18/05/2017 - WAKEFIELD AND DARLEY MOOR RACES

Message from organiser Ken Corbett

I have organised an event at Darley Moor, on Saturday, 3rd June, which is 2 weeks away.

I have 11 entries.

I am prepared to wait until mid-day Friday 26th May, for further entries, but unless there is a dramatic improvement, I shall cancel the event at 4pm that day.

 Also I have organised an event at Wakefield Thomas a Becket circuit on Saturday 8th July.

 I shall examine the entries received 2 weeks before that event on Saturday 24th June, and again if insufficient entries received, shall cancel the event.

 I am very sorry to have to make these decisions, and I accept that a lot of riders like to see what sort of day it is going to be, before making a decision to ride.   However, the circuits have to be booked, and help arranged, and I have 140 mile round trip to Darley Moor.  

Also it is very unfair to continue with a race when there is plainly insufficient riders for a cafe ride.   Continuing in the hope of entries on the day is not an option.

 I have organised a race at Wakefield circuit this Saturday.  I have 8 entries for the ABCD race, with no A riders.

 

There are 14 entries for the EFGH race.   A post about this has been put on Facebook, and I have the promise of entries on the day, but that is all they are. That race is going ahead.

12/05/2017 - 11th June Team MK RR update

Dear Competitors

I would like to inform all entrants to the LVRC Team MK Road Races,that due to recommendations from the Bucks Council we have decided to change the course.

The new circuit is known as the Foxley Circuit and is 12 kms in length.

Race HQ will now be at the Towcestrian Rugby Club on the Towcester Road near Greens Norton.   NN12 8AW.

Due to field size restrictions the ABC race and the FGH over 65 competion road race will be held in the morning, starting 09.00

The DE race will start at 13.30.

I am really sorry for the change and realise this may inconvenience some riders. Please email me if this is the case and I will refund.

Yours Jeff Hathaway

25/04/2017 - MK BOWL RIDERS PLEASE NOTE

As you may know this year we are piloting chip timing for the above series. This is a very exciting time and we are looking forward to it.

To ride the Tuesday events you will need to purchase/hire a chip for your bike, details below:-

Hire:- for those riders who only ride between 3-5 events of this series we have made a provision to hire a chip for the evening for you. This will be on a first come first served basis as we only have 10 chips and will cost £10 per event to hire. For your reference, signing on will open at 6pm and close at 6.40pm, the race starts at 7pm.

Purchase :- A chip costs £35 and works out to approx £2.40 per event. We also have new coloured numbers and armbands so that each category A-G has it's own colour, this will assist riders in the bunch to spot the other riders in their own category. This year there will be a £5 refundable deposit on numbers/armbands.
All chips need to be registered against your email details IN ADVANCE of the races so to clarify.... you cannot purchase a chip and race on the same night as we cannot physically process this easily at signing on.
To facilitate with this system, I am prepared to register your chip for you in advance and bring it to the first event on the 2nd May for collection. You can then just fit it and ride.
To do this you will need to transfer by BACS the £35 (or £40 if you want to pay your number deposit too) to account 22810421, sort code 23-05-80, please ensure that your reference for this BACS transfer is your full name. Once you have done this please let me know by email at paulandtrudie@sky.com with your name, age cat, LVRC region and club and upon receipt of your payment I will register your chip for you.
Please also note that this year signing on will close 20 minutes prior to the race start time.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me. I feel this is the most efficient way of managing this system but ask for your support during the learning curve.

Best wishes
Trudie Bird

25/04/2017 - Region 9 News from Richard Wall

Region 9 News

30 members and friends sat down to the 15th Region 9 Lunch at the Clubhouse, Stapleford Tawney Airfield, Essex. This was a scene of circuit racing way back in the 50s (blimey that's at least 65 years ago now). Numbers were down on previous years mainly due to anno domini, illness of members or members partners. However it was great to see Chas Wilde, Fred Jefcoate, Jeanette Degiorgio and Dave Whybrow in attendance. I think I am right in saying that these are the only remaining members of the original over 60s group formed by Terry Law that raced at North Weald and the long lamented Eastway. Many of that original group now officiate at the events with Fred Little, Trevor Madden, Knocker Shields and Mike Brushette leading the way. Apologies to those I've missed naming as still racing and helping but the happy old gang decreases yearly again mainly due to anno domini.

