LBS: "Oh, by the way we're starting a cycle club"
Me: "What, a proper cycle club?!"
LBS: "Yep, proper cycle club"
Guess there's no reason why you couldn't establish a new cycle club, just that the ones around currently have existed for the last 100 years or so.
Details are fairly thin now. LBS (Bike n Bean, South Morang) successfully applied for a grant from the Whittlesea council.
There's some more info on their blog.
The Club's main objectives will be:
1. Organise and run cycling events in Whittlesea (Road, Mountain & Cyclocross)
2. Encourage members of the community to undertake cycling for recreation and exercise at club level
3. Assist in training programmes for personal cycling development with mentoring system for beginners
Information night this Tuesday
First meeting will be Tues 11 Sep 2012 at 7.30pm at Bike n Bean store, 797 Plenty Rd, South Morang. Please RSVP to email@example.com to let us know you are coming.
