With the CTT authorising events from 29th March and, we hope, some prospect of a full season, we have published our programme of Club TTs. These events are free to members and are open to members of CTT-affiliated clubs for a fee of £5. Some events are marked as "Come and Try". These are available to anyone whether or not they are members of a CTT affiliated club.
Please note that special COVID procedures are in place!
Wheeler Jonny Spowart completed his grueling 24 hour challenge in aid of the charity "Head for Change". The ride took place on 6th and 7th March, 12 hours each day, 8am-8pm, and was completed on a Turbo trainer using the Zwift software. Jonny had to overcome some difficult moments but rode 780 km to smash his fundraising target with over £2,900 raised.
Bill first joined the club in 1977 and was made a life member in 2015. Many will remember him as a kind and always considerate companion on club runs. Bill often gave up his time to help the club including, most recently, refurbishing club race signs each winter. He was active in several local causes and organised a number of charity events.
Jonny Spowart bill be attempting a 24hr Zwift ride on 6th and 7th March. 12 hours each day. 8am-8pm. This is in aid of the charity Head for Change which aims to provide a "safe space for our sporting heroes, past, present and future. Head for Change is a new charity, pioneering positive change for brain health in sport and supporting ex-players who are affected by neurodegenerative disease as a result of their career playing football or rugby".
On Sunday 19th January Wheelers' members gathered at Mayflower Place in Hertingfordbury for their annual dinner and awards ceremony. This year the start time was put back to 4:00 pm so many had been able to complete club rides in the morning, thus providing themselves with some justification to indulge fully in the food provided.
Thank you to ALL those who helped out on this event. I believe that I thanked everyone personally although no doubt I missed one or two! Your contribution made this event a success.
Special thanks to LeeM & Tony DS for all their input.
