Club Rides Cancellation

In view of recent government advice to avoid social gatherings in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, the club committee has taken the decision to suspend all Walden Velo club runs until further notice.

In reaching this decision, we have considered both the advice on social distancing and the need to avoid additional demand on the health services should an accident occur.

All club rides are cancelled until further notice.

AGM Feb – 2020

The club held our AGM on Tuesday at our usual haunt; Bicicletta Coffee Con Velo. The meet had a sociable feel, with a largely Belgian theme to the evening. Waffles were provided by Waffle & Co!

The evening discussions included our plans for the new year:

  • Trip to Mallorca
  • Club taster sessions at the Velodrome
  • Support to run the carnival sportive
  • Agreement to bring in a professional coach

It was a fantastic chance to celebrate our members achievements from last year:

  • The club shield was awarded to a rider with more miles under her belt than many of us can imagine.
  • Racing success
  • Charitable efforts
  • And much, much more!

More formally, we discussed changes to club operation:

  • Changes to our constitution
  • (Slight) change to the start time for mid-week rides – Now 9.30am.
  • Rewards to encourage involvement in the club

Minutes and slides will be shared with members in the near future. Watch this space.

We look forward to what 2020 brings!
