I am the organiser of the Tommy Godwin RR on 4 June, which is a Stallard event. I have obtained police permission to run the 3 races with the following limits on rider numbers: AB 40, CD 40, E+ 30. I have taken entries from 27, 31 and 24 riders on RiderHQ, with up to a further 40 riders as reserves in each race. I have discussed the selection policy with the organisers of the Stallard series and I will apply the following selection criteria: preference will be given to (in order): riders who have gained any points in the series so far, organisers of LVRC or TLI events, club members supporting LVRC or TLI events, other riders.
12/04/2017 - 2017 CRIT CHAMPIONSHIPS UPDATE
2017 National Criterium Championships.
A B C Categories – UPDATE
As you are probably aware Nick Selibas the organiser of the 2017 Criterium Championships is having a problem with circuit availability on Saturday 2nd September in that it is no longer available.
Therefore, the C category race will be moved to Sunday 3rd September and run along with D E F G H at the same venue.
The races for A and B categories will be run at Milton Keynes Bowl.
Huge thanks to Chris Gunter and other members of Region 7 for stepping up to organise these races.
They will be run on Saturday July 22nd .
Start time will be 0930 for A Category. 11.30 for B category. Each race will be one hour in length.
Chris has managed to get all the officials covered but will need help marshalling on the day and we need 10 per race. We are working on the basis that B’s will be available to marshal the A’s and A’s will stay and be available for the B’s. There will be at least one hour between races to allow changing and warm up. We already have a number of helpers from CC Luton and Team MK who will help - thank you to them.
Entry will be via RiderHQ only and this will be up as soon as possible along with further details.
Chris will put a note out about marshals nearer the event date.
Chris Gunter / Don Parry.
10/04/2017 - TOACHIM VETS/PS+CYCLEWEAR SERIES - 2017
TOACHIM VETS/PS+ CYCLEWEAR SERIES 2017
Gentlemen, please be aware that there is a round of the Series at Crowhurst in Surrey on 21st May. The morning events that incorporate the Region 9 Championships for A,B.C, and D are full, but the entry for the afternoon E/F/G/H/I event is disappointingly low.
Come on you older guys, I know you are usually used to racing in the morning, and getting home for your other leisure pursuits, but please support the Series.
The circuit is gently undulating and fully rideable, and should suit everyone. It also has nearby Motorway access.
Additionally, you could come out and help with the morning races, and, if you do, you will be given a partial refund. Let promoter Colin Smith know if you can.

07/04/2017 - NAT CRIT CHAMPS. HELP NEEDED
TO ALL LVRC MEMBERS
NATIONAL CRITERIUM CHAMPS 2017. September 2nd and 3rd.
Organiser Nick Selibas has been let down on the circuit availability for these Championship races and it is no longer available for the Saturday.
It is impossible to run separate races for all age groups in one day on the Sunday.
We are therefore asking if there is somebody / some group of people / clubs who could step forward and help by running some of these age group championships for some of the age groups.
The ideal solution would be, for example, if the A, B, and or C races could be held somewhere else. It could be on a different date.
If anybody can step forward and help in this way the whole of the LVRC will be most grateful.
Please contact me on my email with any ideas or offers

03/04/2017 - TOACHIM VETS/PS+CYCLEWEAR SERIES - 2017
TOACHIM VETS/PS+CYCLEWEAR SERIES 2017
The first round of this years Series promoted by GS Vecchi will take place near Basingstoke this coming Sunday (9th April).
I look forward to meeting you all once more at the event.
However, there is one thing I want to draw to everyone's attention. I shall once more be putting out the collection boxes for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research in the Race HQ. This is the preferred charity of one of our sponsors Andrew Wills. You can't miss them - they are red and white, and they will be placed at the Signing-On and at the Catering Counter, so please put something in them.
This charity is now called Bloodwise, and they were delighted with what they received from last year's Series.
I shall be displaying their Thank-You Certificate in the Race HQ, and, remember - in the words of a well-known phrase - Every Little Helps. Thank you in advance.

29/03/2017 - CHEAP first aid course at Darley Moor
Note - please respond direct to Eddie Nelson - email@example.com
We at Darley Moor are very concerned at the high cost of providing First Aid cover for cycling and other events.
We now have an impressive Training facility at Darley Moor. We also have access to trainers within the medical profession.
We are, subject to enough people seeking training, arranging a first aid course at Darley Moor for Sunday 30th April from 10.00 – 17.00. The course will qualify the students for a Certificate for three years. The Course is basically the one day “First Aid at Work Course” with additional training suitable for cycle incidents.
As Darley Moor is not interested in making a profit out of this course we have priced it at £50.00 per student including a finger buffet lunch together with tea and coffee.
To enable planning can I ask that is you have anyone interested in taking part in the course you let me know as soon as possible so that I can book the instructor. The maximum number of students in the class is 12 but if required a second training day will be organised later in the year.
I would be grateful for a reply to this e-mail even if it is a total negative by the 10th April. firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for reading this e-mail.

06/03/2017 - LVRC INSURANCE 2017 UPDATE
An updated 2017 Insurance certificate will be put on the web site very shortly for your use when required this year.
Please note the LVRC premium will be paid week commencing 13th March - so we are all covered!
This note will also go on the LVRC web site and FB page.
Motor Vehicle Cover for LVRC Volunteers
We have recently been checking the issue of insurance for lead/following car drivers. This is the current position:
- Motoring insurance providers generally seem to consider that driving a lead or following car for a cycle race is covered as ‘social, domestic and pleasure’ use, providing no payment (other than expenses) is involved;
- The LVRC third party insurance includes 'contingent' cover for drivers of vehicles being used on LVRC business. This means that if a driver was not covered by their own insurance policy for some reason, the LVRC insurance would provide third party cover.
- If lead/following car drivers wish to be sure about their insurance cover, they should contact their own insurers, emphasising that they are assisting in the running of a cycling race as a volunteer in furtherance of their hobby.
Official race helpers do not receive a payment - they are using their vehicle in the pursuit of a hobby, they are not participating in a racing event but assisting in the running of the event. Only if the driver’s own policy does not operate for some reason will the LVRC policy operate.

02/01/2017 - LVRC - Chairman's Message 2017
A new website is currently being developed with a fresh theme that is capable of being updated and changed as and when required by ourselves without the need for third party intervention. It is based on Wordpress, which is easy to self author and develop, and this will negate us having to ask a single web development company to carry our update work for us that is simple to do on a more modern platform.
The content will remain much the same, with fresh features such as an interactive event calendar directly linked to the RiderHQ calendar as well as a standardised Results Page and hyperlinks to social media such as Facebook. But more on this in the next two months.
Again, we'll need volunteers to keep the content up to date and lively, so if you know anything about Wordpress and you want to help out a little, please get in touch with Colin Smith firstname.lastname@example.org who is the NEC member responsible for the website nowadays.
