This years Xmas bash and trophy award evening will be held on Monday 16th December between 7pm and 10 pm, at the Cheltenham Motor Club (GL52 6SA).

We have arranged a free buffet for club members and we will be recognising members achievements and contributions to the club, during 2019. Some of these trophies awarded will also be for the recipient to keep.

So come on, put this date in your diary and come and have a laugh, meet some more club members and recognise the achievements made this year.

Club Secretary

On behalf of the clubs elected Officers, we wish to welcome the following new members to the Committee, and welcome their support and assistance for the new 2019 / 20 term:

  • Tony Payne – Road Captain
  • Simon Boswell – Route Meister (assist the road captain)
  • Steve Smith – Without Portfolio
  • Simon Boswell – Webmaster

This AGM was also very important for the club, as the remaining 7 Resolutions were Passed by the attending members to now complete the process of changing the legal status of the club from a ‘Non Incorporated Entity’ to an ‘Incorporated Entity’, and will be called Cheltenham & County Cycling Club Limited (Limited by Guarantee).  This transition will now commence and the current club will be dissolved by the 31st January 2020. However, the club members have allowed the new company to use its name for general day to day activities.

This is a major milestone in this clubs history and I would like to thank everyone involved in making this process happen and for the club members trusting us to ‘Get the job done’!

Due to continued flooding at Haw Bridge we have taken the decision to change Saturday’s routes. Our routes will instead take us to Hailes: via Ashton (40 miles) or via Wormington (30 miles). Route details can be found below, or in the links on the right hand side.

We are not expecting any more heavy rain, so we currently think that all roads will be passable on Saturday. However, please bear in mind that we will be riding in winter conditions so the road surface may be wet / dirty at times. Mudguards – and lights – are strongly advised.


All Club Members are invited to join us on Tuesday 26th November at the Exmouth Arms (GL53 7LX) from 7pm for a bespoke talk on Strength Training & Nutrition talk by Tommy Rutter & Jenny Powell. This is free, for club members.

This is a unique session aimed at all club members regardless of age, gender, experience or ability. They will guide us on improvements, both on and off the bike, based on proven theory and the practical experience of two approachable professionals who are also club members. They will happily answer questions.

Jenny holds a BSc in Exercise Science and a MSc in Sports Nutrition. She has been racing for 6 years and has a UCI team contract for 2020
Tommy was a professional footballer for 9 years, has 14 years experience as a Strength & Conditioning Coach and holds an MSc in Kinesiology Exercise Science. He has raced competitively for 6 years winning Criterium and Road races.
This has been advertised on the clubs Facebook page as an event. If you are not on Facebook, please just message Bill Olver (Membership Secretary) so he is aware of your attendance and he can monitor likely numbers attending this event.
