2018 - Welsh Weekend in Llandysul

Saturday 27th January – Awards Night

Saturday 27 Jan. You’re coming to Awards Night. Why?

1) Watching Richard collect his own bodyweight in silverware* is always a blast.
2) We’ve got extra-special guest Rachael Elliott (fastest female 10 in 2017, fastest female 30 EVER, world Brompton champion, Zwift Academy finalist and inaugural world CVR winner) coming to hand out our trophies and do a Q&A with President Tim. Arrive early to avoid the media scrimmage.
3) Unconfirmed reports of a quiz for Ron’s table to win.

Get your menu choices in via this lovely link: Menu link

*no actual silver was harmed in the making of DPCC trophies

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.

Awards Awarded at 2016 Awards Evening

A great night was had by the club members that attended the awards evening at The Steventon House Hotel on Saturday evening. Many thanks to our Chairman Tim for presenting the many awards and to Simon Evans for organising such a great venue, meal and quiz. Full set of photos here.
