Duathlon Club Championship results

CarlLouiseCongratulations to Carl Ferri and Louise Wells for winning this year's duathlon Club Championship at the Jekyll & Hyde Duathlon on Sunday 26 October.

One other result from the Great South Run this weekend.

Nell ran the Dublin Marathon today. Not sure what's happened with the timing but her chip time is slower than her finish time!

Winter ride times

Please remember that the clocks go back on Sunday 26 October. The meeting times on Sunday will therefore be 08:30 and 09:30.

CPT spotting

You can never be sure as a CPTer who's going to snap you when you're on a commute home ...

Berit on her bike Bernie on his bike

Berit and Bernie were on their way to the Winter Wheelin event organised by Lambeth Council on Clapham Common. The last in the series of events takes place in Brockwell Park on Tuesday 28 October, so if you are in the area stop by and say hello to Dawn.

Don't forget helmets save lives and you need to wear one on Club rides even if you decide to take a risk when out cycling on your own.

Weekend results

Contratulations to Peter Mack who ran the Henley Half Marathon on Sunday with another a PB time.

Bad luck to Carl Ferri who had a DNF at the 1485 Duathlon. Carl came in to transition first off the first 5k, led the race on the bike for 5 miles, then took the wrong turning which became a farm track and went back to the start.... DOH!!

Results are also available form the Cabbage Patch 10 and the Croydon 10k.

Cycling Weekly

Cycling Weekly recently featured an article about the Belvedere Hotel in Riccione Italy, popular with Crystal Palace Triathletes for cycling holidays. The article includes a reference to CPT as the author was in Riccione at the same time as our members in October. Photos from the trip will be available on the website soon but in the meantime, take a look at the article.

AGM date

Please make a note in your diary that this year's AGM will be held at The Bridge, after the swim session, on Thursday 20th November. Refreshments will be provided.

Change to run schedule

Please note the change to the running schedule for the nights of 29 October and 5 November.

Crystal Palace Canter

Ron and Ruki raced the monthly Crystal Palace Canter which is approximately 5k. This takes place on the first Tuesday of every month if you are free to join in.


Well done to everyone who faced the dreadful weather conditions yesterday for the Dulwich 10k and the Ride of the Falling Leaves cyclosportive. Bad luck to Charles who took a wrong turning and only did 100km of the cyclosportive. Congratulations to Peter Mack who got another PB at the Wimbledon 10.

Photographs from the Dulwich 10k are available on the ProSport Photos website.
