DON'T FORGET - The annual 45RC Boxing Day TT:
9.4 miles around the Old circuit( NC/15)
10.30 start. Signing on and end of race tea /cakes will be at Walgrave Village Hall.
Start /Finish will be green triangle at Old just past the village hall.
41 club members were present for the meal, of which 25 actually rode out to the venue.......where a thoroughly good time was had by all. Although the ride home was pretty grim for those that also rode back. Rapidly deteriorating weather, with blustery winds, rain (which wasn't forecast until 4pm) and all those hills, some of the largest, longest and steepest in the county! Well done all.
It is a great pleasure to announce that 45 Road Club member Liam Stones has been signed up by the Team Raleigh cycling team for the 2014 season. Great news for Liam and we would like to wish him all the best for the coming season. Well done Liam.
Reﬂecting a season which saw him set club records at 10,15, 25 and 50 miles, George Fox took the lion's share of trophies at the 45 Road Club's annual prize presentation. Other winners included Alison Pritchard (fastest women's time trial), Simon Fitzhugh (time trial series), Oliver Bates (fastest junior time trial), and Neil Barford (fastest 100 miles). Guest speaker Bernard Smith, from Kettering CC, gave a passionate speech about cycling both in the past and today with a strong message of how local clubs are essential at cycling’s grass roots level. John Crisp paid a ﬁtting tribute to the late Graham Swannack, whose family will add a new trophy from next year in his memory. Graham's family accepted the clubman of the year trophy, awarded posthumously to a very missed member.
