Another thank you to everyone who helped run the two rounds in Pittville Park.
The autumn/winter leauge isn’t far off with the first round on September 3rd. C&CCC will be hosting on Sunday September 24th in Pittville Park and Sunday November 26th at Chedworth Farm Shop.
There is a more detailed briefing in your email inbox but here is a quick overview of the main news…
The event itself is being billed as a “Festival of Cycling”. There will be a family fun area in Pittville Park with lots of different rides, a large TV screen and other stuff…and a series of cyclocross races for the under 16s run by the CTWYCC.
The club will be hosting a market stall in the Prom from mid-morning onwards…although it will be mysteriously closed around 3pm for 30 minutes ;-). The idea is that we will use it as a focal/drop-off point for club members, have a turbo setup and perhaps a few items on as well as club related literature for anyone interested in joining. There will also be a shared multi-club gazebo in Pittville.
This is an exciting opportunity for you to get involved in something that could create a cycling legacy for years to come so why not get involved as well as coming along to see the race?
Council Volunteers: Recruited through the weblink and expected to be general helpers (such as youngster shepherds, junction marshaling or perhaps signage assistants, etc).
Club Volunteers: Guinea pigs for the turbo as well as stall assistants for both the Prom and Pittville. Also, we need a graphic designer who will help us put together an A5 flyer to be given out. Any event organisers out there who fancy owning the Market stall as a mini-project and making it happen?
Come on folks, get your hands up! Expressions of ‘interest’ either directly to the council or ping Robin/Simon an email…
There was a great turnout from the club at the weekend in the Glos-based sportive in aid of Pied Piper, organised by none other than our own Mr Bagman! The weather was lovely, the sausage rolls plentiful and the event raised a large amount of cash for a very worthwhile local charity. See who you recognise in the piccie (yes, it is small but if you click on it in a browser then it should open up full screen)!!
