I love the spirit of this club!
Despite the freezing morning ride we had a great turn out for the members forum. Key points from the forum:
NBC is a unique club with rapid growth and a diverse rider group with a range of interests in both social and competitive cycling. A good number of members enthusiastically put their hands up for coordinator roles.

NBC Facebook 'Group' versus 'Page'.
The NBC Facebook 'group', which most people currently use is for posting informal rides and general cycling related topics. This can get off-topic and comes with a lot of banter, and stirring: be warned!
The NBC Facebook PAGE is like a webPAGE, and is the source for formal rides and events only. We aim to keep this tidy and specific to priority issues for the club. When you 'like' this page, you will be automatically notified of posts.
Sponsorships: the 2014 round of sponsorships are now being considered. Please email Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org with your expression of interest.
Kit design: a general consensus to keep the general colour and design elements so the existing kit does not go out of date. We love our NBC green.
A new member info kit will be developed and then coordinated by Toni Kerr.
Funding sources: memberships, racing events, fundraisers, funding grants.
