We are organising a series of club litter cleaning events during this spring/summer, in particular targeting some of our popular cycling routes in the Borough or cycling paths which have a litter problem.  The aim is to be able to provide an enhanced cyclists experience on these routes and therefore helping to promote cycling within Calderdale in a litter free environment, together with contributing to the community and providing a greener planet.

 At our last monthly meeting the club agreed to carry out a litter pick on a popular cycling route within the Borough.  The road chosen is a 3 mile stretch of the West Yorkshire Cycle Route from Wainstalls, past the wind turbines to the Borough boundary. More specifically Withens RoadCold Edge Road from its junction with Lumb Lane to the Boundary with Bradford Council at Nab Hill.

We are therefore asking if you can for volunteer to litter-pick on
Sunday 15th March, we are meeting at the Spring Head Pub at Mount Tabor crossroads at 1.45pm (for a 2.00pm start)

All volunteers will receive a free drink at the pub on return (Tea and coffee also available!)

All Hi-Vis vests and litter picking equipment will be provided,
All we need is a couple of hours of your time!!

Open Hill Climb

A perfect day weather wise for the event. A sadly small field of just 26 was further reduced on the day by 7 dns.

The under 16 course record was broken twice, first by Tim Lane who reduced the record he already held at this point from 07.06.6 to 06.32.6 only to see the record taken away by Patrick Casey who reduced it further to 06.25.5 which was good enough to give him 8th place overall as well.

Fastest lady was our own Lorna Dodd with 08.20.9 and fastest man Kieran Wynne-Cattanach with 05.09.5.

Fastest Imp was Tom Brabbin with 07.25.7 in 12th place overall.

Thanks to all who assisted with marshalling etc.

Time trial training week eight, nine and ten

OK, so we got a bit behind but here's the missing trenight's worth of results. No PBs for anyone I'm afraid. However some riders have been putting the training to good effect in "proper" events recently. A well done to Imps in both the Any Wilson YCF 50 and the 12 hour.

Can we have a volunteer to produce a precis of this season's TT results for the IMPS??

Time Trial Training Week Seven (last week)

A few weeks were missed due to traffic lights/roadworks on the course.  Last week they had gone and the Hon. Chair did the timelording.  No PBs were in evidence so let us hope for better things this evening...

Time Trial Training Week Six

With the Timelord yet again absent earning loadsamoney (hah!) on overtime Mr Brabbin once again took on the onerous task of standing about at the road side looking conspicuous. A total of eight rode and Mr Brabbin thought (correctly) that  Mr Black had done a PB which was indeed correct but in addition, Messrs Pierpoint and Heyes had also managed to get one in. Chapeau gents.
