Below is a link to a downloadable PDF file containing all the details of the Willesden CC club rides. The list has been prepared by the Club Captain, Brain Moon, with the IT assistance of Seán Bannister.
The Club Track Championships will be held on Sunday 2nd September from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at Welwyn Track.
I have now booked the Lee Valley velodrome for Sunday 27th May from 9 a.m to 11 a.m. We are limited to 15 riders so let me know ASAP if you are riding. The cost is £20.00 and you will need to book and pay in advance.
Willesden CC member Dan Duncan-Jones is looking to sell his impressive Roberts Audax 27″ frame.
Dan bought the bike in 1989 (frame no. 8847) and it’s equipped with a Campagnolo Chorus triple, 10 speed, with a 29 sprocket on the back. The chain and cassette are new. The frame has been resprayed a couple of times and has always been put back together by the Bike Shop in North Harrow.
Dan say’s the bike is a reliable machine that can be used for either touring, commuting or as a training bike? It is on sale for £450.
If you are interested then please contact Dan via the comments section below.
I need some help, please, for the Willesden Reliability Rides which are being held on Sunday, 18th February.
Catering is taken care of by Vyv and her team.
I want the routes checked any time between now and the weekend beforehand.
On the Friday or Saturday route signage put up. This has to happen close to the event as it tends to get taken down by nimbys.
On the day, help at the start. You can be taking part in the event, it will just mean turning up by 0830 to help sign on etc. If you are not taking part I would be pleased to get some help with arrivals, depending on field size.
An event photographer to get some pictures for here and WCC website and as publicity for next year. It will involve being at the start and somewhere photogenic out on route.
Reasonable out of pocket expenses will be met and you will have my and the club’s gratitude as a reward.
Let me know by email to email@example.com. Thank you
This is on Sunday, February 18th. Some improvements have been made since last year and with reasonable weather it should be a great event.
It is an open event and Willesden CC members have no priority for places. Insurance limits the event to 200 riders. Last year we got over 100 ,with negligible publicity, since it was launched very late in the day following the passing away of Mike Ellison, who was running the event before me. This year it will be much better publicised and the intention is to sell out, so you may wish to register soon.
Details and online application can be found at http://www.willesdencyclingclub.co.uk/calendar/reliability-rides/
If you cannot pay online, then send me a cheque for £8 per entrant, made out to Ian
Oliver, with a note giving the name and email address or phone number of each entrant. The cheque must arrive no later than Monday 5th February and entrants paid for this way must be club members. I will be leaving an allocation of spaces for this which should be enough to give everyone doing it this way a place. You will need to fill out a form with some personal details at the ride start.
My address is 68 St Dunstans Ave, London W3 6QJ.

To make your lives easier we are now using a direct debit system. This will save you remembering to pay your subs for 2018 and following years, as the money will simply be taken from your account on New Years Day. Cancelling is easy too!
Remember: NO MONEY WILL BE TAKEN until January next year!
Online entries are now open for either a gentle 50Km ride or a definitely challenging 100Km and a bit ride, you can choose which you do on the day, both starting from Chalfont St Peter. Online entry is £8, on the day £10 – VyV and team’s excellent catering included, making it a smashing bargain.
Route improvements to the 100K take it off the A404 and and off the A40 at the end – but the hills are still there. Given what the lanes can be like in mid February there are no steep descents on any of them. The route will be signed, but this time not with the Willesden jungle green.
There is more info here.
Jayne Paine has been busy on the track and although she did the slowest pursuit she has ever done it was, however, good enough for GOLD. Jayne also picked up SILVERS in the 500m TT and the Points race. She did the Team Sprint but she said “the least said about that the better”.
Jayne couldn’t stay for the Scratch Race and she didn’t get up early enough for the Sprints, but she had a great weekend at the new indoor velodrome at Derby.
She is now “Now Knackered” – Jayne’s own words.
Well done Jayne, you are amazing!
The 31st of October is the end of our season for winning trophies and medals.
