Newsletter 2 – 4th April 2019

Hi Everybody

Bookings are now open for our annual 45th New Forest Cycling Week the first one taking place in 1975.

By going to our web site this will show you the link into the special page of the Avon Tyrrell web site for you to make your bookings. For people who have not been to the rally before our website will also give you background information and many photos.

Telephone booking direct is possible with Avon Tyrrell Telephone:- 01425 672347 (advise you are booking for the rally)

Electric Hook Ups. Please telephone Avon Tyrrell direct to reserve a hook up.

Spread the word….

Whether you are a family with children, with a group of friends or a single person, I am sure you will find the rally very sociable with everybody quickly making new friends having a common interest in cycling. We need to encourage more people to come to the rally, so please spread the word amongst your local cycling club, family, friends, work colleagues etc. Your social media is now a good way to get the word out to your contacts.

As you will be aware our rally takes place during the first week of the school holidays and is a prime time for all campsites in the New Forest, all campsites for the same time last year were fully booked 2 months in advance. We are therefore very privileged to continue to have exclusive use of the rally field. However this I feel will only continue providing we show we are able to keep sufficient campers coming to the rally, for the Avon Tyrrell director to justify this exclusive use for future years.

Please also remember we still receive a substantial discount for our camping fees from their normal high season prices.

Unlike other Cycling Uk and Tandem Rallies we also do not charge a registration fee for each person.

This years activities will follow the same pattern as previous years.

  • Barn Dance on the Sunday evening with a free wine and cheese at the interval.
  • Monday night AGM with wine and cheese afterwards
  • Tuesday Fun time trial around camp site for youngsters and teenagers
  • Wednesday Activities with Avon Tyrrell Instructors. See booking forms
  • Thursday Isle of Wight groups get together to travel
  • Friday BBQ
  • During the week members also arrange games and fun the children.

Look forward to seeing you all at the rally.

Happy and safe cycling

Kind regards

Geoff Clark

Secretary/Rally site organizer
