Paul Barker says:
To raise the profile of the club both locally and nationally,
we would like to organise our very own 100km sportive to take
place on the Sunday ( 24th ) of the August bank holiday weekend.
The success of the event will very much depend on the number of
people who will volunteer their resource to undertake various
duties including:- Marshaling, Car park attendants , Photography,
"Caterers", On course support and many other duties
which will be both club and route based.
our objective is very time driven and we would therefore request
that anyone who would consider offering their services for the
event, please contact Paul Barker via email firstname.lastname@example.org
no later than 20th March.
the event we do not achieve the support required, we will unfortunately
have to forgo the opportunity to organize our event and the benefits
it would bring the club.
should we get the support, we will hopefully achieve our objectives
and give all the volunteers the opportunity to ride the course
together on the Saturday preceding the event and to enjoy the
after event party.

I was really proud to have taken part in the women and girls Stourport
event organised by Louise Day at British cycling Sunday 19th Jan.
There were 50 women and 10 of us were ‘Halesowen Ladies’
which was fantastic support and demonstrates the appetite to get
involved. There were a combination of shapes, sizes, abilities
and bikes, it was an inclusive event and we were all made to feel
welcome. Check out our photo in the gallery!
was the first of many sessions, if you missed out or were unable
to come along to the first one you can still join in future dates,
just let Louise know and check BC events for details. Fortnightly
events are running at Stourport (Sundays & Wednesdays) and
Tudor Grange Solihull (Mondays).
