A recent Sunday club run to Pewsey and back totalled nearly 70 miles. But armed with a map and a compass I repeated the trip in a direct straight route i.e. avoiding Wantage this time, covering the journey in only 34 miles thus saving a great deal in time, trouble and effort. My route took me past some beautiful countryside through fields of sheep, cattle and pigs and even included a farmer waving at me. The only disadvantage being was trying to avoid all the brown lumpy stuff and of course carrying my bicycle over hedges, ditches and dry stone walls. Please excuse me writing to you using a wax crayon, as we are not allowed by the matron to have any thing sharp. Yours insincerely
Mr. P. Aradox

[Your initiative deserves you credit – with that sort of training we will certainly have to put you down for the next cyclo cross season Ed] *********

Cycling for Everyone

SPANISH OMMELETTE NO 2 by Bob Lyle This year we decided to have three weeks’ cycling in Moraira on the Costa Brava. Moraira, if you recollect from my note 2 years ago, is a British enclave about 30 miles north of Benidorm, full of English speaking cyclists (if you count Canadians as English-speaking) It is also close to the Graham Baxter training camps. Amazingly, the same riders were there including six Canadians as previously and we had some great rides again. This year the weather was poor (although better than at home) At one stage we had five days of almost continuous rain. Not what we had planned for. The locals reckoned it was the worst March for 20 years. My cycling form was not very good this time, as I had only done soft mileage throughout the winter and after our Australian trip I was still half a stone over my weight of two years earlier. There were 3 rides new to me. The first was to Guadelest (altitude c.1000 metres), a well known tourist hot spot, with splendid mountain views at the top. It’s basically a 25 mile climb up from the coast, but I managed to be first to the top on a swelteringly hot day, descending by a new road with speeds in excess of 50 mph. Great stuff. Later in the week, with friends Snotty and Sweat (named for obvious reasons) we climbed Vall d’Ebo, a monster of a climb, 12 kms at about one in fifteen, on an atrocious road surface, on a freezing cold day when I was the only one wearing shorts. I really struggled on this climb because of the cold and as the road doesn’t really go anywhere, we came back the same way and I could barely manage to operate the brakes. The Vall d’Ebo ride was a bit like a fairy story. Snotty was describing the climb to us; it started as a 4 km, then 8k, and finally 12 k hill,. The climbing was easy, then fairly hard, then difficult. No mention was ever made of the road surface. Sweaty became the giant killer as it was his last riding day – he was keen to cut the hill down to size and succeeded in taking two minutes out of me as revenge for his taking a pasting on Gaudalest. I saw that Sweaty got in the prizes in his first LVRC race upon his return to the UK. The third new ride for me was up to Castel de Castells, a good long steady ride on mainly traffic free roads. I have to confess that whilst in Spain I fell in love. Sometimes these things just happen when you least expect them to. I knew from the moment I saw her it was love. I had to tell Jean, who acted predictably, saying this was grounds for divorce. Reluctantly, after much soul-searching, I gave up my dream – but often, on a quiet drizzly spring day, I still lust after her - an Orbea Orca Carbon-fibre frame, curves in all the right places, weighing only a featherlight 1 Kg, wondering what might have been. Perhaps she wouldn’t have performed

well in the English climate, perhaps the other bikes in the garage would have shunned her – but at only 1700 euros (£1200), compared to £1700 in the UK, she was hard to resist. But with a heavy heart, resist I did. On a more cheerful note, more and more people are moving to Spain, so property prices are rising rapidly and are no longer cheap. However, diesel is 42p a litre compared with 74p here, booze, fruit and veg are still cheaper than at home, with 5kg of oranges costing £2.50 (well Valencia is renowned for orange growing) Rented accommodation is very cheap prior to April. By pure chance we met a couple from Newbury, who I used to play squash with, who have moved there permanently – they have a large villa and pool for themselves and rent another one out for income. As many of you will know, my other hobby is birdwatching and we spent 3 days exploring the Pego marshes, delighting in spotting birds we never see in the UK as well as many others we do.Jeans hobby is tennis and Sol Park club slotted her into their club afternoons twice a week, all of them dry. I am not sure whether we will do this trip again, on account of the vagaries of the weather – there’s not a lot to do when the weather is bad – we’ve already done the tourist sites, and there’s only so many times you can play mini-golf, or walk to El Portet. The accommodation is geared to hot weather and can be a bit cold when the temperature drops, despite the central heating – and the only English TV is CNN or Bloomberg. You can find things to do in your own home when the weather’s bad, or you can go visit someone, do a household chore, or just watch TV. Luckily, we had friends come out and stay with us on 2 occasions, and friends of ours were staying four doors down, so having company made all the difference. Shall we do it next year? Who knows – can they have wet springs two years in a row? *********

