BBC has released its post Vuelta podcast and there is a fair amount of interest for Clarionista's with the Chairman of the Bury Clarion, first club of the Yates Twins interviewed.
You can get directly to the episode to listen online here. Or just search it in your favourite podcast app (such as Apple podcasts, Spreaker, Castbox).
To aid the celebrations why not invest in a National Clarion jersey to go with your Fenland kit.
Stocks are still available and you can contact Ian Clarke here to enquire.
Be more considerate to your clubmates on club runs and fit one of these Clarion mudflaps to your rear mudguard. You do run mudguards don’t you?
Clarion Mudflaps £7 each. Message Steve Clarke you want one.
Hi to all
We have the opportunity to have a session on the Derby Velodrome during half term, with a road bike session as well. The format would be a road bike session in the morning followed by a break before the track session. Suitable bikes are provided and the session is for ages 9 - 16 years. Note there may also be an opportunity on the same day for a one hour session for adults. This will depend on us getting suitable numbers to justify the session and a swift response is required if interested. The youth session would be £25 and i'll confirm on the adult price when I have it.
Monday 22nd October 11-1 outside and 2-4 on the trackMonday 22nd October 10-12 outside and 1-3 on the track with adults either 12-1 OR 3-4Tuesday 23rd October 10-12 outside (times tbc as maybe earlier to give a break) and 12-2 on the trackThursday 25th October 11-1 outside and 2-4 on the trackThursday 25th October 10-12 outside and 1-3 on the track with adults either 12-1 OR 3-4
Please let me know if interested and the dates/times you would be available. This session will only go ahead if we can get 16 riders going, which might be a struggle, so please let me know if interested for youths and/or adults.
It's that time of year again when the club has been asked to support the wheelchair athletes doing the half marathon. Event day is Sunday 14th Oct. If you would like to support this event please email me. So far there is only 2 athletes registered. We will need 2 riders supporting the lead chair and 1 for each subsequent entry.
Please note the number of wheelchair athletes, and consequently the number of cycling escorts required, will be confirmed prior to the day. So you won't have a wasted trip.
Please let Malc know if you are interested in an adult cross skills session this coming Friday 21st Sept.
Here's a date for next years diary.
Next year our cycle camping trip next year will be returning to Ferry Meadows and for two nights this time, Friday 14 & Saturday 15 June. So there will be a bit more time there, with a range of rides on offer, and you can choose one or two nights. More details nearer the time, but don't say we didn't give you enough notice!
Please note that the clubs photography competition will also be judged and trophy awarded at this years club presentation night. As this wasn't awarded last year all photos from November 2016 will be eligible. Please send your entries via a digital file to me at the e-mail below, or if you'd prefer an A4 print by Saturday 17th November.
This year’s club presentation night tickets are now on sale.
I will have them on clubruns and at the Cullip Cup, although if neither of these are convenient please just let me know.

Well done to Simon Yates from your fellow Clarionistas down in Fenland.
It was breezy and brisk this morning for the 13 participants in the club 25.
Here are the times. Thanks to all the volunteers who gave up their time for the riders to ride.
After the summer concentration of events based around Helpston and the north of Peterborough, the Cullip Cup is an excursion to the south and Connington fen.
The Cullip Cup is a 25 mile time trial based on the old A1 and a rural circuit taking in both Connington and Holme.
The course starts in the village before heading south down the old A1 past Alconbury Hill and up towards the airfield. It turns before Stukely and then heads all the way back north past the start picking up the N1/10 route from Sawtry to Stilton. This is the fatest part of the course and has regularly attracted sub 20 minute rides in its short format.
On the way back from Stilton the course takes a left at the war memorial and water tower before snaking through Connington and heading along the shallow false flat to the airfield. It then completes a loop to finish just pas the start on the opposite side of the lane.
There is an end of season feel to this race and its a really key event in the club championships.
If you are planning on riding, please let Steve Clarke know.
This Friday evening 7th September there will be our regular youth session at the Embankment Athletic Track from 6:30 - 7:30. Also we will have the stock of club kit, both youth & seniors, and the Elmore kit samples to try the full range of club clothing available. Anything not currently in stock can be ordered on the night.
On Saturday we will have of our young riders competing in the final of the National Youth Time Trial Championship (G.H.S.) over 10 miles near Attleborough.
Sunday we have our three regular clubruns starting from Helpston, while some of our young riders will be riding in the Ashwell Grasstrack meeting and the Cyclocross season gets underway with the first round of the Leicestershire league.
Whatever you do, Enjoy your cycling.
On Friday 7th September there will be a club kit night at the Embankment Athletic Track from 18:30 - 19:30, with free parking if you require it in the adjoining Regional Pool car park, or of course you could cycle down.