The assembly was again graced by King Alfred Engers, Emperor John Harvey and Count (I said Count) Norman Bright who all enjoyed or seem to enjoy the 4 fine courses offered up by Jan the club manager. For those that stayed on entertainment this year was provided by the excellent Essex Girls Pole Dancing Team hot from their national title win the previous week in Blackpool. Their services were provided and a cut rate simply on the grounds of one of the team (the tall blond one) being the daughter of a R9 member from Romford so that the Region’s funds were barely dented - if at all. In the absence of any poles the girls delighted those that had stayed by using the tall erect figure of 'Del Boy' Stacey whom I’m sure will never be the same again – which may not be such a bad thing. Other news concerns the end of the promotions from that West London stalwart Bill Butterworth.

The Hillingdon circuit will no longer sing to his Wednesday night events which he has organised for the last14 years albeit under various organisations. Others have stepped in to carry on the promotions so giving the 70-year-old Bill (is that true?)  a chance to ride himself. He will still help promote and ride the Dave Griffiths Memorial Road Race in honour of his old Twickenham mate. It’s a pity the other member of that very formidable Twickenham trio, Mick McManus, does not join Bill in the event but again like many others he has appears to have fallen by the wayside or is it the roadside although Bill tells me he always marshals. With the completion of The Lunch the season can now get underway in earnest and it kicked off with the San Fairy Ann’s two weekends series at the Gravesend Velo Park.

The first of which had some 50 riders signing on and stretching their legs - which all bodes well for the next event and for the Region's season as a whole. We are now yearly losing a road race but the circuit racing scene is more than holding up with the events at Hog Hill, Dunton, the Olympic Lea Valley Circuit, Gravesend Velo Park and Foulmead - check your handbook and the website for full details. That’s the news from Region 9 where all the women are beautiful all the men are strong and all the children want to be veterans.

20/04/2017 - ENTRIES FOR THE TOMMY GODWIN RR ON 4 JUNE

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.

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

06/04/2017 - Safety during Racing - reminder

Dear members,
 
A cycling member of the general public has reported an incident to us that happened during a race recently.
 
There were a few leisure riders riding in the opposite direction to the flow of the race, and as a car passed and the road became clear, the peloton expanded across the white line and entire width of the road.
 
This forced the leisure riders, riding in the opposite direction, to take evasive action and ride in the gutter, as they thought a head on collision was imminent.
 
No numbers, names, kits, clubs, people or races will be identified, as that is unnecessary.
 
We wish to reiterate the point about promoting safe riding and racing. We all would like to be able to go home in one piece after a race. Organisers do not need the additional paperwork that is required when an incident occurs.
 
We are a mature and experienced racing community. We rely on policing ourselves within races, and for those who spot poor practice or errors to point it out, have a quiet word and advise on what to do instead. We NEED this to promote safety and education, as very few people get it by osmosis.
 
We know organisers give comprehensive pre-race briefs, and there is always emphasis on safety, not crossing the centre line when it is not appropriate, not taking chances, and not endangering our fellow hobbyists.
 
This is a gentle call for all as a refresher and a reminder to be safe. Please take no chances. Please self police. Please have words if you see something that is wrong.
 
Thank you in advance.
 
Your Chairman - Gary Kristensen MBE

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.

Tom McCall - Series Co-ordinator at - tomcat9@blueyonder.co.uk

29/03/2017 - CHEAP first aid course at Darley Moor

Note - please respond direct to Eddie Nelson - eddie@darleymoor.co.uk

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.  eddie@darleymoor.co.uk

 

Thank you for reading this e-mail.

 

Kind regards

06/03/2017 - LVRC INSURANCE 2017 UPDATE

This important message has been sent direct to all Regional Event Coordinators and Organisers listed in the 2017 Handbook following various discussions at the NEC. 

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.
LVRC Motor Vehicle Cover
 
This is included in our policy and in exactly the same way as it operates for TLI Cycling,  in that it is a contingent cover for drivers of vehicles (not belonging to or operated by LVRC themselves as an organisation) being used on LVRC business. Contingent cover mean that the driver should have his or her own motor insurance in force and the use for the LVRC should fall within the definition of 'social, domestic and pleasure' in their policy. 

