Wattbikes TeamTime Trial
Saturday 2nd February at Collyweston Heritage Centre PE9 3PQ with a 10:00 start.
A very different format with the club Wattbikes for this event, and a new venue. The format is an inter club event in teams of 5. Each rider will complete 10 miles giving each team of 5 a combined 50 miles. The first rider from each team will ride their 10 miles starting at 10:00 and then after a couple of minutes break to adjust the bikes for the next rider, the second 10 miles will be completed with all teams starting each 10 miles simultaneously, and so on through the team. Note if your team is a rider short then one rider may ride twice or you could borrow a rider from another team, or if you have extra riders why not let them fill in for another team so everyone gets a ride?

In tosting the success of the winning riders with a specially brewed "Clare Ale" all enjoyed a hearty buffet before taking to the scenic courtyard garden to enjoy a lovely evening with a chat.

Mildenhall Cycle Rally 2013
The eagerly awaited details of this years Mildenhall cycle rally have been released and we can now take bookings for pitches.
It is our intention to take bookings directly as per last year and then send one payment to Mildenhall, so please get in touch.
You can read mroe about the event in a brochure you can download from here.
Plenty of Clarion clubmates have been along in the past so have a chat with them to find out how much fun for the whole family this trip can be.
These events are possible for anyone with a bike that can cope with a bit of off road riding. Most events have a mixture of cross bikes and mountain bikes, and as its run over a circuit no one can get left behind (well apart from on the first lap). The races are normally from 40 minutes to one hour (less for the younger riders). To compliment these events there will also be a few more off road rides coming up.
So if you fancy a change, why not give one of these a try. Many are local events, and there is one most weekends up to Christmas, and a few into the new year.
Please note the entry details for each event, and that if you want to score in a league series you should note the specific requirements of that league. As we are an Eastern region club, but also cose to the boundary with Central and the Lincolnshire league, you may choose to pick individual events that suit you, or compete in one league throughout the season. If you are unsure please ask.
As well as these league events we will be holding our own YOUTH ONLY cross races on 30th September, 28th October, 25th November & on 11th November there will be another GIRLS ONLY RACENIGHT, so please ride, help out, bring a friend or just help us to spread the word about these nights.
Please have a look through the spreadsheet for an excellent selection of local(ish) events.
So whether you fancy being the next cross expert like Sven Nys (left) or you think you're more of a crowd pleaser, why not give it a go?
