Auchencrow Thistle Season Calendar, 2018

22 MAR 2018 | BY JANE HOLMES

Tuesdays are club nights, from late March to the end of August. Riders gather at either Duns Square (D) or Preston Village Hall carpark (P). Please note meeting times for events in April and August will be 18:30 sharp, otherwise riders will meet at 19:00 sharp. Details and maps of the three hills selected for each of the King of the Mountains (KOTM) will be posted on the club Facebook page in the days before the event. Details of the Time Trial (TT) courses are available by PM through the Facebook page. The Australian Pursuit Races (APR) are handicap races run over three laps of the Mount Pleasant/Swinton Mill/Swinton circuit (25 miles in total). This year we have introduced two new events which we are very excited about, ‘Catch Me if You Can’ (details to follow), and a Sprints Event, which in time-honoured tradition will be called ‘Thirties’. Firm favourites such as the One-Mile TT and the Downhill challenge remain on the menu.
