Latest News


We know all the dates for our monthly meetings in 2016, but we don’t necessarily know where we’re going yet.  Our monthly meeting for December was scheduled for Christmas Eve (being the Thursday nearest to the full moon) but an attack of realism has intervened and we realised that no one would go.  The next idea was to make it the next nearest Thursday to the full moon … but that turned out to be New Year’s Eve.  The final idea was to give up.

Flat Thing

We have made up dates for the V-CC Flat Section’s Monday evening meetings assuming they’ll continue to be on the last Monday of each month.  In December 2016, the last Monday is Boxing Day, when there’s normally a Flat Section ride during the day, so we’ll wait for more news on that one.  Rumour has it that this year’s Flat Section Boxing Day Ride won't be on Boxing Day, but on Sunday 27th.


We've heard several forecasts that it’ll be a hard winter this year.  It could all be empty promises but, if it does come true, it’ll be Snow Ride time: if there’s snow on the ground on a Sunday, call Stowmarket 673493 to haggle about a starting time & place and a destination.

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.
