Bury Clarion ‘Strava Gran Fondo 5′ club run 18th May.

complete the May Gran Fondo challenge on a scenic club run and take in the Tour De France climbs of Oxenhope Moor and Cragg Vale. Everyone who has completed a club ride on Saturday or Sunday is welcome to join with the pace being adapted on the day to suit (slightly slower than the Saturday pace to account for the distance).

Coaching/Training Seminar

Fellow Members
You will recall we cancelled a coaching seminar/talk because of a clash with Football.
Hopefully Thursday 3 April will not clash with anything.
I note this is one week before the start of the Southport CC tens.
Peter Graham will be the principal speaker. You may recall my mentioning Peter was 5 times hill climb champion in a previous email.
I recall Peter emerging as a very fast 15 year old in 1951 on the 10 mile course run by CTC on Friday Evenings – it went from the top of Walmersley Road to just short of Rawtenstall and back. I do not think he rode the Bury Clarion Tens that year. He did ride our Tens in 1952 on the Pilsworth course. By that time we had revised the course and cut out Langley Lane but we included Hareshill Road which at that time was full of potholes so instead of a hill we had  ‘The Hell’ of this obstacle. Peter though knocked out 23 minute 10s every week.
I know that Peter is not one who lives in the past but he will be up-to-date with current training techniques.
So Thursday 3rd of April in the Sinatra Room at Elton Liberal Club, New George Street off Walshaw Road, Bury.
It would be good to know if you intend to come along. It gives us a chance to get to know each other better. At the moment we have 79 members if all those who have not yet paid their subs rejoin we will have 90 members. The last time we had more members than this was in 1954 when we had 100 members.
Cheers Peter Roscoe

Presentation Evening February 28th 2014

Guest of Honour 2013 Peter Boyd

Guest of Honour 2013 Peter Boyd

This year’s annual awards evening and social at Elton Liberal Club was the most successful since the heady days of cycling in the 1960’s. It was boosted by it being a joint evening with Bolton Clarion. Club Chair Nick Hall opened proceedings and talked about the good things that have happened amongst club members during the past year such as Simon Yates winning the World’s Points Championship and performing so well in the Tour of Britain whilst brother Adam also had a successful season noting in particular his second place in the Tour L’Avinir. They are now with the professional Orica Greenedge team and we expect them to progress to ever-greater heights.

On then to a most splendid buffet prepared by Lindsey Williams – I know that neither Sylvia nor myself have never seen or enjoyed such appetizing buffet fare. On then to Nick welcoming our guest of honour Peter Boyd, former national tandem sprint champion and Commonwealth Games participant. Peter flattered us with his having done some research into our histories noting that Bolton Clarion (1896) was slightly older than Bury (1901) remarking it was good to see that ‘some of the founders were with us for the evening’s celebration’.

Bolton’s awards winners introduced by Tony Bowles for presentation by our guest of honour followed and then Bob Duckworth introduced Bury’s winners. Nick Hall won the 25, 50, Tens and Best All Rounder Championships. Other championship winners were Chris Taylor, Hill Climb and Nigel Hood, Handicap. Ryan Harrison was presented with a citation relating to his contribution to the development of our club, Liam Shaw a certificate for his setting up a new juvenile record for the ascent of the Rake in the Lancashire Road Club Hill Climb and Nick Hall a certificate for his beating of the club 50-mile record.

An important aspect of our awards evening is the presentation of personal best certificates as not all can aspire to winning club championship. Jon Longworth was the only one to receive this kind of certificate for a personal best at 25 miles. A nice touch was that I was presented with a certificate relating to my 1963 time on the Rake, which must be beaten by any contender before they can claim the record for a senior rider.
Club stalwart Andy Horner missed out on any club championship but it was pleasing that he won our recent club short distance time trial and was presented with a bottle of ‘Fairtrade’ wine. It would be pleasing for Andy to have got the better of Nick Hall who took second place for another bottle of Fairtrade wine. There was a great deal of camaraderie on the evening and Bob Duckworth had gone to great trouble in preparing an amusing ‘cycle’ racing game.
