Go-Ride section: The sessions continue to be well attended. There are now 7 Club coaches.
The sections Treasurer, Gareth Cozens, is now stepping down from the role. A volunteer is now required to take on the role. Gareth has given many years of service to this role and the Club warmly thanks him for all that he has done.
Club Runs: The Sunday club runs are now to adopt the summer runs as set out on the website. It was suggested that members may wish to organise a Saturday club run. However, a number of members present advised that they already take part in the Sidcup Cycles Saturday runs. There appeared to be no demand for an additional club run. Members mentioned, that when riding with Sidcup Cycles, as second claim members, they, as a matter of curtesy, do not wear their Woolwich Jerseys, preferring to wear trade tops. It was been suggested that 2nd claim members of the Woolwich should also consider not wearing the jersey of their 1st claim club when on a clubrun.
Sundry Issues: Terry Blake is to be undertaking 4 coaching sessions at the Olympic Velodrome in the near future (dates to be advised). Woolwich members will initially be offered first refusal.
The Club picnic/coaching session at Herne Hill is to be held on 14th June. (Open to members, friends and families).
