Notice of the start of the new term tomorrow, Saturday 25th February for the Saturday morning coaching sessions. Payment will be taken for four weeks and we are planning a group outing on the 25th March. More details will follow soon on this. We also have the AGM tomorrow so please come along with ideas for club development.
Rotarians are already planning to welcome you on Sunday 9th April to the 31st Annual sponsored ride through North Kent starting and finishing at the Promenade beside the River Thames at Gravesend with the 15, 30 and 45 mile routes to choose from.
For 2017 we will again be supporting this very worthwhile charity as main beneficiary – ellenor which runs a hospice at Northfleet plus home care in the Gravesham, Dartford and Swanley areas..
Your efforts also let us help further Rotary supported charities!
‘On Your Bike’ is intended as a ‘Fun Ride’, putting the fun into fundraising. The Rotary Club of Gravesend is again pleased to acknowledge help from Gravesend Cyclists Touring Club.
To help more charities we need more sponsorship money and more riders. There were 800 plus in 2016. We want 1,000 in 2017.
Sponsorship of you is key to our success. Ensure sponsor’s names are there to contact after the day. You can show your control card or certificate to prove you did it!
There is also the ability to have the donation gift aided. See how to do this on the sponsorship form we enclose with your entry pack and which will need to be returned to the organisers. We must have your sponsors’ full addresses to be able to claim Gift Aid.
All you keen route cyclists who take part — get Virgin Money Giving too!
I’m looking at a ride Tuesday evening around the Cobham area, starting about 6.30pm. Adults only, so who’s up for it. Just make sure you have good lights as the woods are dark!
To the club BMXers, our Friday night sessions are now running from 5-7pm due to the parks winter closing times. (Wednesday session times remain 6-8pm).
Results now include 8th October 2016
