Banbury Star Cyclists’ Club were joined by Cycling Weekly magazine to celebrate joint 125th Birthday.
Cycling Weekly, the UK’s best selling cycling magazine came to Banbury last month to celebrate a joint 125th birthday with the Banbury Star Cyclists Club and to feature the club in their 4 page ‘Ride with’ magazine feature.
Dave Nash from the magazine and around 35 club members gathered at Broadribb Cycles at 09.30am on the 12th March for a pre ride talk by ride leader Bill Ord and to be photographed for the publication.
By 10am the conditions were treacherous when Bill Ord and John Tustian led the riders out for their ride through the Cotswolds, which included tackling the famous Edge Hill.
When the riders made it to The Chandlers Arms for the mid ride stop, a special birthday cake and tea/coffee was waiting for them.
Banbury Star President, Paul Dean said, “Dave from Cycling Weekly was really complementary about the ride and how it was conducted, the members and the events we have planned for 2017. We can be proud of what we are building in Banbury.”
The celebrations were slightly belated as the club turned 125 at the end of 2016, but the event had to be postponed due to weather conditions.
Banbury Star Cyclists Club was formed in 1891 and has approximately 150 members.
