It’s that time of year again… The racing season is upon us and it won’t be long before we change the clocks and can go riding
on balmy summer evenings. But before that we have the:
2018 Annual General Meeting & Cycling Filmshow
To be held on Monday 26th February (7.30-8.30pm approx)
at Peterbortough & District Bowls Club
19 Burton Street, Peterborough PE1 5HA
There will be a licenced bar and some refreshments. The plan is to rattle through the meeting and show a cycling film:
Mark Cavendish Born to Race.
A revealing documentary offering a unique insight into the 2011 Road World Champion, Tour de France Green Jersey winner and Sports Personality of the Year. Covering both his public and private lives throughout this pivotal season, it also documents his early years, before building up to and looking back at the biggest event in world sport, the 2012 London Olympics. Includes unique access to his training, media days and rest and relaxation at home.
This unique documentary includes numerous Interviews with leading cycling figures including; British Cycling Head Coach Dave Brailsford, Rod Ellingworth, Bradley Wiggins, Peta Todd and many more.
I know many find the meeting somewhat boring, but is important for the smooth running of the club. Whilst we have a few hardworking
officers and committee members, we would welcome some new blood to help with the organisation of the club. It would be great if we could find someone to take on the role of Social Secretary, to co-ordinate and organise a few social events. Adam Robinson is standing down as Clothing Secretary, so we need someone to look after that job and if anyone out there has good web skills, we could do with a replacement for James Warrener, the club’s Webmaster. Even a couple of people to stand as Committee Members, would be useful.
We have five or six meetings a year, usually on a Monday night in the Bluebell in Maxey. Please let me know if you would be interested in helping with the club organisation.
Please find attached the Meeting Notice and provisional agenda.
Hi to all
We start the weekend on Friday evening with a family ride from outside the Athletics Track at 18:30 for an approx. 7 mile loop through Stanground and along the river as far as Millennium bridge. You'll need lights and ideally bright clothing, the route is quite possible on road tyres, but its a bit rough in places so you might prefer knobbly tyres if you have the choice. Should be finished around 19:30 with parents very welcome.
On Saturday morning there is the fourth round of the Muddy Monsters series of races, and as this one is from Thorpe Hall in Peterborough there will hopefully be a good turnout. Be there to register by around 09:30 for a 10:00 start, and it will be all finished by 12:00.
Enjoy your cycling
