Club kit order

Hi everyone,

The NCCC club kit order window is now open! You can now purchase one of those very stylish pink cycling caps that I know you’ve been waiting for all year…

The window is open from today until the 31st of July and it should then take around 4-5 weeks for the kit to be delivered. However, under the current circumstances there may be some delays in getting your kit to you.

I have attached the link to the store and a link to the sizing guide for Champion System.

If you have any questions, please do contact me and I’ll help you out.

Happy riding,

Covid19 update 17/03/2020

Hello All

I hope we are all well and holding up in this uncharted territory?

After conversations over the past few days and now some very decisive information from British Cycling it has been decided that we as a Club will cease all activities until further notice and further professional advice as and when it becomes available to us. To be clear this covers all Club Runs and Go Ride events.

We have not taken this decision without very careful consideration and we hope that you understand and support us in this time.

You will see the British Cycling release below.

Again I thank you all and remember just because you cant ride with the Club you can get out on your own and in the words of David you can go Solo, Solo, Solo! At least we are still able to ride ,unlike our friends in Europe, even the Pros in Spain are being fined for being out on their bicycles!

Take very good care of you and yours and we will be in touch with any updates as and when they become available.


British Cycling guidance for Covid-19 attached:

Based on the Government’s latest advice and guidance on the developing situation around Coronavirus/COVID19, British Cycling has suspended all of its sanctioned, cycling activities, initially until April 30.

This includes (but is not limited to):

– Competitive events at all levels – Non-competitive, registered events (eg sportives, reliability trials) – Recreational rides (throughout our suite of programmes including HSBC UK Breeze, HSBC UK Guided Rides, HSBC UK Ride Social, Let’s Ride Pop-up) – All educational courses or activities (eg coaching courses, Ride Leader courses, commissaire courses)

The decision has been taken based on Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s caution against unnecessary travel and contact with others, to take the necessary steps to protect the health and wellbeing of riders, officials, volunteers and spectators, and alleviate the risk of an additional burden on the emergency services at what is a hugely testing time.

We would strongly encourage all levels of the cycling community to join with British Cycling and the rest of the country in doing all we can to halt the spread of the virus in the midst of what is an unprecedented situation, however we recognise that this news will be disappointing, and potentially worrying, for some.

British Cycling chief executive Julie Harrington said: “This was not a decision taken lightly and it is one we have taken in close cooperation with our colleagues at Scottish Cycling and Welsh Cycling.

“We fully understand and appreciate the financial, social and community impact that this suspension could have, and we are working now to ensure that cycling is in the best possible health once the suspension can be lifted.

“As I’m sure everyone can appreciate, these are truly unprecedented circumstances, and while we will be doing all we can to retain a sense of normality and continuity, it may take some time to return to full capacity as an organisation and as a sport once this situation has been resolved.

“We will continue to update our members with more information, and will be doing everything within our power to support those who have contributed to the rich cycling culture that this country boasts.”

Saturday rides

Starting from the 6th April there will be two Saturday rides leaving from Cotswold Cycles:
9:30am – 35/40 mile café ride 15/16mph
10:30am – 20mile intro ride ~12mph

See you there! And for Saturday 6th April only
5pm – A one off ride to celebrate the birthday of the The Revolution Cafe! If you can’t make the ride please drop in from 6pm!

Club Kit Order

The order window is now open and there’s good news… the caps now come in white and even pink!

The window is open from now until Sunday the 3rd March and orders will arrive early April. Throughout February we’ll have some sizes to try on after the ride if you’re unsure on sizing. Otherwise, here’s a link to the sizing guide:

Autumn Ambler Routes

The Autumn Ambler routes have been have been finalised and are as follows:

30mi route

50mi route

75mi route

Please remember that the route will not be marked and it will be the rider’s responsibility to navigate themselves.

Hope to see many of you there. It will be a great day and we will be raising funds for a great cause

Club emails and GDPR

As we align our contact preferences with new data protection (GDPR) law, only members registered via the online British Cycling tool will receive club emails in future, including group ride details. The old website that includes our distribution lists is being phased out and all data will be deleted.

If you aren’t yet a member and wish to join please find more information here

Important Information relating to New GDPR

Dear All

As you are aware we now have a new website www . northcotswoldcc . org . uk and with the onset of the new EU General Data protection laws becoming effective on 25th May 2018 we have decided that we will be moving away from Group spaces and the services it offers us as a club.

We will in the next couple of weeks move over to British Cycling club management. It will offer us the ability to communicate with all members as we do at present, but more importantly give us as a club the peace of mind that all data protection is adhered to correctly and offers us as a club the tools to mange the new regulations correctly.

As a consequence this means that our email system will now only send emails to Club members and those of you who are not members but are registered with Group spaces will no longer receive club information unless you join the club. If you do not wish to join then relevant information can obviously be found on our website and social media platforms, details of which are on the website.

I hope this is clear but if not or you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact me.

All the best

Cotswold Council’s map of cycle routes

Cotswold District Council’s web site includes some maps of recommended cycle routes:

“Britain’s largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty lies mostly within Gloucestershire and offers a fantastic opportunity for cycling.

The rolling hills of the Cotswolds dip gently down to the Thames in the South East with a steep scarp slope along the north western edge, providing a great variety of terrain to explore – from easy to challenging. An extensive network of country lanes link the famous Cotswold villages and market towns leading away from the hustle and bustle. There is a tremendous choice of routes with an ever changing view. Miles of bridleways and byways offer plenty of scope for mountain bikers. Ancient green lanes mixed with farm tracks are all set in the heart of beautiful Cotswold countryside.”
