The Kent Cycling Association's 25 mile 3 Up Team Time Trial takes place on Sunday 8 March. Traditionally the club has several teams taking part so if you want to enter the closing date for entries is Tuesday 24 February. Also don't forget that the club has to provide a certain number of marshals for KCA events during the season so if you ride in the 3 Up or any other KCA event please be prepared to marshal at a KCA event sometime this season if asked.
Following last months vote, and with great pleasure, we would like to formally announce the following new committee members/positions:
Sally Mortleman (Swim Rep), Vanessa Gilmartin (Assistant Swim Rep), Stephen Searby (Vice-chairman), Matt Bee (Webmaster in training) and the new Chairman, Charlie Mortleman.
First up will be Fiona Sweny, physiotherapist at Manor Clinic who will be talking about triathlon related injuries and more importantly how to avoid them. As well as having experience in treating athletes across a number of sports she is a former UK IM finisher. Fiona's CV can be found at www.7oaksphysio.co.uk.
