You know Easter is coming up when the camping catalogues start making their way into your letter box. Many of you will be taking the opportunity to get out of town over the Easter break, while still others will be training the house down in preparation for upcoming events.
Whatever you are doing this long weekend, enjoy some chocolate and stay safe on the roads!

1. The Club is currently finalising a sponsorship guideline document to be implemented along with the next year’s calendar. The intention is to attract sponsors and partners to support the different race series and/ or individual races, in a manner that will deliver benefits back to the members. Potential sponsors and partners should consider what services and benefits they would provide to members, and in return they would receive great exposure to a vibrant and active club membership.
2. Our provisional 2015/2016 calendar can be viewed here.
3. We are currently finalising the sourcing of new lighter, easy to store bike racks.
