Odd Down Winter Series

26 Sep , 2015  

Planning is underway for racing at Odd Down this winter, with the following dates and organising clubs listed below:

5 – Bristol RC
12 – Bristol Uni

9 – Radeon
16 – SVCC (youth races)
23 – Bath CC
30 – Ride 24/7

6 – Radeon
13 – Bristol RC
20 – SVCC (youth races)
27 – Bath CC

The racing will be on Saturday afternoons, with the roughly the following format:
11-12 youth (BC points will be awarded)
12-1 coaching for all women at each event (£2 extra, but cost of day licence absorbed by organiser)
1-1:30 women (who’s going to be the first Bath lady to have a try?)
2-2:45 4th cat
3-3:45 2/3 cat  (tough for the 3rds I know, but I hope we’ll have separate category racing during the summer)

Entry fees are £14 online, £20 on the day, so a real incentive to enter online, and prizes will be awarded for each race in each event and given out on the day. The prize pot will be £1 per rider, so the more entries the bigger the prizes. There will also be a series trophy/jersey, exact details are still being worked out.

Bath CC are hosting 2 events, so we need an organiser and 5 marshals for each event, so please start checking your calendars, as we’ve been struggling to get helpers this year. If you plan on racing any of the races, I’d expect you to help out at one of our two events.

I’m really hoping some Bath ladies will take up the offer of the very cheap coaching, and maybe have a go at the racing as well, it’s not nearly as scary as it might look!

Any questions just ask.



Ladies only ride – Sunday 26th July

3 Jul , 2015  

To coincide with the Rapha Women’s 100 event, there will be a ladies only ride out to Berkeley on Sunday the 26th July, lead by Aileen Brown and Julia Adamson. This will be ideal for those who have yet to join the Sunday club run, as it will be a mostly flat ride with glorious views of the Severn, and only a few small rises to overcome. This ride also celebrates the fact that we now have over 50 female members of the club, so please join in and make this a great event.

It’s optional to sign up here: Women’s 100, but if you do you’ll get a lovely little woven badge to commemorate your achievement.

Spread the word, and let’s get as many of the ladies out riding together!

Usual meeting point by  Cleveland Bridge at 0830.

Following the success of the club trip to Claviers in September 2012, a group of us are having a repeat visit from 15th-22nd September this year.

Claviers is in the Var region of SE France close to the Gorges du Verdon & Alpes Maratimes. It is an hours drive from Nice and is the French home of club member Howard Burton.

The trip is an opportunity for a week of rides guided by Howard & members of his local French Club.

Direct flights from Bristol to Nice (currently £256 return including bike). Howard looks after transfers. Accommodation is either B&B or self-catering.  Aileen & David have rented a 2 bedroom apartment which they would be happy to share.
