2014 Club events, competitions and socials
We've got a varied selection of events this year - from short hill climbs to reliability trials with lots of racing in between.
Stick the dates in your diary and plan your year of cycling! We urge members to support the events and try to enter and volunteer where possible.
There's also a spread of National Clarion (NC) events to enter too. They're a great opportunity to take part in historic championships, whether you're there for the atmosphere or challenging for a podium place. Each of the trophies has a story to tell, with winners dating back to the 1930's in some cases.
The 119th Easter Meet in Beverly will be a highlight with members from sections accross the UK meeting up at our annual party.

We meet up on the 1st monday of every month. Come along and chat about the weekend's riding, swap dvds and books and plan your next big event.
