From Saturday 22nd July 2017 the Saturday club ride will leave from Thorneyford Farm. This is the future departure point for the Saturday rides only. All other rides will continue to leave fom the relative chosen departure points. Could you please pass this information to all it may concern.
In February this year we were all shocked by Bob Melrose's sudden passing after a short illness.
Many members will have known Bob as the person who organised the Saturday and Thursday (TOGs) club rides and was often the first person prospective new members met when joining a club ride for the first time.
He was without doubt a most popular member within the club, a past Club Person of the Year and Captain and is sadly missed. It is therefore fitting to mark his passing the club will be organising a Memorial Ride to the Hearth at Horsley on Saturday 15th July. Club members will be able to share over a buffet our happy memories of Bob and favourite stories (long ones cut short of course), and Bob's wife Ann will be joining us on the day too
To allow as many club members as possible to attend if they wish, there will be two starting points for the ride:
We can only accommodate 80 people so places will be on a first come first served basis.

The cost is £5 per person, and your place will only be reserved once payment had been received. The deadline for bookings (and payment) is Saturday 8th July, although spaces may well have sold out before then!

Youth Go-Ride Coaching
The Go-Ride coaching will move back to Thorneyford Farm from tomorrow Saturday 6th May. We will continue here every Saturday up to the summer holidays but take one Saturday off over the Bank holiday weekend on Sat 27th May. The sessions will continue to use a combination of field and hard surfaces so mountain bikes or similar with gears will be required.

Time: 8:45 - 9:45 Cost: £3 on the day
The coaches will split the riders into appropriate groups based on their ability.
