BJW Club Time Trial – Tuesday 6th July – P311

Enter by posting a comment below or emailing ttsec@bjw.org.uk. Entry deadline is Midday on day of the event, start list posted soon after.

We need someone to put the signs out this week. Please state if you are available to do this.

Booking in open from 6.30 to 7.00 at the Main carpark in Ringwood.

Everyone entering must have very carefully read and understand the rider information document. Failure to comply with this document may result in disqualification and banning from the rest of the season.

Couple of points to remind people
•No Riding on the course when the event is live
•No changing at HQ, you must arrive ‘Dressed to ride’
•We cannot give change if you pay cash. Please bring correct money in an envelope.
•If you arrive after sign-on has closed, you will not be allowed to enter.
•Make sure your rear lights are clearly visible (and working obviously).

From this season we are looking for people to help with putting out and bringing in the course signage. Remember without this we can’t race. Signs need to be placed at Avon Causeway and Sopley (as well as Ringwood, but this can be done by timekeepers if required). Anyone doing this will be entitled to a free ride (either on the night or as credit). More details will be available at the events. Bob Richardson is going them this week, but we still welcome volunteers.

Everyone seems to be getting the hang on the number system which is great. Please be careful about the size of group gathering at the finish. You should make sure that you are able to pin your own number on yourself as there will be no one available to assist with pinning numbers

In addition to the COVID19 rules, we would like to remind everyone of a few other important regular rules. Probably most importantly is the new CTT rule, which makes a visible rear light compulsory for all riders. NO LIGHT = NO RIDE, no exceptions! Also with warm ups now having to be done on the road, please remember no warming up on the course, and no U turns in sight of the start timekeeper.

The road bike class will continue for 2021. Again this is an opt-in category and you are then ‘Locked in’ for the season as far as points are concerned. That is not to say you can’t switch to a TT bike mid-season, but you will not be eligible for points if you do.

Entry fee for 2020 remains at £5, contactless card and device payments is the preferred method of payment especially with regards to the COVID19 regulations. Just use your contactless card, phone, watch etc for fast easy payment. Your race number will be issued in exchange for payment. Correct change only for cash in an envelope please

Meeting point will be the Furlong Carpark in Ringwood, NOT Expro carpark. Please do not park at Expro, as it is a private carpark and we have not asked for permission to use it this year.

First rider will be off at 19.16

Priority will be given to BJW members, followed by BJW 2nd Claim members, before others and will be on a first come, first served basis. Unfortunately we cannot offer a reserve system after the entry deadline, but if you know you are unable to attend before the deadline, please let us know as we may have others waiting. Final start list will be posted below and on facebook after the deadline.

You book a ride by stating in the comments section below your, Name (Including Surname) and Club. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU STATE YOUR CLUB!!  (or unattached). After

If you are not having any luck with the comments, then the other option is to email ttsec@bjw.org.uk. No other platforms will be checked for entries, so if you post elsewhere your entry won’t get seen! 

Any weather and traffic/roadworks related updates will be posted below as well, so keep an eye on this page on Tuesday afternoon/evening if the weather is looking bad.

If you have not posted a comment before then your post will need to be manually approved, so don’t worry that your post is either not showing or showing for approval. If you have previously used this system your posts should be approved automatically. Don’t worry any delay in approval won’t put your entry at risk.

PLEASE STATE FULL NAME AND CLUB WHEN YOU POST!!

Riders Under 18 years old require a signed consent form to be able to compete. If you are under 18 please include that as a note in your entry.

    I’ll ride it on my road bike if you need some numbers. Afraid I can’t help with signs today due to work.

  10. Lyndon says:

    Like Tom, I can make up the numbers if you run but I’ll be pushed for time to do the signs this week.

  12. Time Trial Secretary says:

    So I have an offer of help for the signs now. However with only 8 riders (some of which are only coming to make numbers up) how keen is everyone to race tonight?

    Next week is NFCC hosted on P304E (25 Mile)
