We have a full program of races which are all listed on the 2015 racing program page. Members can also now use our online club shop, visit the club shop page for more info and to order clothing . Do remember that significant discount can be obtained on clothing, if members get together and order together. The best thing to do, is to bring up the fact that you want to order something, when attending either a time trial or on one of the social nights. That way we can try and put people/orders together. It should be noted, that for most items, there are no minimum order quantities, so you don’t have to wait, should you be prepared to pay a bit extra.

Good luck to all our members during the coming racing season and always remember that whilst performance is admired, safety is number one and enjoyment number two.

Keep visiting this website for further developments or come along to one of our social nights (advertised on the raids and raves page), these social nights continue to be well attended.

Stay Strong
