2013 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 118th Easter Meet in Scarborough will be a highlight with members from sections accross the UK meeting up at our annual party.
