Mark Barton has been busy beavering away organising some dates to set aside for social events. Currently as follows:
Sunday 26th July – 3pm until late – Club BBQ at 442 club. This is the last stage of Le Tour so we have a BBQ outside with roller racing available. We also have use of Hess’s Bar with the stage being shown on the TV.
Saturday 14th November – 1900 until late – Annual Dinner and prize giving at 442 club. 80 spaces available for seated dinner with Andy Hawes spinning the decks afterwards. Is there an end to this mans talents!
Any questions then please speak to Mark.
This Saturday Rodney is leading a club ride from Chilham. Meet 0930 at Chilham public car park (free parking).
A steady ride with two good climbs and two long sections where people can ride hard and stretch their legs!
Rodney will be giving a prize for his ‘performer of the day’.
Hopefully we can get a good turn out to enjoy some different roads in East Kent.

The second Crits@thepark races took place today at Cyclopark Gravesend. We had Lou Mason racing in the women’s 3/4 race, finishing in 6th (meaning her points now make her leader of the club champoinship). Next up came the 3rd’s with Tom and Rob Kennison taking part. In the 4ths Lee Pilcher came 13th from 100, Alex Woolley fought his way back to 25th after being behind a start line crash and Lee Kingston dug in to finish the race.
2nd Claim members Jacob Kennison and Vicki Strila also had good rides.
Well done everyone. If anything on this post needs correcting give me a shout.

Last Saturday the club hosted the first of the Crits@thepark races at the Cyclopark, Gravesend.
Firstly we must say thank you to Tom Knight for organising and everybody that helped throughout the day, it wouldn’t have worked without you all standing in the cold or sitting behind a table!
- First up was the womens race with 22 riders.
- Next came the 3rd Cat men. Steve Smith flew the colours in this race coming 35th.
- In the 4th Cat race we had Matt Nunn in 47th, Robb Sapp in 37th, Lee Pilcher in 26th, Alex Woolley in 23rd and Shaun Robinson coming 6th in his first race to bag some points.
Well done to all the riders on a tough day for racing. Hopefully you all got the racing bug!
If I missed anyone give me a shout and I will edit the post
