2017 already and the club is into its third year of existence and getting stronger and stronger with over 50 active members.
In 2016 members completed over 25,000 miles on club rides alone and over 110,000 miles in total through the year, including participation in a number of national organised sportives such as Ride London and the Velothon Wales and local events such as the BHF Cotswold ride and the Cotswold Spring Classic.
The inaugural club tour to Majorca took place in 2016 and will be repeated in March 2017 with 19 members off to Majorca again.
Club rides continue on Sunday mornings all year with Wednesday evening rides taking place through the summer months, equally as successful has been the ‘Members Ride’ functionality on the website which enables members to link up online to arrange ad-hoc rides.
Through the above approach, we are proud to have created a real cycling community in the Woodmancote and Bishops Cleeve area promoting road cycling as a social activity.
In 2017 we expect to continue to grow and further promote road cycling in the local area and will also be looking at how/if we can involve off-road cycling and help to promote cycling to a younger audience as well.
Thanks to all members for their support of the club without you nothing would be achieved, and in particular thanks to the committee members who continue to drive the club forward.
Have a great 2017 – Chairman M
