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’!

Club Secretary

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.

The clubs annual general meeting will be held at the Exmouth Arms (GL53 7LX) from 19:30 hrs to approx. 22:00 hrs.

Please could members try and make an effort to attend this annual meeting as it covers the final process involved in transferring the club to a ‘Company’ legal status, and the drinks at the bar are good also!

Please note the new company is non profit making and is intended to operate in line with the current club.

There are 7 Resolutions for members to vote on at the meeting or by Proxy vote. For those who cannot attend the meeting but wish to vote, they can use an email vote (officially called a Postal Vote!), so just email Gary (Club Secretary) direct or via the clubs ‘Contact’ web page, with your consent or objection against each of the 7 resolutions. These must be received no later than 48 hours before the AGM.
