Round 4 of the Mud, Sweat and Gears series, held at Codham Park, is only a few days away.  There are quite a few club members taking part, lets just hope the weather holds out!

This year's Dunwich Dynamo is on the 24th & 25th of July; the event consists of a 120mile, over-night ride from Hackney, East London to Dunwich, Suffolk.

There are more than 10 TROGs planning on shedding the knobbly tyres and swapping them for slicks this year.  Full details of our plan can be found here; TROG Dark-side Forum

Here's what the weather has in store!

The first Sunday of the month is approaching which means it's trail building day.

As usual the plan is to meet at Sandgalls Car Park for 9am, have a quick safety talk, head out to the relevant work areas and there will undoubtedly be a ride of the loop afterwards.  Full details are available on the Trail-building Forum.

If you've not come along before but would like to help, please feel free to join in, the more hands we have, the easier it is.

On Wednesday 23rd June we're planning a social ride in the Kesgrave and East Ipswich Area followed by a curry and a few beers.  Planning is well under way and we currently have 23 people attending, if you'd like to come along please see the full details in the Members Lounge forum.

Suffolk Cycling Club TROG (Tunstall and Rendlesham Off-Road Group) traveled to Sussex on 11/04/10 to compete in the Mucoff8 mountain bike event and came home with some impressive results.

The marathon 8-hour race, open to individuals and teams, with over 600 competitors was a real test of endurance.

Club member and solo competitor Andrew Ward found the course challenging but rewarding; ‘it was a hard eight miles that seemed you were either slogging up-hill or hurtling down-hill, often negotiating tree roots or plowing through knee-deep mud - everything a good mountain bike course should be’.

TROG riders recorded the following results; Mike Moore and Dan Howe (4th pairs male), Andrew Ward (6th solo vets), Les Heather (14th solo male) and Stuart Brierley (24th solo masters). High finishes were also expected from Danny Ellis and Kim Marsh but both riders retired injured.

Club Chairman Phil Simmons explains how this experience is helping the club; ‘We are chuffed to bits with the level of performance shown by the race team, who fly the flag for TROG across the country. This is only the tip of the TROG iceberg however as the club is really focused on grass-roots, providing regular off-road cycling opportunities for all abilities at Tunstall and Rendlesham Forest.’
