Tandem Captain Wanted

We have had a request for help:

"I would really appreciate any help you might be able to give in finding a volunteer Captain. I am blind with no useful vision - but I am very capable and my balance has been described as exceptional - i.e. I wonít and donít wobble about on the back 😊"

He has a tandem and is raring to go - is there anyone out there who would like to give it a try?

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.
