New committee for 2017-2018

At our AGM on Sunday 12th November a new committee was elected for 2017-2018. The new committee is listed here. Minutes of the AGM are now available here or by following the link on the agenda page.

Riding guidelines

Rupert writes: We have recently published a set of riding guidelines. These have been specially written for use on our club rides. They give an introduction to the main elements of good group riding, and they are intended to replace some of the older information on the website.  

We'd like to invite everyone who rides with us to take a look at these riding guidelines to refresh your understanding of how best to ride in group. Most of you will know the basics, but there are probably a few tips for everyone. Small improvements by everyone should help our groups - and especially the larger groups - ride more safely without spoiling the social interaction that makes our rides so enjoyable.

If you have any questions or comments you are welcome to contact me or any member of the main committee. Contact details are on our contacts page. Rupert Goodings, Runs Secretary
