Thirsk Ladies Annual Report to North Yorkshire CTC AGM
CTC Thirsk Ladies Annual Report to North Yorkshire CTC AGM 30th April 2023
Our cycling year began with the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions, providing opportunities, at last, to see friends and family, and travel. At first there seemed little time to cycle. We had a ride out lunch in December and an evening meal in January and despite what seemed like constantly wet Tuesdays, the loss of Cafes that were open on Tuesdays, members sickness and injuries; as a group we have developed and now have 15 members who are all on email.
Currently we have four registered ride leaders and two prospective ones together with a BC member who leads rides under supervision.
We re-evaluated what we wanted at the same time as some riders from the folded Tootlers group and from this, a new mixed group has arisen in Thirsk, under the flag of Sowerby Sunday Club. Meeting on Sundays for a day's ride, at a regular speed of 12.5 miles per hour has enabled some Thirsk Ladies to ride with their husbands.
