Liverpool Century Road Club

2019 Speedruns begin this week!

The 2019 version of the LCRC classic Speedruns begin on Sunday!

From Alex Nurse: As the winter starts drawing to a close and the season is only just round the corner, it's time for the Speedruns.

Leaving the Mills at 10:15 (there will be a group riding out from the tunnel), this is the opportunity to sharpen your race senses over the next 4 weeks.

Each week we ride out as one group (Avrg 17-18mph) to the furthest point before splitting into an A and a B group, and then it's fastest one back (pace is as fast as the strongest rider[s]).

I'll post the route for the As and Bs in the comments as Garmin files.

All LCRC members are welcome, but a few things to remember:

  • this is a drop ride. Once we turn for home the group won't wait, so make sure you know the way back to the Mills.
  • make sure your bike is in working order, as if you have a mechanical once the hammer goes down you'll be sorting it on your own.
  • This is a good opportunity to familiarise yourself with 'through and off' technique, but you should be comfortable riding in a group at high speed and holding a wheel.
  • Mudguards are a must.
