Alton CC AGM: Members enjoyed free mince pies at the Alton CC Annual Meeting and heard about the club's activities in 2016. You can read the minutes here. The committee and other officers were all re-elected. We need more help with time keeping and running our open events. If you would like to get involved please contact Ian Austin or use the contacts page.

Calshot Track Riding: Alton CC were at Calshot velodrome just before Christmas. There was a mixed group of first timers and experienced riders who all enjoyed the session directed by our coach Graham.

 

Alton CC Dinner: We will be holding the annual dinner at the Rugby Club on Friday 27th January. This year our guest of honour will be the well known author and humourist Tim Moore. To ensure you do not miss out on what promises to be a special occasion we suggest you get your choices in early! Jim has recently emailed all members - please return your booking form by Friday 20th January,

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!
