Sunday Club Runs
A few more club runs have been added to the list, we are running a single club run tomorrow - the route being an adapted Bampton Lanes to suite viewing the Tom Hawkins. Please see the route here. Note - it's not the usual lane after Bampton but a slightly later one to avoid the dual carriageway and bring you out onto the A38 against the flow of the race. Also in the lane - please ride single file and pull to the side of the road if the race is coming past

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
