The Gazette is your stories of what Anerley B.C does – a continuation of our 125 years of cycling history

It will soon be Autumn so I hope that you have all made the most of the summer of 2023. Over the last few Anerley Gazettes there have been a few write ups of what we as a club have been up to. This started with the Anerley Away Days in Snowdonia. Then we had two of our new members taking on cycling challenges – Warren competing in the Etape Caledonian at Pitlochry.

And in this Gazette, Nikki Bone’s four countries charity bike ride to Amsterdam. And Martin’s Whitstable ride.
I hope that more of you have done something different, other than just our club rides. If so, let us see and read about what you have been upto with a write up in the next Gazette. Tim and Sally’s adventures across the Atlantic is certainly the greatest challenge of Anerley B.C members in it’s 125+ years.
And if there is nothing else, at least some of us have been out and about savouring the English summer of 2023 – Torrential rain and 50 mph+ winds in Sussex!
