Thruxton Summer Series 20th May 2014
On-line entry closed at the weekend. We have since received some enquiries about entry on the day. We have around 75 spaces left and therefore expect to be able to accommodate all those who wish to race. We aim to have the signing on open an hour before the racing gets underway to avoid a queue. We expect a similar situation for our other races but will post on a Monday with the situation for each meeting.
Club Ride 5th April
A reminder that our easy road ride starts this weekend. Meet at the shop for 10.00am for 10-15 miles of gentle pedalling. This ride is suitable for all abilities, you just need a road bike and a helmet. So why not come and have a go and see what a group ride is like?
Specialized Tyre Amnesty March 29th–April 30th
For a limited time we are running a fantastic offer from Specialized. Part-exchange your old worn-out tyres against a heavily discounted selection from the Specialized range (both road and MTB tyres are included). This offer is only available in-store and we have limited stocks. Customers must buy a pair of tyres and are limited to one pair of road and one pair of MTB tyres each. The tyres included in the promotion are the Purgatory Control, Ground Control, SW Turbo Tread and the new All-Condition Armadillo Elite II. An example of the discount – the S Works Turbo normally has an RRP of £50 each but is £30 in this offer. Last year we held the helmet amnesty and had many disappointed customers who did not look to buy until it was too late. So don’t delay if you want a cracking deal on some new tyres.
