Camcycle magazine dates

We welcome members’ help with our magazine, including writing articles, taking photos and laying out content. If you’d like to get involved, please follow Cyclescape thread 4264 and 4266 or email contact@camcycle.org.uk.

Copy deadline for the winter issue of the magazine is Sunday 20 October (theme: Expanding Horizons).

Magazine distribution will begin on 25 November. Members organise the newsletter distribution, putting them into envelopes and then getting them delivered. More volunteers would be a great help. Please email contact@camcycle.org.uk if you can support this work.

REGULAR Cambridge cycle rides

CTC Cambridge holds up to six rides a week in the countryside around Cambridge. All welcome. Read more on page 41 or visit ctccambridge.org.uk.

#CamRideHome rides start at 6pm on the last Friday of the month from outside The Mill pub on Mill Lane, Cambridge. No one takes responsibility for organising it so it just depends on who turns up. Usually a few do and they enjoy a one-hour leisurely tour of the city finishing up at a pub. Follow the hashtag on Twitter and enjoy.
