is after Jamie’s time trial crown.
Winter trail riding is always fun too. On a nice day you

Let’s get the Club’s Mojo rocking early this year.
When you start training now it justifies that extra helping
of Christmas Cheer.
Let’s get the bikes rolling.
Don’t forget out club Awards night and AGM.
Please let Dave Singfeild know if you plan to attend. We need to know how many dinners to order.

It is dirty Thursday. 6pm at Beagle club. Im riding on a fat one tonight.
The “Pursuit” will take place between 10:30 and noon. Pre-registration is required so that our time keepers can apply an appropriate handicap. If you are racing, please arrive no later than 9:30AM to check in and warm up. The BBQ will follow immediately after the race. Leisure cycling is encouraged outside of Pursuit timings. Bring your family and ride one of the most scenic venues in Northumberland County.
