2023/January - ANGLIA RUSKIN UNIVERSITY

Date:  January 2023

We are a research team based at the Cambridge Centre for Sport and Exercise Sciences at Anglia Ruskin University. We are inviting members of your club to participate in our upcoming research project!

We are aiming to assess the impact of a novel saddle design on time-trial cycling performance. This study will involve 3 visits to our Human Performance Laboratory, with each visit being separated by a minimum of 3 days and a maximum of 7 days. In visit 1, we will assess your V̇O2max, and in visits 2 and 3, you will complete a 10-mile time trial as fast as possible using either the novel saddle or a standard saddle. We will be starting with the testing in mid-January. 

I have attached the participant information sheet for reference. To qualify for the study, you need to be: 

Female/Male, 18 – 60 years old. 
Have no known health issues or injuries. 
Have previous and current experience in cycling time-trialling. 

Benefits of taking part:

FREE V̇O2max 
FREE determination of your training zone. 
FREE assessment of body composition. 

We hope that this might interest you and the members of your club, if you wish to take part, please get in touch and/or share the attached flyer on your social media platform/s and with your club members. 

If any of the club members are interested or for further information, please do not hesitate to contact one of the researchers:

 2023/June - CHASE the SUN

Date: 24 June 2023

UK SOUTH - Sunrise to Sunset

Starting in the Thames estuary, the 200+ mile route bi-sects south London, passing Richmond park, bridging the Thames, onto Wiggin’s Olympic time trial route, plus west-country highlights, lush Vale of Pewsey, Silchester village hall, mendip hills, breathtaking Cheddar gorge, before arriving on the seafront finish at Burnham-on-Sea.​

UK NORTH - Sunrise to Sunset

A double-century feat over an epic 200miles leaving from the beachfront at Tynemouth at the first ray of ocean sunrise aiming to reach the esplanade at Prestwick to witness the (hopefully glorious) sunsetting into the sea beside the Isle of Arran.  A route full of stunning vistas, wilderness, heaths, rivers, lochs, castles and beaches, a challenge to inspire you when pedalling the longest day.

2023/July - DUNWICH DYNAMO

Date: 1-2 July 2023

Definitely not a sportive, the Dunwich Dynamo is nevertheless one of the 'must ride' events of the summer calendar for many cyclists. 2022 sees the 30th edition of the annual 200km night ride from London Fields in Hackney to Dunwich on the Suffolk Coast.
