Durham city Velo Christmas Club rub to Causey Arch December 9th 2018

We are planning to have a social Christmas club run to Causey arch café on Sunday December the 9th.

There will be a Tracks and trail ride and a road ride both meeting at Causey Arch café, both will leave from Broom Park country park 10.00am planning to be at the café by 12.00 noon, the Tracks and Trail ride is 62k /38 miles , The road ride will be a little longer to allow both groups arrive at the café at the same time.

We have booked the café but it is important that we have an idea of numbers to allow them to cater for us, please contact the club or me directly to let us know if you are going  before Friday the 30th of November and what ride you will be doing

Event Details:


Saturday 6th October club Run cancelled

Due to the main Saturday leaders being away and Jeff’s medical condition we have had to cancel the faster and further ride.

If you still want to go out please post in the forum that your going out, meet at 9 at the usual starting point and decide where to go.


We reserved 20 places for the Christmas party night on the 9th December at the Kings Lodge.

Details –

Last night at the social we found out that that night is now sold out so any more than 20 would not be accommodated.

We need to know in the next couple of days who wants to come so we can plan if we need an alternative.

No need to pay anything just yet but please get in touch via Facebook or on to let us know if you intend to come.

Just to clarify this is an event for Partners too

No Sunday road ride this weekend

As Im wanting to do the gravel run to Pedalling squares on Sunday Im not able to lead the road run hence none planned.

If someone wants to lead a ride then shout up, you could always take the road to Pedalling Squares and meet the Gravel run there.



Sunday Gravel ride destination correction

The destination published previously for the gravel ride was wrong, Sorry.

Destination is not Parkhead but is Hownsgill.

Road ride will be heading tot he same cafe to hopefully arrive at the same time.

Events on website and facebook have been amended.


This weeks club runs

All club runs have been scheduled for this week and can be found here

Sundays social no drop ROAD ride starts at Broom Park Picnic area at the same time as the Gravel ride and the destination cafe is the same.

The route back is subject to change once I can figure a better way that isnt all main roads.

Hope to see you out and about
