There has been further delays for the pending roadworks on the B4077, by Toddington roundabout.

Due to this delay, we can now run our normal 10 mile TT event on the U706 Course. The original programmed 25 mile event has been cancelled, due to lack of helpers to Marshal.

However, I still need a Marshal please to push off.  That Marshal can be a competitor, so please contact me ASAP so I can put you on the helpers programme.

As normal I will drive the course on Thursday and confirm by 2 pm, if there are any changes.

Happy racing!

Last Sunday (15th July) saw another good turnout from C&CCC for the Pied Piper Sportive, starting from the Kingsholm stadium in Gloucester.  The event (organised by our very own Owen ‘Bagman’ Watkins) was run in very hot conditions, although the lure of an ice cold can of cider at the finish kept the pace nice and brisk for many!  All in all, a great thing for the club to be part of, with the main objective being to raise money for a very worthy local charity, The Pied Piper Appeal.  See who you recognise, no points for spotting our President who was helping with the admin (following a late surge in entries).

Dear Club Members

I’m looking at getting a new Skinsuit in club colour’s and want to gauge interest for a group club order. Nopinz seems the obvious choice as they have our current design on file with many different stiles for enhanced performance, and they may offer some discount if we get 10+ orders. There is a chance the club may also contribute as well.

If you are interested (not a commitment as the detail hasn’t been worked out with Nopinz or the Club) please drop a mail to ‘’ with the skinsuit type, size, list price and numbers you would be interested in. I’m aiming for 11th August as a last day for expressions of interest so I can collate details for the club committee meeting on the 15th August. I’ll be aiming to contact everyone mid-late August with details of any combined offer/discount we can put together and the process for paying Nopinz should you want to proceed.

I provide a link below to the Nopinz general information page:

Our next TT event on the 19th July will be an Inter-Club event with Winchcombe Cycle Club on the K39 / 16, Bredon Hill Circuit.

C&CCC will be hosting this event and WCC will provide the helpers and signage.  Please could C&CCC club members support this event, as every finish time helps.

We will be meeting at Elmley Castle with sign on from 18:00 hrs to 18:45 hrs.

Please remember that this competition is open to all riders from different clubs and the Inter-club results will just be abstracted from the overall competition results, which will run as normal.

I provide below a course map, course description and Risk Assessment Approved by Midland DC:

It’s just over a week until C&CCC are hosting a cyclocross race in Pittville Park on Wednesday 4th July. We still need volunteers to run the event sign-on and marshal the race – if you can spare an hour or two, please let Rob Haynes know via the contact page.
