Club Social and get together at Compo’s in Holmfirth.

Tuesday 6th September for about 8pm.

It’s getting nearer to the end of August and closer to September, which can only mean the end of the season is coming up for the Tuesday evening rides.

As usual club tradition the last ride of the Tuesday evening season will be a ride out to Compo’s in Holmfirth for a social get together over a great fish ‘n’ chip supper, or any other meal of your choosing.
All are welcome, even if you don’t do a Tuesday evening ride or if you want to meet us all there without the ride. Partners/wifes/husbands or other non cycling friends are welcome.

We’re booked in at Compo’s for about 8pm.

The ride itself will be setting off from Gynn Lane in Honley soon after 7pm.

After the meal we make our own way home or if you are unsure where we are I will escort you back to the ride start in Honley.
If you can let me know you will be coming to Compo’s by a quick comment on this post (such as count me in) I will make sure Compo’s expect us all. Or let me know at next weeks ride.

Compo’s are ready and have already been warned about our visit.
See yer there if not before.

I think it’s been another great Tuesday Evenings Rides season.

The next joint ride with Calderdale CTC is on 11 September. It is car assisted. Reid Anderson is co- ordinating this and he needs to have an idea of numbers. If you would like to attend, meeting point to start will probably be Brighouse and a van for bikes may be hired if needed. If you have spare capacity in your car that would be useful to know. So Huddersfield CTC members please click LIKE if you intend to come along. We had a total of 25 riders on the last joint ride. More details of the ride will follow soon but Reid is thinking of a flatish route and a lunch stop at Chatsworth.

Well it was a very warm muggy evening and not one for riding up hills. But it's Tuesday and there was 10 of us out to enjoy the lumps and bumps of this evenings ride. It's not a long one but a cracking and very enjoyable route made better by the good company.

Steve Randerson A nice ride with some good lumpy bits
