Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday Ride

Bruce will be leading this week’s Easter Sunday ride. Please comment by Saturday evening if you wish to join him…

“It looks like being a nice day on Sunday, so I am thinking of riding to Bigbury. Start at Coypool Road at 10.00 am, head out to Deep Lane. Backlanes to Westlake and then Ermington. Via Orcheton and Kingston to St Anne’s Chapel and then down to Bigbury. Return via Aveton Gifford and Wrangaton. Total about 40 miles and around 3700 ft of climb. Probably best to take your own lunch as it’s Easter Sunday and Bigbury is likely to be busy. Any takers. or has anyone a better idea? If more than 6 (including me) are interested, we will need to split the ride. If I don’t hear from anyone by Saturday evening I will ride from home.”

Club Update

Club Update

Club Membership Renewals – 01 January 2021

As notified to you during the first lockdown, the Committee are waiving membership fees for 2021.  As Club activities have been disrupted by COVID, members in 2020 will automatically have their membership renewed for an additional year for free.  If, however, you would like to pay a membership fee, please do so.

IMPORTANT: If your contact details have changed or more importantly, those of your emergency contact, please send any updates to Lou by Text, Messenger or Email

If you wish to cancel your membership, could you also please notify Lou.


We would normally be holding an AGM around now but obviously due to COVID restrictions this will not be happening.  We could hold an online meeting but with little activity this year, it just doesn’t seem worthwhile. 

The Club’s accounts have been audited (see earlier post).  The Club has a healthy bank account despite a small loss.  We are likely to have another small loss next year with not collecting membership fees and paying out subscriptions to British Cycling and Cycling Time Trials, however the Club’s accounts are healthy enough to see us through this.

If there are any issues or points you would like to have raised at the AGM, please email these by 12th December to for Lou, Mike and Hywel to review and feedback.

That’s about it for now.  We look forward to 2021 when hopefully we’ll kick COVID in the teeth and be able to cycle together in large groups, linger over a coffee and cake, hold social evenings and go on cycling holidays. 

Best wishes and stay safe,

Colin Hooper

Message from Colin Hooper

I’d like to thank all the members of the club who turned up for uncle Roger’s funeral last Friday.
The huge turn out just shows how much he was loved and respected by everyone who knew him.

Everyone I spoke to mentioned his funny stories and that’s what I’ll always remeber him for.
I’ve been meaning to put together a compilation of some of the best ones I remember and try to write them up and post them at the weekend.

Thank you all.
