• A big weekend for DCC members with the warmer weather and some popular sportives resulting in some big rides!

    Congratulations to everyone who rode Velo Birmingham. With lots of praise for both the organisation and the crowds lining the roads to offer their support, a combination of good weather and closed roads saw some impressive times and century PB’s being posted on Strava.

    A big shout out to to the group that completed a century to the Cotswolds and back, organised by our Breeze Ride Ladies Champion Saffron Small. With moral (and in some cases physical!) support provided by Paul who usually leads our Beginners and Improvers rides and logistical support provided by club “grandad” Garrick this was a huge undertaking for many of our riders, some of whom completed their first ever century ride -= a huge well done to everyone – looks like you earned that cake!

    Finally, the fast group riding today’s Sunday Social, unable to agree on a mid-ride coffee stop decided to put the matter to a vote. The resulting show of hands was emphatically in favour of carrying on without stopping but, in true parliamentary style, we failed to deliver the expected outcome and stopped for a coffee anyway! No-one was complaining too much however when the Cappuccino’s were dished out!
