All BJW reliability trials will start between 08:30-09:30, SIGN ON & GO! From Merley Community Centre BH21 1XE.
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 within the time limit.
Successful completion of all 4 BJW Reliability trials entitles the rider to a medal.

Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers winter club run calendar 2016/17.
All are welcome to attend Bournemouth Jubilee club runs, meet at Kinson Library on Sunday mornings.
Schedule for Winter 2016/17 is as follows. 9AM start (with exception of the Reliability Rides which start at Merley Community Centre).
The rides will generally be ~50-70 miles with a cafe stop at the destination. Club runs are not run at race pace, but you do need to be reasonably fit to complete them. You need a robust bike (not expensive) as some of the roads that the club runs use are minor B-roads so mudguards and 25c tyres are recommended in the Winter Months.
