Louisa and Andy Cooper’s record breaking season continued on Saturday (2nd Sept) when they smashed the BJW Mixed Tandem Club 10 record, recording 18:28 on the fast V718 in Yorkshire.
The previous record, 20:21 has stood since 2003. In addition this time is the 3rd fastest mixed tandem ever recorded.
After the event Louisa said, “Our goal was to do a 19 but we completely surpassed that! If felt very fast and our speed did not drop much below 30mph on the way out which was a headwind so we knew we were onto a good one. Only 2 years ago this would have been good enough to match the competition record, it’s been pushed out to 17.51 since but I think we could go quicker…”
The BJW club Time Trial Season ended last Tuesday with the traditional ‘Road Bike Only’ trial on the 8.5M P429 at Pamphill.
John Samways retained the ‘Peter Boston Vine Tankard’ awarded at this event for the fastest time. John also retained the Club League competition.
All club members then retired to The Vine pub to discuss this season’s successes and this winter’s training plan.
It’s been a busy year for the Jubilee. As well as the club Time Trials we organised and held two Open Time Trials, an Open Road Race and a 6 week Track League.
Club Runs on a Sunday Morning and Thursday evening continue now through the Autumn and Winter.
The Interclub Hill Climb competition takes place in September/October. Please ride and support the BJW event at Bulbarrow on 15th October.
The ever popular Reliability Rides are in the Clockwise direction this year!

Andy Cooper took the BJW Men’s 25M TT record last weekend on the R25/3H course in the Welsh Valleys. Andy bettered Matt Bottrill’s long standing record (set in 2001) by 6 seconds recording 49 mins 49 seconds. Therefore maintaining a blistering 30 mph+ average for the course and beating a record many never thought would be bettered.
It’s been a great season for husband and wife team Andy and Louisa Cooper. A meticulously planned campaign taking in some of the country’s fastest courses has resulted in:
-Winning the B&DWCA two-up in earlier this month
-Multiple lifetime PBs for Louisa – most recently 22 min 23 secs at Hull yesterday (27th Aug) – 3 seconds off the BJW Womens 10M record!
Congratulations to both for a great season… Keep the momentum through the winter and maybe another record breaking season in 2018?

John Samways set a new 100M TT club record at the Eastern Counties CA competition in Cambridgeshire on Sunday 18th June 2017.
Crossing the line at 3:33:14 John knocked over 8.5 minutes off the previous record – held by Eamonn Deane since 1996.
In a class field John came ‘only’ 14th. The winner – Andrew Duggleby set a National 100M record with 3:16:51 knocking 4mins 40s off the two year old record. Andrew Duggleby is a former British Cycling scratch racer and Gold medal winning paralympian pilot for Steve Bate.
A splendid turn out of members, testament to Bobs popularity, escorted the funeral cortege on it’s approach to the Bournemouth Crematorium. The Jubilee then formed a guard of honour as Bob’s coffin was borne into the chapel.
Club President, Peter Warhurst read the eulogy, speaking of Bob’s early life in Liverpool. Both Bob and Peter were outsiders, Peter moving to Bournemouth from North London, and Bob, a Scouser, arriving via Nottingham and Somerset.
Bob took up cycling in 1951, riding for the Melling Wheelers before his work with textile giant Courtaulds took him to Nottingham. Bob met his wife to be Barbara and bike racing took a back seat as family and career took over. Bob, now father to Alex (1974) and Katrina (1975) joined Derby Mercury CC and returned to racing in 1977 before work took him to Wellington in Somerset.
Despite a busy life Bob found time to study for an Open University maths degree, while still racing with Exeter Wheelers. Local cycling archives show “Bob Wareing, Exeter Wheelers, 230.460 miles” in the Poole Wheelers 12 of 1980.
Aided by his degree Bob landed a job with a major insurance firm in Bournemouth and moved to Christchurch in 1982. Joining Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers, Bob rode a 12 hour event virtually every year from 1982 until his retirement from racing in 1996. His greatest distance was 238.743 miles in 1989 aged 54. Records show Bob rode his final race in 2003 aged 68.
Bob is revered and remembered with enduring affection by all Jubilee members for the many years of work which he put into running the club’s Tuesday evening time trial programme. “All accompanied by a smile and a helpful manner, every rider liked and respected him”. Peter went on to say “Bob also earned a reputation for his mastery of the laptop computer and the production of all sorts of charts, statistics and obscure competitions. Looking back it would perhaps not have surprised us if he had set up a race limited to only those whose mother-law had been born on a Friday”
In recent years Bob underwent heart valve surgery also suffering (in silence) with irregular heart beats but did not let this stop him having a gentle ride on his bike most days. Incredibly Bob’s meticulous records show, that despite his age and health he covered 923.3 miles in 2016 bringing his life’s recorded mileage to 316,196 miles, awesome. As Peter says, “We are all fortunate to have had Bob in our lives and hope that he is now somewhere where he can ride his bike always gently downhill and with the breeze behind.”
Robert “Bob” George Wareing
7th September 1934 – 25th May 2017
Bob Wareing’s funeral service will take place at Bournemouth Crematorium at 11am on Tuesday 20th June.
We do hope that a goodly number of the Jubilee members, whom Bob served for so many years in running our club time trials, will attend in his honour. Members in Jubilee kit are particularly welcome, especially if coming by bike to join the cortege as it approaches the crematorium from the west in Strouden Avenue. Arrangements will be made for supervision of the cycles while the ceremony is in progress.
Bob’s widow Barbara, son Alex and daughter Katrina invite all those attending (and those Jubilee members who can’t make it to the service) to the following wake at the Cliff House Hotel, Belle Vue Road, Southbourne BH6 3DA from 12.30.
Please advise Peter Warhurst, firstname.lastname@example.org if you propose joining the cycling tribute.

It is with the deepest of regret that we to have to record that Bob Wareing passed away in Christchurch McMillan Unit during the night, aged 82. Sadly Bob had been on a downward health spiral since developing liver problems around the turn of the year and since was mostly hospitalised in Royal Bournemouth.
There despite endless examination by a team of top consultants it seems that none could positively diagnose the cause of his weakening and he was recently transferred to the Christchurch McMillan unit.
Our deepest sympathy and condolences go to Bob’s wife Barbara, daughter Katrina, and son Alex.
Arrangements for the funeral will published later.
Sad news is that our oldest member, Dennis Trevisone (born 9th Oct 1923) passed away peacefully from natural causes on Saturday 19th May.
Dennis was a life long cyclist who spent his younger cycling years with the Bournemouth Arrow where he made his mark as their hill climb champion in the late 1930s/ early 1940s. After a long lay-off from club cycling he joined the Jubilee.
At an age and circumstances which precluded club riding but he became a regular at the Scrumpy Wheelers’ weekly Wednesday meetings, where he will be much missed.
Dennis’s wife and son both long pre-deceased him.
