The club’s AGM will be held this coming Monday (23rd November) at 19:30 at the Exmouth Arms, Bath Road, Cheltenham. For those attending, please famlilarise yourselves with the agenda (updated from the earlier published version) and the minutes of the 2014 AGM.

We have the following message from Chris, organiser of round 9:

Due to the bad weather of late and the impending deluge forecast on an already waterlogged ground , I have decided to move venue from Warmley Forest Country Park to avoid incurring damage to the park and hold it at the Middlemoor Cyclocross venue as per the last round 8, 2 weeks ago.

Detail has been amended on the BC site

We are promoting Round 10 of the Western Cyclocross League again at Denfurlong Farm on Sunday 29th, at the well known cycle cafe stop with the bottomless coffee pot at Chedworth.  I need a few helpers to  marshal car parking,  run sign in, marshal  the race and help clear away. If you can volunteer please contact John Hawes at


The agenda for the 2015 AGM is now available. Please take a look before the AGM. If you want a paper copy, please print your own.

All club trophies should be returned to Doug at Rose Orchard, Harp Hill, GL52 6PR no later than November 20th so that engraving can be done for this years winners.

With the onset of inclement weather it’s time to remind everyone to be considerate to other riders and yourself. Mudguards make a big difference to comfort when conditions worsen, even better with a mudflap; highlighted by last saturdays ride where a farmer had kindly coated the road in mud, and following anyone without guards gave you a facefull of countryside, plus the rider themselves an unsightly brown stain!
Punctures and mechanical problems also become more of an issue in poor conditions: make sure your tyres are in good condition, brake pads and chain aren’t worn out. Oh and check your spare inertubes and pump are ok.

Winter proof yourself with the new CCCC winter top. Contact Dave Tucker (clothing)
