I am arranging a social evening for Monday 7th May. Format will include a meal (probably chilli, lasagne, or salad) and the opportunity to have your photograph taken for a swipe card so that you can access the club house in future without having to buzz and ask politely. I know this is a bank holiday, it is also the day after the Isle of Wight Randonee which hopefully some of you will be attending (see thread under Sportives - this will replace the usual Sunday club ride as we can't be in two places at once).
I anticipate the meal costing £5, if you would like your photograph taken for a swipe card this would normally cost £10 however the club will subsidise it to £5 - so that the evening will cost you just £10, plus drinks, and you can then enjoy the club room on a Monday, Saturday or Sunday evenings for as long as you are a member. Friends, family and prospective members welcome!
For anyone also requiring membership - if you are renewing it is £20 for the year, for those joining for the first time as we are now in April the pro-rata fee is £15 which covers you until the end of the year. For this bargain price you get access to membership of one of the oldest cycling clubs in the UK where we offer a weekly organised club ride (and there may well be more over the Summer), time trials, expertise and banter - with several of us also involved in road and circuit racing we can also help get you started there and provide a team mate in le peleton.
I will need to confirm numbers for catering by Friday 20th April so I will post the definitive menu options here as soon as I have them. In the meantime if you want to register your interest or even go so far as to confirm you will be attending please post a message below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your details.
More to follow VERY soon - your social secretary - Jerry
