Attention Women Riders

Charity Update - Tell us Your Plans

In the next few weeks, we plan to start distributing the balance of the club's Development Fund (currently about £1.2k) in accordance with the suggestions that you made in the Member Survey.

More than half of the money will go to one of the charities that provide bicycles to help communities in Africa and some will go to a local youth cycling scheme. We'll use the rest to support members' sponsored rides.

If you plan to do something extraordinary for a good cause later this year, let us know by the end of May and we may be able to help you. For more details, click here.

Kalas Kit

We are pleased to be able to announce that we have chosen Kalas to be an additional supplier for Sussex Nomads Club Kit, after requests to have a more modern race fit oriented kit supplier. Initially Kalas kit will be orders only, but we will still continue to stock and order Gear Club kit as the standard kit, which can still be ordered on the club website.

You can see the Kalas custom catalogue here - we are able to offer most of the items in all four of our current kit colour ways, though minimum order levels for some accessories will restrict us from ordering them in small numbers. 

Coming soon ... Our new website is very nearly ready for use, and you'll soon be able to order both Kalas and Gear Club kit in our sparkling new online shop. In the meantime, please use this order form Orderform3b.xlsx, and refer to this Kalas size guide in conjunction with a good old-fashioned measuring tape.

Please note that Kalas have said that they may raise their prices before the next order, so please use the current prices only as a guide.

-----------

You can view and try for size at any of the evening 10's

and in Cuckfield and Burgess Hill a month before the order deadline

-----------

 Contact Adrian 07941890575.

Next Planned order is now July 2017.

Club Runs and Come & Try It Rides

As traditional as Sunday lunch! Click here for a full club run listing, and get every Sunday off to a good start.

If you're new to group riding, our Come & Try It rides, normally on the first Sunday of the month, are for you - a gentle 12-15 mile (20-25 km) ride to join the rest of the club for coffee and cake.

NEW RIDERS click here for general information about club runs and to see the start point on a map, or click here for information about ride organistation and etiquette.

We always need RIDE LEADERS and LANTERNES ROUGES, especially for the slower-paced groups. If you can help by downloading the course and looking out for riders less experienced than you, please make yourself known at the start.

RIDE LEADERS click here for ways in which you can make your rides run more smoothly and be more satisfying for everyone.
