WELCOME TO GARSTANG CYCLING CLUB
THE FRIENDLY CYCLING CLUB FOR CYCLISTS OF ALL ABILITIES
COME AND JOIN US ON A CLUB RIDE
If you think you may want to join the club, why not introduce yourself on our Facebook page, or come down to our start point outside the Royal Oak in Garstang on a Saturday morning? Our rides start at 9-30am so get there early. We are a friendly club and not everyone is a lycra-clad racer, so don't feel intimidated if you are more leisure cyclist than Olympic hopeful!
For our current rides calendar, go to our 'Ride Calendar' page where you can download the three month rides programme.

Please note it is our AGM on Tuesday 25th October- 7.30pm- Royal Oak Pub Garstang
ELECTION OF OFFICERS
The following positions are up for election- the current occupants having served the two year term
-Chairman.......I am current chairman and prepared to stand for re-election for another two years. However, I only volunteered in the first place when no one else seemed interested!..
If YOU would like to take on the role, by all means throw your name in the hat....you will need a proposer and seconder at the meeting.
-Vice Chairman...Pete Hardman has decided to stand down and we sincerely thank him for helping out and organising some extremely enjoyable events over the years.
The role of vice chairman is very much a make of it what you like role, and it is very valuable to myself to be able to have someone who will muck in and share some of the workload.
-Secretary...This position has remained vacant for around a year now. It would be good if someone would come forward to join the committee and put forward their own ideas in taking things forward. As GCC gets more involved with other local clubs in cycling events, it would be good to have someone who represents the younger, more competitive element in the club, and can forge links elsewhere as we grow
-Treasurer- Position not up for re-election until 2017, and Steve Hopkinson is happy to continue. Thanks Steve
We are quite thin on the ground committee wise , and this at a time when we have a record number of club members- we get some very high turn outs or riders on Club rides, so SURELY, a few of you would like to actively participate in keeping the club moving along.....our rides programme (collated by Phil Durrigan) is the very core of our club activity. Our social events- club weekends, trips, are also very much looked forward to, as are the social evenings...but the few of us who organise all this aren't going to carry on doing it if no one else comes along to help out
Please have a think and let Phil Morgan know if you are interested- I'll then tell you what is involved
