This is not a dire warning of an impending undead invasion, but a reminder the clocks will be changing, the weather will be getting worse, and it’s time to be prepared.
For the Sunday club run, Saturday social rides and the Tuesday ride, riders are expected to have a rear mud guard fitted (clip on is fine) from when the clocks change in October until they turn again in March. Primarily, this is a a courtesy to your fellow riders and their kit. If you don’t have a mud guard, now is the time to think about getting one.
Bath Cycling Club is growing fast. We’re up to around 250 members, and with that comes the need for more volunteers to help lead club rides. You don’t have to be a bike mechanic and fix every puncture. You don’t need to have an encyclopedic knowledge of every highway, byway and lane. You do need to be able to confidently lead a group from A to B and back – either through memory, or with a handy GPS (Garmin for example) – or be willing to learn how to do so.
If you are interested then please contact our Club Captains, Luke David (ClubCaptain(at)bathcc.net) and Claire Phillips (ladiescaptain(at)bathcc.net). Your help would be appreciated.
This calender has been put together based on races that have already published their dates and last years caldender. Please refer to training planner for final dates.

Following the success of the club trip to Claviers in September 2012, a group of us are having a repeat visit from 15th-22nd September this year.
Claviers is in the Var region of SE France close to the Gorges du Verdon & Alpes Maratimes. It is an hours drive from Nice and is the French home of club member Howard Burton.
The trip is an opportunity for a week of rides guided by Howard & members of his local French Club.
Direct flights from Bristol to Nice (currently £256 return including bike). Howard looks after transfers. Accommodation is either B&B or self-catering. Aileen & David have rented a 2 bedroom apartment which they would be happy to share.
For further information about the trip, please contact Aileen on [email protected] or 0785 4149008
Welcome to the new Bath CC site. While functional, there are still a few things to do around the edges. In particular, we are still working on new forums, and a picture gallery. In the meantime, please explore the site and let us know what you think.
