Fenland Clarion Club Race Calendar 2021
Events for 2021 will include the Bluebell 10 mile race series and the popular Helpston Classic held over three laps of the Bluebell circuit. There will also be a couple of 25 mile TT’s on the Old A1 the Club 25 Championship starting at Alconbury, and the Cullip Cup starting at Connington. We’ll also be running the Championship 10 mile between Sawtry and Stilton, also on the Old A1. We finish the season with the two-stage Hill Climb at Ketton and Collyweston.
These TT’s are aimed at Club members but guests are welcome, however we do ask that after two races non-Fenland riders join the club, either as first of second claim, and help with marshalling and other race day duties.

2021 Youth Camping Trip - Placeholder
Hi to all
I'd just like to confirm that our 2021 youth section cycle camping weekend will once again be in Nene Park from Friday 25th June to Sunday 27th June.
There's no need to book at this stage, however you'll all be very welcome to attend what has previously been a popular and enjoyable weekend for all ages.
There is also an event on our Facebook page where you can discuss who's going etc.
So get the dates in your diary before it starts filling up, you wouldn't want to miss out.
Planned return for Youth Cycling

Clubruns update 6th July
The club committee would like to update you, the members, on the position regarding the possibility of returning to the regular organised clubruns we all enjoy so much.
The government guidance is that groups of up to six people (from different households) can meet and exercise outdoors and maintain a distance of at least 2 metres. We still feel it will be difficult to observe this guidance correctly and have our rides open to all so are not restating club runs at present.
In taking this decision, we are mindful not just of our members’ health, but also our responsibilities to the wider community as we all hope the general improvements made in the fight against Covid-19 continue.
We hope you still get out and ride responsibly with your friends and clubmates until the organised rides return; please feel welcome to use the clubs Facebook page to help you meet up and we will be meeting once again to discuss these further on 3rd August.
If TTs can restart...
Club committee to meet and discuss updated position from British Cycling
There is a lot of information coming out at the moment from the likes of British Cycling, Cycling Time Trials and the official Government messages themsevles.
With that in mind the club committee will virtually meet on 15th June to discuss the restarting of club activities as soon as we are able and its safe to do so.
All activities will only restart in accordance with the relevant guidance given by the relevant bodies.
In the meantime please refer to the British Cycling article here.
The key paragraph being....
Last week (Wednesday 27 May) we announced that all formalised group and club activity (including club runs, HSBC UK Breeze rides and similar) would be suspended until Saturday 4 July, and this suspension remains in place.
Thank you all for you patience, support and co-operation in what has been an unpreceded challenge for those who run the club.
