News Round Up – 01/07/2015

Wow half the year gone and plenty more to fit in…

We have had another month of Tuesdays at UCLAN including a successful race evening, rides up Darwen Tower, along the Lune Valley, several Sunday rides with RVRCC, a soggy Leyland Festival and an award as ‘Community Sports Club of the Year’ from South Ribble BC.


We are probably moving to a new more versatile kit supplier with a wider range. Various members have emailed their future requirements. Subject to approval at the next meeting (see below) we will arrange a ‘try for size event’ and then ask for firm orders. These will take a quoted 6 weeks to arrive.


To make a viable order we need to order 10 items. Anyone
interested please email your requirements to with the title ‘ RVJ HOODIES’. Even if you have already done something similar!


To ratify kit details, costs and discounts for members etc. Monday 6/7/2015, 7pm at Bamber Bridge Catholic Club.
