Colchester Rovers Monthly Newsletter issue 1 January 2024

Well I know it is a little late but I would just like to wish all our members a very Happy New Year. Not much to report for January as weather has restricted our usual Saturday/Sunday rides but I can see from Facebook that Ray did organise a ride last Saturday. I am hoping soon to come and join the Saturday/Sunday rides at your café stop and enjoy a coffee and some cake.

Cyclo X Sunday 4th February
Simon Wilson is organizing the end of season Cyclo X relay for the Eastern Region. This is being held at the Northern Gateway Colchester on Sunday 4th February. Simon has asked for volunteers on Facebook so if you have not already volunteered and can spare some time then please contact Simon or simply come along and support the riders.
