We would like to invite everyone to the Annual Cyclists' Carol Service at Meriden. As usual the Village Hall will be open for traditional mince pies and light refreshments from 11a.m. A good opportunity to meet friends and have a chat. Please bring your own lunch.
We will be holding our Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 7th June. In addition to our reports on this year and the business of electing our officers, we will also have presentations and a discussion about the benefits of reducing rat-running on residential streets.
In 2015 Stephen Jones was one of the riders who completed the Tour de France One Day Ahead Challenge with former England Footballer Geoff Thomas. Stephen cycled all 21 stages of the Tour de France with ten other riders just 24 hours ahead of the professional peloton and in so doing they raised c.£1m for Birmingham Charity Cure Leukaemia.
You can hear Stephen’s story on this incredible challenge and be one of the first to see the promotional trailer for the Geoff Thomas/Lance Armstrong documentary that was filmed during the event.
