The Geraint Thomas Velodrome Trip 2019

Last years cost for the trip was £42 and which includes 4 hour Velodrome hire, an accredited coach to lead the session and individual bike hire.

Road rides Cancelled- 27th April

Through discussion and in the Interest of Safety for our Club members. We’ve agreed that tomorrow’s Club rides are unfortunately cancelled, due to the threat of High winds / Stormy weather. It will be just our luck that it turns out glorious, however we simply cannot take any chances and what with current Weather Forecasts. Should you venture out, this is at your own risk and please ride safely. See you all next week
