We are adding in a Time Trial event on Zwift that will be part of Club Championship. Point’s will be awarded in 2 categories – Men and Women. The course is 8km in length with 236m of climbing (last 2km) so hopefully it fair. You get no assistance from drafting so it is exactly like a Time Trial event…
You will just need to sign up to the race which zwift host at set times during the week and then provide your time to Ed Bucky. You can obviously repeat the event to try to improve your time.
We will announce more details on Monday. Please join in on the Zwift training/social rides to get a bit of practice in!

Phil Parnham has organised another print run of the popular Turbo Hoodies and Onesies, and also adding the option of a cotton T-Shirt with the Club logo. You will probably have seen the hoodies and onesies around the Club so know what they are like, and the T is the same colour and logo. As before the Onesies and Hoodies are personalisable with your name, but the T’s have the logo only to keep costs down. T’s are from £7.50, Hoodies from £20 and Onesies from £25. These will make excellent Christmas presents and be a great way to support our Club.
To purchase please go to the “Shop” on the main menu on the website. From there all is very straightforward – pay by credit/debit card and once the items are ready, they can be collected from Hampton Pool.
We only have a small window of time to get the order to the printers and get the garments back before Xmas, so please ensure you order before close of play on the 27th Nov.
