  1. Thanks for the responses, still looking for a first aider, but hopefully will get one confirmed soon
  2. Hello, So I'm organising a crit race at Bellahouston Park on the 1/10/16 with Glasgow University Cycling. BC link: https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/events/details/147980/Glasgow-University-Student-Crits I'm currently really struggling to get a first aider within the university club, so I'd be really grateful if anyone here is a qualified first aider and free on Saturday 1/10? Also the women's race is open to all women, not just students, and could really do with some more entries. So it would be really great if the women in the club could enter - there's loads of prizes available and it's not a difficult course to race on if you've never raced before, and it should be a really fun race. Thanks!
  3. So the BUCS track champs were in Manchester at the weekend. I'm pretty happy with how all my races went. Saturday the only event I was doing was individual pursuit, which due to a lack of time, they cut down form 3 to 2.5k. I was hoping to get a 4.10 for 3k, and ended up getting 3.31 for 2.5k which placed me 8th, so I think if I had held my pace for another two laps I should have got 4.11-12. Only first and second managed to go below 4 minutes this year with 3.57 and 3.58, and third and fourth got 4.05 and 4.10 in their medal rides over 3k. Sunday was team sprint and points. I hadn't practised team sprint in a few months so didn't know what to expect, but we rode a pb with 39.6 and qualified fourth which put us into the minor final. Sarah my team mate was then given some race wheels for the bronze ride off, however she pulled the rear, and we weren't given a restart so had to settle for fourth overall. Then onto the points race, only 40 laps, but the bunch seemed a bit nervous, and i think there was a few inexperienced riders. There was quickly a big crash taking out 5-7 girls, I think they were all fine after a while, and some rejoined the bunch. Then with 13 laps to go another two went down right in front of me on the banking. Once the race restarted I managed to get on a wheel and cross the line third, picking up 2 points and finishing 7th overall. So overall I thought it was a good weekend of racing with a good number of Scottish riders picking up medals, and a particularly well contested women's sprint event, which for the first time went to 1/8 rounds rather than just finals. I just want to say thanks for the use of the club disc for the pursuit and team sprint, and for Billy's training plans and advice, and I'm looking forward to improving on these times and racing more throughout the year.
  4. Do race licences still get sent to the club first? I ordered mine beginning of January, and have paid club membership through British Cycling but still don't have it

  8. Hi looking for a bit of help, was wondering who writes the risk assessments for the club? I need to write some for the university club, and could use some advice on writing cycling (and discipline) specific ones. Thanks
