Meeting to discuss cycling holiday options Thursday 19th October - Alex and Paul have looked at 2 or 3 options for a Shipston CC cycling holiday in April or May next year and Chris has provided a fourth.  Dave and Tony have discussed a two week option in Mallorca
The options are:
1.  Mallorca (including option of taking part in the Mallorca 312 Sportive) and/or an extended stay up to two weeks.  If interested in doing the Mallorca 312 Sportive (3 distance options), then there is a package available.  See attached brochure from
Mellow Yellow .
2.  Spain in the Andalucian region.  Prices start from 540 Euro per week.  Various accommodation options are available.  Link to their website for more details:

Team Kit – Update from Gary – Gary now has some samples in various sizes of the winter fabric long sleeve jersey (men’s and women’s pro fit - it does not come in unisex sport fit). He is also getting some gilet samples and is intending to have all these available for people to try on before the ride next Sunday from 9am onwards; this to cover the start times of both groups. If you are not intending to be on the ride next Sunday, but would like to potentially purchase a winter jersey and/or a gilet, then you will need to contact Gary ( garygristwood54@outlook.com ) to make arrangements to visit him by next Tuesday at home to look at/try on the kit. Regarding pricing, their is some great news in that our suppliers have just launched a winter kit promotion and there is an extra 25% off the winter fabric jerseys
