NYD ride

This year we have decided not to promote the traditional New Year’s Day ride.  If however you wish to ride in groups please do and remember social distancing at all times.

WSCC Kit Now Available

The latest consignment of WSCC kit from Alé has now been delivered.  For those who asked me to include their requirements with the club order, it is now ready for collection.

We do also have around 14 of the most popular items and sizes which are being held as club stock at my house in Send.  So for any new members, or those who did not take advantage of the opportunity to order in September, there is still a chance to buy.  To recap, the kit items and prices are as follows:

  • Women’s short sleeve jersey £45.00
  • Men’s short sleeve jersey £45.00
  • Long sleeve jersey £55.25
  • Gilet £50.40

Each of the above is available in different sizes.  If you are interested in buying, please let me know and I can advise on availability, sizes and payment arrangements (direct to the club’s bank account).


Derek Tanner

It is with great sadness that we report the death of Derek Tanner on Sunday, 21st November at the age of 71. His cancer spread at an alarming rate during his last days; Anne was with him when he passed away in St George’s Hospital.

Derek was a lovely person who made a great contribution to all the clubs and groups he joined. A generous man, he shared his technical nous in helping everyone with their bike problems and led many memorable rides on well thought out routes. He was Club secretary for three years, and at other times a committee member and vice-president. His outstanding organisational abilities will perhaps be most remembered for the May Day weekends (and optional extensions) that he organised for ten years, always something to look forward to as we endured the dark days of winter. His superb leadership was always good humoured and unobtrusive with great kindness.

Derek and Anne led a full and adventurous life. Their many cycle and scuba diving expeditions to far flung corners of the world were an inspiration to us all, shared with his friends in his camera, scuba, cycling and swimming clubs via ‘Tannerama’, his professional slide shows and audio-visual presentations.

He will be sorely missed by us all and our thoughts are with Anne at this difficult time.

Some club members have expressed their memories with a better turn of phrase than me so quite a few of their words appear above.

Guildford Godalming Greenway


Surrey County Council request your opinion and  options for this away from road traffic cycle and walking route.

Support this project not only to provide more safe cycling and enable folks wary of vehicles to get cycling, but to let the councillors know there is demand for cycle infrastructure.  https://guildfordtogodalminggreenway.commonplace.is/

Do it now, consultation closes on 21st November.
