We are now preparing the AGM which gives everyone an opportunity to come along and partake in club management and decide what next year might look like.

The AGM will be at the Exmouth Arms (167 Bath Rd, Cheltenham GL53 7LX) with a 7pm gathering to start at 7.30 on Wednesday 15th November. All club members are welcome.

Have YOU thought of getting more involved with the club? Want to do more to help the club run? Well this is YOUR CHANCE. All elected club roles are considered in the AGM, but this year we are particularly keen to get volunteers for roles which we know will become vacant after the event. These are:
The Race Captain (to oversee all aspects of club races), the Social Secretary (to organise events like the AGM, BBQ, Xmas bash) and Member without portfolio (a very important Committee role which is intended to ensure a general interest voice on the Committee).

The full agenda is now available HERE on the AGM section of the club website but it will also be circulated shortly.

Please note that due to the annual Cheltenham Half Marathon being held next Sunday our rides will start at our alternative meet point which is at the Meadow Café Old Bath Road.

This only applies to the Sunday rides, Saturday will be as per normal.

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.
