Club News – September 12th

Good Afternoon BCC
I need to send you a mid month newsletter, as BCC has lots going on for the last quarter of 2019 !

Road Championship 
3 events from 5, only 3 will count. 
Highest scoring 3 will count if you’ve entered more. Points based on event length, age grouping placing, climbing achieved, difficulty and finally speed…. other factors may apply but a fast ride will not guarantee you the win..

Event 6 
End of Season Hill Climb 

Club Championship Hill Climb at West Wycombe Hellfire Caves
This is the last event in the BCC Club Championship, it will take place this Saturday 14th September
EVERYONE is welcome to give it a try, or just lend a hand, if you are in the Club Championship or not !

The Plan is to meet at the Cenotaph as normal at 7am, ride out to West Wycombe (9 miles GPX on One drive) I’m sure you know where it is ! Complete the timed hill climb and then continue on a club ride as normal.

There will be 3 return routes back to Beaconsfield, (please go to the One drive for routes)
PLEASE load all 4 routes to your Garmin. (One out, 3 back) so you have all your options covered!

Ride back 
19 miles 1030 ft
28 miles 1830 ft
50 miles 2960 ft

If you have any questions let Gordon or myself know

Dates to hold for your diaries 2020
Seems early to be planning ahead to 2020, but the Maratona looks like a great event to do in early July, I’ve heard quite a lot of interest from BCC members in going next year. Entry has to be submitted now through a third party, I’ve put both the email from the entry organiser and the form to fill in on the share drive in the routes folder. Go and have a read and submit your entry, no money needed yet…..Ill see you there ! (Gordon)

Lands End to John O’Groats
You have a great opportunity to complete this Bucket List Trip !
Grant is in contact with a third party company, who organise a supported ride over 10 days
There will be a survey coming out soon, to see who is interested, and a budget cost.
Any questions, please ask Grant, Gordon or myself.

Any questions please contact me at
