Putting on a cycle race

I promoted my first ever cycle race on Sunday at the legendary Hillingdon cycle circuit where Bradley Wiggins grew up racing.  6 months of planning and hard work from both myself and some wonderful volunteers, spectators and of course riders made it an awesome day out in the sunshine.  My goal was to provide an accessible introduction to road racing for my club, Sydenham Wheelers and 2 other clubs, Avanti and 7Oaks Tri Club.  I even raced and came 4th myself – what a day!  The feedback was amazing, take a look below, I think they’re going to persuade me to put on another one and maybe invite a few more clubs too…….

Can’t believe the feedback:

“Well Done PB for yesterday. I know what hard work and the effort you put in and the risks you took and I hope that you feel what a great achievement it was.  It will be an annual event I’m sure. Who knows, it might compete for the social event of the year!  Even the result came out right, well, according to the form book anyway.  Congratulations again.”


“Paul,
Thank you for yesterday. I think the day will have encouraged more Sydenham Wheelers to try road racing, and I think it’s success will snow ball. I am looking forward to next year already.  I know such events take a lot of time and effort – we are very fortunate that you did all that you did. ”


“Hi everyone,Id just like to say a huge thank you for yesterday, it was thoroughly enjoyable and a great introduction for me into road racing in a friendly environment.  However it wouldn’t have been possible or such a success without your hard work.  Many thanks”


“Well done Paul and the Syd’s. A brilliant event.”


“Paul,
I think you can mark that one down as a huge success. As previously mentioned good racing, Good food and great way for a lot of people to either meet for the first time or catch up with old friends.   On behalf of the club I would like to thank you Paul for getting the idea off the ground and getting a great event together”


It feels good ;-) Watch this space!
