Welcome to the LVRC Website

Welcome to the LVRC Website

The League of Veteran Racing Cyclists provides racing for cyclists who are veterans. To be eligible to join you must be 40 years of age or more; the League is open equally to male and female bike racers. Don't worry if you think you aren't fit enough to race - in the LVRC you are always allowed (encouraged, in fact) to compete in an older age group than your calendar age indicates. The only exception to this is National Championship and Percy Stallard Series races. This is deliberately designed to help people get back into racing, and move up the groups as fitness starts to return.

LVRC AGM SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 28th

 

This is the opportunity for LVRC members to have their say over the running of their organisation. So now is the time to put forward proposals to National Secretary Pete Wilson by August 21st so they can be considered by the National Executive.

Remember without your feedback and suggestions we cannot go forward with improving the LVRC... if there are no proposals we are left to assume that everything is running well.

Also remember that to have a proposal considered at the AGM you need to attend. It is no use complaining about the way things are run after September 28th if you have strong views come and express them.

 

Online Membership now available for Region 3 Members.

 

Your Executive Committee is pleased to announce that with immediate effect, Online membership is now available in Region 3 for all new and rejoining members.  Go to Join Online under Membership on this website and read the procedure all the way through before attempting to join or renew; the instructions differ between new and renewing members.  You should pay particular attention to the notes on which credit/debit cards are acceptable and on the insertion of your postcode details.

 

Region Treasurer Geoff Brandt will separately be e-mailing all those Region 3 members to advise them of the change.

 

BATTLE OF EDGE HILL- A REAL WINNER


I was race controller / Commissaire for the Battle of Edge Hill. I would like  to thank all riders for almost perfect race behaviour in tough conditions on a tough course. The odd straying over white lines was immediately corrected following a couple of blasts on the car horn. Well done and thanks to you all. I must also say the marshalling of corners and Junctions was clear and helpful sometimes at complex intersections with traffic. Well done and thanks to all marshals as well.  
 Don Parry, Chairman

 

 

I would like to congratulate Mick Ives and his team for a fantastic day at the Battle of Edge Hill RR.  The race HQ at Warwickshire College was the perfect base for riders, with showers, a bar area and plenty of parking .  On the road, the marshalling and accompanying race vehicles made for a very smooth and safe race.  Best of all was the race route, one of the most imaginative and creative routes.  This was a 90mile race, packing in 1500m climbing, with the parcours comprising, a wide loop, an inner loop containing 7 climbs:  three Category 3 climbs, and four Category 1 climbs!   Each climbed contributed to the King of the Mountains competition,  in addition to this there were King of the Sprints and Most Aggressive Riders competitions.

 

This was a classic, the route a throwback to the tough races of yesteryear, making for a brilliant day- tough and challenging, resulting in a very good race.

 

Well done to Mick and to everyone in his team for making this a classic.

 PERCY STALLARD G COMPETITION 2014

On current evidence there are fewer than normal competitors for this competition this year for a whole variety of reasons. Round 1--we only had 2 riders entered 1, and only 1 finished

This means that with the current scoring system one person riding very few events with little G category competition could easily be out of reach in the overall series within 2 races.

We have consulted a number of G category riders about this situation and in order to keep the overall series as open and competitive as possible, for as long as possible, we have agreed to introduce the following scoring system for the remainder of this year and review again at the end of the season.

Where 6 or more riders start—points awarded as follows, 6,5,4,3,2,1 – no change

Where 5 riders start—5,4,3,2,1

Where 4 riders start ---4,3,2,1

Where 3 riders start—3,2,1

Where 2 riders start—2,1

And where only 1 rider starts—1 point

I emphasise this is for G/H category only and this year only and has the support of all of those riders we consulted. Don Parry, Chairman
