Hi Avanti Member

The nights are getting darker, jumpers and heating are making an appearance and winter bikes are being wheeled out - hopefully we'll keep up the cycling fun throughout the Autumn and Winter.

Floodlit Fun at Gravesend Cyclo Park

GS Avanti are hiring, for private use, Cyclopark on the evening of Friday 14 October. Lee Staples is organising the activities which will combine some skills training and some fun events – all under floodlight. Details are on the event on the website - please click through to read more about it and how to attend. All members, whatever levels of experience or fitness are encouraged to attend. Being a Friday evening, there’s the additional option of a drink afterwards! It's free to members - and you can bring a guest.

Traditional End of Season Curry

To reward ourselves for training hard throughout the year, we usually have a midweek curry social when the evenings get darker. Lee Staples has arranged drinks and curry next Tuesday - 11th October and it would be great to see you all there - and see any new faces in the club too. See the event for details - please register your attendance as we need to book seats.

Club Rides this Weekend.

We have a full range of rides this weekend, starting with the Saturday morning ride at 8am. CLICK HERE for more info. The ride leader isn't yet up - so worst-case nominate a leader amongt those that turn up and enjoy a ride together.

Sunday rides

G1/2 - Russ Keaton and Steve Rodgers will lead a local ride taking in some favourite climbs and attempt to catch some of the action at the Catford Classic Hill Climb - where Yorks Hill turns into a vision of the Forest of Arenberg for the morning. Sam Dorkings and Dan Pink are taking on the challenge. Details here.

G3 - Steve Chivers will lead a ride out to Tulley's Farm. Details here.

G4 - the ride hasn't yet been posted - so keep an eye on the website.

Club Meeting on evening of 17 October 2016 – Westcoombe Park RFC

We have next Committee Meeting on 17 October, and all Club Members are very much welcome. In addition to the standard range of business, attendees will also get a chance to look at some Avanti winter kit and T Shirt designs – some very cool stuff on the horizon!

Club meeting details here.

Club Kit

We've had small orders by members the past few months for club kit, so this month we are holding open the shop window until the end of the month - where you'll be able to place orders for winter kit that will be delivered late November-early December.

This will be the last opportunity to order kit til the December window which will then be delivered late January - so ifyou want warm kit - get your order in before November.

See the website for access details: https://www.gsavanti.co.uk/membership/club-kit/

I've written up more info on the new winter kit options here too - please take a look.

Any questions - pop along to the club meeting or email kit@gsavanti.co.uk

For those that have kit to collect from me - there are a few jerseys and caps - I'll have the kit box at The G this Sunday before I set off at 9am, and at the curry next Tuesday and then again at the club meeting the following Monday.

Enjoy the weekend now that it's finally here!

Oh - and good luck Cav (and Sagan) in the worlds in the crazily hot conditions this weekend!
