Volunteers needed to pilot a tandem

This is one of our occasional calls for volunteers to pilot a tandem owned and maintained by Bob Bristow. For those who might not know him Bob is visually handicapped and we have over the years maintained a rota of volunteer pilots so Bob can participate regularly in club runs or other rides on mutually convenient dates.
Of late the rota has all but ceased to exist as people have become unavailable but Bob is keen as ever to get out on the bike. Anyone who thinks they might be interested in piloting for Bob please contact him on 01189582056 and he will gladly discuss a suitable date for a trial ride. No previous experience is necessary. Bob has cycled with a long list of different pilots and is well able to offer advice on the role.

Take a photo on your ride

Suggested New Years resolution for members. Cycle more (obviously!) and take a photo on each ride to add to the club’s Facebook page.

It could be a group photo of all the riders (check they are happy for photo to be posted on FB), a great view on the ride or the delicious cake you ate. Don’t forget to mention which ride you were on and how many were riding.

If you don’t do FB, send photo to and I will add it to FB. Just another way to publicise the club, gain new members and encourage more cycling.

Happy New Year
