TTR: There will be 3 groups this week 31/03/16.
Belfairs: 19:20 The Fast Group, no stopping will leave at 19:20
19:10 The slower fast group, also no stopping or regrouping will leave at the same time as the Newbie group at 19:10
Rayleigh: Fast group 19:30
Slower Fast group and Newbie group about 19:20-5
If we get enough riders out we can split the 2 slower groups at Rayleigh if not then we do the same as the first week we ran the Newbie group.
There is a new route for the Newbie group, slightly shorter than the full TTR. The fast group will now do the "Full TTR route"
Everyone is welcome and there will be a group that will match most peoples speed. The weather is dry so should be a good turn out. I hope all that make sense! see you tomorrow.

TTR: Last week before the clocks change and we split the groups. The Newbie group will continue this week with a slightly altered route (basically its the normal TTR route shortened).
There was a great turn out last week, it took a while for everyone to get the hang of it but by Wakering we were doing though and off like pro's! Everyone is welcome and nobody gets dropped from this group.
We leave at 19:15 from Belfairs (the corner by the kids playground and flags) this week we will go through Rayleigh, if anyone wants to hop on then we will leave at there at 19:30.
The 2 groups will go the same route up until this point, I suggest we let the fast group leave first from Rayleigh, then follow on after.
New Strava route (Just for the newbie group) below, Normal TTR route for the fast boys. It looks like it will be wet tonight but warm (ish).

Thanks to Matthew Page for running another great Battle on the Beach. It was a cracking weekend. The Saturday night race worked great and created a great atmosphere to kick the weekend off. Like big kids myself, Graham Heath Heathy and Iain Webb headed out onto the beach before the race started to enjoy the sun set and some guilt free skids on the sand!
Race day arrived after a chilly nights sleep in the tent, the plan to do a proper warm up then turn up to the line with 20 mins to go was a bit silly as we were literally at the back of the field and by the time the race started my legs were cold again anyway!
The course flowed better this year with less of a bottle neck at the first singletrack, saying that there literally was no point on the track you could recover as the downhills were very short and sand which needed your full concentration making a tough race even harder.
I dragged myself round on the TraversBikes.com Fat Race to 12 place (out of 96) in the Fat Bike category and top third overall.
Thanks to everyone who came over for a chat at our gazebo, it was nice to put some names to faces. Lots of test rides were had. The new Lauf Forks TR Boost forks stirred up lots of interest.
Roll on next year!
TTR: The usual group will leave at the normal time 19:15 and follow the normal route.
Starting this week (Thursday) 17/03/16 I will be leading a new group, the idea is to offer people a chance to ride in a group on the road, doing "through and off". We will go at the pace of the slowest rider, so there will be no stopping or regrouping.
If we can get the numbers it will hopefully create a 3rd TTR group (with the main group splitting when the clocks change) and offer a stepping stone for anyone wanting join the other group but feel they are too fast at the moment or continue in this group.
The route is below (its a shortened TTR route)
