MEETING REMINDER

Thursday 25th April

Monthly Meeting: AGM followed by talk on the ‘M25 Ride’

The AGM should be relatively swift and painless – once you have volunteered to help! See notice elsewhere in the newsletter. After the coffee break we will have an illustrated talk from Doug Nevell about his cycle route that mirrors the M25 round London. Doug has led groups on this ride several times, including one from Barnet Cyclists, and without cycling on the hard shoulder! All welcome.

Meet: 8pm Carey Hall, Trinity Church Centre, Nether Street, North Finchley N12

EXTRA RIDE: Sunday 31st March – To Hertford

Ride leader: Ray Thorn

Meeting Reminder

Thursday 28th March

Monthly Meeting: Auction Night

PLEASE LOOK OUT THINGS TO BRING AND DONATE TO THE AUCTION. AND REMEMBER TO BRING SOME MONEY TO BID FOR SOME TIP-TOP ITEMS!

After a quick bit of business, and a coffee break, it will be auction time. This is a fundraising night where you can truly ‘recycle’ things you no longer need. The emphasis should be on cycle related items – but other things (in good condition, no tat) can also be offered. Proceeds to group funds. Please take away any unsold items that you bring.

All welcome.

Meet: 8pm Carey Hall, Trinity Church Centre,
Nether Street, North Finchley N12