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.

To be certain the volunteers should speak to their own motor insurers stressing they do not receive a payment, that they are using their vehicle in the pursuit of a hobby, they are not participating in any vehicle racing event and that they are ONLY assisting in the running of a cycling event.

NEC members have sought clarification from their personal vehicle insurance companies.  Insurers were comfortable with the explanations given to them and said that they would be covered.  Confirmation was not put it in writing but notes were entered onto accounts.

02/01/2017 - LVRC - Chairman's Message 2017

Message from your Chairman - Gary Kristensen MBE
 
Happy New Year to you all and welcome into 2017. As racing cyclists, we should all have our eyes on a number of targets and aims through the months to come, and there is no doubt that this year is set to bring you more opportunity to race, help out and get involved with YOUR LVRC.
 
Firstly though, a BIG thank you to all who contributed to make 2016 a very successful year for the LVRC. Without you it wouldn't have happened. To all the members who pitched up and raced - safely and responsibly - let's do it again, faster and better!
 
The LVRC has the passion and know how to look after the 40+ racing community, and long may it continue!
 
2017
 
Overtly, not much will appear to have changed, so it will seem like business as usual, but behind the scenes, things (and people) have been changing. Planning has taken place, a lot of research and investigation is being done, and there has been plenty of development of ideas, concepts and infrastructure that will make the LVRC a better and more efficient organisation moving forwards. Whatever happens, and whatever we bring in, your help and feedback is appreciated, so please feel free to chirp up and chip in.
 
Membership
 
Membership renewal is due, so please follow the bouncing ball via the website to ensure you receive your handbook (currently going to print) and licence to race. It's still only £20, even though you are getting more for it this year! Great value, so please spread the word and ask your other 40+ year old racing and riding mates to join.
 
Ladies
 
We need more lady members, and we need a lady to become the champion to lead this initative. Please contact me individually if you are interested in coming onto the National Executive Committee to fill the role of the Ladies' Champion.
 
Racing 2017
 
The calendar has been finalised, and I thank all organisers and volunteers for their willingness and commitment to run the races that ensures we can all take part and have a crack for the podium. The list of National Champs and the final (provisional) calendar is currently on the website and Facebook for those who wish to start planning early!
 
Track Focus
 
There is even more track racing and training happening thanks principally to Rob Muzio. On top of the track league dates every fortnight from 12th January to 29th June (with each night's racing from 6.30 to 10pm). He is also training people to ride the Madison, for which there will be a race series (dates TBC), he has generated sponsorship to cover production of Madison jerseys, provided a provisional date for a National Madison Championships and set up the National track champs for the last weekend in October, this year at Derby.
 
So, if you wish to ride and race more track, please connect with Rob on Facebook and keep an eye on the online entry system for all of the future dates.
 
Technology
 
Region 7 will be using a timing chip system full time at their Milton Keynes Bowl race series, and this will inform and educate us on how we can best employ this technology in the years to come. We've initiated a number of other projects, including an updated website, more integration of the platforms we use to keep you informed and served, and our own race entry system that we estimate will save us the best part of a few thousand pounds per year over the current online entry system.
 
Website
 

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 colinsmith123@hotmail.com who is the NEC member responsible for the website nowadays.

 
Sponsors and Sponsorship Co-ord
 
The LVRC is extremely grateful for all sponsors who support what we do. I will not name them individually here, but rest assured that we do have ideas how to provide you with a better return on investment via our social media channels and web presence. If someone would like to become the sponsorship co-ordinator, then please contact me individually for the brief.
 
Veteran E-Leaguer
 
I'd like to resurrect this in 2017 but I need a leader and small team to make it happen. Please get in touch if you wish to head this up or be part of the team.
 
Volunteers
 
None of this has happened, or will happen, without volunteer help, so if you currently don't know how to get involved and lend a hand, then please ask your regional and national committee members. We need more volunteers to sustain and grow ourselves, from both an admin and race organisation perspective.
 
Remember folks, dream big in everything you do and all that you aspire to be, and look out for the changes and improvements that we aim to bring in for the good and benefit of the organisation in 2017.
 
Keep it rubber side down, your chain always tight, the wind on your back and the sun on your face. Be safe, but most importantly, have some fun doing it.
 
Yours in sport and all the very best
