From KitManDave.
It’s almost September and that means that dark nights and freezing weather will shortly be upon us. So that you can keep riding I’ve been in touch with the kit supplier to enquire about an order of long sleeved thermal jerseys. These are the same design as previous years with fleecy lining and will cost less than £65 each. I won’t know the exact figure until I place the order.
This year they can be customised with additional reflective tape and zipped rear pocket for an additional £5 (so less than £70 for the jersey).
I need an order of 10 and because they’re a high value item I’ll be asking for a deposit. If you are interested please let me know via email before the end of September how many you’d like and in what size and whether you’d prefer with or without the pocket and tape.
 
If you’re interested, let me know by Email.

Another typical SRC Evening '10' night, rain, just before the event, sun eventually arrives, drying roads, headwind along the Avonmouth Road.......how many times have we seen that this year. Despite those conditions there were 3 new riders, 5 Pb's and a new Senior Mtb record. Best of the Pb's was Matthew Franklin (Bristol Road Club 43sec), Nathan Anscombe (Bristol Road Club) 40secs, Paul Merryweather (Bristol Road Club) 16secs, Greg Lancaster (VC Bristol) 13secs and Andrew Hollom (Severn Road Club) 2secs. Best lady was Carol Powell (Severn Road Club) and leading Junior was Noah Godman (Severn Road Club)(J13) Eteinne Georgi was the fastest J12-J15) and new CATI rider, James Foster, established the new 'Senior' Mtb record, on a proper one too.
Concluding the 2012 series this week, Freddie Lewton (Dream Cycling) was top man and last night took his number of event wins to 8 (1,2,5,10,15,17,19 & 20) 2nd was (V46) Ian Dunn (Sodbury CS) and 3rd
Paul Merryweather (Bristol Road Club) 4th place went to Peter Georgi Giant CC - Halo Films. Peter had 10 wins in the series (3,4,6,7,8,9,11,12,13 & 18)........so, that concludes the series until April 16 next year. A final chance to thank my ever present brilliant team of David Ashton, Paul Chapman, Brian Kington, John Tyler and regular stand-in Ian Woolford. Last, a mention of Bernie Brown, present at all 20 events, helping me tirelessly to make the event run smoothly and safely. Thank you Bern, you are the star of the Series. Well done too to our webmaster for posting all the results and reports and to Steve Hocter for the AP Series results each week. Of course the series could not be run without the weekly contribution from the Club Member volunteers who 'do' the start. Trevor Roberts and Shaine Lewis, volunteer helpers last night, thank you. I am sure everyone involved will support me in dedicating this years successful series to the late Cyril Slocombe who took great pride in his beloved Severn Road Club promoting the Series year in year out.

An email I got today was nice and well worth shareing.  Anyone remember Brian and want the email address let me know.

 

My name is Brian Hunt. You don't know me but I'm betting that I was a member of the Severn Road Club before you were born.

 

 I joined when I was about 14, back in 1958, when the Club regulars included Gordon Old, his wife Judith, Sid Marks, Brian Kington, Ray Dell, Doug Bunn, Dave Southey, Ron Bradley and my hero at that time, Pete Davey. Club nights were held in the Community Centre at Kingswood and consisted mostly of 'bopping' to Buddy Holly and Everly Brothers records and holding anorak-type discussions about cycling equipment. Cinelli and Claud Butler for frames, Campagnolo for derailleur gears, TA for chainsets, Mafac and Weinmann for brakes and Dunlop for 'tubs' are the name that spring to mind. The catalogue for all our cycling equipment was Bike Riders' Aids and I've still got a couple of copies from those years - price 8d (3p in today's money) from Bill Fisher at the Kingswood Cycle Depot, Two Mile Hill. Example: Campagnolo pedals were top-flight kit and, at £4 a pair, very expensive.

 

I cut my teeth on time trials on a borrowed bike over a 25 on the Old Sodbury Course and, apart from another one a year or so later over the same course (1:8:6) took no part in competition cycling again. I came somewhere high up in the handicaps and got a beautiful, engraved, silver-plated 'medal' for each ride. I thought that road racing was too rough-and-tumble although I used to go and watch it when Sunday club runs took us there.

 

My principal interest was in the Sunday outings for what I suppose was training but I took as a sight-seeing excursion. I even did a couple of 12hr and 24hr 'reliability trials' in the general direction of Birmingham but never received my well-earned certificates (organised by Bristol South CC, I seem to remember).

 

I gave up club cycling in 1963 when I went off to Swansea University, got embroiled - as you do - with wine, women and song, and never went back to it. My old Ian Steel Viking is still in my garage, covered in dust and unused for many years but I can't bring myself to part company with it. On the crossbar I had painted 'SEVERN ROAD CLUB' and it's still there, though rather chipped in places. Every time I look at it, it brings back happy memories.

 

Long live 'The Severn'!

 

Best Wishes

 

Brian Hunt
