Welcome to the LVRC Website

Welcome to the LVRC Website

The League of Veteran Racing Cyclists provides racing for cyclists who are veterans. To be eligible to join you must be 40 years of age or more; the League is open equally to male and female bike racers. Don't worry if you think you aren't fit enough to race - in the LVRC you are always allowed (encouraged, in fact) to compete in an older age group than your calendar age indicates. The only exception to this is National Championship and Percy Stallard Series races. This is deliberately designed to help people get back into racing, and move up the groups as fitness starts to return.

Election of officials

All officials agreed to stand again and were re-elected en bloc

 

Proposals.

 

Proposal 1. Defeated. 5 for 15 against. The committee agreed to review the Rules of Racing and Organisation and Safety Handbook to take into account current worries re the conduct of some competitors in events.

 

Proposals 2.3.4 were amended with the agreement of the meeting and passed as follows.

“All Race entry fees will be at the discretion of the organiser with a maximum cap of £15 per race. The only variation to this will be where third party owned circuits need to be hired and then the entry fee will reflect the cost of hire of the circuit. Stage race entry fees should be not greater than the number of stages multiplied by the maximum fee of £15 per race.” 

 

It was agreed this was to allow for Extra first aid, more race cars where necessary and high charges for circuits (Olympic Park and Ciclo Park) and NOT higher prizes or extra donations for charities. Organisers should keep to £10.00 if possible and entry fee should be stated in handbook

This was carried unanimously in the meeting.

 

Proposal 5.  New rule 23. (Delete rule 23b) The closing date for all entries shall be three weeks before the date of the event. Entries accepted for all events shall be at the discretion of the organiser. Until further notice all rider entries for G, H and I categories received by the closing date must be accepted.  Carried unanimously by the meeting.

 

 Proposal 6. Rule 28. Adopted as a trial for 2014 To be ratified as it stands. Carried unanimously by the meeting.

 

 

Date of 2015 AGM  27th September. Venue Napton Victory Hall after the Time Trial Championships.
