We decide at the Club Meeting to have another Pie & Pea supper at the Millstone Inn at Hathersage so it’s booked for Friday 28th March. You will have all been to Mallorca so you’ll all be screaming fit so maybe we’ll meet earlier than normal and have a longer ride so we get to the pub desperate for some food. More details nearer the date but in the meantime let me know if you’re coming.
Details on this years North Midland Road Race League are now on the NMRRL page of this site.
Remember you’ll need to apply for a TLI licence if you’re racing but more importantly you’ll need to pay your Club Annual Subs which you can now do using PayPal, just go to our Membership page and enter your details.
Just in case you’d forgot, it’s the Club’s Annual General Meeting this Friday 7th February, 8pm at The Broomgrove Club, 74 Broomgrove Road, Sheffield, S10 2NA.
Come along have a drink and catch up with everyone and pay your Club subs at the same time. Club clothing will be on sale and we will be placing another clothing order sometime in February so if there is anything specific that you want please let us know.
Thinking of heading to Majorca for a training camp this year? Or maybe you off for a week with the family in the summer? Whatever your requirements, friend of Rutland CC and part time Majorca resident Phil Axe has started a cycle hire company in Porte Pollensa, Majorca.
If you want to rent a bike for a day or a month, www.mallorcabikehire.com is the only place you need to look !!!
These days with the amount it costs to transport your bike by plane and obviously the risks from damage that you face by trusting those baggage handlers, renting a bike instead makes a very compelling case. At Mallorcabikehire.com Phil has assembled a quality fleet of Pinarello’s and Planet Pro Carbons so you will be getting a quality ride not a clunker! The pricing is also very competitive, being cheaper for a quality bike than some are charging for a basic bike.
Who knows if you let him know that you are Rutland member you might even talk him into a discount…
I’m taking a bit of a punt here – the weather for Sunday is predicted to be s**t. Also I haven’t sat on a bike since Christmas day.
So – I’m proposing to push the January ride back a week to Sunday 12th. Depart from the wicker at 9:15 for a pleasant ride across the flatlands with the aim of hitting Ma Larkin’s again as we did last year.
If you can only negotiate one whole Sunday out per month then get yourself to the Wicker for the 12th and hopefully this sequence of North Atlantic cyclones we are having will have stopped.
If it isn’t chucking it down on the 5th I’ll be at the usual meeting place for a 9:15 depart, not looking good though.
If you are still reeling from too many mince pies you can meet us in Langold, probably sometime between 12:00 and 13:00
Thursday 19th December – Hilsborough college. If you fancy it get yourself over to facebook and stick yer name down.
Yes it’s that time of year so you need to start looking through your wardrobes for your fancy dress outfit. We’re back at the Cheshire Cheese in Hope this year for our Christmas dinner.
Usual meet at the ‘teacake’ at 11 o’clock and we’ll probably call in at the Little John in Hathersage for a swift half before riding onto Hope for our lunch.
Bit of a late post but we have a new venue for our monthly meetings.
We are now at the Broomgrove Club, 74 Broomgrove Road, S10 2NA.
It’s just off Ecclesall Road near the Fat Face shop and yes there is a bar.
There isn’t a car park but you’re ok to park on Broomgrove Road itself or Ecce Road for free at that time of night.
I should have put this up before now but only just realised the 1st Sunday of the month is actually next Sunday, 1st December. So, I suggest we go out East for a change. We can leave from the same place but veer off over towards Notts, probably through Coal Aston way. It is a bit dependent on the weather but it can’t be as bad as November. At the moment we have a stubborn anticyclone that the BBC are predicting is going to hang around until at least Thursday, pushing all the bad weather up over Norway. Fingers crossed it stays until the weekend.
Meet at the usual place (Bents Green) at the usual time (9:15 depart) then we head in the direction of the Urals.
