Ipswich Bicycle Club is pleased to be holding its delayed Spring Scramble on the 22nd July, on the Butley circuit. Moving course for logistical reasons, the route is shorter and much flatter than the Gosbeck circuit which we have used for many years. The cold weather in March forced us to reschedule both races to the next available date in the Eastern Road Race League calendar. There will be the Men’s 3/4 in the morning, and after lunch a Women’s 2/3/4.
The Members of Ipswich Bicycle Club have pulled together to produce an excellent day of racing. Together with British Cycling commissaires, the National Escort Group, and local Accredited Marshals.
A small number of Entry on the Line is available for the Men, and with slightly more for the Women. With temperatures expected to hit 24C on Sunday afternoon, and remaining dry all day. EOL is £25.

The Hill Climbing season is upon us again, so, as last year, we are heading back to Semer and Watson’s Hill for the 2017 event, followed by the Half Wheel competition just round the corner.
On Saturday October 7th the SSR (Saturday Social Rides) will head over to Semer, so that those who want to have a go can and others can offer support. Anyone arriving early can get a coffee from Hollow Tree Farm nearby.
Registering will be done on the day at the bottom of the hill between 9:45 and 10am when the first rider will start.
As for the Half Wheel this is always a fun chance of a trophy and everyone is in with a chance.
Please note the Sudbury Open is the following weekend (Sunday 15th) so it’s a great chance to test those legs.
