Due to the high winds, rain and standing water on the course, we have decided to cancel Sunday’s two up TTT race on the P459/10/20 miler 08/03/2020.
Our Apologies for any inconvenience.
It is a two-up time trial and is a nice event to enter to get the legs going after weeks/months training in the wet freezing cold weather through winter. Being a two-up is also nice because your not alone and you get some brilliant company on the way round 🙂
It is a 10 or 20 miles time trial on the P459 Gallows Hill course, starting at 10:00. This is a team event, but individual entries are permissible.
Please put your name down on this site in the comments section below which will help us to get a start sheet going, but as always entries on the line will be accepted. Please indicate if you intend to do 10 or 20 miles (one or two circuits), and partner if entering as a team – or do a shout out for someone to partner with!
The event is as inclusive as possible, open to Poole Wheelers members and non-members. Please note that if you are not a member of another CTT affiliated cycling club, you can still ride by signing on as a day-member of Poole Wheelers when you arrive at the event.
Strava segment of the course below (10 miles version, you do it twice for the 20 miles version), and club records for the course are on our results page.
If you want to ride you need to book your place NOW- -send e-mail to email@example.com
You need to do this by Sunday 1st March
Below is a copy of earlier post with details of all the winter Calshot dates and information on how the sessions will be run
We will this winter have 5 sessions at Calshot along with Palmer Park from Reading – we will be restricted to 20 riders per session I will collect names nearer the time for now here are the dates for your Diaries
2/11/19 – 14.00-17.00 07/12/19 – 14.00-17.00 04/01/20 – 13.00-16.00* 01/02/20 – 14.00-17.00
07/03/20 – 14.00-17.00
Cost £5.00 per session
These sessions will be open to all members, and will be ideal for someone who has not ridden the track before and wants to come along and learn, but also for experienced riders.
The emphasis will be on learning to ride the track safely and competently in a group – yes, there will be some times when you will be required to work harder, but also times when you can have a bit of fun; after all, it will be winter then and not too many of you will still be racing. Depending on the take up, we can increase the intensity of the sessions in the New Year when some of you will be building up towards the new season.
Remember this is Calshot – NO big gears, 81” is ideal – I will be checking!!! (U16’s use an U14 gear).
If you don’t have a track bike, these can be hired at the track, cost is £10.00 for seniors and £7.50 for juniors (u18).The hire bikes are fitted with Look Keo pedals. Shoes are also available for hire at a cost of £3.50.
Pedals are not allowed to be changed on Hire Bikes
However we do have some club bikes so if you need one please contact me before and we will see if we have one you can borrow.
There are good changing / shower facilities at the track should you require these after the session.
