Yuletide Lunch, 4 January 2015
We will again visit the Woodhouse Arms at Corby Glen http://www.thewoodhousearms.co.uk/for our Yuletide Lunch on 4th January 2015. This is very much a social event, with an easy club run out and back to meet family & friends ( all welcome!) for lunch. The club run will go from Helpston at 10 am for an easy ride of around 18 miles, with lunch at noon and an easy ride back before it gets dark. Family and friends who go by car will find plenty of parking at the Woodhouse Arms.
Last year the meal and welcome were excellent, and this year the same menu is even better value at £15 for 2 courses or £18 for 3 courses. Also a good range of real ales! See link below to the Woodhouse Arms website and click on "Christmas" for the menu.

Bluebell Results and Final Overall 2014
FOURTEEN year old Jerry Norman edged thirteen year old Mia Purnell by just five points to take the Fenland Clarion's season long Bluebell Series. The popular 10 mile events on a Wednesday night throughout the summer often produce spirited racing, with the main award being handicap based. Both riders improved massively throughout the season and that is the secret to success in the Bluebells but Norman nicked the win. It may have gone the other way had Mia competed in just one more round. Norman raced in 12 events with 9 to count, while Purnell only took part in 9. Third place went to Clarion newcomer Colin Isles, who was 10 points adrift of the Mia, while Barbara Gunn finished in 4th place overall. This season saw Dave Langlands break his own 13 year old club record by 10 seconds with 21.19, although that ride was done in the Hereward League event (on the Bluebell cicrcuit) in June. Prize money and trophies will be awarded at Saturday’s Club Dinner at the Farmers in Yaxley. See other story above.
FOR SALE: Specialized Roubaix sport triple
A club member has decided to sell his road bike due to back issues and buy a flat bar bike, so good opportunity for someone else....
It is a 2013 Specialized Roubaix sport triple. It is as bought and not been altered from new apart from having Shimano pedals fitted.
"I have only done about 200 miles on it, so it is as good as new".
Mountain Bike Rides Return
Starting on Saturday 20th December meeting at Burghley Estate, see calendar entry for details. If there is sufficient interest then they could become more regular, so let us know if you'd like more.
Wattbike Racing is back
On Friday 12th December we will be back for some more indoor racing down at the Embankment Athletic Track. Suitable for all riders from around age 10 and upwards, so an ideal chance for the seniors and youths to race together with individual and team events. Please let Malc know in advance if you can to help organise the events, although entries will be taken on the night.
Youth Racing Nights
The results for the Autumn series are now on the British Cycling website, and we hope to get some dates out soon for some spring races.
