The Western Cyclocross Summer League has just come to a close, with some noteable performances for club members:

  • Sam Smith and Henry Johnson took first and second in the under-16s.
  • Sally Reid was second in the women’s by a single point.
  • Gordon Smillie was third on the V50s.

Another thank you to everyone who helped run the two rounds in Pittville Park.

The autumn/winter leauge isn’t far off with the first round on September 3rd. C&CCC will be hosting on Sunday September 24th in Pittville Park and Sunday November 26th at Chedworth Farm Shop.

There is a more detailed briefing in your email inbox but here is a quick overview of the main news…

The event itself is being billed as a “Festival of Cycling”.  There will be a family fun area in Pittville Park with lots of different rides, a large TV screen and other stuff…and a series of cyclocross races for the under 16s run by the CTWYCC.

The club will be hosting a market stall in the Prom from mid-morning onwards…although it will be mysteriously closed around 3pm for 30 minutes ;-).  The idea is that we will use it as a focal/drop-off point for club members, have a turbo setup and perhaps a few items on as well as club related literature for anyone interested in joining.  There will also be a shared multi-club gazebo in Pittville.

VOLUNTEERS

This is an exciting opportunity for you to get involved in something that could create a cycling legacy for years to come so why not get involved as well as coming along to see the race?

Council Volunteers: Recruited through the weblink and expected to be general helpers (such as youngster shepherds, junction marshaling or perhaps signage assistants, etc).

Club Volunteers:  Guinea pigs for the turbo as well as stall assistants for both the Prom and Pittville.  Also, we need a graphic designer who will help us put together an A5 flyer to be given out.  Any event organisers out there who fancy owning the Market stall as a mini-project and making it happen?

Come on folks, get your hands up!  Expressions of ‘interest’ either directly to the council or ping Robin/Simon an email…

There was a great turnout from the club at the weekend in the Glos-based sportive in aid of Pied Piper, organised by none other than our own Mr Bagman!  The weather was lovely, the sausage rolls plentiful and the event raised a large amount of cash for a very worthwhile local charity.  See who you recognise in the piccie (yes, it is small but if you click on it in a browser then it should open up full screen)!!

A few photos from the half-way stop of Alex Hamilton’s 80-mile bike ride in early celebration of his soon to be 80th Birthday! There was a great turnout at The Huff Cap, Great Alne of friends from Cheltenham CTC, C&CCC and his family!
