A final reminder that it is the club BBQ this Saturday (23rd) at the Royal Oak in Prestbury from 12pm with the food to be served around 1.30pm. Fingers are crossed for sunshine but if it does rain please don’t be put off as we have use of the Pavillion function room (and skittle alley) so will stay nice and dry.
Hope to see lots of you there!

The BBQ will be on Saturday 23rd September at the Royal Oak in Prestbury from 12pm, with the food to be served at 1.30pm. Please let Laura know within the next week if you have any dietary requirements.   Laura has only had one person tell her that they are gluten free so far so if there are any vegetarians out there who are planning on coming along then please let her know asap.  We will have use of the Pavilion function room and skittle alley like last year so it should be a great afternoon.

Despite the summery feel to the weather over the weekend, it’s getting towards autumn and that means cyclocross! The Western League starts this Sunday (3rd September) at Bradford Upon Avon, with a more local round following at Gloucester Boating Lake on the 10th.

C&CCC are hosting round 4 at Pittville Park (by the Prince of Wales Stadium) on Sunday September 24th and round 12 at Chedworth Farm Shop on November 26th. It would be great to see a good turn out from club members. MTBs are welcome as well as cyclocross bikes and you can even get away with less suitable bikes while it stays dry (any road bikewith decent clearances will do).

As ever we need marshalls. If you can help out at Pittville on Sunday 24th September please contact Gordon Smillie via the contact page or speak to Gordon or Rob Haynes who are often out on the Saturday or Sunday morning club rides. Help will be needed with setting out the course, sign-on, marhsalling the races and clearing up. Since the winter league runs separate races for different age groups those racing should be able to marshall for other age groups. Please get in touch if you can help out.

 

Our friends at VC Montpellier are holding an after show party at the Cheltenham Tour of Britain stage finish and they’ve been kind enough to invite us all along.
