Dear Avanti Member,

We had a great evening on Monday, thanking everyone that could make it for helping make the KK yet another success. Mugs, t-shirts, leftover flapjacks and gels (in odd flavours) were distributed to eager recipients.

Kit News

The Kalas club shop has closed for the month and we've had enough orders to be processed - the items will be delivered towards the end of April. The shop will open again on 1st April for another 2 week window.

We are thinking about stocking caps - please let me know if you'd be interested in buying a cap some time this year - we have to buy a job lot of them.They're really good - ask Sam - they fit well under a helmet.

We've just had some samples of the new Elite bib shorts and they are excellent - they have the same silicone grippers on the legs as the Pro shorts - at a lower price. Also the 2016 Elastic Interface pads are really good. Much recommended!

New Members

We're still growing - please welcome Peter Cvjetan and Lyndall Newton-Early to the club.
