we will need to find an alternative. The Club would like to thank all the members and guests who have signed up for TTs this year.
