Thames Valley Centre Events

Most of our events during the year are club runs. All We organise frequent runs to interesting venues, mostly on weekends but some mid-week as well. Our runs are well controlled by the Run Leader and Back Marker with a comfortable pace aimed to suit the riders and bikes. We also join up with other Centre’s runs and will lead our group to the meeting point. For dates of planned runs see below.

Get on Jon’s email list and join us on a run, you won’t regret it.

From time to time we also organise events mostly on Club nights at the Cherry Tree, such as our popular Question nights on technical Velo matters of guest speakers – see Events List below.

2021 Events List

Coronavirus update 13th January 2021

We are still not able to have any club meetings or runs until further notice due to the Covid Rules – we will continue to monitor the changing situation and Jon will email if there any changes that affect us. We are hopeful for this year and once the restrictions are lifted the calendar of events for 2021 can be set out below.

Mid week runs

We will aim to have at least one per month hopefully more from Spring to Autumn and we have a small team of volunteers to try to achieve this and the first run in April is currently being planned. Generally confirmed within a weeks notice to fit in with weather and member availability. Any changes or cancellation will be via our email circulation list so contact Jon Dunsdon to get on his list.
