Escot Cyclocross 2014
The club organised and ran the Escot cyclo cross event near Ottery St Mary for the second year running on the 19th October, the 5th round of the South West cyclo cross league. After a small group of volunteers had set up the course on Saturday afternoon, sunny and mild conditions greeted the riders on the sunday after a week of heavy rain.

Introductory Rides go Fortnightly
Due to the huge success and enthusiasm behind these rides - we have stepped up and put them on bi-weekly. The next ride will be on 10th November 9am Odeon. Spread the word it's a great way to get started with group riding and see what the clubs all about.
Sunday Club Ride Changes
We are now operating with a maximum group size of 20 riders due to popularity. If more riders turn out we will split the groups into mixed ability groups a few minutes apart so please listen to your ride leaders before setting off as they may ask you to depart in a particular group.
The club is now offering two sunday rides - while there is demand, we are operating a faster paced ride in addition to the standard Sunday ride. The main differences with this group are:
- This group goes in front of the main club run as a faster paced steady race training ride for experienced riders.
- It has a lower level of rider support.
- It will follow (for at least the first 25miles) the published route. If riders find it unsuitable they can then drop back to the main run.
- An additional mileage may be added on towards the end.
If you need any Club kit, you can call Greg Rorke on 07794106357 and arrange payment/collection from the Bike Shed. Hoodies are also available from web-engineer's offices in the town centre - call 01392 253304 to arrange collection/payment.
Club Subs are due
Please remember to pay your club subs - you cannot race this season if your subs are unpaid - so don't forget - it's only £12 and you can do it online here
