Volunteers needed for Manchester & District Time Trials Association 100 mile TT - 1st July 2018
06 June 2018
Message from Dave Fearon, organiser of the M&D 100:

Hi all, I'm sending this plea for help to your club as you are a member of the Manchester & District Time Trials Association. The flag ship event of the association is less than one month away & I've had a few volunteers who have already come forward and offered their time to help this Year, but as you can imagine I need quite a lot of helpers for a 100 mile event. A two shift system is only fair especially for the marshalls as it is not reasonable to expect people to sit on a corner for over 6 hours and of course this adds to the burden of finding help.

This is our only remaining long time trial on Cheshire and I'm keen to keep it alive with your help, especially as it has been well supported by entrants for the past few years. So if you could reach out to your club members for help it would be very much appreciated by the M&DTTA and by myself as organiser. I look forward to receiving your response.

Kind regards,
Dave Fearon Event Organiser

Seamons Evening Road Race - Helpers Required
18 May 2018
Helpers & Marshals Wanted - Seamons Road Race - Tuesday Evening 26th June 2018.

Just a reminder that Seamons CC is once again organising a very popular 33-mile road race under the TLI Cycling rules. The racing shall start at 7pm and will be held on the Siddington circuit with the headquarters based at the Siddington Village Hall, Cheshire, SK11 9JR. As before, three age based categories of 16-44; 45-54 and 55+ shall comprise the competitive racing and to enable everything to run smoothly we need as many volunteers as possible. There are many important roles to cover… for example we require marshals on each of the circuit corners, sign-on officials, car drivers to lead each race category and last but not least we need help in providing refreshments (any cake etc. donations will be gratefully received)…the refreshments last year went down very well! To pledge any help, you can contact me either by a message through Facebook or email

Full details of all TLI Cycling membership, events and activities can be found at

Some Notes From The 2017 AGM
22 November 2017
Dear Member,

This is a brief update for anyone who, like me, was unable to attend this year's AGM. I am very grateful to David Hoyle for stepping into the role of Chairman for the evening. Teamwork!!

The meeting was attended by around 40 members. As there were no proposals affecting our Constitution submitted by the closing date, the main purpose of the night was to elect your Committee for 2018. The only Committee member who chose to stand down was our long-serving Membership Secretary, Mike Brooks. On behalf of us all, I would like to thank Mike for all the hard work and dedication he has shown during a time when the Club has experienced such a massive growth in membership. Hopefully he will still oversee our regular Wednesday evening 10s. Therefore the Committee is largely unchanged for 2018, with only exception being that John Hammond will combine the roles of Treasurer and Membership Secretary. Congratulations to Jeanette Barber who was elected to be Vice President for the next two years.

During the AoB section of the meeting the Club decided to end the practice of offering a monthly extended Social Run, and to ask the Committee to consider ways in which more of our 250+ members could be encouraged to more actively support our wide range of cycling related activities.

Many thanks to those of you who manged to attend and/or are contributing to our excellent Club in any other way.

Nigel Harrop, Chairman.
