Late December saw CCC taking to the boards again at The National Cycling Centre in Manchester. Open 7 days a week and the busiest in the world so it was brilliant to have it to ourselves for 2 hours. There was a mixture of abilities and experience but through Charlie’s excellent planning and support everyone soon got up to speed as the confidence developed. No crashes or incidence’s just lots of speed and fun was had by all. Appreciation and thanks to Polly & Lee for organising.
December the 28th saw the Macclesfield Wheelers Supercross. Amongst the hundreds of riders in the Cross Country races, Congleton was represented by Mike Jones (finished 49th) in the veterans race and by Will Booth (finished 36th) and Charlie Evans (finished 28th) in the senior race.
The Club’s New Years Day walk this year was around Tittesworth Reservoir at Meerbrook. The weather was kind and allowed 23 people including members, family and friends to enjoy the social ramble, after which the coffee and cake in the visitor centre.
As its been well reported in the north west, the weather during the last 4 weeks as been pretty horrible, more rain than normal and we’ve also had high winds, despite that we’ve maintained the Saturday and Sunday rides, and had some good turn outs. The weather certainly hasn’t damped spiritus and the normal humour and banter abounds.
