CTC Peterborough AGM 5th May 2021
This will be via Zoom, on Wednesday 5th May, starting at 7p.m. If you plan to attend the meeting please email email@example.com with the subject heading 'CTC Peterborough AGM' Please include in the message your full name and Cycling UK membership number (if applicable). Please register by 24:00 on Sunday 2nd May. We then plan to mail the link to the meeting and any papers on Monday 3rd May.
We expect it will be a short meeting, primarily to approve the accounts (due with Cycling UK by 14 May) and elect a new Committee for 2021/22. A number of Committee members are standing down so that others have the opportunity to step up and become more involved in running the club.
We currently have the following nominations for Committee membership:
Chair – Pauline Smith
Secretary and Membership officer – Peter Herron
Treasurer – Miles Goff
Rides officer – David King
Social and Welfare officer – Paula Fye
Anyone wishing to make other nominations should contact me as soon as possible, and no later than 24:00 on Friday 16th April. To serve on the Committee a candidate must be a full member of Cycling UK and must be nominated and seconded by two full members. Anyone can attend the AGM but only full members of Cycling UK can vote.
When the date is announced we will request confirmation of who plans to attend so that we can forward the link for the meeting. Meanwhile, please contact me if you have any queries.

Return to Club Rides – probably 17th May
We are currently awaiting Cycling UK guidance on when it is possible to return to club rides.
From 29th March the rules allow groups of up to six people, or two households, to meet outdoors. The roadmap also indicates that organised sports can restart, which will not be subject to the rule of six gathering limit, but should be compliant with guidance issued by national governing bodies. CUK expect to clarify whether this will apply to club rides on 22nd March. However cafes will not be open at that stage except for takeaways.
On balance we think it most likely that if the Government's plan stays on track, we would offer club rides after 17th May when there are few restrictions planned. We will, of course, keep the guidance under review.
From March 29th it will be possible (subject to Government confirmation) to ride with friends in groups of up to six which can be organised informally.
Peterborough’s sociable cycling club, organising rides on quiet routes in Cambridgeshire, Rutland, Northants, and Lincs led by experienced Ride Leaders.
Get on your bike and explore the country lanes in a friendly group at a social/conversational pace. Non-Cycling UK members are welcome and can join us on three rides before deciding to join Cycling UK
At CTC Peterborough we have fun taking our cycling seriously but we don’t do any competitive rides so we’re never in training for anything. This means our rides tend to be slower than many cycling clubs'. However, we still ride some challenging routes so cycling with us is a great way to build fitness.
Our average pace on rides is around 12-13mph but if anyone is struggling and having a bad day, they won't be left behind. At CTC Peterborough we never leave anyone behind.
