There are still a few places left for the organised trip to Peebles in May. Accommodation is from night of Friday 24th May to Monday night return on the Tuesday 28th May. Road or MTB options are available. We have the exclusive use of a bunkhouse. £125 gets you 4 nights self-catering. This trip offers top riding and an excellent social side (i.e. beers and curry). If you are interested or would like more details, contact Roger Smith at

The Committee are pleased to attach a Leaflet for a new series of coaching sessions, organised by our Sally Reid. These coaching sessions will be held at a venue in the Cheltenham Area and are initially intended for female riders, commencing on the 23rd April from 6.30 pm – 8.30 pm, over two 1 hour sessions. We hope that these coaching sessions will be well supported, and we congratulate Sally for her efforts to date, in organising these coaching sessions which the club, will help subsidize going forward:

I am pleased to advise that the forthcoming club TT League Series is due to commence on Thursday 11th April, with sign on from 18:00 hrs – 18:40 hrs at the Teddington Village Hall.  The course will be on our 8 mile K39 / 8 course.

I am doing all my organising but to make everything happen on the day, I need to start now receiving names of helpers willing to Marshal, so I can put them on the TT Rota found on the TT Programme.

Please therefore, email or text me so I can enter your names.  Full helpers details will be provided and it is all easy. Remember also that a rider in an event can also help ‘push off’ the riders to qualify, and they just start off last.

Fingers crossed for a popular and competitive TT Series.

Gary Rickards

TT Captain

Congratulations to Simon Boswell and Richard Preston as your names have been pulled out of the hat for the February Ride Leaders Draw, and you will shortly each receive a £20 gift voucher to spend at LeisureLakes in Cheltenham.

The Committee wish to thank you both for helping lead your rides and remember all you club riders to make sure your name is on the Ride Leaders Rota either before or straight after the event, should you decide to lead a ride on the day.

You need to be in it to win it!

Unfortunately due to the recent snowfall and low temperatures at night, we have reviewed our road rides planned for this weekend and reluctantly we have to cancel these rides.

However, the XC MTB ride is still on from the Pump Rooms at 9 am but with some minor changes to avoid potentially icy roads. If anyone wants a safer alternative to an icy road ride, this ride is suitable for cross, gravel and hardtail mountain bikes and will be led by our XC rocket, Mo.

So all is not lost, and do support our off road riders and still try and have some fun, though remember your thermals!
