Club News

Just a reminder that this coming weekend (26th May) the CFC Sportive takes place starting at Stratford Racecourse.  This event replaces the Sunday Club ride in our events calendar and this is usually one of the best supported local sportives.  There are four distances so there is sure to be something to suit everyone so it would be great to see lots of club shirts there on Sunday.

Thursday 30th May will see the inaugral Ladies ride.  These rides will be held monthly through the summer to encourage ladies to get on their bikes and have a social ride and see what riding with a club is like. 

We had a really good representation at the Velo this year with at least 17 participants taking on the 100 mile challenge.  There were some very good times posted for the ride with 8 riders completing the course in under 6 hours which is hugely impressive.

The Club's first Strava week is nearly here with prizes to be won and to help you keep a check on progress through the week a Strava "widget" has been added to the website.

Results of first Strava Week

1. Greatest distance – Nick Hawtin, 200 miles
2. Longest ride – Dave Thomas, 76 miles
3. Most climbing – Martin Bemrose, 8,763’
4. Most achievements – Alison Speechly, 59

As you will have read in the various Monday mumblings there has been a new Cafe and Lunch stop option on the website for a few weeks now.  We have received no additional cafe stops to add to the list so we will switch this page to be the live version and close down the old page.  Photos and feedback on the current sites are still very welcome as are suggestions for new ones (I'll be adding Toddington Railway station).
