Hi Everyone

Steve Darnell and a couple of other club members and one other person are doing their own cycling trip to Mont Ventoux in Provence from 9th – 12th September.  They have had a fifth person drop out but are staying at a gite that sleeps five.  If anyone is keen to join them to fill the vacancy, get in touch with Steve via Strava or let me know and I can put you in touch with him via email.

Costs are a share of the 234 euros for the gite, plus your own air fare, food, share of minibus for transfers etc.  Flights are available from Heathrow to Marseilles.

With the Western Cyclocross league starting in just over a month on September 11th, it’s been proposed that we have some training sessions. These will take place at the Pittville Park course (near the Prince of Wales stadium) on Wednesday (from August 17th) evenings from 18:30. Anyone interested in cyclocross is more than welcome to come along on a cyclocross or mountain bike, no experience is needed.

Yes, it’s that time of year again, the club BBQ is here!
Date: Sunday 18th September
Time: 2pm
Location: The Royal Oak, Prestbury
We will have the pavilion function room for our sole use should we need somewhere to shelter from the rain. There will also be a cash bar in there for us to use and the skittle alley will be in action. There will be a skittles competition complete with prizes so you might want to start training now. The BBQ will be paid for by the club and there is no need to buy tickets but please let me know if you’re vegetarian.

Hope to see you all there!
