It’s now only a few days away from our Autumn Road Race, which should be just as exciting as in previous years.
The start sheet is attached below for reference, and lists all of the key information. The race starts at 10:00. The HQ is at Wincham Community Centre.
As always, we would ask the club to support the event by volunteering as race marshals. If you ‘ve not done this before, don’t worry,just turn up at the Community Centre from around 08:430 onwards, and you’ll be given a bib (and a nice red flag if you are lucky!), and some instructions as to the task at hand. This usually involves standing at key points of the course (normally junctions), to direct riders and warn traffic of the race. We can never have too many marshals, so please come out and give us a hand.
If you want further information about marshaling, please contact Alan Silver or Eleanor Underhill (contact details on the contacts page of the web site).

Am i correct in assuming there isnt a club run on Sunday as a result of this race?AdyJappKeymaster30 September 2013 at 11:57Post count: 824
Yep, that’s correct. whenever we have a club event such as this, we don’t have a club ride.
We do this in the hope that we get as many club members out to help with said event.adyKeymaster30 September 2013 at 17:42Post count: 134JimDuffyParticipant30 September 2013 at 17:57Post count: 961
I am sure your right Al, think I am busy selling kit that day and wouldn’t like to step on the toes of all the other members eager to contribute to the club!!!Andy WoodParticipant30 September 2013 at 20:43Post count: 1066
Not marshalling Jim?! :-s Surely as the majority of the club will be at the race that would be the best place to take orders?JimWParticipant30 September 2013 at 21:00Post count: 328
BOOM ! …….
Touché Mr Wood….. 😎
If its a nice afternoon Jim, you can always come to the mills with me… 😉nofearParticipant2 October 2013 at 17:19Post count: 604
Seems like a few people want to get out for a ride after the RR………. don’t forget that it’s the Johnny Helms Invitation TT on Sunday and Dennis, Ewart, Dane, Caroline and me and previous winner Carl are all taking part. There will a good crowd watching and some stars from the past and present taking part on a 5.2 mile circuit centred around Allostock Village Hall. Looks like it may be the last running of this event so don’t miss it. It’s probably Ewart’s first TT since the early 1970’s I recon and back then he was a seriously fast National level time trialist!!
First team is off at 12:03, Dennis is off at 12:06, Caroline and me at 13:12 and Ewart and Dane at 13:33 and Carl at 13:50. It’s 20.8 mile TT completing 4 laps around Allostock and Goostrey.ShelaghParticipant2 October 2013 at 19:12Post count: 27
We’re marshalling at the RR and then going on to watch the Johnny Helms TT so will be cheering on Weaver am and pm. Looking forward to a fab day 🙂krisParticipant3 October 2013 at 12:25Post count: 635
Sounds like a plan! If it’s fine weather, I’m gonna bring the camera and get action shots of both racesAdyJappKeymaster3 October 2013 at 17:04Post count: 824EleanorParticipant3 October 2013 at 20:52Post count: 252
Thanks Kris, yes photos would be great. It will be good to have last years winner there, even if youre not ale to ride. I bet you’ll enjoy watching the scene of your first ever race win, a year on! Looks like its going to be a good race…and thanks to all of you who’re coming out to marshal, you’re all much appreciated believe me. We always get loads of compliments at this race about all our marshals and organising crew. See you all Sunday morning, HQ opens at 8.30 and marshals need to sign on by 9.30.
