December 3, 2016

Yes it’s that time of year again, time to get your thinking heads on for a fancy dress outfit because of course it is compulsory.
Laura at the Cheshire Cheese in Hope will again be our host for the day and also the fancy dress judge.
We will meet at the tea-cake meet at 11am with a steady ride out to Hathersage for a pre-dinner pint and then onto Hope where dinner will be served at 1:30pm
Let us know via email, Facebook, Twitter, text or the good old telephone if you’re coming. Price will probably be much the same as last year, £18 – £20 payable on the day in cash.

Obituary – Glynn Singleton

September 28, 2016

I received a phone call this evening with some very sad news from Keith Parker informing me that his brother in law Glynn Singleton passed away at home yesterday (27 Sept.2016)
Glynn turned this year 70 and had recently had a few health issues. There will be a post mortem tomorrow so I do not know any other details at this time.
This news has come as a complete shock to me.
I knew Glynn very well as we rode many events together when he came into the sport in the early 1990’s.
Our thoughts go out to the family especially his wife Barbara and their children James and Fay.

I recceived a phone call last night informing me that Stuart (Joe) Thomspson passed away on the 24th June 2016.
Joe was in his late 80’s and riding for the Rutland CC was the National 24 Hour Champion way back in 1954 and was also part of the Club’s winning team in that event from 1955 – 1958.

The only details I have of Joe’s funeral are that it is in Ollerton on Monday 25th July at 2pm and then afterwards at the Lion Hotel in Worksop.

Obituary – Chris Faulkner (Max)

July 3, 2016

Some of you may have already heard over the weekend that one of our older members Chris Faulkner (aka Max) passed away suddenly on Thursday (30 June 2016).

Chris was a member of the Club during the late 70’s through to the 1990’s and worked at Tony Butterworths on Catchbar Lane. A change of job and location meant we didn’t see him for a few years as he relocated down on the South Coast but he then reappeared when he took over Tony’s shop and business when Tony retired.

Chris’s funeral will be on Wednesday 20th July, 2pm at St Mark’s Church Grenoside and then at the Grenoside Crematorium.
Refreshments and the wake will be in the Grenoside Church Hall, to which all are invited.

June 25, 2016

Sunday 24th July is the date for your diaries and is a day off from training and racing as it’s OUR turn to promote.

After last years problems hopefully this years will run smoothly and Steve Ellis is again organising the event on behalf of the Club but he needs OUR help.

The event will be held on the Braitwell circuit near Rotherham, a 10am start with the event being 65 miles.

Steve still has the list of helpers from last year and is hoping that those people will all be able to help out this year, he needs 5 cars/drivers and they have to be BC members and a minimum of 20 marshals.

If you can help then PLEASE get in touch with Steve on our Facebook page or direct via mobile / email.

January 2016 Club meeting with Pie and Peas…

29 Dec
December 29, 2015

Hi everyone,
Hope you’ve all had a good Christmas.
This Friday should be the Club meeting but seeing as it falls on New Year’s Day we’ve moved it back a week to Friday 8th and it will be held at the Lees Hall Golf Club.
As well as the meeting we’ll be tucking into a Pie and Pea supper at the same time so if you want a meal then please let me know ASAP so that I can give the Golf Club some idea of how many of us to cater for.
If anyone is interested in going for a steady ride or a level 4 intensive threshold training session before the meeting then maybe get in touch via Facebook.
From February onwards we will be back at our old meeting place at the University Arms on Brook Hill (S3 7HG). The Annual General Meeting (5th February) will be held in the larger upstairs room and then from March our meetings will be in the smaller darts room opposite the old Palin Suite.

The charity ‘In2change’ contacted the Club this week, they are the current owners of Rutland Hall, the birthplace of the Rutland Cycling Club way back in 1908.
On Friday and Saturday of this week (4th-5th December) ‘In2change’ are putting on a photographic exhibition detailing the history of the Hall, with pictures from 1906 onwards. This will include a picture of the Rutland Cycling Club from around that time.
The whole event is to try and raise funds and awareness for the charity to help them with renovation costs. For anyone who is interested in visiting the Hall then you are more than welcome to do so between 10am and 3pm on Friday or Saturday.
