An SGM has been arranged for 7.30pm on Wednesday 18th April at the Exmouth Arms in the Bath Road.  The meeting will discuss and vote on the TWO options for the club’s legal status, as  selected by the Committee after careful review:

  • Current status, which is ‘Unincorporated Association’.
  • Company Limited by Guarantee (CLBG).

More details have been sent out via email to club members.  Please join us for this important meeting, which shouldn’t take more than an hour although we do have some contingency.  There will be a discussion on the two options (current status and a move to CLBG) and then a public vote taken after tellers have been appointed.   Only current club members will be eligible to vote.


Following recent extreme weather conditions the club decided that, on certain occasions, it would not be appropriate for us to continue with club rides where there were real concerns about rider safety.  We were hoping not to invoke this ruling for some time but the “The mini-beast from the east” has forced us to act.  Hence, we are really sorry but the forecast for the weekend (with the associated warnings in place) means that we consider the conditions to be too dangerous to organise formal club rides on Saturday (17th) and Sunday (18th).  Obviously, those people who fancy a ride and consider the conditions safe to do so may meet up at the usual time/place and head off for a ride but any rides will not be recognised as those organised by C&CCC.

We are now 4 weeks away from the start of the new TT series and therefore, please could members and competitors look at the TT calendar and advise me when they can help.  I will then add your name to the calendar and all you need to do is review the helpers guide on the TT page and contact me, if you have any queries.

Please be aware that this is a team effort and a lot of work has already gone in to make this years League TT events happen, and we need helpers to Marshal the courses correctly.

For the clubs regular 10 mile U706 course, we require TWO helpers, one for the roundabout and the other for Pushing Off.

Thank you in advance for your assistance and support.

I have today (12th March) been in dialogue with the site manager for Newland Homes who are building the new housing estate off the B4077, near to the Toddington roundabout.

He has advised me that they are behind on completing their show home (likely to now be mid June) and they have experienced  major delays in obtaining the approvals necessary for the alterations intended to be made to the carriageway on the B4077 which we use for our normal TT courses.  These works involve a new bus stop, the forming of 4 new estate access roads, new pedestrian paths and usual utility works.  These works will be carried out during the clubs TT season, and traffic management procedures will be in place at the time, depending on the nature of the works, which could simply be some bollards or traffic lights with the latter directly affecting the running of our TT event!

The site manager will give me as much notice as possible, on when these phased works will commence and finish, so I have the opportunity to change course (s)!

After consideration, I therefore, propose that we will use the original 10 mile U706 course and 25 mile U703B courses for whenever it is available to us, and when not we either switch to the new U715 course or we try and do some more Inter-Club TT events.  If we arrange with GCC then it will likely be on a Wednesday evening on their Gloucester circuits.

As it stands at the moment if we revert to our new U715 course then the start will likely be from 19:30 hrs (yet be confirmed, subject to more traffic counts on the A46) with sign on at Dumbleton Village Hall from 18:15 hrs.

I will update the League programme this week, but I wanted competitors to be aware of this current situation.

I am pleased to see the weather is expected to be reasonable tomorrow with a slight NE wind.

Our 1st club TT event will therefore, run as planned and we wish to thank our Time Keepers Martin McGreary and Doug Gale for attending this event.

Could all intended competitors please ensure they have read and understood everything provided in the post below.

See you all tomorrow and lets see what sort of times we will be recording for this first event on the new U715 Course.
