Flat Section News

After 34 Trudges, at two per year, Cally has decided to take a rest on this September’s event and cancel it until next Spring (Easter Sunday) when normal service will be resumed.  This Autumn’s fixture, currently listed as September 25th, will disappear from the calendar only to be replaced by the most welcome return of the Essex–Suffolk Border Ride, more details on that may follow.


We’ve dreamt up destinations for the rest of our monthly meetings in 2016.  We also have details of all this year’s V-CC Flat Section rides.  It’s all in the calendar—but among the Flat Section’s destinations are two pubs that don’t open on Mondays … expect changes.


We’ve held the AGM and nothing has changed.  As is often the case, there was no one at the meeting who was eligible for the post of Vice-President—we’ll sort that out later.

More than two wheels

The latest idea from Maddams and Stanners is a ride for cycles with more than three wheels: tricycles, quadricycles, bicycles with sidecars or trailers, etc.  The date is 29 May 2016 … and that’s all we know at the moment (though we’d be very surprised if it didn’t start at Great Ashfield’s Lord Thurlow Village Hall).

Aims of the Society

The pursuance of cycling in the leisurely fashion of days gone by.  The appreciation and conservation of the countryside and its way of life.  The enjoyment of local public hostelries and their ales.

The D&DGCS is a sort of ‘shareware’ cycling society.  Try before you buy.  Anyone is welcome to take part in our events; come along and see if you enjoy it.
