    Road Races

    Bynea Cycling Club - Road Races

    Bynea Cycling Club has members participating in road races across the country all throughout the racing season. We mostly race in the South Wales area and race Road Races along with Criteriums (closed circuit races). 

    Along with participation the club also organises the annual 'Bynea Tour de Carmarthenshire' Road Race, with this years (2013) route still to be confirmed. Confirmation of the route will be uploaded once we have it.

    All categories from 2nd down along with Juniors and Ladies can enter the race and it coincides with the Club Weekend in Llandovery at the end of May, so there is usually a lot of racing going on for everyone at this time.

    Currently we do not have a dedicated Road Race secretary for this year, however Tudor Thomas was previous RR sec and he also organises the Tour de Carmarthenshire so would be able to answer any of your questions. To contact him, please ring 07714288945.

     Alternatively you can see him on club nights.

    Sportives - Advice

    Welcome to our Sportive section.

    Sportives are among the most exciting and satisfying events to take part in on two wheels.

    They’re also extremely demanding.

    Get it right and your day will go like a dream – you’ll enjoy fantastic riding, good company and the satisfaction of a job well done.

    Get it wrong and there’s a whole world of pain coming your way.

    The difference between the two outcomes is in the preparation.

    Starting this month (January 2013), there will be ongoing training sessions to prepare yourself for both the short (40 - 50 miles), medium (50 - 75miles) and longer (75 - 130miles) sportives.

    These club training sessions will commence on Sunday mornings from the club house at 10.00am.

    It is also advisabe to get yourself in the saddle at least 2-3 times a week, so dont depend on the Sunday club runs alone!

    When training remember this...

     DONT SHY AWAY FROM THE HILLS!!

    Hills will build strength and stamina, as well as give you confidence to ride any hill that's set in your path.

     

    When riding a sportive you’ll often find yourself in a group travelling at a similar speed so here’s a few pointers from British Cycling's Coaching and Education team on how to make the most of it.

    • Ensure you are looking ahead and keeping a consistent line of travel.
    • It is important to be aware of your speed - there is no point sitting at a comfortable pace in the group and then putting the hammer down when it is your turn on the front as this will just fragment the group and most likely annoy those around you!
    • Communicate with other riders to establish your position or your intentions i.e. vocal instructions such as ‘coming through', ‘car up / down', ‘on your left' and ‘single out' are common place on the road and should be understood before setting off.
    • Hand signals perform a similar job and are just as important when passing instructions through a group from front to back.
    • Observe and anticipate other riders, other road traffic and the situations that are unfolding. Observation is not just limited to what you can see but also what you can hear too.
    • Avoid making any sudden movements, such as braking harshly or cutting across other riders. Only move if clear to do so, remember to observe and anticipate. Don't overlap wheels or force your way through.
    • Be assertive with your position; stand up if necessary to give yourself space and to prevent other riders from coming too close.
    • Be prepared to make contact, staying relaxed is the key, if you're not relaxed then when a rider makes contact you will increase your chances of crashing. Maintain a strong and relaxed position on the bike, loose shoulders with a bend in the elbow to allow for movement and contact.
    • Most of all, enjoy it! It's a great feeling sharing the work.

    All riders in a group have a responsibility for the safety of both themselves and the other members of the group. Knowledge and appreciation of the do's and don'ts of group riding ensure the safety of the group while maximising the benefits and enjoyment of riding with friends.

  • Touring

    Bynea Cycling Club - Touring

    Touring at Bynea CC goes hand in hand with Club Runs and are in many ways similar to Club Runs, just a lot bigger.

    Club Tours are organised by the same people as the Club Runs, the Club Captain and Vice Captain and indeed the members.

    This year (2012/13) Tim has kindly put himself forward to organise some of these events. Tim can be contacted on the following details:

    Tim: 01267267823 or email  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

    Unlike Club Runs, Club Tours normally cover a large distance and last an entire weekend, with the night spent in some form of accomodation. 

    If you would like to attend these weekends then you need to go to club nights in the month leading up to the tour, as sign up sheets are pinned up and deposits are collected for the accomodation. For the Club Weekend, simply contact the club Captain or Vice Captain to see whether there is a pitch available and sort your sleeping arrangements.

    All tours are a great adventure along with a great test of your legs over long distance and all travel through beautiful Welsh countryside. There is usually very good attendance to all tours so you will have plenty of people to talk to and have a laugh with and there will be plenty of memories (especially after the Saturday night)!

    For further info on club tours, please attend during our Wednesday night club night or any of the club runs.
