By: Penny Schenkel Interested in Treasure ... Sunday 17 September 2017
Some information about the upcoming Treasure Hunt on Sunday 17th September 2017 at 09:30. The start will be at the memorial in the Old Town and the route will be Ö ???
Did you think it would be that easy.
ďIím not sure why Iím doing this, but I admit itís a pleasure.
To be acting suspiciously while hiding some treasure.
Youíll pass places unfamiliar and others youíll know.
To collect all thatís required and this you must show.
So with answers to locate and a mascot to find.
Take part in an exercise of body and mind.
With air in your tyres and a smile on your face.
Remember itís for fun and never a race.
For the winner, a prize, the glory, the fame.
And the rest of you all, just live with the shame.
Hereís a hint for the finish, it might help you think.
Just find where Iím hiding and maybe buy me a drink.Ē

By: Penny Schenkel Think about the Weekend - Lots going on!
This Saturday (29th July) Pete is leading a group down to the London FREE CYCLE event. This is an awesome day out ... meet at Bragbury End at 8am to join in with this.
On Sunday we have at least 2 riders doing the RIDE LONDON event, Nicola and Jason Morris are regular riders with the group and they are very excited about this event.
Not to be outdone our own Bruce White is taking on London-Edinburgh-London 2017 (1436 km long and has 11,128 m of climbing). It starts on 30 July and goes on until 4th August, it's one hell of a bike ride. Post any encouragement to firstname.lastname@example.org (I will collate and pass them onto him) ... not that he will have much time for such things on route but I know he will appreciate it!
You can follow him and see how he progresses here: https://londonedinburghlondon.com/tracking-rider/

By: Tina WalkerVolunteers wanted
On 16 July, Welwyn Wheelers will be promoting the Welwyn Petit Tour: closed-road circuit racing in the centre of Welwyn Garden City. This event is a organised in partnership with Kinetic Cycles and Herts County Council.
To deliver an event on this scale we are going to need a small army (60+) of marshals, more than we are able to muster from within the club.
So I write with a request: would your club or organisation be able to provide any additional marshalls to us for the a part of the day? Any assistance - even just one or two names - would be hugely welcome.
Marshalling will be not be onerous (primarily manning pedestrian crossings during races): marshals will be required from 9:30am to 6pm but will be organised in at least two shifts, and refreshments for marshals will be provided. If you have members participating in races on the day, perhaps their accompanying family or friends would be prepared to volunteer? Any assistance for clear-down (6-7pm) will also be very welcome.
Please respond to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, with volunteer names, mobile number, email and preferred time slots.
Many thanks in advance,
Chair, Welwyn Wheelers CC
