Hi reader

This week at Avanti Towers we have been upgrading some of the newsletter machinery - so it might look a little different - hopefully for the better. That means we're a little late getting this newsflash out to you -thankfully there's nothing urgent happening!
See the classy picture to the right for a reminder of the fun times we had a few weeks ago - the last time I was out on the road bike - at Brands Hatch.

Last weekend we had our inaugural Tour de North Kent - aka the Whitstable Weekender - brilliantly assisted by our friend Angus at Le vie en Velo.
Big thanks to Graham, Tony and everyone else involved in making it happen - did everyone enjoy it enough to make the trip again next year? Let us know. We want to see more pics from last weekend - please mail to news@gsavanti.co.uk
We had our latest committee meeting earlier this week - it was very well attended - Chris will tell you more about what happened in next week's newsletter - stay tuned.
The big thing is getting you to help the club - both in terms of the running of the club, and the running of the Kentish Killer. It's your club and the more we share the running of it, the better it is for everyone. We'll be reaching out to let you know more soon.

Race Action

We're well into the 2017-18 CycloCross season - and we have some members dipping their toe into the fun this weekend - good luck to Bill Fitzgerald and Andy South - see you at Herne Hill on Sunday and look forward to reading about how your first CX race felt.
Reminder that you can claim back part of your entry to races of any discipline that you take part in as part of the club - we want to see you out there flying the Avanti colours!
Full detail on the website here.
The Winter Track League at Lee Valley Velodrome is coming up soon and some of us might be taking part in that - if you'd like to get involved in track riding/racing - join the group here and let us know.

A word on attendance

Please give your ride leaders the courtesy of clicking to attend the rides in advance. Currently I can see 4 people other than the ride leaders marked as attending across all 5 rides. We regularly see more people at The G than sign up on the website - and it's not fair on those that give up their time in advance to prepare a ride.
Even if you're thinking about a ride - please put yourself as a maybe.

That's all for now

Thanks for making it this far - have a great weekend on the bike.
If you have anything you'd like to share with the rest of the club in future newsletters - pop it into an email to news@gsavanti.co.uk
