• It was overcast when we were setting up the TT tonight, making a rear light almost mandatory, but the sun came out before the start and it was a hot night with little wind.

    Times were pretty good, none better (in relative terms) than Ozzy Stringer’s. He knocked almost FOUR MINUTES off his PB! Four minutes! It was an astonishing result, with O…[Read more]

  • Volunteers needed to run the 10-mile Snainton TT this Thursday. This is the last TT this year that we’re hosting, so this is the last time I’ll ask. You’d be needed from 6:45pm to approx 8pm. I need at least three people for this event, and can readily use more if more volunteers come forward. Please let me know if you can help. It’s dead easy -…[Read more]

  • It was warm and sunny out at Snainton for the 15-mile TT, but with only a light west or south-westerly breeze it was quite ‘sticky’ – not really fast anywhere.

    Best ride from the RCC contingent was by Patricia Dunn, doing only her second event. I reckoned she could average 20mph and based her handicap time on that, but she was closer to 21m…[Read more]

  • Cycling Weekly is having a poll for the UK’s best bike shop. You know what to do! Voting closes 31 August. http://www.cyclingweekly.com/cycling-weekly/britains-best-bike-shops-whos-front-343270

  • It’s the penultimate handicap TT on Thursday: a 15-mile event around the Yedingham triangle. Sign on at the earlier time of 6.45pm for a 7pm start. Realistically, the handicap comp. can only be won by Ozzy Stringer, Megan Simpson or Katy Cawthorn, although mathematically it’s possible for Simon Walker, Edward Hopper, and Ben Watkinson to win. (Any…[Read more]

  • Where’s everybody gone? Possibly the Mediterranean? It is holiday time. Only 8 riders tonight. What was supposed to be a 25-mile TT ended up being a 10 because of the roadworks in Snainton. We can’t race through traffic lights. So it was the 10-mile Brompton course instead. A strong westerly made it very fast out – I wonder if the cop with the spe…[Read more]

  • Tonight’s 25-mile TT will be replaced by a 10-mile TT from Brompton. Sign on by 7pm at the bottom of Sawdon Lane for a 7.15pm start. (I went out to Snainton this morning: the traffic lights are still there and the road and path is still dug up, so I can’t see them going before this evening.)

  • It was a warm, breezy evening on the Malton/Pickering course, with a southerly wind that dropped away, making it hard out to the turn but offering little help coming back. Times were accordingly a bit down. (My time was way down, but that’s because I was riding a mountain bike with slicks.) The bigger you are the better in these conditions, b…[Read more]

  • We’ve got a 25-mile TT this Thursday, meeting as usual in the Irton lay-by. Sign on by 6.45pm for 7pm (ish) start. I am timekeeping again for this event, but I need AT LEAST ONE VOLUNTEER to help me, as I need a marshal in Snainton to guide riders back onto the main road. This is the last-but-one time trial that Richardsons are hosting this year…[Read more]

  • It was a miserable day for most of Thursday, but the forecast kept saying sunshine for the TT and the BBQ that evening – and so it proved. The contractors had come back the day before and got rid of most of the grit left over from the road resurfacing, making it much less risky to ride. Racing conditions were pretty good, apart from the dragginess…[Read more]

  • Fortunately the road resurfacers had finished at the Yedingham triangle, leaving us free to race at Snainton last night. Unfortunately, they’d resurfaced some bits with horrible chipseal, the road equivalent of the roughest-grade sandpaper. At least it was warm and sunny, albeit with the usual westerly wind that made it a drag riding out to A…[Read more]

  • The incessant rain we’ve had finally stopped today and the roads were pretty much dry by the time we came to be racing around the Yedingham Triangle in tonight’s 10-mile interclub TT, hosted by Yorkshire Coast Clarion. There was only a light wind but its westerly direction made it a surprisingly sticky night. Not bad conditions, but not great eit…[Read more]

  • The forecast was about right for the 25-mile TT last night: the rain cleared away and we raced in sunshine. There was a nagging westerly breeze that made it a tough slog to out to Allerston but at least it was nice coming back. Not a bad night, but not a great one either, so well done to everyone who got a PB. With one exception (me) every…[Read more]

  • Dark skies all around us, especially over Scarborough way, but out at Snainton those who elected to ride the TT largely missed it. A few spits and spots. The wind was all over the place, dropping before the TT, then picking up fiercely towards the end. It made for some cracking times, with PBs all over the place.

    I’m off to watch the election c…[Read more]

  • Cheers, Paul. With four volunteers now, there’s enough to run this now. Although any more help on the night will still be appreciated as it means we can have marshals on more junctions.

    Forecast is currently sunshine and (heavy) showers, so cross your fingers for good conditions.

  • Can you spare an hour or so to help your club this Thursday? We need marshals for the time trial at Snainton. You’d be needed from approx 7pm to about 8.15pm, meeting at the gated lay-by near the Coachman Inn on the Yedingham road. If you have eyes, arms, and are happy to wear a yellow tabard, you are qualified to help – it’s dead easy. We’re…[Read more]

  • Results from the 17-mile hilly TT through Troutsdale on Sunday. Thanks to Paragon for hosting this one. Next event is the 10-miler at Snainton on Thursday (which – ahem! – still needs marshals).

  • Was sorry to miss this one. Realise that although I’ve put the results on FB, I forgot to put them here. Please note that lap times are only approximate, as they’re based on the leader going through at exactly 60 minutes, which is never the case.
