Eeer Wiggo!​

image A few shots from the event on May 16 th. What a day for the area and City Road Club Hull. A totally free chance to see this icon of British cycling brought bigger crowds than some of Hull City games, well at least next seasons! The man did us proud with one of the fastest ever tens in the UK but not quite fast...Read More »

Right to be on the roads.​

Right to be on the roads. Nice little piece in the Guardian. Hope some of the gobby drivers out there read it!   When a driver scowls at a passing cyclist and shouts: “You have no right to be on the road - you don’t pay road tax!” are they right? No, according to advisers at HM Revenue & Customs and the Treasury. Firstly, “road tax” does not exist, and has...Read More »

Club discount.​

image City Road Club members shopping at Cliff Pratt Cycles are reminded that they offer us a 10% discount. You need to mention this to whoever serves you so that it can be applied before the staff finalise your bill on the till! Ian has advised his staff about this so there should be no issues. Just ask!

Rain stopped play.​

Rain stopped play. The terrible weather that developed on Friday created sufficient standing water on the V718 which in turn became heavy spray meant our Good Friday Classic 10 had to be postponed. Hopefully a date later in the year will allow a re-run. In such situations rider safety is paramount. The Easter eggs we had for raffle prizes and as helper gifts were taken to Castle Hill...Read More »
