Tumby’s Road Race 2016

25 Jun
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.

Nocturnal teacake – 17th June 2016

13 Jun
June 13, 2016

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. There was talk of calling in at The Barrel for a pint but we’ll see how we’re going for time after the drinking chalice challenge around the Eyam stocks. The Norfolk Arms has been booked as usual and I’m going to do my best to get the triangle sandwiches back on silver platters but can’t promise.

MEET AT THE TEACAKE MEET, Bents Road AT 7PM

Remember to bring your lights and plenty of beer vouchers.

RSVP via e-mail to brendon@rutland.cc so I can give the pub an idea of how many to expect.

From the South up…….Brendon on tour.

As well as Justin travelling the world again we have Brendon Tyree currently on a 3 month trip which is taking him from the southern Antarctic tip of South America to the Caribbean coast of Cartagena in northern Columbia.
The route is about 6000 miles and he’s got until the 11th March to do it as a flight is booked for his return back to the UK.
You can keep up with him via his website as and when he can update it…

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.

Rutland Hall

02 Dec
December 2, 2015

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.

Annual Dinner 2015

25 Oct
October 25, 2015

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

Obituary – Jim Hall

04 Aug
August 4, 2015

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 2015) 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.

RIP Jim

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 Nocturnal Teacake – 19th June 2015

09 Jun
June 9, 2015

 

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 brendon@rutland.cc so I can pre order your food and Rum!
