RideLondon 100 Charity Places (again!)

The club has received several approaches inviting WSCTC members to apply for charity places on the Prudential Ride 100 ride on Sunday 4 August 2019 (and we already have 2 blog posts on this topic from other charities).  Rather than bombard the web site with multiple blogs, here’s a quick summary of the approaches we have had (this will be updated if we have more requests):

Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB) – details at www.rnib.org.uk/ridelondon

UNICEF – details at unicef.uk/ridelondon

Genetic Disorders UK – details at http://www.geneticdisordersuk.org/getinvolved/cycle#prudentialridelondon

Oakleaf Enterprises – details at https://www.oakleaf-enterprise.org/ridelondon1002019/

Action for Children – details at  https://www.actionforchildren.org.uk/how-to-help/fundraising-events/prudential-ridelondon-surrey-100/ only £50 registration and £50 minimum sponsorship. Email Megan

So, that’s plenty of options to choose from if you would like to participate in this impressive closed road event whilst helping to support these very worthy charities.


Annual Dinner 2 March

Just a quick reminder that if you wish to attend the annual dinner and awards presentation on Saturday 2nd March, you should contact me in the next couple of days. We have plenty of bookings, but there is plenty of space for more. John

Cyclists needed

We have received this request from 2 students at the University of Surrey. ( I think Level 3 cyclists are those who occasionally do Sportives and time trials)

We are looking for level 3+ cyclists to be involved in a study on ‘The effects of carbohydrate mouth rinsing on time trial performance’

We are 3rd year students at the University of Surrey and completing this study as part of our dissertation. 
Details on the study can be found on the attached poster. We would be very grateful if you could share this to any level 3+ cyclists who may be interested in taking part.

 Thank you in advance, we appreciate any help you can provide.

Kind regards,

Georgina Grimble and Sadie Lock