Surfing on Two Wheels by Ian Lakey
Those of you that use the Internet will at sometime, I hope, have looked at the club website . If you are a regular user of the site then you will have noticed a significant change to the site that happened around February of this year. During the winter I spent many hours completing a fundamental change to the way the site work and how the information was delivered. Apologies are now probably due to those not in the least bit interested in the techie stuff, you can skip a few paragraphs if you like. Prior to February the site was built using static HTML (Hyper Text Mark-up Language) pages. Each page was independent of any other and rather like pages of a book any information contained on more than one page was repeated in every other page that that information existed in. For example, in the results pages, my name “Ian Lakey” appeared in many different results, and each time it appeared it was separately entered into the content for that page. If anyone is in the least bit interested as to what HTML code looks like, from your Internet Explorer window (assuming you use Internet

ChainMail May/June 2004

Page 2 of 8

Explorer), click on the View menu and then “View Source”. Using static HTML means that the data is locked up in individual pages and that for every new piece of information that is added, the page has to be edited or a whole new page has to be written. From last October I began to build a new site for the club. The possibilities had become evident after the introduction of the club Message Board. The Message Board was introduced over a year ago and allows club members to post their own messages and comments to the website. The Message Board element of the website has always been displayed through Dynamic HTML and the information entered and subsequently displayed is stored in a database. Storing information in a database opens up a whole new host of possibilities; a piece of information can be stored just once and then referenced in an almost unlimited array of possibilities. The current website took around 4 months to complete and many hours of effort in the evenings. I have to say that this was largely due to the fact that it was all manually programmed rather than using some of the “whizzy” but expensive development tools that are available. The new website uses almost entirely Dynamic HTML, this means that a program generates the page as a link or button is click. All the data comes from a database and therefore adding or changing the data also changes the content of the web page, or new pages become available. This means that each time “Ian Lakey” or “Newbury RC” is displayed, this can be stored just once in the database. The pages are built dynamically using a scripting language called PHP (personal home page). The database is a relational database called “MySQL”. Both of these are provided by the Internet Service Provider hosting the club’s website. Once that data is stored in the database it can by queried in a variety of ways and offers many possibilities for its use. Currently the facilities offered are largely based on the type of information that was available from the old site. However where there is a need or requirement it is possible to combine and use that data in any meaningful way. For example; all the results are now stored in the database. Therefore it would be possible for instance to have a function that displayed all times a particular rider recorded on the H10/3 course, or the fastest 10 mile time a particular rider has recorded in the past 3 years. Bear in mind though that such functions are only useful if the data contained in the database is accurate and complete. So what use is all this to you, the club member or visitor. Obviously the primary role of the website is to provide information about the club, be this to club members or others. Some parts of the website are more useful to members, whilst others are aimed at non-members. Information such as links to other sites may be equally useful to both groups. One of the benefits the site offers is the ability to provide up to date information very quickly, for example a change to an event location, or a cancellation. This is obviously only beneficial if the site is viewed regularly, and so far there hasn’t been a need to distribute this information. The main functions of the site are currently:

• • • • • • • • •

• • • • • • •

Calendar – Separately searchable for Time Trials, Club Runs, Social Events etc. Message Board – Notices and messages posted by club members Club Information – Comprehensive descriptions of the various club activity areas Results – Results from all events involving club members. Contacts – Contact points for club functions (Committee Members) Old Site – A link back to a few areas not yet available from the new site, mostly old results. Club Room – Information and a map as to when and where we meet. Affiliations – Who we are affiliated to and links to available sites. Links – Links to other sites based on Other Clubs, Companies and Shops (Cycle Related only), Forum or Informational Sites, Cycling or club related Organisations, and finally Travel (Cycling holidays and accommodation). Courses – Description of all racing courses used by the club with map information. Downloads – Club documentation, newsletters and affiliate forms. Coaching – Details of club coaches. Trophies – Description of club trophies and how to win them. Club Records – Current records and holders. Café Stops – Café stops used on club runs or local to Newbury. Terms of Usage – Disclaimers etc.

