Social nights at Boundary Park – Friday 14th

Through the winter we are going to have monthly social evenings in the bar at Boundary Park Sports Association. Come along for a drink and talk all things cycling. Past glories future plans.

The first night will be this coming Friday 14th September from 19:30, and then reverting to the first Friday in every month from October.

There will also be an opportunity to try on the new kit for size as Steve will be there with the kit samples.

Aero Night | 12 April

Such excitement here at DPCC HQ. Hot on the heels of Swish and Chips (which didn’t suffer at all from being Swish and Pizza in the end), we’re pleased and proud to present: Aero Night.

Join us on April 12 from 6 pm for an evening at Mountain Mania Cycles in Didcot to eat the metric ton of aerated chocolate I’ve currently got in my car boot, enjoy your club discount, and hear from our two guest speakers (from about 7 ish): Mark Harvey from Take3 will talk about bike fit, and Xavier Disley founder of Aerocoach will talk about taking aero even further.

Elbows in, people!

Swish and chips social: Brightwell pavilion 23 march 6 pm

All welcome for a social evening with a difference.

As everyone knows, one cyclist’s pile of disused things is another cyclist’s treasure trove. Therefore, from 6pm on Thursday 23 March, please attend Brightwell Pavilion with all the things from your garage/wardrobe/kitchen/bookshelves/spare room/cupboard under the stairs that have anything to do with cycling but that you (and perhaps your dear family) don’t have the time to love.

There will be two tables: free to a good home, and items you’ve labelled with a price and your name.

We’ll dispatch someone on a chipshop run to ensure no-one flags, and we can rummage and negotiate long into the night.

What the well-dressed rider is wearing

Just a reminder that the DPCC kit (as worn by Gareth Davies for his recent CX podium, well done G!) is in stock at Mountain Mania in Didcot. They currently have lots of pairs of arm and leg warmers in stock, plus the gilets that everyone likes, bibshorts in all sizes (I know we’re not all double-hard, but you could wear them on the turbo) and jerseys in all sizes except small and medium. If you’d like a size that isn’t in stock, or XXS or XXL, please pop in and let Mountain Mania know so they can request it in the next order.


We at Didcot Phoenix are so far ahead of the curve, we can’t even see the curve any longer, and we believe socks are where it is at. ticcc-socksWe’ve found some posh winter merino socks that match our kit, and if 20 of us would like them, we can do a bulk order and save at least 15%: £16 a pair. That’s £8 per foot. Email (or get your mum to email*) with your size by Friday 9th December if you would like a pair. We’ll only order if there are 20 of us (that’s 40 feet, for those of you working in imperial).

*mummy secretary, whom many of you met at the Barbury Bash, is a whizz with the internet these days, and it may be that your parents are similarly proficient and love you enough to buy you a present.
