Club Rides

We are now regular having 2 groups riding on a Sunday morning which is great to see. The Development/ Club ride has a designated ride leader whilst the Middle group self manage who’s leading. If you would be willing to join the Ride Leader rota please either email chair@vcnorwich.co.uk or contact Adam Simmonds. Rides leave the Forum at 9.00am throughout the summer. If you plan to ride just log onto Facebook and tick the poll.
Club ride = 16 – 17mph
Middle Group = 17 – 18.5 mph
Fast Group = 19 ++
Wednesday evening rides have now started for the summer months . These rides are no drop rides and leave Cringleford Green at 18.30. Usually about 25-30 miles in distance.

Annual General Meeting

Our AGM was held on Monday 21st March 2022. Attendance was a little disappointing. A big thank you to those who did attend. The table below shows the officers elected into post. As you can see at the end of 2022/23 the Chair and the TT secretary are intending to stand down. Please let us know if you would be willing to join the committee and support with the running of the club . Without the dedication of members on the Committee the club cannot run.

South Norfolk Time Trial League

1st league race starts on Wednesday 18th May 2022. It’s a different course and HQ this year. Sign on is from 18.00 at Scoulton village hall. The course will run between Hingham and Watton . Entry is £5 , cash is preferred as the phone signal is poor for debit card payments.
Don’t forget front and rear lights are now mandatory under CTT rules
