Here are the club trophy and award winners for 2013. http://kingstonwheelers.co.uk/awards2013.shtml The club is always reviewing the silverware and competitions so if you have any suggestions please get in touch.
The club bike box is available for club members to use when travelling, it’s especially helpful if you fly with the bike. Dave Nash has now kindly taken over the running of this from Gareth. The box is available to members only and on a first-come, first-served basis where you can reserve it. To do this contact Dave N via the forum and the Private Message (PM) system. In the meantime you can check if the box is booked or not for the period by looking at the Google Calendar set up by Dave.

The story is on the forum but here’s a preview video of Rob Holden’s 24 dash to rent a Boris Bike, drive to the South of France, ride up Mont Ventoux and then make it back in time to return the bike in less than 24 hours.
Sunday 8 December 4.00 pm – 10.00pm The club’s annual dinner and awards ceremony will take place at the Surbiton Racket and Fitness Club in Berrylands, KT5 8JT.

Tickets are £5 per member which includes food and £7.95 for guests, friends and family are welcome. It’s free for Under-12s. Places are limited so get your tickets before they sell out via the links below. SOLD OUT
The club’s annual Christmas dinner and awards ceremony is taking place on Sunday 8 December. More details on this year and how to get tickets will be on the website soon but put the date in your diary now. In the meantime he club’s committee is deciding on the award winners for 2013. Some are obvious given Steve Irwin’s sweep of the time trial records but others are not and there are runner-up prizes too. The full list of awards from last year is here. The committee will try to pick the best winners but can’t check every result from the year so if you feel you have a chance of winning, please get in touch. The same if you think someone else deserves a prize. Anyone thinking they have a chance at a trophy or award should get in touch. For time trialling, please contact Cathy Clifford and road racing contact Maryka Sennema or just email the club’s info@ address. We also welcome nominations. The road race trophies are more subjective with prizes for the best road racer, a runner-up, the most improved and the best veteran rider. Similarly anyone wanting to nominate or suggest someone for the “contribution to the club” or “achievement on a bike” awards should get in touch with ideas. All suggestions and results should be sent in by the end of the month so they can be reviewed in November and the trophies engraved.
Well done to Gareth Thomas, the new club road race champion and also to Rupert Gordon-Watkins for winning the accompanying race. Full results are below.

Sunday 8 September The annual “President’s Club Run” takes place soon. It’s a club run with two differences, the aim being to get as many of the club’s management committee out on the bike so members can meet them and even better, the club will meet the bill for refreshments at Tanhurst Farm. Yes, you read that right: free cake for all. This is for members only and if you want free food you’ll need to be in club kit on the day. Several rides will start from the usual meeting point and aim to converge at the Tanhouse Farm Shop near Newdigate.
Saturday 28 September 2013 The annual John Bornhoft Memorial Hill Climb takes place on the slopes of Leith Hill in under two months’ time. Already entries are coming in and you can enter too but remember you need to be a member of a CTT-affiliated club, like the Kingston Wheelers so if you’re reading this and fancy a go but you’re not a member of a club, there’s time to find a good club. For those new to cycling, the UK road and TT racing side is a collaborative effort in that all the races are staged by clubs volunteering – there are no events put on by federations or companies such as in triathlons or sportives, so without clubs such as us staging the events there will be no races. Soon race organiser Danny Clifford will be badgering and pleading with people for marshals, cakes, racers and spectators, in the meantime make a note in your diary and get practising either your cake-baking and or your bike-climbing. The club encourages everyone to take part in this. By all means race and enjoy the effort and the cheers on Cowbell Corner but if not, please join the club to make the event happen, either with help or the day or to roar at the riders.
