RUGBY Racing Cycling Club reflected on a very successful 2012 when holding their AGM at Dunchurch Village Hall.

General Secretary James Heaton reported on a highly successful 12 months for the club with a total of 1060 entries being made in the club time-trial series, the largest participation numbers in the Midlands for the second year running.

Dave Aires, Membership Secretary, reported that membership had been maintained at over 100 members, 85 of whom had competed in club events.

In addition, the club holds an annual Open ten-mile time trial in July and last year's event attracted an entry of 80 riders despite the distraction of the Olympic Cycling Road Race being held on the same day.

Officers elected for 2013 were Chairman: Bruce Townsend, General Secretary: James Heaton, Membership Secretary: Dave Aires, Treasurer: Laurie Bird, Racing Secretary: Rob Tobin, Time Trial Secretary: James Heaton, Open Time Trial Secretary: Laurie Bird, and Press Secretary: Alan Saitch. Other committee members elected were Craig McKee, Tim Hastie, Peter Wright, Matt Plant, Victoria Plant, Russell Morris and Naomi Leugs.

Any keen cyclist who wish to join a friendly and successful club can contact Dave Aires on 01788 335252 or visit www.rugbyrcc.org.uk for more.
