HCC Membership 2024
The basis on which membership is charged will change for 2024. This will be discussed at the Annual General Meeting on 8th December. Once the meeting has made its decisions, invites will go out to renew your membership for next year with a link to the payment options. If you wish to have a say on this, or indeed any other, issue affecting Hadleigh Cycling Club, please be at the AGM at the George on 8th December at 6:30pm.
Autumn Rides and Events 2023
Sundays: the Club's main social ride continues at 0900 (but sometimes earlier) each Sunday from The George Inn, High Street, Hadleigh. This ride is normally about 30 to 40 miles at a speed of approximately 15 mph, depending on the preferences of the ride leader and the capabilities of the group. Our rides are 'no-drop'. That means you won't be left behind (unless you choose to be), but the group may split into smaller groups of different speeds if that makes it easier to handle.
Please don't worry about what bike you ride, or being 'too slow'. We will always make sure you're not left behind and that you are supported - we want you to come back next time, and to get better as you ride with us!
It is often the case that faster riders will add some miles before or after the main ride to achieve their distance targets. Please, if you intend to do this, share that via Spond or Facebook so that others may join you.
At the moment we have two of our regular ride leaders unavailable for medical reasons. We are looking for volunteers to lead these rides - please contact us via the website or via Spond if you can help out.
Fridays: a ladies' daytime group ride (not strictly HCC) continues. For further details please either use the Contact Us form or look for announcements on Spond. This ride is very popular and may split into two groups on occasion.
As always, please, please watch Spond and Facebook for details of individual rides. And if you're going on a ride and you don't mind others coming along, create an Event on Spond and let everyone know.
I will also try to update the Calendar with other local rides that members may wish to consider. There will be links to the appropriate websites, and please take any queries to the relevant organisers.
Cycling fun for children at Hadleigh CC
So, the 2023 coaching season is over and it's been a great year!
Since the Go-Ride event at the Cricket Club way back in the Spring, HCC has delivered a lot of training and fun to our Junior Club, and the progress the children have made has been amazing! The Cyclocross season is about to begin, and a select few of our Juniors will be racing into the winter - and we wish them every success.
The programme for 2024 will be announced in due course. In the meantime, we thank Benson Ho for all the work he's put into the Junior Club this year, turning it into a real success story!
