New: Club Events page

after a long absence the Blaydon Cycle Club events feed is live again, we are aware that not all of our members are on facebook so may not be able to see all of our events easily, for this we’ve enabled the export of all events to our new events page, you can bookmark this for easy reference.

Our facebook page is still and you don’t have to be a member to view the page or posts but we want to make things as accessible as possible for all.

Below is a preview of our next events which is a direct copy of the feed from the new page.

Blaydon Cycle Club

A Cycling club with a more social atmosphere, we are open to all abilities of cyclists, we are predominantly road cycling based, but we all are welcome to join. ✓We Mainly focus on road simply due to the nature of the club and the ability to cover the miles, over time we hope that we can accommodate more cyclists. We set up to bring together those who don't really 'like' the idea of a race orientated club TT/Racing etc but just want to have a laugh, a decent ride and a bit of friendly banter! ✓Our 'Main focus': road cycling - with scope to welcome and help all cyclists (MTB, XC, CX) we all have two wheels and should share a mutual respect and love for the sport. ✓To respect and appreciate what amazing routes, tracks and roads we have within such a small distance ✓To create and develop friendships through a mutual hobby ✓To welcome anyone regardless or their abilities, discipline or speed ✓To help members organize smaller rides out with others. ✓Develop ‘Ride Leaders’ who assist, plan and help create routes and rides to be shared online (.gpx files etc) ✓To develop an online 'hub' using social networks for people to chat, make friends, connect and arrange rides with fellow members ✓ To run regular 'Development Rides' (formerly 'beginners rides') to introduce people to cycling, and more so group cycling. ✓ To use social media for positive outcomes and expand our own personal networks for cycling ✓ To enter events in the UK sportive calendar with clubmates and raise money for various good causes.

All Change!

June 29, 2015 / / No comments

I’ve been sitting in front of this laptop for hours now! but some new changes for the club website are finally here. First of all you’ll notice a new banner at the top, I’ve also subtly changed the colour scheme from a generic red to the well known club red.

If you visit the site from your mobile phone you’ll also notice the website now works perfectly on mobile, any needless zooming, pinching and scrolling is no more, but if you like that kind of thing, the option is still there for you revert to desktop.

I’ve deleted a few redundant pages and working on some new content to make things that little bit nicer for you to look at. one such feature is when we order club kit, it’ll be done via a proper ‘online shop’ you’ll be to order multiple items and checkout just as you would on any other site. At the moment you’ll probably just see a pop-up message saying orders are closed. I am also working on a Blaydon ‘phonebook’ style directory so if you need to find any decent cafes we reccomend, any cycle shops or need a repair you need to go no further than your club. you’ll be to leave reviews using your social media accounts to give feedback on the shops and services, I guess what I am trying to do it Blaydon CC meets the ‘yellow pages vs trip advisor’.

A few pages may be renamed or re-ordered just to make them look that little bit tidier, it’s a long overdue spring clean that I hope gives a better impression of the club.
