New Club Kit

Velo Club Norwich are pleased to release the new club kit design.The design has been developed in conjunction with Castelli. It is a smart, modern design that fits with our club identity and will fit in well with our existing older kit until it needs replacing. As mentioned last month the design will be the same for our road racers and our time trialist meaning the club will have one identity once again. Not having logos also means it will last longer which is also why we have decided to continue to go with Castelli. It’s not the cheapest but we feel the quality is right for us.

It will be available in the standard range of sizes, for both our male and female riders. Along with the new design we are also introducing the Perfetto jacket into our clothing range.

Tour of Norfolk

March 3rd and 4th saw the annual VCN Tour of Norfolk take to the roads. After what must have been one of the nicest weeks of the late winter the weather slowly deteriorated into the weekend with the forecast for Saturday predicting wind and rain; and more of both on the Sunday… So it was a somewhat apprehensive group that eventually set off from Fiveways pub for a meandering ride to the first lunch stop in Castle Acre. Rain did little to dampen spirits and a fire and good food at the Ostrich pub set the scene for the afternoon dash to Hunstanton. The evening out was somewhat different to planned as the restaurant we had booked had collapsed (physically, not financially) but the owner kindly ferried us to a fine alternative and this was almost certainly a contributory factor to the slow start on Sunday….that, and the rain… and the wind. So it was a thoroughly soaked group that arrived back on Sunday afternoon.

This was the first year we have run two groups with people able to choose their pace and switch between them on the two days. A successful trial and one we will use again next year.

Watch out for the full report in the Newsletter and keep a March weekend free for the cyclists vs weather rematch in 2013!
