Entries now closed

All 'in advance' entries have now closed for the Stevenage Start of Summertime Specials on Sunday.

If you wish to enter any of the three distances you will now need to bring a completed entry form along with 10 (210KM), 9 (115KM) or 8 (60KM) dependant on distance. We aim to accommodate all on-the-line entries but numbers are limited to the number of brevet cards available.

There have been hundreds of entries for Sunday's rides so far and we are already looking well up on last year's cold and wet event.

Last chance to enter in advance

This is your last chance to enter in advance for the Start of Summertime Specials. If you are entering by post, we should already have your entry forms and payment but if you are entering online you have about another 24 hours to make your entry.

Online entries will close on Thursday evening (27th March).

Do you have twitter? If so then in your preparation for the event on Sunday, or on the day itself then you can tweet us @StevenageCTC and we will be using the hashtag #CTCSSOSS.

SSoSS gets closer

The Stevenage Start of Summertime Specials are now getting even closer with less than two weeks until the clocks change and we all get on our bikes to celebrate the start of summertime.

With hundreds of riders expected, if you have not already entered, now is the time to do so.

If you are not able to ride but would still like to be involved then please contact Paul and Luke to offer your help. Our volunteer forms and entry forms are all available on the Start of Summertime page.

Found a pothole? Report it!

fillthathole.org.uk have been working for years to try and fix all those pesky holes and other obstructions in the road that the highways authorities otherwise would not know about or do anything with.

If you find a pothole, raised ironworks, or anything that could cause a hazard, not only to cyclists but for pedestrians and car drivers too, then make sure to go to fillthathole.org.uk and report that hazard!
