This is the place for discussion about the 2nd round of the 2018 BHPC races on the 1 mile cycle circuit at the UCLan Sports Arena, Preston

 

First and foremost we need volunteers to help organise, and pick race formats. So if any of you can help, please let me know.

I'm happy to take on Organisating duties for this one. Format to be announced closer the time but it may well include a time-trial as the circuit is unidirectional. If so then volunteers for timing duties, as well as the usual flag-waving and shouting, would be much appreciated

This will be my first foray on the track with you guys so will probably be trying to keep out of the way at the back of the field. Looking forward to it.

As recumbent-friendly trains to Preston are doable, I'm tempted to make this my second foray, after not actually dying at the Derby velodrome last summer. Still frustratingly unfit, so would also be keeping out of the way at the back.

Sounds good. Will welcome the company at the back. From the station you should be able to avoid most of the city centre madness to head out for the track on quieter roads and possibly cycle lanes. Won’t be the most direct route but would be nicer to ride. Let me know if you want any suggestions for routing.

Ask not what your organiser can do for you, ask what you can do for your organiser... Big smile

The current plan for Preston, providing we can find the staff for a TT, is:
1 lap time-trial, anticlockwise (25%)
50 mins + 1 lap, anticlockwise (75%)
The TT will start at 11.00am, promptish.
