The Committee wish to thank Clive Lewis, Aidan Godwin, Duncan Bednall, Tony Payne, Robert Evans, Simon Worsley, Steve Miles, Phil Horne and Julia T for their contribution today, at our second Ride Leaders Course.

The event was very successful and we are sure a number of these attendees will volunteer to lead one of our popular group rides or help a ride leader, in coming months.

The instructors from Cycling UK were very impressed with C&CCC as a club and the contribution all the attendees made on the day.

Everyone attending was awarded a certificate of competence as a group ride leader along with a card for them to carry around with them.  This certificate does not have to be renewed and will remain with the rider.

A group photo was taken and provided below:

The latest information from Gloucestershire Highways suggests that the fibre optic cable laying from Alderton to Teddington roundabout on the B4077, will now extend until the 11th May.

We therefore, have to continue using the K39/8 with base HQ at Teddington Village Hall for Thursday 26th April and Thursday 10th May.  The village hall will be open from 18:00 hrs to 18:45 hrs and the start will be 19:01 hrs from Orchard Industrial Estate.

Velo Vitesse will host the 10 mile TT Event on Thursday 3rd May at Corse & Staunton Village Hall (GL19 3RQ).  The course will be the U713. The village hall will be open from 18:00 hrs to 18:45 hrs and the start will be 19:01 hrs.

We require helpers for our event on the 10th May, so please contact Gary ASAP.

On Sunday May 13th C&CCC host a prestigious round of the Cotswold League road race.

Over the challenging Bourton circuit sixty of the regions best cat 2,3 & 4 riders will battle it out over sixty miles of the stunning Cotswold countryside. Speeds most of us can only dream of, the mere mortals amongst us can admire from the sidelines, help running it, or for those with grand ambitions, maybe delusions, can enter and have a go themselves!

So back to the theme: your County Club needs you. Sunday May 13th: please put it in your diary and please volunteer to help make the event a great success. Should you be able to help then for your trouble the club will cross your palm with 200 of the Queen’s shillings (£10) in cash!

We need volunteers to support everything from signing on, marshalling, finish judges, commissaire support, lead car drivers, broom wagon, neutral support and others.

For those who fancy the experience (and have a race licence!) why not enter: after all wheel sucking is legal in a road race! You never know: points could be yours for the taking.

Please consider helping out, we will have motorcycle riders and accredited marshals from British Cycling but the club needs to support many other tasks.

Please email Martin on martincain@talktalk.net if you can help make this a great day.

Thanks for your help.

Just to confirm that the turnout to the SGM yesterday was good and that there was a healthy discussion around the various aspects of the 2 options under review. When put to the vote there was unanimous support (including proxy votes) for moving the club from an Unincorporated Association to a Company Limited by Guarantee.

The Committee will now work towards achieving this with the appropriate comms sent out when we can. The idea is that the club rules will be folded into the company’s articles of association so there are no major changes planned. We are hoping to get things lined up in time for final ratification at the AGM but that might be optimistic, we shall see…

This Thursdays TT League event will be held at Teddington Village Hall and we will race around the K39/8 Circuit.

The weather looks good and thankfully Graham Steer has offered to ‘Push Off’ competitors as well as compete, so this event can now proceed.

All Helper details are on this website under the ‘Courses’ Tab.

Sign on from 18:00 hrs – 18:45 hrs.  There will be complementary Tea / coffee available.

The start will be from 19:01 hrs from the Orchard Industrial Estate access road (East side) onto the B4077.

Results will be at the Teddington Village Hall.
