To coincide with the Rapha Women’s 100 event, there will be a ladies only ride out to Berkeley on Sunday the 26th July, lead by Aileen Brown and Julia Adamson. This will be ideal for those who have yet to join the Sunday club run, as it will be a mostly flat ride with glorious views of the Severn, and only a few small rises to overcome. This ride also celebrates the fact that we now have over 50 female members of the club, so please join in and make this a great event.
It’s optional to sign up here: Women’s 100, but if you do you’ll get a lovely little woven badge to commemorate your achievement.
Spread the word, and let’s get as many of the ladies out riding together!
Usual meeting point by Cleveland Bridge at 0830.
38 riders competed at the Bath CC Club championship that was held on 18th June at a sunny Odd down circuit. Simon Ker won the Mens Race, Liz Matthews triumphed in the ladies and Charlie Shields took home the youth cup. Phil Swinden doubled up by wining the non racers race and then straight away became a racer and competed in the mens club championship.
Bath Cycling Club took on Velothon Wales and came out winners.
