What we are planning or have been up to lately.


MTB night ride

This week we are heading over to the Forest of Dean for the MTB night ride. We aim to meet at the PedalaBikeAway cafe at around 6:45 pm on Wednesday the 29th of October. The cafe is now on winter hours, so unfortunately no bacon butties at the end of the ride this time!

Proof that you don’t need the latest machine to have a little fun!

Barcelona or bust

With just over a year gone by since WCC’s two long distance specialists Russell Parker & Paul Workman set off towards Rome, the pair have been back in the saddle, and completed their latest adventure to Barcelon.

The route was slightly shorter in distance than last years epic, but there were more mountains in the way this time!

You can read up on their adventure on the blog site that has been set up – visit www.barcelona-or-bust.blogspot.co.uk for full details.
