Tubeless Tyres for Road Bikes – Part 1

Much of our experience of cycling concerns struggle. Struggle to keep up. Struggle to keep going. Struggle to keep the bike going. When it comes to dealing with a recalcitrant velo, the number #1 item on the snagging list is the tyre and its ability to provide a safe ride without unwelcome deflation.

Membership changes for 2015

The membership fees have been changed for the first time in a number of years. There will be one membership for adults and one for under 18s. Members of other clubs will be able to join as second claim and they will pay the same membership and pay the same fees at the TT series. The only difference for second claim members will be that they will not be able to claim club awards.

The fee for all adult members will be £15 and for under 18s will be £10. These will be payable through British Cycling club manager, which we have introduced to help simplify the club's administration. There will be £1 handling charge added by British Cycling for payment on-line.

The membership year now extends up to 1st March and you have until this date to pay. All the people who have paid will have their membership continued up the end of February 2016. Club membership cards will be posted during the first half of March 2015. These can be used for discounts and to prove membership if required.

Updated - Behaviour towards the public when riding in club kit

As Club Secretary, I pick up most general correspondence from people trying to get in touch with the club. This week's bag includes an email from a member of the public (and fellow cyclist) who reports being verbally abused by riders he identifies as being members of RCC. Regardless of how individual riders may be feeling at any time, please remember that our club code of conduct requires that when riding as a club we must behave in a manner that represents Reading Cycling Club in a good light.

Cycling Time Trials AGM


We have received the agenda for Cycling Time Trials 2012 AGM, and note a number of proposals that are likely to be controversial. In particular:

Steve Ferry's LEJoG 2010... in 5 days

Why ride LEJOG? Everyone who does this ride has a reason. It is not undertaken lightly and uses up training time and a fair chunk of holiday allowance.
