As per the note in the latest newsletter, we are pleased to announce that we will be doing another velodrome evening at Newport, which will be organised by Simon Tarrant.  The date in the diary is Tuesday 2nd October 20:00-22:00 and the event will follow the usual format of a fully qualified BC coach taking an exclusive club session at the Velodrome.  Road bikes are not allowed but there are track bikes for hire for a very reasonable fee.  The cost of the event itself will be ZERO, but we do expect participants to pick up all other costs such as travel, bike hire, etc.  There are often lifts on offer and a lot of helpful advice, so don’t be afraid to shout out if you need some help.  If you have not done track riding before or just fancy another go at it, then give yourself a treat and don’t forget just how much Simon likes to be beaten so please do your best to keep him happy…

Please drop Robin or Simon a line so that we can form an interest group. The event will be capped at 20 riders so don’t hang about!

C&CCC is organising what will be the third round of this season’s Western Cyclocross League in Pittville Park on Sunday September 23rd. It would be great to see a good turn out of riders from the club. It’s not essential to have a cyclocross bike – anything from a gravel bike to a mountain bike, or even a Brompton will do!

As ever we need volunteers to help marshal the races and run the even sign-on. For this event we also need a first aider. If you can help, please get in touch with Rob via the contact page.

Please note that the latest club newsletter containing a roundup of all the current news and events has been sent out and should now be in the email Inbox which members have setup on the British Cycling portal.  The PDF version should help to remove any local formatting issues so that people can read the document on the device of their choice.

In addition to the usual Saturday morning rides, on August 25th there will also be a cyclocross ride with a cafe stop at Prinknash. The route will be either https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28291924?privacy_code=QFojsG1thr0NSxEn or https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28292293?privacy_code=ltBTMKLZdUwUXbjX . The route has been chosen to be suitable for CX bikes, but MTBs or gravel bikes are welcome too.
