Yes it’s that time of the year again…..
Sunday 20th December is the date for your diaries, 1pm at the Cheshire Cheese in Hope for the Club’s fancy dress dinner. Price will be roughly the same as last year £16 – £17 payable on the day.
Let Brendon, Danny or Simon that you’re coming and start getting your outfit ready, NO excuses for not getting dressed up !
Yes it’s that time of the year again…..
Roll up roll up guys, it’s that time of year again when you hang up the carbon wheels and dust off the crushed velvet suit and bow tie to see which of your names will be engraved alongside one hundred and ten years of cycling club history on our gleaming solid silver trophies.
This year for the small ticket price of £16.00, you will enjoy a beautiful three course meal, free entry into our club raffle, pleasurable viewing of the prize presentation and photo review of the year and if that wasn’t enough… This year paying homage to Jim Hall’s style of annual doo’s we’ve hired a traditional discoteque who will be spinning stong 70’s vibes until midnight.
If that wasn’t enough, the club will be putting on a free party bus heading into the city centre for anyone wanting to carry on grooving or just save some money on a taxi if your over that end of town.
Payment wise you can give cash to myself, Danny, Simon, Nick, Rob Fowler or use our handy Paypal option below.
Cash on the night is a possibility but not preferable as we’ll no doubt end up down the casino and throwing it all on red.
Finally dress code wise, this is our annual dinner so lets see some cooler looking cats this year like in the artwork above =)
Look forward to seeing you all there, Cheers Brendon
Following on from last months cancellation of Tumby’s Road Race and the ongoing problems regarding road racing in South Yorkshire, Minty’s Road Race that was scheduled for this Sunday (6th Sept) has also been cancelled.
POLICE HAVE AT THE ELEVENTH HOUR CANCELLED TUMBY’S ROAD RACE WHICH WAS DUE TO TAKE PLACE THIS SUNDAY, 9TH AUGUST!!!
No specific reason has been given but it seems they are saying the course is unsuitable and overused which possibly points to complaints from local residents.
More details as and when will follow.
It is with great sadness that I have to inform you all that Jim Hall has passed away. Jim had been battling with lymphoma for a number of years now but after a three week spell in the Rotherham General Hospital he sadly lost his battle and died peacefully last night (3 August) at around 6pm.
2015 has not been a good year for the Club as we have now lost four of our very dear friends.
Our thoughts at this time are with his wife Kate, his three sons Gavin, Devlin and Nathan and the rest of the family.
Jim’s funeral will take place on Wednesday 19th August, 2:30pm at the Hutcliffe Wood Crematorium and then afterwards at The Abbeydale Sports Club.
The Summer Solstice is just around the corner which means it’s the time of year when we head out into our beloved Peak District by night to sample the sights, smells and long shadows cast by the almost midnight sun. This year we’ll be meeting an hour earlier to get the full golden glow down Abney with the warm feeling of a few rums inside our bodies. The Club will supply (and carry out) the Sailor Jerry’s and Havana club so all you need to bring is your own drinking glass and smokes. The Norfolk Arms has been booked as usual and I’m doing my best to get the triangle sandwiches back on silver platters but can’t promise. See you at 8 (ish).
RSVP via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org so I can pre order your food and Rum!
Last months new venue was awesome so we’re going to make it a regular Rutland hangout, meaning the next one is on Friday 5th June. So see you at the couch guys, 8.00pm! Any questions just contact me on Brendon@rutland.cc
Most of you will have heard the latest news as I posted it on our Facebook page but for those of you that didn’t, Geoff Hague emailed to let me know that only 11 weeks after losing her husband Gordon, Barbara Scott passed away on Tuesday afternoon (26th May). She had a brain tumour which spread to her spinal cord; she then developed pneumonia from which she passed away.
Our thoughts go out to their daughters Linsey and Gillian. If anybody wants Barbara’s home adddress to send a card then please email me at email@example.com.
Barbaras funeral will be held at the Hutcliffe Wood crematorium, 11:30 on Tuesday 9th June and afterwards at the Double Tree Hotel, Meadowhead, S8 8BW.
I received an email yesterday informing me that George Steers had a fall at home and was admitted to the Northern General Hospital with a broken femur and developed pneumonia. George was conscious but he couldn’t talk and was having great difficulty breathing,
Sadly he passed away today (Wednesday 29th April).
There will be no funeral arrangements until after the 9th May as Georges cousin Mike is on holiday until then and he will be making the arrangements.
Any further updates will be posted on here and our Facebook page / Rutland Cycling Club (Sheffield)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing today (10th March) of one of our most hardworking Club members Gordon Scott.

Gordon’s funeral will take place on Friday 27th March, 11:30am at Hutcliffe Wood Crematorium and afterwards at the Sheffield Moat House on Chesterfield Road South (S8 8BW).
