  • Club Rides

Ongoing as noted on the website – training

  • MTB Event

AW advised the event is now planned for Saturday 4th or 11th July 2020.. Confirmation to follow.


Appeared all went well, as reported elsewhere, so a big thanks to all who supported the event.

AW reported a loss to the club of approximately £250, principally due to over generosity in prize money. A lesson to be learned for future?

  • Club Trophies

An old Whitworth Wheelers trophy has been found, last contested in 2002 for an East Lancs v RRC event. AW has passed on to TB for cleaning and discussion with East Lancs for possible event resurrection, late season. 

  • Club Kit

The main purpose of the re-arranged meeting was the presentation by Apex Custom Clothing of their new kit lines. An excellent evening with some good discussions with Wayne and Steven of Apex.

Main points were:

Similar quality to Champion

Lower prices of main garments

Individually ordering and payment

2/3 weeks delivery after closure of each order ‘window’

It was agreed to proceed with Apex.AW to forward club kit scheme to Apex. When approved by the club, then first order ‘window’ can be opened.

In the meantime, visit the Apex Custom Clothing website for the full range of garments and prices. 

  • Venue

There is a new landlord at The Jolly Sailor, and he made every effort to make the club welcome. Luke offered to provide some supper for the next meeting, if required. DS agreed to arrange. 

  • Rossendale Spoco

It was confirmed that Saturday, 22nd February is the date for the Bolton by Bowland event. Linda has confirmed the village hall is booked. PW will be looking for marshals etc.

Note: John Leach has offered to be pusher-off. Please can PW contact him to confirm?
