• Hill Climbing - Hill climbs are a unique tradition at the end of the road cycling season. It’s a simple format with riders setting off at minute intervals in a flat-out attempt to get from bottom to top in as quick a time as possible.  The tough Mendip climb of Burrington combe was […]
  • Back - Yes, holidays over so updates are resuming – actually we have been back quite a while and have quietly been updating the coffee and cake pictures including rides to Mells, Farrington Guerney, Godney, Tour of North Somerset, Rocky Moutain and Wells… Club numbers have been steadily growing as have the […]
  • Holidays – Updates Return Next Month - A great excuse for (more) coffee and cake – just remember to take your bike with you
  • Not All About Sundays - Whilst the weekly club ride is on a Sunday morning, as you would expect members ride most days with a range of other activities and events: – Time trials, inc club TT on a Tuesday evening as well as those run by other clubs further afield;– Chaingang training rides on […]

  • Never Mind The Longest Day, This Was The Longest Ride - In keeping with the time of the year, today’s Captain’s Challenge ride was the 100 Mile Randonee, the longest of the club events, and for many the longest ride they will do in the year. After the false dawn of two sunny days, a group of riders gathered under the […]
  • Double Gates, Double Post - To make up for the absence of a post last week (work got in the way / was still drying out / overcome with excitement re the steam engine / forgot/…) then a double header this week. So last week saw a more ‘select’ (reduced anyway) group of riders head […]
  • No Dodgy Puns Please - As the three intermediate group riders waiting at the pick up point pondered the cooler weather conditions and darkening sky, they saw their number double by the arrival of the three Clevedon starters and they realised it was going to be a substantially reduced turnout and so the Fast and […]
