The First year of the Blackmore Vale Cycling Club has been most successful: we provided regular Saturday and Sunday Rides, regular Tuesday coffee meetings, as well as fortnightly Wednesday informal rides to South Cadbury.
We have enjoyed hospitality at member’s homes, visited Leominster for our holiday, played skittles in November and shared a sociable lunch in January.
Many members meet up at other times and we all enjoy the friendship the Club gives us.
We have to thank our brilliant Ride Organiser Charlie – who is the heart of the Club – the reason why we are all able to cycle together. Charlie has been so encouraging to new leaders and consistently reliable supporting the rides.
Our thanks to Mary, who keeps us all in touch through Cycleclips and provides a photographic record of our activities. Thank you to Dave who makes it possible for the Club to be recognised through the Website and to attract new members to join us.
We need to keep fresh ideas coming to the Club to build on the success we are having so new members for the Committee are always welcome. We had one Committee meeting during the year so it is not an onerous responsibility.
Some of the existing Committee have been in place for 3 years so would be glad to pass on their role or at least be shadowed……offers welcome.
We look forward now to another year of Cycling in the Blackmore Vale and hopefully another holiday cycling further afield.
Thank you to all the members who make up the Club – long may it continue!
