Do you have a special cycling event coming up? Do you want to improve your general performances next season? The club has organised a talk at the clubrooms on Friday 3rd November from 7.30 to 8.30pm by Kath Akoslovski.


Kath qualified as a British Cycling Coach in 2003, and is now a British Cycling Level 3 Coach (Road and Time Trialling) and Level 3 Track Coach. She is also a qualified Therapist and works with riders to improve mental ability and focus. Kath has coached many riders, from novices to amateur world championship riders. She started club cycling at 16, mainly long distance touring then started racing seriously when she was 26. Her main disciplines were Time Trials (all distances) and she has won open events at 10 miles and 24hrs. Kath also holds a number of Regional and National RRA records (Road Records Association) from 25 to 100 miles+. She has also competed in road races and track events. She enjoys Mountain Biking and other events to challenge her physically and mentally.


Kath’s talk will be fairly general and include coaching points but will be suitable for everyone those that race, those that don’t, sportive riders, training for a holiday etc. She likes to make talks interesting, engage the audience and aim that everyone will learn something. The initial talk will be 30-40 min with time for questions afterwards.


If this has aroused your interest do come along and bring a friend, everyone is welcome and light refreshments will be available afterwards.

Each year a trophy is awarded to the A5 rider who has produced the best performance or set of performances, from the year, in road or circuit races e.g. the MK bowl.


If you think you are in the frame please send, or phone, me the details so they can be considered. Don’t be shy.

This is an invitation to join the Banbury Star Cyclists' Club Autumn Reliability Ride which will take place on Sunday 8th October.


The picturesque 60 mile/100km ride is on quiet roads down to Burford, taking in the delights of the Cotswold's and with a few climbs thrown in for good measure.


Headquarters and ride starting point will be at Woodgreen Leisure Centre, Banbury, OH16 0HS. The HQ will be open from 08:30 and a local coffee vendor will be present. Entry fee is a mere £2.


Further information can be found by clicking on the link below. Please note there will be no route marking.



Some of the freewheel veterans were shocked by the momentous ride by Alan Hogg on Saturday as he pipped Lee Williams to claim the coveted trophy. Some experienced riders were heading home to the wind tunnels and drawing boards scratching their heads after, but all enjoyed this regular season-closer.


Thank you to all who participated in the club freewheel last Saturday and particularly John for leading the B Club-run to Farthingstone.
