Its the opening day of our club TT season this weekend with the Place2Place at Folksworth. Steve Clarke tells you how to be a part of it below... The route and discussion thread are on Strava here.
10am start. Please let me know if you want to ride (for handicapping purposes) Entry Fee £4 on the day. Guests welcome (we do ask, if you are a non member and you ride two of events, that you then join the club 1st or 2nd Claim). Any questions message me.
Start 250 yards down the road from Folksworth - Oundle. Proceed through Washingley, Lutton and Polebrook and Ashton to roundabout at the A605 (Oundle). Turn and retrace course back through Ashton, Polebrook over Lutton crossroads and back past the start to turn left at the T junction towards Folksworth, proceed through Folksworth to Morborne where turn left, take the next left at cross-roads then the next left to the Finish opposite the start point. (21 miles approx) Parking on the grass verges near the start. Please keep off the road.
Alison Lilley takes up the tale and asks members what they think of a new brew...
The tea urn has been retired from the club 10s. Oh no!!!!
Instead we have a more portable 5 litre flask. Do your bit for the club & volunteer to fill it one week so everyone can enjoy a hot cuppa.
I'm also looking at getting some prefilled cups but you'd need to pay 20 pence per cup for the privilege unless the Treasurer (anyone volunteering?) says otherwise. This option would mean that no-one has to go & buy milk each week too. The options would be black coffee, white coffee, tea & hot chocolate. Any thoughts?
