"The club aims to encourage new members at every opportunity. Following the success of Team GB and a number of British riders at many levels this year, we are keen to share the benefits and experience the club has to offer to a new generation and also to those interested in returning to cycling. We will be running a series of additional events of this kind, with the next one pencilled in for late October 2012."This initiative complemented the weekly club run which saw a number of more experienced riders take on a longer run to Hoddesdon.

"We have seen a lot more interest in the club following the success of Team GB in the Olympics and Paralympics. As a club we are always open to new members and this is an ideal way of capitalising on that. Existing club members have a wealth of knowledge and experience on what to ride, where and how to keep bikes in tip top shape. This is a great opportunity for people to come and have a go."
