Run & Bike Fun-Day 30 April
Our new Kit for 2016...
Our season kicked off in April with our Sunday morning and Thursday evening time trials, which are an ideal way to give competitive cycling a try. Anyone from age 12 can compete and you can use any bike you like, so long as it is roadworthy. The aim is to set a time around a fixed distance course, and try to better it the following week. It becomes addictive!
For riders aged 6 to 16, our Go-Ride club on Saturday mornings offers training by our certified coaches. Please see here for details.
Once you have some experience, you may want to aim for a place in our racing teams under the BRRT banner (Beds Road Racing Team). Riders showing promise will be invited to become a team member, provided places are available.
Team members have their own kit to differentiate them from the standard club riders, and take part in more structured training sessions to fine tune their potential.
Here are some of the team at our 2016 Road Race on 8 May at Great Barford
L-R: Kieron Lewis, Daniel Sibley, Matt Donovan, David Cook, Mick Case, Jon Friend, Peter Gell, Simon Norman (Cap.), Patrick Smith, Mark Wenham, Mark Gray, Matthew Cook, Paul French. Thanks to Andy Smith for the photo!
Most of our time-trial events start and finish outside our club-house - pop in afterwards for a tea, coffee, cake etc - service with a smile!
The club has an active social side too, with social rides, BBQ's, quiz nights and an annual awards ceremony to celebrate peoples' successes during the year.
