News . . . by date order, most recent at the top - always have a look at the Forum for Ride Updates (on the day), announcements and other information.
A subtle change has been made to the Events Calendar block in the RH column of the website - it now shows past events . . . you can scroll back through the months and see events back to 1 September 2015.
The main detailed Event listings will continue to be just forward dates (events are archived 2 days after they occur)
Air Ambulance Donation
In accordance with the club's policy on surplus funds charitable donations are made at the start of each year.
The beneficiary for 2017 is the Coventry & Warwwickshire Air Ambulance Service with a cheque for £1,000 - in recognition of the valuable service it provides to cyclists and others (including two HoECC members in the recent past)
