CTC Peterborough

Postby JT » 16 Sep 2009, 4:19pm

I'm pleased to announce that CTC Peterborough have launched their new website today.

http://www.ctcpeterborough.org.uk

If you are a local member or are interested in joining, please take a look at the site and perhaps even complete our survey.

It's early days but there are plans to expand the site and make it relevant for all Peterborough's cyclists. However, the first priority is to get a regular weekend ride organised for our existing members.

An inaugural meeting will be held on Sunday February 28th at 10am in the Ridgeway room at Longthorpe Village Hall.

The purpose of the meeting is to elect a committee for CTC Peterborough.

The meeting will last no longer than one hour and (depending on the weather) there will be a short group ride afterwards.

That would be great. I don't really have any experience with formal committees and that so some moral support would be nice.

Neither of my local councillors can make it although one of them isn't really that local anyway.

What we need is a committee putting together to produce a 'way forward' guide for "setting up your MG's website, forum, mail lists, blogs and other digital media for dummies" :wink:

There are loads of CTC bobs out there with plenty of good ideas for this - just need to cherry pick the best of it and translate it into a form that the not-so-experienced-in-IT can easily follow and use for their MG. It's my experience that, despite the common misconception of the fuddy-duddy image, lots of CTC people are keen to exploit these new technologies but are hampered by not knowing where to start with a subject that seems to have a big learning curve and a secret language all of its own.

CTC Peterborough has two rides organised this weekend.

On Saturday 22nd we're setting off from Norman Cross (the car park behind the hotel) and heading for BUNS at New Lodge Farm in Bulwick. The ride starts at 9am, the total distance is around 40 miles and we should be back by 2pm.

On Sunday afternoon, there is a shorter, easy ride to Deeping St. James. This one starts from Thorpe Meadows (by the rowing club) at 1pm and we'll be welcomed for tea and cakes at The Old Bakery before heading back. Total distance of just under 20 miles.

For details of all our rides, see our website:
