Velo Atelier

The talk on 18th Jan was attended by 32 people. Useful details requested will appear here later.


If you train with power, accurate analysis is essential. We've managed to agree a 20% discount on the Training Peaks Athlete Premium Edition for club members. Training Peaks Premium allows you to train smarter, not harder. Log your workouts; plan your season; and analyse your heart rate, power, pacing and other data. Make analyse based decisions and measure your fitness over time using your Training Stress Score (TSS), the Performance Management Chart and a range of other tools. You can also access your Training Peaks account on Android, iPhones or on the web. To get the discount code contact Craig McKee on 07763860079 or craig.mckee@talk21.com

Important Apology!

New Membership Secretary Chris Parsons's address was incorrectly shown in the contacts section and on the new membership form on this website. His address should have been 59 Fleet Crescent. Apologies to all concerned for any confusion.

Renewing your Membership

Please note that Chris Parsons has taken over membership from Dave Aires (see contacts).

You can pay by PayPal, or by cash or cheque to the membership secretary. As before, you can pay for membership, the season's TTs and teas with a single payment (£58)

Please don't renew through the British Cycling on-line system as payment can take a few weeks to come through and we wrongly accuse our members of not renewing.

Our fees remain as last year, except the status of Juniors/Students has been clarified.

2017 AGM

The AGM is to be held on Wednesday 8th February at Dunchurch Village Hall at 8 pm. (Ample car parking available).

Come and have a say on how your club is run and contribute a few ideas of your own. Up for discussion is the committee's proposal for age-related categories in the vets' competition.

Rugby RCC Open 10 TT held Sat 30th July 2pm

Full results here - go to Open TT index

Interclub Results

A win for Rugby RCC making it 10-4 in the series. It was a record lowest aggregate for Rugby RCC and the fastest time was set by Craig McKee.

Go to Interclub 2016 for all the details, including times of guest riders, or go to Interclub History to see previous times.

Can you be seen?

Evenings can get very gloomy, especially under trees, and some riders have had narrow escapes because they lacked a front light. Modern lights don't add much weight and could save a big repair bill, (or even your life).

We have spare lights which riders can borrow if they forget.

PayPal & Membership

The club now has a PayPal account, enabling members to pay for membership, entry fees, etc. by this method - you don't need a PayPal account . The System of paying through BC's on-line facility will be phased out. Go to our PayPal page to find out more. Our fees remain as last year

Disc Wheel Stickers

Now available - disc wheel valve hole stickers with club logo at £1 per set of 4. - see Roman Matusiak.

Cash or cheques to Rugby RCC, or if you would prefer to pay by bank transfer ask Roman or Laurie Bird for the account details.

Leisure Clothing

We now have hooded tops, with club logo embroidered, available in S, M, L, XL & XXL at £16 each.

Here's our polo shirts, with club logo embroidered, available in S, M, L & XL at £10 each.

Riders' Numbers

Note comment in recent report: "Riders who only fasten their number at the top probably don't realise that it flaps around and makes it unreadable for the timekeepers. Definitely a case of mistaken identity waiting to happen." Apart from using all 4 pins you might consider this solution:

Contact Craig McKee who has obtained a 15% discount for club members.

Of Course, calling your number also helps!

Ever thought about a bike fitting? This is about making the bike fit the rider instead of the other way round! Go to All3Motion Bike Fitting for details.
