Membership & TT Entry Fees

We've kept our fees frozen for 2020, possibly the lowest membership fees for a cycling club we know of. Full membership is £10, or £5 for retirees, even less for some students. You can pay anyway you like, with PayPal being the most popular. You don't need a PayPal account, just click on PayPal at the top of this page.

Entry fees for our club TTs are £3.50 per ride, with £4 for private trials. We subsidise U-18s still in education by charging £2 per ride. From these entry fees we pay a levy of £3 per ride to the CTT. See Fees for more information. Full membership is £10 or £5 for retirees, so you can pay any combination of these with a single payment up front to cover membership, a season's TTs (£59) and refreshments (£4).

Club Clothing

As announced at our Awards Evening we have transferred to NoPinz as our clothing supplier. This will allow members to order clothing direct, thus eliminating the need for the club to carry expensive stock. Just go to the NoPinz website to view our kit. To order you will need a password, contact Ollie BIlling on ollie.billing@gmail.com

As we move from Endura to Nopinz we are selling off our stock of Endura kit at a 30% discount. Go to Discounted Clothing to see what's available. To purchase any of these items contact Ollie BIlling on ollie.billing@gmail.com

Club Emails

The new booking system has a facility to send out an email message to all our members. This is a useful feature, but unfortunately email hosts have tightened up their systems to block 'phishing' emails. Sometimes these will be identified as spam or blocked altogether. Thus our messages which contain 'bookings.rugbyrcc' incur this treatment. The lesson is to check your Junk folder regularly.

Road Bike definition

With TT bikes getting quite expensive many people are looking at road bikes as a separate category in open events, and it's a less expensive way to get into the sport. Rugby RCC include a road bike category in our open TT on 25th July. We have agreed on the following definition which coincides with the CTT's definition & is based on Aerocoach's suggestions:

1. No aerobars, clip on aerobars or aero extensions to be used
2. Hands must be holding the handlebars at all times whilst racing (ie. not with forearms resting on the handlebar)
3. Wheels must have a minimum of 12 spokes each, and have a maximum rim depth of 65 mm
4. Helmets to have no visor
5. Ears must not be covered by the helmet (Giro Aerohead helmets are not permitted)

Safety

All riders in Rugby RCC Club events should wear a helmet and have a working rear light. The rear light is now compulsary in ALL CTT events. Also we strongly advise the use of a front light, though not compulsary, The club will have a couple of spare lights available to anyone who forgets. Anyone not conforming will not be able to ride.

Results of Rugby RCC Open 10 - Saturday 27th July 2019

Our open 10 resulted in a win for James Garrett of Rugby Velo and Linda Hubbard in the womens category. There was rain throughout the morning which eased just before the start, but by then many competitors had decided not to ride. There were 45 starters, with 62 opting out, but the event went ahead and everyone finished safely. Go to results for all the information, including pictures of the winners of the mens and womens events.

Club Committee & Volunteers

We aim to raise its profile of the club and the committee should be more identifiable. We've started this process and hope to expand it to include volunteers and helpers who are so essential to the running of the club. Go to committee to see how this page is progressing.

Can you be seen?

No apologies for repeating this message from last year. Gloomy evenings show many riders would benefit from a front light. Timekeeping at the finish reinforces this message and it's easy to see how an oncoming motorist could miss a cyclist travelling in the opposite direction. 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.

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.
