Hilly 12/Hill Climb Sunday 12 Sept 10

Simon how could you let Jake beat you by 3 seconds, you just weren't trying hard enough! Well done Simon Trehearn not only fastest rider but 1st Handicap! Well done Andrew getting 2nd Handicap, lets hope that is a good Omen for our forthcoming "Gentleman's Event" assuming we get in, watch out Simon & Jake it's standard time that counts! Commiserations to Rachel had I have known you were so close I would have slowed down by 8 secs then we would have been equal in the Hilly 12. As for the Hill Climb, I think like Simon W, I too must lose some weight again for next year, the thought of being beaten by ladies on a hill makes me fall off at the start!

The Phoenix at Epsom

Some of the team promoting the Kingston Phoenix at Epsom on Sunday after the Hilly 12.
a very successful event thanks to the work of Steve Hillier and his team

Winner - guess the bikes' weight

The racing bike weighed 17lb 1oz / 7.75kg
The touring bike weighed 46lbs 5oz / 21kg
Total weight 63lbs 6oz / 28.75kg

Rick Opie came closest with a total of 63lbs; 18lbs and 45lbs

Well done Rick, who was the closest out of the 30 entries and wins half of the take. Not enough to buy a two week holiday in the sun, but probably enough to buy a bottle of sun tan lotion. Your winnings amount to £7.50 !

Thanks to all who helped today to make it a very enjoyable afternoon.

Two Up - Again



Maggie and I have been back to the Alps - the Alpes de Haute Provence, this time. We went on a CTC Tour led by Sheila Simpson, which was based on the Relais de Mont Ventoux, at Aurel in the Vaucluse. It is a very pleasant little hotel that deals well with cyclists.

Some of the participants drove - we did - the majority came on the Bike Bus, which worked well enough, but there is no doubt that a number found the 70k from Orange a bit of a slog. Last year, Chris Ellison met the group at the bus with a van and carried their luggage for them. That's the way to go, if you've got a choice.

The format was the choice of an easy ride or a hard ride on most days, or the option of independent touring. Most people did some and some - there were very few takers for the harder rides.

We ended up doing Ventoux twice. The first was the group ride on the Monday, with a screaming Mistral blowing and very violent winds. Having seen people blown down we walked from the Tommy Simpson memorial to the top, struggling to hold the tandem down. A lot of people gave up - it was very hard to stand on the top, bike or no bike. By contrast, we rode up on Thursday with another tandem and it couldn't have been nicer - warm, calm and easy riding.

All in all, a good trip - the Vaucluse is an excellent area for cycling with good weather, good roads and very little traffic. The food's good, too...

2010 Club Champion

Grant Pyke

Anyone know yet if this is our 2010 Club Champion?

Update: Grant has texted that he thinks he did 166 miles yesterday (on his trike, remember) - which makes him the Kingston Phoenix Road Club 2010 Club Champion.

Full results should appear here: http://www.kca12hour.org.uk/news.php#news15 on the KCA website, shortly.

Congratulations, Grant, riding all four Club Championship distances on a trike is quite an achievement, not to mention becoming Club Champion for the first time at the age of 74!

Dutch or Deutsch?




Just come back from a nice round trip to Frankfurt stopping off in Holland on the way back.
I only managed one day in the saddle to Alkmaar in Holland. A very pretty little town famous for it's cheese.
Here is a picture of the usual Dutch cycle complete with plastic flowers. Mel suggests that we adopt this as standard club kit for all bikes ;-)
The other pictures are from the impressive skyline in Frankfurt and of course a cheesy one from Holland again.

P.S. from Mel: They also sell these flowers in green, orange, yellow, pink..... very pretty indeed :-)

SCCU 25 TT

The KPRC Team minus John Beer who was still on course at time of photo posting our fastest time 1.01.56 and taking first handicap, snatching it from Nick Hostler with a 1.02.47. Well done Brian for getting the hadicap times to within less than a minute of each other except yours truly who was 3 mins outside last 25ml TT on actual time and 6mins out on handicap. You can't win them all!!
As an aside this charming lady while waiting for husband John to ride was adopted by the villiage hall cat who promply jumped into her car and made it's self at home while the lady was reading a magazine about Big Cats (zoom in)
