For those who are CTC members, the national organisation is having its AGM on Saturday 23rd April at 2.00pm in The Rootes Social Building. Please remember that you will need your CTC membership card, or other proof of current membership.
Also on Saturday morning there is an opportunity to visit the National Cycle Archive from 10.00am in the Modern Records Centre at the back of the library. A coffee run from The Arts Centre at 10.00am, returning at 1.00pm in time for lunch before the AGM.
For those who aren't CTC members, I'd like to give it a plug: link
If you peruse the National Cycle Archive you'd realise that there used to be loads of cycle clubs, but almost all have fallen by the wayside. A long time has passed since the days of the Starley family when Coventry was proud to be described as "the Bicycle Capital of the World"
On Sunday I've been roped in to leading a 60 mile tour of some Warwickshire lanes leaving from the Arts Centre at 9:15 am. On-road, 11–12 m.p.h. average when in the saddle, three stops for refreshments, back by 5 pm. Non-members can come along to see what we do. We normally leave from Coventry railway station for 60–70 mile rides every Sunday.
