Ladies cycling jersey

It has been pointed out that the only ladies jersey available is the sport fit, which is described as unisex, and therefore may well not be ideal for ladies. I have therefore added another item to the list of clothing available, being:- Ladies short sleeve pro fit jersey, 3/4 zip  Price £43  Sizes S1 to S10 (see Owayo website for full details) The pro fit is more expensive than the sport fit, but I have applied a similar level of discount.  The pro fit is also a more snug fit, we have had one previous order for this item (in 2015), at size S7, and if you are concerned about sizing I can put you in touch with that purchaser, if you e-mail me to let me know. If you wish to order this item, please e-mail me by the deadline, this Sunday, 19th November. John Murdoch

Club clothing order

A quick reminder that the very final date for placing an order for club clothing is this Sunday, 19th November; see the blog post of 20th October. The cost of individual orders is prohibitive, which is the reason why we order in batches; once this order has been placed it may be some time before demand is sufficient to warrant another batch order, so if you want some more kit, I suggest you order now.  You will see that generous Club discounts have been made available. Please e-mail me if you have any queries. John Murdoch

Safe cycling routes in Guildford. Tell the council what you think about their new plans

Surrey Council have released their plans for a new Sustainable Movement Corridor (West) to help improve sustainable travel from the Research Park to the station. Please help us make it better by commenting today   We think the plans don’t go far enough and we need your help to improve the route for those who want to cycle this route safely. Have a look at the plans here and then go to the Surrey Council website to make your voice heard by this Sunday 29th October. Here’s some of our feedback that you might want to include in your response: The planned SMC(West) will have many stops and delays for cyclists. It is essential to minimise waiting times at junctions, exits etc, otherwise cyclists will be tempted to take risks, or just stay on the road, and the plans will not create a significant modal shift. Priority must be given to

West Surrey Cycle Clothing – New Order

      A new order for West Surrey cycle clothing will shortly be placed, so now is the time to refresh your own cycling wardrobe. The committee have agreed to provide a generous discount on all clothing, to encourage West Surrey members to wear our own branded kit.  This subsidy includes a commitment to cover the cost of any surcharges levied by our supplier for low order volumes, which means for the first time we can quote a guaranteed price for reach item, no matter what quantity is ordered. Our ability to provide this subsidy results from the profits made on club events such as the Tour of the Hills, and our wish to give this back for the benefit of members.  Therefore, those who helped out on events this year can be rewarded for their contribution, and those who did not can also benefit, and no doubt make

Cycling Facilities in Guildford

The following message was received recently concerning provision of places to park cycles in Guildford High Street. I’m sure many of us would support this initiative so please take a few moments to send an email to Guildford BC’s Conservation Officer – full details below. Dear Mr Waters I am a member of the congregation of Holy Trinity Church in Guildford (top of the High Street).  We are currently engaged in a programme to encourage and support more sustainable lifestyles, not only amongst our own congregation but also the public. One aspect of this is to encourage more of our congregation to use their cars less and cycle into Guildford.  To this end, we are currently trying to persuade Guildford Borough Council to put 2 – 3 cycle racks outside Holy Trinity Church which would, of course, be available to everyone. Cllr Mark Brett-Warburton from Surrey County Council is pushing

Your Club Needs You

We’re looking for a new Treasurer and a new ‘ordinary’ Committee Member. Our Treasurer, Arthur, would like to stand down – he’s been doing the job for quite some time now – and so we’re looking for someone to take his place. Arthur assures us that it’s an easy job and he’s more than happy to offer guidance to his successor. Roger, who has worked tirelessly for the club for longer than I can remember, would like to step down because another job he does is proving more arduous than expected. This is a great opportunity for someone who would like to contribute modestly to the running of the club with a view, perhaps, to taking on one of the great offices at a later stage (but with no commitment at all). If you are even slightly interested in either of these posts and would like to find out more,
