Ilton training starts on 19th April and run for 20 weeks until 30th Aug at the
Merryfield Airfield
(main gate picture) at 19:00, signing on for 18:45.  Anyone who wishes to attend should complete the application form and return to Mike Smith or send direct to Rex Facey (address details on application form)

British Cycling membership and a racing
licence are not required for the Tuesday evening sessions.

These sessions are a great opportunity in
a friendly, supportive and traffic-free environment, to acquire the skills
and confidence required for participating in road races .  Although the
airfield perimeter track is relatively flat it is also lacking in shelter
from the wind and weather and the sessions are a tough workout.  As the
main intention is to give everyone the opportunity of practicing their bunch
riding skills, it is quite permissible to take a short-cut down the runways to
regain the bunch if you get dropped.  There are normally two groups – one
more eyeballs-out than the other – so you can choose how hard a kicking you
want!  There is a programme of open races on the airfield throughout the
season in addition to the training sessions and an ever popular 4-up team time
trial evening which is usually followed up with a curry at the local
hostelry.  The 4-up is on June 14th this year.
