The Swindon Section of the Bristol DA CTC, was reformed at an inaugural meeting in 1982 with the late Dr Eric Tull as Secretary, Dave Lyle as Chairman and Tom Whitehead as Treasurer.

Soon we had a regular 15-20 strong active Sunday riders lead by Eric and Dave, with Peter Roberts and Bernard Cashman alternatively leading Saturday afternoon rides which became very popular with occasional good weather off road runs.  Bernard lead the Saturday runs for the next 14 years whilst Eric organised the hostel, lardy, hill climb and freewheel runs.

The Section flourished financially as Tom as treasurer and when Gordon Taylor became Secretary with his wife Jean representing the ladies we had a good organisation.

In the early 90’s when Eric and Bernard retired, the Wednesday group was set up and became a popular fixture usually run by John Burnett and are quite well attended.  The Saturday afternoon rides were an optional easy pace, with Gordon on a 30 mile ride with Doug Bolton taking over from Gordon at a later date.  Amanda Caswell leads the all day rides.

Our current Secretary is Mike Blundell aided by a dedicated committee with 2 able press officers, Gavin McIntosh, and Tim Myers, who furnish a comprehensive runs and information list.

The Group is open to any interested cyclists male and female to ride with us with no compulsion to join.
