Social Event Reports

Occasionally we take a break from the bike, and organise other social activities, like our regular "Members Slides" nights, or a Quiz Night where we compete against other local cycling groups.

10-Pin Bowling - 22 October 2015

On Thursday, 22nd October 2015 we took a break from cycling for a social evening, 10-Pin Bowling. 15 of us took to the lanes for a nights competition, with not a bike in sight (apart from Jim, and his "guest" rider!). As we had three lanes, the plan was for a few games in each lane, and them the highest scorers from each team playing in the "final". Well, we assembled for the final, only to be disappointed after 3 frames when the lanes were simply turned off. Apparently it was closing time, so we never found out who won,!

Christmas Meal 2012

Sunday 16th December 2012. Our Christmas Meal was again held at The Copy Nook, Bolton by Bowland, and was attended by 36 members and friends. There was time to socialise in the bar area before heading into the function room at 1:00pm for the 4 course meal. Seven members joined the morning ride, on a 22 mile route from Higherford over to the Copy Nook, on what was as good a December day as we could have hoped for, with blue skies, and even a rainbow visible over Rathmell. Richard Armstrong deserves a special mention as he took it upon…

Christmas Meal 2011

Sunday 18th December 2011. Our Christmas Meal was held again at The Copy Nook, Bolton by Bowland, and was attended by 40 members and friends. There was time to socialise in the bar area, as well as during the 4 course meal in the function room. Again the number of riders cycling to the meal was depleated this year as members from the Burnley area awoke to several inches of overnight snow. However members from the Colne area arrived at the meeting point at Higherford having not seen a single flake of snow, although they did encounter icy conditions on their…

Christmas Meal 2010

Sunday 05th December 2010 Our annual christmas meal was held again at the Copy Nook, Bolton-by-Bowland. This year the event was attended by 41 members and friends, who enjoyed a 4 course meal in our usual private function room. As always there was plenty of time to socialise during the meal, as well as before and afterwards in the bar area. Unfortunately this year, due to the very bad weather conditions and icy roads, only one member managed to cycle to the event, while others that had intended to cycle made alternative plans. We do normally have a club ride to the…
