Members of Thame Cycling Club celebrated their 5th anniversary at a Christmas party held at the new Thame Town Cricket Clubhouse.
This was a double celebration with the club announcing their alliance with Thame Town Cricket Club which will become the new home for the cyclists from January 1.
This is a major development for the cycling club that has become a key constituent of the local community.
In the last five years the club has grown and now offers not only local supervised club rides to suit a variety of abilities, but many events and trips to different locations across Europe. These included trips to Majorca and the Pyrenees, and participation in a 24-hour race at the famous Le Mans circuit in France.
Iain Smith, chairman, who cut the cake, said: “This is an exciting time for the club as we enter the next stage of our development. We are fortunate now to have a ‘home’ that we can operate from and will now offer more services to the local community.”
