There's a fair bit of news on the Inter-club front.

First of all, the next event in the Inter-club Hilly Series is tonight. Here's what organiser Glenn Rhodes of Barrow Central Wheelers says:

Coast Road 21 mile TT – Inter Club Hilly event Wednesday July 1st 19:00 hours.

As part of the Inter-Club Hilly Series Barrow Central Wheelers are running the coast 21 course to offer a mixture of lumpy and flat for a more prolonged form of extreme pain. Results from this will form part of the Inter Club series so do your best to come along and represent your club.
This is a come along and sign on event, rather than pre-entry. 

Details of the HQ (post code LA12 9HT) and course can be found here, or by going via:

http://www.barrowcentralwhs.org.uk/

First rider goes off at 19:01 and sign on starts at 18:00.

Please arrive in good time to get parked (Leisure centre car park or on Priory Road North nearby).

Signing on closes at 18:45ish to allow the timekeeper to get to the start. The really fast riders do this course in around 50 minutes (the course record of 48:39 was set two years ago by Barrow CW's Oliver McKenna). If you think you’re going to be a touch slower than that it might be wise to sign on early to ensure an earlier start time.

Hope to see you there.

Then second, a week today - but not part of the hilly series (probably because it's too flat!) - there's an Inter-club 25 mile time trial on Levens.
 
So that's Wednesday 8th July 2015, at 7pm.
 
If you want to ride, please let Andrew Barlow know by emailing him at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Tell him the club you'll be riding for, & your best time over 25 miles (or 10 miles, if you've never ridden a 25 - this will help him determine the best order of riders on the night).
 
Andrew says "Last year worked well for marshalls. We need 1 - 2 volunteers from each club for this. There are three roundabouts and each club can marshall the one closest to them, as last year." Andrew adds that "We haven't got a time keeper at the moment, so if any one can do that, please let me know."
 
There will be food afterwards at the Hare & Hounds for 35-40 people. So when you contact him, please let Andrew know if you want to eat.
 
Then finally, third, here's the latest standings in the Inter-club competition following the 4th of 8 events the Jubilee Tower Hill Climb:
 
Lancaster CC 1069 points
Kent Valley RC 775 points
Lakes RC 474 points
Barrow CW 172 points
Lune RCC 120 points

Andrew notes that "at the half-way point and with both Lancaster CC’s events completed, they are now leading the table by nearly 300 points with 4 events to go."

But it'll be interesting to see how the table looks after tonight's Ulverston/Barrow/Ulverston event! We'll get the results from that, along with updated Inter-club standings, up here as soon as possible.

Thanks to Series organiser Andrew Barlow for all his hard work in making this happen.
