Stevenage & NH CTC at ERITO conference

Today, the Stevenage and North Herts CTC visited the Eastern Region Instructor Training Organisation (Cycle Training) Annual Conference, being held at Longmeadow Primary School, Stevenage.

Our volunteers staffed a stand for two hours during which time the cycle trainers in attendance could speak to members of our group about what we do and to raise awareness of us.


Many thanks to all who helped to 'man' the stand. Sorry I wans't able to pop in much, Tina.

Got a couple of hours to spare on Friday next week (22nd Feb)?

Tina is looking for help to 'people' a CTC stand at the ERITO conference (East of England Cycle Training Organisation). It will be at Longmeadow School, Oaks Cross, Stevenage. You would be needed from 11:30 till 1:30 to talk to cycle trainers from the whole of the East of England about how good CTC is:-) and help pack away the stand at the end. It will be a captive audience with well over 100 already booked.

Help to set up on the 21st will also be appreciated. Contact webmaster through the contact page.

Stevenage Start of Summertime Specials

Our first major event of 2013 is only 2 months away now so please consider entering as soon as possible.

If you don't think that you can ride, please offer to help man one of our many checkpoints. All help is most appreciated and it will help to improve the experience of the hundreds of riders who will be riding out from Stevenage on April 7th. If you intend to ride, you can still help if you can get to Costello's earlier.

Over 500 people entered one of the three rides on offer in 2012 and we are sure to see similar numbers entering this year so please enter early to ensure you get a brevet card. Remember, you will not be able to ride if you do not have a brevet card!

Back out on the road!

After the amazingly brilliant weather we have had of late (we all love snow right), we are pleased to report that we are back out on the roads with 3 rides (2 road and 1 off-road) making it around their routes.

We should be back out on the roads again tomorrow (Wednesday 30th) for our weekly Winter Wander with Jackie leading us on our way! Make sure you're at our Old Town meeting point for 7:15 PM tomorrow!
