EBCC Membership Renewal

Don't forget to renew your membership if you haven't already done so. It brings substantial benefits to our members and is well worth the money. Young riders won't be able to access the Cluster track sessions nor the Regional Schools of Cycling without First Claim to EBCC.

East Bradford Success at the Cluster Games

Once again, our East Bradford riders did very well at the cluster games on the 23rd December at the Manchester Velodrome. All our representatives looked their best in our EBCC kit and worked their hardest against stiff competition.

James Coates, at his first ever track competition, won a silver medal at the games, our best achievement to date. Well done to our other cluster prepresentatives, Hannah & Luke Banks , and in the previous competition, Luke O'Connell.

Saturday 8th December

Hi all just a quick reminder - Saturday 8th December no club we are Bowling instead. We have booked places for all on the list. Unfortunately if your name is not on the list we can not guarantee that you will get to bowl as this will depend on how busy Hollywood Bowl is. If we can all try to meet from 10am to try to sort lanes, numbers and money. Cheers
