Round 10 of Western Cyclocross Leagye, which is being held by C&CCC at Chedworth on November 25th, is under two weeks away now. As usual it would be great to see a good turn out of club riders – see for more details.

We could still use a few more volunteers to help run the event on the day and to help set the course up on Saturday afternoon. If you can help please get in touch with Gordon via the contact page.

A reminder that it’s the club’s AGM this Wednesday evening – 7:30 at the Exmouth Arms.  See for full details

Please note that the 2018 AGM will be held on Wednesday 14th November at the Exmouth Arms, Bath Road, Cheltenham.  The AGM gives everyone the chance to come along to give feedback on the club, as well as help to shape the next year.  As per usual, all elected positions are available to any member (in line with the club rules), with selection via a majority vote.  The AGM is due to start at 7:30pm, with doors open a little earlier.  The venue is upstairs in the meeting room at the back of the pub.  The agenda is available here.  Additional items may also be raised but please note that all items should ideally be raised in advance to either the Club Secretary (Gary) or Chairman (Robin) via the contact pages if required.  Items may also be raised on the day, but those deemed to require further consideration will be deferred for an offline review at a later date.  The meetings usually conclude some time around 9pm.  We are discussing arrangements for proxy voting, should members request that. Similar to previous years, a minor revision of the Club Rules has been proposed so those details will distributed to members’ email accounts using the British Cycling club management tool.

It’s the Cheltenham half marathon this Sunday and the road closures mean that the Pump Rooms will be difficult to access.

For this Sunday only, the “Intermediate” ride will start from the Ellenborough Park layby and the “Sportive” ride will start from the the Meadow Cafe, Cox’s Meadow. The start time remains 8:30.

On this coming Sunday, 16th September 2018, Ian To is attempting to break the Land’s End to John O’Groats and Doug Gale is the official RRA timekeeper and observer for the attempt.

Ian will depart Land’s End at 05.00 and is due locally in the following places for those who’d like to offer their support:

  • 15:35: A38 out of Gloucester
  • 16:03 Tewkesbury
  • 16:06 Mythe hill
