Group Events

On the social side, we have regular group rides to interesting or picturesque locations. We are always looking for volunteers to lead these rides (training is given if required) and the events co-ordinator is always very pleased to hear about suitable destinations. Other events include talks on a range of subjects, skittles matches against other groups, track days etc, etc - please see the Calendar Page for more information.

But the group doesn't run itself and we have a dedicated committee who keep the wheels oiled (if you'll excuse the pun). We are always looking for new committee members with new ideas so if you are interested in joining the engine room (another pun?) then please speak to any member of the committee (see Who's Who for details).
