As the members who live local to Yeovilton will know, there are roadworks outside the Naval Airbase. We have now been informed by the main contractor that these could go on until December. As a result, we have no option but to cancel the scheduled 5 and 9 mile events for this season.
Instead, we have applied for a change of course for three evenings - the 11th June; 16th July; and 13th August. These will now be run as 10 mile events, meaning that all club events this year will be run on the 10 mile course run on the A303.
The police have asked that riders are made aware of the dangers associated with time trialling on dual carriageways; to this end we have decided that all riders must use rear lights on this course.
No lights = no race.
