Club 10s  - 2015

This year the club 10 events will start on Tuesday evenings starting 7th April, and will run for 11 weeks until the last event on the 25th August. This will be running on the same course and previous years (UC186) with the HQ at old Down. There will be a greater need for volunteers from this year forward, as there will be more roles delegated, particularly with signage and time keeping. There also may be some changes to the Arthur Powel Trophy, but this has yet to be agreed.

To get the ball rolling on this, there is a club 10 organisation day (and social) where we can discuss the roles and find out who is willing to do what task during a given week. The venue will be at the Willy Wicket pub in Downend at 7pm on the 20th February 2015.


So that you are clear on the event dates for this year (they run fortnightly) they are as follows:

  • 07/04/2015
  • 21/04/2015
  • 05/05/2015
  • 19/05/2015
  • 02/06/2015
  • 16/06/2015
  • 30/06/2015
  • 14/07/2015
  • 28/07/2015
  • 11/08/2015
  • 25/08/2015

See you there!

We are trying to re-launch the Sunday club runs a bit as the attendance has been low at best this season.


Next Sunday is from Filton heading over the river for a fairly challenging but nice route.  Start is 9am at the Car park of the Air Balloon on Filton roundabout A38 / A4174 / B4056. (BS34 7PY, OS 601790) there are normally people joining on just after the Aztec roundabout as well.  Route description on the Sunday ride list page.

Boxing Day 10

Road work traffic lights have been dismantled. All being well the SRC end of season event is on.

Date: Friday 26 December 2014 First rider off: 10.01 a.m.

Start and meet on Wotton Road just north of lights at B4058 – B4058 junction. (OS 683838, BS37 9XA)

Course: UC101 - Iron Acton – B4058 – Bibstone and return.

Parking: There is plenty of parking at the Iron Acton Village side of the traffic lights. No one should park in the immediate vicinity of the start and finish areas please. Why not warm up by riding out?

Entry: Fee = £2.50. Entry on the line. If you are under 18 and did not ride a club evening time trial this year you will need a signed parental consent form, available off the CTT web site. Friends and family who are not in the SRC are welcome, either under the colours of their own club, or as ‘come and try it’ riders.

Weather: If the conditions look dubious check the forum, SRC web site, or call Bridget Boon (0117 9674437) to see if the event is still on.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SATURDAY CLUB RUNS

On the 29th of November we will start the first of our Saturday club runs at 7.30am from the Co Op on Winterbourne High St.  It is open to everybody including non club members and people with limited cycling experience and we will try and cater to quicker riders where possible too.  The route will remain the same each week and be 35 - 40 Kilometers in length on mostly major roads due the time of year and potential for icy conditions.  Please spread the word to anybody that could be interested and I look forward to seeing you all there!!

CX Sunday 26th Off


Sadly the weather has not let up and winter has not arrived so the final CX scheduled for this weekend has had to be cancelled.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CX Sunday 19th Off


Hi Everyone,i have been to netham to see the going and it is soft at
the moment.Having spoken to Andy the groundsman it is with great
reluctance we are going to cancel the event.Once we get an event in
Bristol CC park and they see how there is no damage created then I am
confident we can run our events without the worry of repair
costs.Please bear with us on this,at the moment football at this park
is not being played.had there not been more rain forecast then I am
certain we could have run this race.However we have Lockleaze the
following week so look forward to seeing you all there for our final
race.again my apologies mark
