The Club Rides Competition and the Role and Responsibilities of the Club Ride Secretary
There is a men’s competition for the Wessex Pint, a woman’s competition for the Cotswold Trophy and an under 18 years of age competition for the M.P. and S.J. Holliday Cup. The competition begins on November 1st and rides for 12 months, finishing on 31st October. This allows time for the three trophies that are awarded at the January club prize giving dinner to be engraved.

Club rides are all the Saturday and Sunday rides, the summer Thursday evening rides, rides like the fish and chip ride, the midnight ride and rides to the Xmas lunch and birthday tea . All members need to know when these rides are held; therefore they must appear in the newsletter or diary. They cannot be arranged ad hoc at short notice!
The points are awarded as follows – One point will be awarded for a club ride.
Everyone has had a set of Club Rules and the points system appears under the Club Ride Regulations. The Committee does have the final say.
