Club History

The Janus was formed in 1953. Following repeated attempts by the founder members whilst in another club to have ladies accepted into that club, and in spite of the passing of a resolution to allow this, opposition was such that the proposal was reversed. The 9 founder members of the Janus eventually felt that their only way forward was to resign en masse and start a club of their own.

Janus is a Roman god and Apollo was thought to be a Greek god. However it appears that Apollo was both! Quote: ’Apollo is one of the most important and complex of the Olympian deities in classical Greek and Roman religion and Greek and Roman mythology

News September 2016

Stan Jones

It is with sadness that I have to record that Stan Jones died on 2nd August at the age of 90. Stan was a member of the Warrington Road Club and also a social member of the Janus for a great many years. Stan, ‘Crasher’ as he was often called for obvious reasons, became well known for a number of years for his provision and use of CB radios providing a results link between the timekeeper and race headquarters for a great many local timetrials. The use of mobile phones brought this to an end but sometimes with the poor reception in some of the village halls Stan’s system would at times be superior.

The final 25 was on Saturday, the Seamons CC 25. Our only rider was Phil Robinson who finished with a good time of 58.53 in windy conditions. The only other event we have this year is the CLUB HILL CLIMB which will once again be the Cheshire Roads Club event on Sunday 9th October. The event is on Long Hill starting at 1100 and entry is £3.00. At one time we used to get a lot riding from the club, last year was not too bad but it would be nice to get a really good turnout this year.

 

 

 

Warrington Cycle Campaign

This site contains quite a lot of useful information on safer cycling. An interesting feature is the ‘Facility of the Month’. Updated monthly, this highlights some of the amazing facilities provided by Local Authorities for cyclists. It will either make you laugh, make you very annoyed or maybe both. It shows we have a long, long way to go before cycling is accepted as something that the Government and the Local Authorities are prepared to take seriously.

Access this website , warrington cycle campaign.co.uk.look down the list on the left hand side and select ‘Facility of the Month’. Once on that page you can tab back through several years worth of offerings. Some may have been fixed by now but don’t hold your breath.

Club Clothing

 

Chris has done quite a lot of work on a possible re-design of club clothing. If you are on E mails you may have received details from him with some proposed designs. Please give him your comments so that we can discuss this further at the next meeting. I have already made use of his club logo as the header on this newssheet! New Member (sort of!!) Welcome to the Janus for David Flux. David joined us in August last year but I have only recently received his membership form. He rode several evening 10’s as a guest last year and will hopefully have a good season in 2016.
