Pebble Hill - Betchworth - road re-opened

Pebble Hill Road mains replacement

Thursday 22 January
As Network Rail have now delayed their maintenance work at the Betchworth rail crossing scheduled for this weekend, Pebble Hill Road will be reopened at 5pm on Friday 23 January, two days earlier than we reported last week. 
This mains replacement works will now progress along the A25 for approximately 1.5 miles towards Dorking. Fortunately, the road is wide enough at this point for the majority of the works to be carried out without interrupting traffic flow. At the same time, our mains replacement work will continue in the fields adjacent to Pebble Hill Road which will include tunnelling under the railway line. 
We apologise in advance that we will have to close Pebble Hill Road once more around the end of March to decommission the old water main. We are in discussions with Surrey Highways about the timing and duration of this closure which we hope will take place during the Easter school holidays.  We will confirm the dates as soon as we can and publicise them through local community channels, the media and on our website
We would like to thank all drivers, residents and local businesses for their patience and cooperation while we carry out these essential works.
If you have any problems or questions, please contact our Customer Services Team on 01737 772000.

Sunday rides

Winter sundays rides start at 9.30 to avoid frost. No set destination as we play it by ear and who is out. They vary from 25 to50 miles depending on strength of rain. We hope to build up the rides this year and if we get enough out regularly we can do a set destination list. Horton country park Epsom.

Rawson Trophy Winners 2014

So after a full season of time trialling, the Kingston Phoenix Road Club won the SCCU Rawson Shield for the first time. It has been a truly magnificent effort by the racing members of the club, with 26 riders contributing to this win. Every entry gained one point towards the club's total and this shield is usually won with around 40 points, but we have absolutely smashed it this season with a total of 80 points; 41 points more than the second placed club, Addiscombe CC. Well done everybody.

Mike Morley, as the only KPRC member to ride every single event (that's a total of 326 racing miles by the way) he received the Shield with Brain Powney last Sunday at the SCCU  Prize Giving Lunch, held at the Copthorne Hotel.

However, this was a true team effort, so thank you to all the members who entered and raced in order for us to win this. I am hopeful of two things next year. Firstly, that a couple of other clubs might challenge us and that secondly, we win it again anyway.

Here's to next year.
