100 in 8, April 19th 2015

Join Law Wheelers for the 100 in 8

100 in 8 - April 2014
100 in 8 is a simple challenge on paper; cover 100 miles in 8 hours (or less).

Law Wheelers leave Cooper Bros. Garage in Wishaw, at 9am heading out to Peebles and Innerleithen, returning to Cooper Bros within the 8 hour slot. It's not a race, banter and encouragement is required to make sure all make it to the end.

Mick noted minutes from Scottish Cycling West Club Forum in which a development group was organised. This was something we were not made aware of. I contacted Morven Brown (The RDO for our new region) who did not appreciate our club was being affiliated to the "West". She has forwarded the West Newsletter which hopefully you can access here and is going to phone me to find out a bit more about our illustrious club,

Draft Scottish Cycling Events 2015

As Club Secy. I have had an email from Janette Hazlett with the draft events for 2015. Some of these may not appear as yet on the BC calendar but may be useful if you are planing your races for next year.

I have copied the email which explains it better than I would,

To:  Event Organisers
        Club Secretaries

Please find attached a spreadsheet which has

·          Details of all the Championship and Road and Track Dates for 2015 (Sheet 1)
·         A Draft Calendar for all SC events during 2015 
 (Sheet 2)

During the course of the next month organisers will be putting the events onto the BC  calendar but if you want to share this information with your club members please do so.  Remind them that the Draft calendar  is only a draft and to check the BC calendar to make sure that the event is happening.    (Thought this might be useful for your members to plan their busy racing seasons).  If the event is currently showing in PINK then it’s already showing on the BC calendar.

There are some clashes but they have been unavoidable and every effort has been made for this not to happen.  However the positive thing is that racing membership is continually on the increase so I don’t see many event suffering from lack of entries. 

It would be appreciated if all organisers please start to put their events onto the BC calendar as soon as possible – to help riders get organised for the year.     We are still looking for organisers for the Team Time Trial and Closed Circuit Champs which incorporates the Youth Road Race Championships – if anybody is able to do this please contact me.

Hope everybody has a good racing season.   Please do not hesitate to contact me if there are any queries.

Merry Cross Mass & New Years Day Run

Tis the season to be Cross...fa la laa la laaa, la laaa la laaaaah.

Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all, especially Law Wheelers. May 2015 bring you all the successes you wish for (off or on the bike!).

The club are looking forward to a busy year ahead.

Expectations are high that the club will have good participation in all disciplines of cycling, from Cross and mountain biking, to the track, and moving onto Audax and Sportives. And for those venturing into the racing scene, some points to be had.

There's a huge number of fallen trees as a result of the recent blustery and wet weather in Chatelherault, so be careful if riding around there. As well as the pictured lump
blocking the route along the Calder at the top of Strathclyde Park.

Finally, the New Years Day run will taken place at Newmains Cross, 10am start. Be there or be... hungover. Likliehood of a coffee stop is low.
