C&CCC are hosting Western League Cyclocross on Wednesday 5th July in Pittvillie Park (by the Prince of Wales Stadium). The under 12’s race starts at 19:00, with the senior/women/vets/youth race starting at 19:30. It would be great to see a good turn out from club members, whether that be on a cyclocross bike, an MTB or even a road bike with decent tyre clearance.

Volunteers are needed to help with marshalling and running the event sign-on between 18:00 and 21:00. If anyone is free on the Wednesday afternoon and can assist with setting up the could, that would be great. If you can help with any of this, please contact Rob (listed as website rather than cyclocross) via the contact page.

Hi all,
As mentioned previously, the annual club BBQ will be happening on Saturday 23rd September from 12pm at the Royal Oak in Prestbury.
The food will be paid for by the club, just make sure you bring drinking money!
There is no need to book your place but please let me know if you are a vegetarian.


John Lewis is a regular CTC rider who has also ridden with the C&CCC occasionally so some of you may know him. It recently came to light that some riders who do know John had not heard that he’d had a very serious accident in February, crossing the road in Gloucester. His injuries include brain and spinal issues so his situation was very critical. He was in ITU in Bristol and Cheltenham for some time and then after making good progress was transferred to the Salisbury Spinal Unit. However in late May had a bit of a set-back and was returned to Bristol Southmead ITU and back on the ventilator. If you would like to pass a message to John, please email Caburn Chaimberlain of CTC (Caburn@Phonecoop.coop) who is in touch with the family.

Just a quick reminder that the club road race is on this w/e so we wish all the riders well and extend our thanks to the volunteers who have made this possible.

For those who might be interested in watching then it really is a cracking event based around Colne Saddlery near Bourton/Upper Slaughter.  The race starts at 9:30am and should finish sometime around 12ish.  There is usually a pop-up coffee stop at the start/finish line so it makes an ideal place to settle down and watch the riders come around on the laps.  If anyone wants to get a few miles in before catching up with the racing at ~11 then Robin is planning a 30-35 mile ride in the Cotswolds before crossing the race route and heading to the finish line in plenty of time to catch the last couple of laps.  Usual meeting place/time for a Sunday, so Pump Rooms at 08:30.  The pace will be dependent on those who fancy it, although there will be an inevitable degree of climbing.  Route to be curtailed as approp based on pace, etc.
