Club Track Day Herne Hill:
The track day on the 13th of July proved to be a success despite the earlier problem of the stadium not being opened in time and there being no access to the stadiums supply of track bikes. A very big thank you to the organisers for making it a great day for both novices and the experienced riders. As compensation for the inconvenience caused the Club are to be allowed a free day on the track next year, probably July. Do not miss a wonderful cycling experience.
The Velopark Stratford has been booked for 2nd November, bookings via Terry Blake.
