CS Grupetto

We are a little bit different to most clubs in that we\'re primarily a group of friends who socialise off the bike, but we happen to share a common interest in cycling and cyclesport. We are based in Putney and have regular weekend rides out to Windsor and the Surrey Hills, as well as occasional trips elsewhere.

We have a wide variety of cycling interests amongst club members, from track riding to road racing, and sportives to bike polo. Several of our members have their race licences, and we\'re represented in every category including Elite

We regularly travel further afield to enjoy some of the classic races – this year quite a few of us have ridden the Tour of Flanders and Paris Roubaix sportives, and then watched the pros follow our tyre tracks. We also try and get to see the Ghent and Berlin six day track events.

At the core of the club ethos is a desire to enjoy good rides with good friends.

CS Grupetto Vs Rollapaluza CC

Grupetto vs Rollapuluza

The 2011 inter-club championships between C.S. Grupetto, and Rollapaluza CC will take place on 13 august at 2:00 (as long as the re-surfacing doesn’t put a halt to proceedings). Get the date in you diaries!

Format for the day will be pretty simmilar to last year, with all the normal scratch, points, and devils etc, but also with some sprints, and team pursuits thrown in for good measure.

No race license is required, and obviously no BC points will be on offer. This showdown is purely for boosting peoples egos, and bragging rights at the pub. It would also be a great oppertunity for club memebers who don’t ride a the track too often to have a stab at some racing in a freindly enviroment.

Last years event was great fun, we had a great turn out of both racers, and spectators from both clubs, so lets see if we can do the same again this year.

More details and a programme of racing will follow shortly.
