Club History

The club was launched on the 1st of February 2010 by a group of volunteers who were working on the Croft trail. See the Croft trail history.

At that time they had run out of material and money. With official recognition and a constitution, the club could apply for grants and manage funds in a organised and accountable manner.

The regular Friday night rides of the trail became a permanent fixture and other club events were organised. When spring came round in 2010 the membership built up quickly.

We’re really proud of the club mentality: positive, enthusiastic, welcoming to new members. The structure is a collective with a bit of benign dictatorship to speed up the decision making process. The motto is most definitely “get on with it”. There’s always loads of discussion about ideas and future plans.

More history is in the 2011 AGM and annual review.
