Well done to all those who took part in last week’s PTTL time trial competition. This was the first of the series for this year and it was great to see a whole line of blue and yellow as we
took the first 5 places at the start line. We had excellent individual and team results. The second event is due this weekend with inevitable impact on club rides. But the 9a.m. ride will still go ahead as normal
Sunday Club Ride
9am from the Pink Pub. The standard BRCC Sunday format and route to Stansted with a stop at Tangmere to meet anyone joining us there. Thanks to Geoff Bewley for picking up on the lead for this week. If the group is sufficient there may be the opportunity for this group to split at Lavant and for some to take a more challenging route to Stansted. The decision on this will be made on the day. Club ride format will be observed, so no-one left behind, mechanical assistance given if required and a relaxed/steady Sunday morning pace.
Although assistance will be given with any mechanical issues, please bring a basic repair kit with you including a spare tube, pump and tyre levers. If you're not sure, have a chat with any of the regular members while you're out with us to see what they would recommend you include.
Sunday Training Ride
No training ride this week, but for those who have been regular riders on this why not give time trialling a go? No pre-entry is required for these and anyone wanting to enter would be very welcome. Details are on Facebook and the events section of our web site. If you have any other queries about these TT’s please contact us.
Sunday 'Sportive' Ride
Mark will be heading in to Chichester early this Sunday to give a shout out to all those taking part in the PTTL. The plan is to leave the Pink Pub at 7.15 cheer the team on and then head over to Stansted. Should be another good group meetup at Stanstead this weekend!
The club has a long and rich history in the local area. We cater for all standards of cycling, from beginner to veteran.
Whether you just want to get more from your cycling in a safe and friendly environment. Explore some of the wonderful local countryside with other likeminded people who will look out for each other and encourage you to do more whilst keeping a realistic pace and achievable goals.
Perhaps you want to develop more advanced cycling activities such as longer sportives riding or to enter the competitive Time Trial and Road Racing scene.
Whatever your ability is now and whatever your aim is for the future, if it's cycling related, then BRCC will always offer a warm welcome and try to help you to achieve what you want in a friendly and supportive way. Of course, cake and coffee during that journey is optional!
See our 'Club Rides' page for more details on our weekly organised rides.

Huge well done to Kelly who won the first ladies race in the Goodwood Classic series of this year. Honourable mentions to the others who also rode so well for BRCC - Aaron, Bex, and Liam.
Club Member Dave Patten just pipped Deputy Chairman Richard Miles record time for the Club Age record for 10 miles with a time of 22.05.
Well done Dave, who will hold the record in 2017?
