Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers popular series of reliability trials continues this Sunday(Dec 2) with the 100km event. Heading out anti-clockwise, the route goes west to Blandford before turning south to Milton Abbas and Bovington Camp. The course then climbs up into the Purbeck Hills and Corfe Castle before heading across the heath to Wareham and back up to Merley. All are welcome! Start and finish is at Merley Community Centre (BH21 1XE), Harrier Drive, off Oakley Straight, Merley where parking, toilet facilities and light refreshments are available.

The first riders off are allowed 5 hours to complete the course with the fastest group expected to return in 3:30 hours
Members (First and Second Claim) £1 per Reliability Trial, other riders are required to become Associate Members of the Club and will pay £5 for all four Reliability Trials and all BJW Club Runs for a year. You can join on the day.
The term reliability trial dates back to the early years of the 20th century when cycling equipment was not so reliable, road surfaces were poor, sign-posting was even worse, and mobile telephones had yet to be invented. Reliability trial riders needed to be resilient, able to navigate, capable of dealing with minor mechanical problems, and fit enough to complete the course. Successful completion of all 4 BJW Reliability trials entitles the rider to a medal.
