Peter Jackson memorial ride 9 September 2018
A huge THANK YOU to everyone who sponsored us for this year’s ride. You have helped us to secure our future for another year. Together we have raised well over £2000!
Heaton Park Runners have donated a substantial amount in memory of our friend and pilot Frank, who passed away earlier this year. We have decided to use this money to subsidise the cost of club cycling tops for our members.
More thanks to Harry who once again, has helped the club out with a large donation. Harry company, UK Rigging sets up all the fantastic light displays at music concerts and the like.
Club affiliates to Cycling UK
We’re excited to say that Bury Tandem Club has affiliated to Cycling UK, the national charity championing cycling for all. This gives us access to training, insurance and much more.
Club members can now join Cycling UK as affiliate members, or full members. Benefits include insurance, legal cover, discounts, courses and even cycle holidays.
Extraordinary General Meeting 15 January 2016
At our EGM, all members voted to approve changes to the club’s constitution. We’re updating our details with the Charity Commission (our charity number is still 1017270), but the biggest change is to our name!
Draft minutes from the AGM and EGM are now available on the Club History page.
New club tops
It’s taken us a while but we have recently received our new club tops and they are creating quite a stir, with club members appreciating the quality, features and the modern design.
The tops are mainly black and yellow, with yellow front and black panels and black side panels and sleeves. They have a hoop of black and white chequers across the chest and back. On the sleeves and on the pocket at the back, they have the Rotary International symbol, in blue and yellow, in recognition of the support we have received for the past three years from Tottington and West Bury Rotary. On the front, we have the tandem club logo. This is a black and white stylised image of two people on a bicycle with the front wheel as an eye and the rear wheel in solid black. On the back, we have the tandem club logo between the shoulder blades. Under the logo we have the club name, which is visible from the rear when we are bent over the handlebars – allowing other people to see what the club is called.
