East Yorkshire CTC AGM – Secretaries Report
East Yorkshire CTC
Secretary`s Report 2016
Firstly, I would like to thank members who have served on the Committee throughout the year, often doing work which is not seen by most people.
Our meeting room which we have used for several years proved unsatisfactory & we have recently moved to The Trafalgar Centre
At 30 September we had 471 members registered with our Member Group.
Our Sunday rides now mainly involve 2 groups, an Easy pace group & a Moderate pace group.
A “Brisk group“ exists on an informal basis
Our Rides list is now prepared quarterly. Most rides do not show the name of a ride leader as, unfortunately, it has proved difficult to get members to volunteer in advance. As a result, ride leaders are often appointed on the day of the ride
“Standard rides” (including a Challenge ride, a G.H.S. ride & a Memorial ride) used the Cottingham
Methodist Church Hall as a start & finish point
We had successful trips to Saumur in France, a 2 day trip to Helmsley & a trip to Belgium, involving 2 nights on board the ferry & one day cycling
Both our Christmas lunch & our Annual dinner were held at Cottingham Country Park Golf Club.
This venue was popular & we are intending to use it again
Communications with members are now mainly via our website or by emails
Cycling UK is now the trading name of The Cyclists` Touring Club
The Cyclists` Touring Club remains the name of the Company limited by Guarantee & registered as a charity
