We are now working on the Autumn runs list for September-November. We are aiming to finalise the list by August 14th, so leaders new and old need to act now to avoid disappointment!

If you’re a CTC member and would like to lead a ride, please contact the ride co-ordinators and let them know. They may be able to suggest a suitable ride if you’re stuck for ideas or otherwise have a look at previous runs lists (link below). Or try something different, perhaps a ride that you like or have been wanting to do.

Ride co-ordinators:

* On-road: Simon Bird

* Off-road: Ian Doyle

Have a look at the draft programme and see where it would fit in with other rides as they are entered.

The full draft programme and any gaps can be viewed:  here

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.
