Hi Avanti Member

The Road Cycling World Championships have been fascinating to watch - especially how riders deal with the heat during TT. Amazingly - and perhaps not surprisingly - there are more spectators at our local time trials! Just the road race left now - should be fun - go Cav!

During the week, 8 Avanti stalwarts selflessly ate curry and drank beer and put the world to rights. Thanks to Lee for arranging.

Well done to Sam Dorkings and Dan Pink for taking part (with mixed results) at the Catforfd and Bec hill climbs last week! You can see the write-ups on the club forum. These are amazing events to take part in and hopefully we'll see more taking part next year.

Floodlit Fun at Gravesend Cyclo Park Tonight!

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.


 Club Rides this Weekend.

We have a full range of rides this weekend, starting with the Saturday morning ride at 8am. There is no info up at the moment - so like we used to do - turn up and work out a ride amongst the regulars that are there - something usually works itself out!

Sunday rides - the forecast is wet - so take care and make sure you don't get too soaked.

G1/2 - Steve Rodgers will lead a local 60 mile ride - details here.

G3 - the ride is not yet posted on the website - check before Sunday for details.

G4 - Ian Soper will lead a 45 mile ride to Aylesford Priory - details here.

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 and agenda 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

New Arrival!!!

Lastly - as I write this I've just heard from Patrick Norman that he is now the proud father of baby Elliot - healthy and happy and more than a handful at 8lb 3oz! We might be seeing a little less of Patrick for a while - congratulations from everyone at Avanti!


Stay warm, safe and dry!
