CTC Coventry & CTC Rugby rides for the week beginning Sunday 18th August 2019

Notices:

  1. Preparations for the HSBC Event on 8th September are going well. However, we are looking for help with transport for a Watt Bike to be delivered to the stand at the beginning of the day and collected at the end. A transit type van, or a trailer would be suitable – if you are able to help please email Mike Thomas for full details.
  2. The proposed Kenilworth to Leamington Cycle Route is due to be presented to the County Council in September and will have a greater chance of success if a large number of people show their support.
  3. John Naughton is planning a fixed centre tour to Mallorca next spring for 10-days from 14th April based at The Pollensa Park Hotel in Puerto Pollenca. The arrangements are flexible and members may choose to join the tour for part, or all of the 10-day period. Please see our website for more details
