Anthony Maynard Reliability Trial - 25th February 2018


By sauliusv - Posted on 13 February 2018

The last Sunday in February, 25th, is this year's annual Anthony Maynard Spring Reliability Trial. It’s the usual two routes with target times for the different ‘speed’ groups. Please note this event is not a race, you should ride with normal consideration for your fellow riders and other road users, adhering to the rules of the road. It's also wise to come equipped to repair your own mechanical problems, as it's less likely that others might wait for you, compared with a normal club run! All the fun of a sportive for a fraction of the outlay - we’d just like £3, or £2 under 18s to support our charities and you will also get a free coffee at the finish. Departures are near the first roundabout in Thames Valley Park, sign on from 08:30, first group away at 09:00. President Rides from 093

There are two routes; The increasingly popular President’s ride 55km (560m) and more challenging 88km (860m).

Depending on numbers there will be four or more groups, each with their average speed target. The aim of our Reliability Trial is to finish within (and as close to) your target time (Arrival ETA) for the fixed route. And on this basis the winner is chosen, i.e. a '0' Reliability ride - so it is not a race! Times will be recorded to the next complete minute.  As a guide, most riders finish within +/- 30 minutes of  their target. I have seen ‘track stands’ attempted at the ned!

The start is on Thames Valley Park Drive, RG6 1PQ, with sign-on in the car park to the Water Sports Centre. Please be at the Thames Valley Park start well in advance of your chosen start time to sign on.

The finish is somewhere warm and comfortable - 'The Club' at Mapledurham Golf course (RG4 7UD).  Please take care on the narrow entrance road. There will be a place to put your bike, coffee, snacks and you can order a cooked breakfast if you wish!

Any riders under 16 must be accompanied by an adult on the ride, and 18 year olds need a completed parents’ consent form. Both need to provide a signed consent form as attached.

The ride is named after Anthony Maynard, a young man who'd grown up in the RCC family, and who was tragically killed in 2008. You can find out more about Anthony here: http://www.readingcyclingclub.com/taxonomy/term/18

We are supporting Anthony's favourite charity; World Society for the Protection of Animals (www.wspa.org.uk) and the local Air Ambulance service, (www.tvacaa.org) so please be prepared to make a £3 or £2 donation at sign on.

See you at the start !
