CTT National 25 mile TT, L2529 (A66 Keswick Cockermouth Course) – Sunday 8th August 2021

Mike Smith, Asst Open Event Sec for the North District has on behalf of the North District agreed to organise the National 25 mile TT which this year will be held on the A66 west of Keswick, course L2529.  The event, starting at 7:00am on Sunday August 8th, will be split into 3 sections, Men, Women and Junior/Juvenile.

As usual this event needs the support of volunteers willing to be marshals. We anticipate approximately 12 peoples would be adequate.  Please let me know if you wish to volunteer to marshal and if so whether you have a preference for any section and I will forward this to Mike Smith.

If you wish to apply to enter the event the closing date is before 14th July 2021 and can be entered online at the links above.

On behalf of Border City Wheelers,

Lee Foster

Protocol for BCW Club Events 2021

The BCW Protocol has been posted on the Club Time Trials page and this must be followed when attending club events this year, either as a competitor or official.
These measures are necessary to comply with the CTT (Cycle Time Trials) COVID risk assessment.
It’s not exactly a return to normal but a new normal for the time being, which is a start at getting back to our sport.
Further information will be posted on our website regarding the requirements for riding the R2R and Beacon Wheelers club events.

Group Riding Guidance

Statement from British Cycling:

From 29 March, under the Government’s roadmap formally organised outdoor sport and physical activity in England is able to restart and will not be subject to the ‘Rule of Six’ gatherings limit. As a result of this, British Cycling is pleased to say that at this stage our affiliated club and recreation programme rides, which adhere to our Covid-secure guidance, will be able to take place in groups of up to 15 people.

We know that many groups will prefer to keep riding in smaller numbers at this stage, which is why we’re encouraging groups to plan activities in a way which suits them best, and we will be providing additional support and guidance for those that need it.

Please note that informal group rides (i.e. groups of friends meeting up to ride together) must follow the Rule of Six, as this falls outside of the Government’s definition of formally organised outdoor sport and physical activity.
