Another great sportive - Thank you
9:33 Sun, 26 Jun 2016
On behalf the club I would like thank Richard Oakes and the legion of members that made our club run sportive another great event.
Over the weeks and months we are collating feedback and images. We are already looking ahead to next year to plan how we move things forward. More information will follow in late autumn.
Richard has written to everyone thanking all our members that have made this happen. We have also written to all the riders with post-ride updates and links. It was particularly great to see many BCC riders out too.
See our facebook page for lots of sportive posts.
A few weeks after the sportive we are energising ourselves and concentarting on club business and thinking about the next event which is the end of summer BBQ.
If you have any sportive images please post them here.
Any feedback please email Richard Oakes: firstname.lastname@example.org