As you can see there is already a lot of information available. One area that has seen a disappointing level of usage is the Message Board. It is one of those facilities that the more members see it being used, the more they will use it. Most essentially messages posted to the Message Board can be made to appear on the site Home Page. Therefore all members‡ have the ability to influence the content of the page that greets all visitors to the site. This means that anyone in the club can notified everyone via the Message Board (and Home Page) of an important piece of information or it can be used simply to let club mates know what they are planning to do the next weekend. I accept that at present the Message Board is not in an ideal format, and also it is restricted to use only by club members. However, both of these issues are being looked at with a view to a possible change at some stage. The results are incomplete as I don’t always have sight of all member’s activities, information on the website would be better if all results were updated and then the data set would be much more useful. One item of benefit to the club as a whole is the link to the “wiggle” Internet cycle shop. Whilst the club is not suggesting that you should shop at “wiggle”, if you do so, and link to it from the club website any purchase will earn 10% of your spending for club funds. I could go into a lot more detail about the information available on the site but perhaps it is just best left for you to browse what’s there.

Having spent many winter months reprogramming the site my activities are currently limited to updating results and the club calendar with the occasional additional of more link sites. However I am intending to do more development work on the site in the coming close season, time and my wife permitting. I have identified some areas to improve, however it is the club’s site, and my programming ability allowing for it I am happy to consider any requests for particular functions to be added or existing functions modified. Please take the opportunity if you are able to look at the site, if nothing else the incrementing counter on the home page at least makes me feel that my efforts have not been completely wasted, currently we are approaching our 10,000 visit. I would be very grateful for any comments regarding the site, using it and the information available. Equally if you see something that could be improved or is missing altogether, please tell me. You can e-mail me on

All in all a great holiday, for those who have not been on one of the annual cycle holidays it is a must. *********

Racing Scene
Road Racing
Portsdown Spring Road Race Three Newbury Riders, Ian Greenstreet, Martyn Harris and Damian Lewis attended the Portsdown Spring Road Race on Sunday 9th May. The event had a full field of 60 riders and covered 60Km including 5 ascents of Portsdown Hill. The weather was overcast but dry and proved to be good racing conditions. The main field was fragmented after every climb up Portsdown hill with many riders retiring early. There was a lead group of 20 riders that got away on the 3rd lap but unfortunately this lead did not last more than a lap. The main bunch was back together for the final ascent of Portsdown hill where a group of 12 riders managed to get a small lead over the rest of the main bunch. Martyn Harris managed to stay with this group and finished in 10th place earning himself another BCF point, with Ian Greenstreet finishing close behind in 25th and Damian Lewis unable to complete the race due to illness. *********

Sauvat 2004 by Chris Treacher
Away from the local scene, the ‘ Magnificent Seven’ travelled through France to cycle in the Dordogne. A farmhouse in the small village of Sauvat in the Auvergne acted as a base with daily sorties, organised by D Jones. Cycling through beautiful countryside, in glorious weather and taking time to enjoy the local cuisine. By the end of the week we had covered just over three hundred miles. There will be many memorable highlights. On one descent caution was abandoned in favour of a gun ho attitude. By miscalculating a hairpin bend at 40mph one of our more senior riders had to unwrap himself from some barb-wired fencing. There were other less spectacular dismounts, even going up hill! Climbing Cols is one of those activities you just have to do. After cycling two thirds up the Col De Peyron, at approx. 1600m one of the highest mountains in the region, we encountered a barrier advising the road was closed. From miles away snow could be seen on the Col peak so we assumed that snow still lay on the roads making it impassable for motorists. Not to be put off we carried on regardless. However on rounding a bend we came across the reason for the road closure, there was no road. New tarmac was being laid. We tiptoed past the hazard, got back on our bikes to climb to the top to enjoy the splendid views. Talking of splendid views, one of our party had been over energetic in the cleaning department, it was not DL (son of squeaky clean) but yet again a mature cyclist with many years experience. Perhaps at the back of his mind, showing his ‘derrier’ was a tactic employed to put off and therefore slow down those cycling behind. However checking your apparel before setting out is advisable, to make sure that you have not washed your clothes so much they become SEE THROUGH.

********* Face from the Past: Whilst cycling home from the club 25 on the spring bank holiday as Bob and I were summiting the climb at Douai Abbey who should pop out of a side road but Alistair Masson. Smartly attired on a Trek road machine he still looked the business and was certainly too much for me on the climbs. He is now married with a youngster and living in Ecchinswell in one of the new house opposite the pond. [Ed]
