Help and ride system’ for club time trials 2016.

The club organises Time Trials on Wednesday evenings from April to September every year at Betteshanger Country Park (Q10/42) and Thanet Way (Q10/31).

This year we will again be implementing our ‘help and ride scheme’ – details are attached.

All riders will be expected to help by committing to help at least two club events through the season to gain eligibility to ride

We are expecting good support from club and non club members who want to ride.

You will be expected to marshal on the course on which you are planning to ride the most events –

If you can only help at other club events and would like to ride on Wednesday’s please contact the time trial secretary in the first instance.

It is the expectation that all riders including juveniles and juniors will help and ride. As we are not allowed to let juveniles and juniors marshal we are hoping their parents will be helping their children ride.

Non club members who ride but do not support the ‘help and ride system’ will have to pay an increased entry fee for events until they have helped

We are also hoping members will continue to help with club open event (2 up TTT, Fowlmead 10, Thanet way 25) and our commitment to KCA events – we have committed to provide 9 marshals on 11th Sept at the KCA event on Thanet Way

To make your commitment contact Michael Friend, Thanet Road Club Time Trial Secretary, michael.friend, Mob:07921 491 658

The day before a club time trial, if an event does not have enough helpers committed a message will be posted on the club website/Facebook and the event cancelled.

No messages and the event will run as planned

I am sure we all want to ride in 2016 so please commit your support to our club.
