Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers 75 Mile Reliability Trial

Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers popular series of reliability trials continues this Sunday (Jan 20) with the 75 event. The course heads north to Cranborne, Rockbourne and Coombe Bissett before climbing up to Shaftesbury. Turning south, the riders will climb the dreaded Okeford Hill after 62 miles before returning to Merley via Blandford & Wimborne 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 6 hours to complete the course with the fastest group expected to return in 5.15 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.
