CTC Coventry & CTC Rugby Rides for the week beginning Sunday 30th October 2016


  1. The next Tuesday night slide shows will be on Tuesday 1st November at 2000hrs at The Friends Meeting House, Hill Street, Coventry with a show by Alan Jelley & Katya Zhdanovich entitled "Journey to Belarus".
    A list of slide shows and presenters is available here. You will notice that there are a few spaces in the timetable - if you have pictures you would like to share with us one evening, please let Dave Hearn know at dave@margarethearn.plus.com. We can provide a laptop and projector, so all you need is a usb stick, or DVD with your pictures on.
  2. At the Annual General Meeting the existing committee was returned unchanged, except that we welcome Alan Jelley as Registration Officer and Robert Perkins as Auditor (not a committee post).
    By a vote of 6 to 4 and 4 abstentions, the meeting voted to retain our existing name, CTC Coventry, for our local group within the new brand of the CTC called Cycling UK.
    We also welcome Ross Spall from Rubgy CTC to join the CTC Coventry Committee.
  3. We now have 12 people booked onto Mike Thomas's Tour to Normandy in May 2017. If you are interested in joining us on this tour, please contact Mike on 02476 692792 or mike@mikethomas.org.uk and he will add your name to a waiting list, in case any places become available.
