Join our Road Race "Team" - 2012 Local Race Calendar

Team B&DCC looks forward to the 2012 season with some key targets !!

Although our club has no tradition of road racing we are anxiously looking to reverse this trend in 2012 by Coaching and developing interested club members into competing in some of the more low key , local events next year

Our Road Race Team has started its journey in 2011 with Simon Travell taking part in a few events, and a few new riders with experience joining us.

We will soon offer coaching over the winter season to launch that team in 2012, if you are interested in becoming part of this team, please get in touch !

Sunday Club Run Programme

Our Sunday Club rides start outside the War Memorial in Bolsover every Sunday at 9am. There are 2 rides planned, a brisk "A Group" ride that rides around 50-60 miles in around 3-4 hours, and a steadier  "B ride" that aims for around 20 to 25 miles in around a 2hr ride.In all cases if you are planning on making the B ride, you must post a message on the forum indicating you are coming so that we can plan a ride leader in advance.

Please Note that B rides only currently take place from March to October

Both rides take the chance for a tea and cake stop at a local cafe

The routes are all planned on Mapmyride.com and can be downloaded as .GPX files for you to ride offline, happy for leader board times to be posted for any of the rides

Spiraling - Thursday Night Rides

 "Spiralling" is a trial ride of a new concept that meets several objectives :-

  • attracting new riders by making rides accesible to those with less experience
  • getting existing riders off their arses on dark winter nights
  • allowing progressive advancement for riders to more challenging distances

 

Thursday night rides take place ,meeting at 6:30pm from the Bolsvover District Council Offices , and consiss of several laps of a 10 mile route

 

Spiralling will restart in early March, weather permitting 

It is planned so that relative beginners can join just for one lap as the first 10 mile lap is ridden at a steady warm-up pace , and peel off when the ride passes back through the starting point - more experienced riders canthen do an additional lap

 

The pace of each lap will increase every lap to give a good workout for all, faster riders will potentially head of for a further third lap, or some hill repeats or some other pain mechanism...
