Dear Avanti Member

Organised Club Rides are the core activity at GS Avanti. We have around 140 full members, with some individuals making an appearance every week and others less frequently than the annual Christmas Party! As a rule we currently run 5 organised rides over a weekend, and will soon launch a monthly “Introductory” ride aimed at prospective joiners.

Every couple of years it makes sense to check whether Club Rides are delivering what members want, and the last time we did that was in 2014.

This coming Monday we will have an “all club” meeting with the aim of fixing the way we run Club Rides for the next couple of years. We’d really appreciate it if you could find the time to attend, provide input and see where you might be able to help. The meeting is in a private room at the Chelsfield Pub, in Chelsfield, starting 8pm. More details are on the website, so please RSVP HERE – we will be organising drinks, and it’s a chance to meet others in the Club as well.

To assist with this, we have also put together a short survey, which will take you no more than 15 minutes to complete. It would really help if you could find the time to do that – we are all time poor volunteers who run the club, so this is a neat way of getting organised feedback. Results will be presented on Monday evening. Please CLICK HERE to go to the survey, or paste the link below in to your browser:


I hope to see you on Monday evening. In the meantime, enjoy the weekend.
