THIS YEAR’S Christmas Party, for members and their partners, is on Saturday 15th December. Once again it will be at the excellent Old Barn, Wadenhoe, which looked after us so well last year!

In accordance with tradition and weather permitting, there will be the usual group ride to the meal starting out from Rutland Cycling in Ham Lane. Watch out for details nearer the time. If you don’t fancy the ride then just simply meet us there. For those without suitable lights, or those who just don’t fancy the ride home, there will be the option of leaving your bike in secure storage at Wadenhoe so that you can collect it on the Sunday. We are also trying to arrange for a van to take bikes back to Ham Lane! Again WATCH THIS SPACE.

Festivities at Wadenhoe will start at 12.30 pm with coffee, wine beer and soft drinks. This will be followed by Secret Santa pressies (don’t forget to bring one!) at 1.00 pm and our sit down lunch around 1.10 pm. From 2.30 pm to 4.00 pm there will the presentation of cycling celebrities, our famous awards ceremony followed by the usual festive entertainment!
