Club News 29 November 2018

 

It is hard to believe that there are only 2 weekends of "official" club rides left for 2018.  But as usual,  unofficial club rides will continue through the holiday period.  Details of these rides will be included in next week’s newsletter.
 
Xmas Box
It’s that time of the year again where we ask you to  make a small donation towards a Xmas box for Olly.  He does an amazing job supporting us on the club rides every weekend and this is just small way to thank him personally for assisting you throughout the year.  Your donation can be paid into the Club100 account using “Olly” as a reference.  Banking details – Nedbank Sandton, A/C no. 1970 605 340, Branch Code 197 005.
 
Cape Town Cycle Tour – Entries needed!!
If you have entered the CTCT and are now not able to take part, please let me know as I am sure we can find someone to take it off your hands.  I am also looking for 1 free entry.  So if you are not too fussed about getting your money back please let me know as I have someone in need that can use it.
 
World of Cycling
With Christmas just around the corner, why not spoil a cycling friend with the World of Cycling board game.  This is a trivia board game about cycling history since 1892.  The game cover 3 categories, Major Tours, Classics & Trivia.
