Lea Valley CC was formed out of the merger of two much older clubs – Comet and Crescent. Their names live on in our last two open time trials of the season.
On Sunday 29th October there is the Crescent Open 30-mile time trial. Entry forms should be sent to Gary Boyd at 3 Blundell Close, Hackney, London E8 2RS before the closing date of next Tuesday (17th September).
The following Sunday (6th October) is the Comet Open 25-mile time trial. Entries should be sent to Dave McCarthy at 13 Dumont Road, Stoke Newington, London N16 0NR by 24th September.
Both events cost £8.50 to enter. The first rider off in each event will be at 8am, so it’s an early start. Both are on the E1 course, so we will be using the club race HQ near Ugley (see map here: http://www.streetmap.co.uk/map.srf?X=552715&Y=229420&A=Y&Z=120 ). Both courses head north to the Sawston roundabout, at this point the 25 turns around and heads back south, whereas the 30 heads west for a little extra loop.

Sorry - that should say Sunday 29th SEPTEMBER
