Describe a typical club run, and where and when does the club meet
We meet at 9.30am at Streatley/A6, top of the Barton Cutting roundabout. We usually ride into the prevailing wind to a café for about 25 or 30 miles, have a cup of coffee and a chat and then ride home, taking in a different route where possible (and a pub if the weather is suitable).
What?s the story behind the club?s jersey design?
The club has a long tradition of riding and racing in blue. This latest summer version of the design incorporates that while giving maximum exposure to our main sponsors, Bandon and Eddingtons.
