AT the Annual General Meeting of the Cooma Cycle Club held on Tuesday August 12, Mark Robertson succeeded Peter Davis as President, Kevin Carlson took over the role of social secretary from Fiona Blyton and John Sim is now the publicity officer, taking over from Wouter Vochteloo.
Ongoing committee members are George Javurek as Treasurer and Lyndon Branscomb is the Secretary.
Cooma Cycle Club has a small membership but is very active with regular rides during the week and on weekends.
Every Monday and Thursday morning a group of riders leave from the corner of Church Road and the Snowy Mountains Highway for a social ride ending with a coffee stop in town.
Each Saturday afternoon, an extended ride takes a variety of routes ranging from 30 to 40 km and inevitably finishes with a social coffee.
When daylight saving comes around, a Wednesday afternoon ride is a pleasant way to wind down after work.
During the year there are numerous events that members attend, including the Melbourne "around the bay in a day", the MS Sydney to the Gong ride" and various challenge rides around Bright in Victoria and the Snowy challenge around Jindabyne in March. There are also impromptu activities such as a mountain bike ride from Thredbo to Lake Crackenback Resort and for something different, a cross country ski day was held recently at Cabramurra.
The club welcomes new members and emphasises that all standards of riders are welcome to participate whether on road bikes, touring bikes or mountain bikes. Anyone wanting more information may contact the Publicity officer, John Sim, on 64521365.
