Alton CC Mini Ride: Please come and join us for a beginner’s club ride on Sunday 9th April, 10:00am ... we plan on a 10 mile, flat ride with a coffee and cakes half way at the Golden Pheasant at Lower Farringdon. This ride is our showcase and all are welcome - come along and find out about what Alton CC is all about. It doesn't matter what bike you ride on as long as it’s road worthy. If you have any questions feel free to email Mike at mikehayward64@hotmail.com .

 

 

Bike Maintenance Workshop: Cycling UK, represented by Hampshire Cycling Development Officer Susan Keywood, have organised a Bike Maintenance Workshop in Alton, at the Community Centre, between 10 am and 1 pm on Saturday March 25th. As this is primarily aimed at families (i.e. parents and children), with an emphasis on providing basic maintenance skills, many of you in the club will possibly already be competent in the skills involved. But if you have friends and family who would gain in confidence to ride their bikes, just by knowing how to address bike maintenance basics, then this will be right up their street!. Please do share this notice with anyone you think might be interested.

 

2018 Phil Hampton Ride: Alton CC members supported the annual Phil Hampton ride, organised by Dan and Janice Montgomerie. This 50 mile ride raised funds for the Cyclist's Defence Fund and commemorates Phil Hampton, a well known local cyclist who was killed by a heavy goods vehicle whilst returning from a long distance cycle event.

Club Newsletter: Alton CC's club newsletter has now been published and can be read or downloaded here. Thanks to all our members who contributed material to Jim - please keep these coming since without them we'd just have blank pages!

Club handbook: The latest edition is available here. There's lots of useful information about the club, cycling and our record holders and championship winners going back to 1936!
