As reported before: we’ve dreamt up destinations for the rest of our monthly meetings in 2016.  The trouble with dreams is that you forget them ... and we can’t remember all the desinations!  The particulat problem is that in the calendar, we put Stowupland down for both July and September.  While it’s probably the July one that’s wrong, it’s a bit late to change that now, so we’ll think of something different for September.

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 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.

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.
