Join us for a quick day trip to France Really we live so close we should do it more often.
Using the local Newhaven ferry we go overnight to Dieppe ready for an early start – plenty of time for ride round northern France, enjoy breakfast, coffee stops and maybe a cheeky beer and back to Brighton before anyone notices you’ve gone
Full Details of Dieppe 24
Alex McLaren will be leading midweek social rides (27 km/h or pace of the slowest rider)

These rides will be approx 50km/2hrs, ending in a pub, bring money and lights for the wobble home
No routes will be published in advance but will likely return via Shoreham or over the Beacon.
There was a low turnout for the first club time trial of the year – the 22.34-mile Hardriders (course GS/981) on 12 March. Perhaps riders were put off by the poor weather forecast. But some good times were recorded nevertheless.

- Jack Smith – 1:03:16
- Morgan Lewis – 1:03:19
- Juha Aaltonen – 1:08:09
- Jamie Smith – 1:09:38

So congratulations to those lucky enough to be picked out of the helmet – and commiserations to those unlucky – if they had given us one more team nearly everyone would have been in so it was a close run thing
We were allocated just two teams
British Cycling has allocated a limited number of places to affiliated clubs in the club challenge. Clubs with more BC members get priority – so sign up 🙂
It is likely to be oversubscribed and this time the club will in a ballot to win places for teams.
If we are lucky enough to win places then the club will in turn have a ballot of interested members for places.
Members who have supported the club / of have committed to supporting the club through marshalling etc. will have priority.
Each rider within the team must pay their own entry fee (£69) and complete their own online entry form.
A team comprises four riders
Every rider in a team must be a current British Cycling member
Teams can comprise four men or four women or a mixed team of two men and two women
Riders who hold an Elite or Category 1 British Cycling Race Licence are not eligible to enter the Club Challenge
Riders who have already secured an individual place through the original entry ballot or a charity place are not eligible to enter the Club Challenge
A significant numbers of Mitre riders are helping and or riding the event.
There will be a steady social paced group leaving the Ditchling HQ at 8-8.15am.
Some are talking of sub 4 hours gold standard ( tough in wind, rain and 1700m of climbing) and some are talking about the infinity foods brownies. This may lead to two groups 🙂
See you there
