2018 LFCC Evening 10 TTs

The series of 6 evening 10 mile time trials has been approved, and all the paperwork is complete. Now we need to go about finding volunteers to put them on!

We need a full roster of volunteers signed up in good time before each event - our absolute cut off date is the week before the event - if the roster isn't full by then, the event will be cancelled.

Volunteers will be able to earn a volunteer token for each night they help out, and any LFCC member wishing to compete in the Club TT Trophy, will be required to volunteer for at least one event in order to qualify.

N.B. If you volunteer for an event and that night gets cancelled, it still qualifies as your one night volunteering.

The Championship is based on your 4 best rides out of the maximum 5 events in which you can race (taking out the one volunteered for) - if a subsequent event is cancelled, or there's a night you can't race, meaning for example you only race 3 nights, then the average of the rides completed will be used to bring you up to the four times required for the purposes of the championships.

Please see the roster on the attached link to the Google Drive - you should be able to edit, so please just write your name against the role you wish to help with, on the dates you can.

I'll be setting up Facebook event pages for each night, and if you have any questions about what the roles entail, just drop me a line.

Eric on A Bike is to ride 1000 miles on a 16" Wheel ride for charity.
Eric On A bike 002.JPG

On 30 May 2018 I'm setting off from Canterbury to cycle the 1,000 mile pilgrim route to Rome. On a three-speed folding bike with 16" wheels that people have unkindly described as "that clown bike"!  Hopefully arriving in Rome before my return journey by train on 20 June...

Along the way I'm looking to raise money for Leicester Wheels for All, a great local charity that seeks to help anyone, regardless of ability, enjoy the sheer pleasure of cycling.

To find out more, or to make a donation, please visit the web page below. And rest assured that every penny donated will go directly to the charity - I'm funding the ride myself, and unlike JustGiving, MyDonate takes no commission from donations.

Best wishes and thanks for reading

2018 Evening 10 Time Trials – HELP

We are looking for event organisers to help run our evening 10 time trials. We plan to run x6 events Thursday 7th June onwards.

The TT Event organisers role is to see that the event runs smoothly, put marshals/signs in place, make sure time keepers/pusher offs are all organised….

This is not an overly complex role & full help and guidance is on hand from other members, we just do not have anyone now who can fully commit to the full 6 evenings.
So we are therefore looking for people to take on the role just for a single week to ease off the burden of full commitment for the whole 6 series.

If we do not get a main event organiser covered for each event by the end of March we will have to CANCEL the Evening 10 TTs which will be a real shame.
Once we hopefully fill these organisers roles we can start to get marshals places filled.

Thanks in advance for any one who would like to help.

A reminder of our "Helpers tokens" system can be found below which any TT volunteers would be entitled to:
