Reliability rides are getting more popular and it is important for everybody’s safety a few basic principles of riding in a group are observed.

1. Please support the organising club by registering and paying the entry fee.
2. Whilst riding this event, you are representing yourself, your club, the SCCA and the sport of cycling.
3. It’s not a race; there are no prizes and no points to be earned.
4. You are responsible for your own safety and for that of your fellow riders.
5. Follow the Highway Code and respect other road users – even if they don’t respect you
6. Be courteous to drivers, horse-riders and other road users, even if they are not courteous to you.
7. Make sure that you know the route or have a map of it. Make a note of any emergency contact numbers.
8. Make sure you are self-sufficient and carry tools, spares, money, phone, wet weather gear and anything else you may need.
9. Ride no more than two abreast. Ride single file when it isn’t safe to ride in pairs.
10. Call out when you are passing someone and only ever pass on the right.
11. Point out hazards to your fellow riders and call out “Car up”/”Car back” or “Car down” when there are vehicles.
12. Try to only cross junctions when the entire group can cross. If this isn’t possible wait on the other side so that riders left behind aren’t tempted to take chances.
13. Do not use mobile phones while riding. Stop at the side of the road to make or receive a call.
14. No ‘selfies’ while on the move.
15. At least one hand on the bars at all times. No donning or removing of clothing on the move.
16. Dispose of gel wrappers or any other litter at the finish, not on the course.

With cycling getting ever more popular we need to ensure that everyone stays safe, and that we do not alienate the authorities. Although these guidelines have been produced for reliabilities many of them are equally appropriate for club runs etc.

Please remember the guidelines above and enjoy the rides.

Thank you

Good Luck…

31 08 2018

to those taking part in the Nova Raiders Charity Pedal and a Pint “Giro d’Joules” on Saturday 1st September. We have a strong turnout from our ladies section who are doing the 55 mile route – Dawn Heath, Helen, Davis, Jo Day and Jennifer Ellison – good luck girls

On Sunday we have 5 riders in the TLI Cycling, Lapierre Road League Event 7, “The Parkinson Memorial Road Race” hosted by Macclesfield Wheelers on the Siddington circuit – Bill Young, Steve Jones, Paul Mason, Steve Booth and Mike Wilson.   Have a strong ride gents

This race is pretty much the last event for the local TLI events.    Attention will soon turn to cyclocross racing where cold weather and mud are the main ingredients – bring it on!!





2018 July Series – review and results

26 07 2018

Another July Series is done and dusted – where did those 4 weeks go to?

Thanks are extended to everyone who had anything to do with the events – riders, marshals, Bike Marshals, lead car drivers, sign on team, Guides and Brownies staff for the catering, the local residents for putting up with the disruption, rider supporters, Cheshire Constabulary, West Mercia Police and fellow club members who pitched in to make it a very successful series

We must also thank the weather with 4 weeks of warm, sunny racing – that’s a first !!

Overall rider numbers were excellent and having experimented with a “block” selection system for marshalling it seems to work well and will be used again

Results for each of the events can be seen by following the links    Prize money will be sent to riders within the next few days

Event 1 results       Event 2 results    Event 3 results    Event 4 results

We wish everyone a safe and successful continuation of their racing and we look forward to seeing you back in Audlem next season
