Easter Arrows 2013 PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 02 April 2013 00:00



Last Easter weekend saw the return of the yearly Easter Arrows to York on the bank holiday friday. Teams from all over the country pick a route and distance (min 369km) and have 24hrs to complete their ride and arrive at York at 9am for the traditional breakfast at the finish. 

This year the Bristol team went for 420km which they completed successfully in the time limit. It was a very tough year due to the extreme cold weather conditions. 420km mainly into a headwind, snow, and temperatures as low as -4! Many teams did not finish or had to reduce their routes and distances.

Well done to the 5 man team! above left to right -  Paul Rainbow, Dave Johnston, Mike Lane, Neil Veitch, Luke Joy-Smith

 
The Two Tunnels Opening ride – Saturday 6th April 2013 PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 25 March 2013 10:35

The Two Tunnels project is the creation a shared use path that will re-use what was the most characterful part of one of the UK's most famous railways - burrowing beneath Combe Down - the high ground south of the city. The routes makes use of the old Devonshire and Combe Down railway tunnels and continues across the spectacular Midford viaduct. This will be a dramatic and accessible route leading south from the city - and available for use on foot or cycle.


The opening of the route takes place on Saturday 6th April at Bloomfield Rd Open space Bath.


Cycle Bristol CTC are organising an easy paced ride to the opening event starting out at 9:30am from Temple Quay. All are welcome to join it. We will follow the Bristol Bath railway path to Bath in order to arrive at the opening in time for the opening ceremony 12:30pm. After the official opening the tunnels will be open for all to cycle through. Because large numbers are participated there may be some wait before we can cycle through but there is plenty to do at the opening festival to pass the time including food stalls and a beer tent!

Once through the tunnels we shall return to Bath via Monkton Combe, Dundas and the canal path and then back to Bristol via the Bristol/Bath railway path. Estimated distance for the days ride is 45 miles.

Castle Combe Cyclists' Church Service. Sunday 14th April 2013 PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 11 March 2013 16:22

Held every year since 27th May 1945, the Castle Combe church service is a celebration of cycling and a service of thanksgiving for the men in cycling battalions who fell in the Great War, and for the many cyclist soldiers, commandos and paras who did not return from World War 2.

Castle Combe, like the services held in May on the village green at Meridian, the centre of England; and at Coxwold, a few miles north of York; is now a memorial service and an informal, ecumenical gathering – especially for today’s cyclists in the West Country.


This year’s service is at held at St Andrews Church, Castle Combe at 2:30pm and is followed by tea and cake serviced in the church. All are welcome


Cycle Bristol CTC has two organised rides to the service:

• Start 8:45am at Page Park main gates for a 55 mile medium paced ride.

• Start 9:30am at Fishponds Fish for a 45 miles medium/easy paced ride.
