Members of CTC, the national cycling charity, Tayside, incorporated their annual general meeting into their bimonthly cycle last week.
Leaving from one of their regular starting points in Dundee, a dozen hardy souls rode along unseasonably snow-covered back roads to reach Eassie and Nevay Hall where the AGM was held. If proof were needed of the sub-zero conditions, it was re-iterated when the cyclists passed a man dressed in a penguin suit, along a quiet country road.
David Shaw was elected chairman, Ron Harrow was treasurer and Pat Harrow continues in post as secretary. The cyclists were treated to a warming soup and scones lunch following the meeting.
With a national upsurge in interest in cycling, CTC Tayside welcomes new members from throughout Angus. They offer leisurely-paced regular cycle runs of varying lengths on quiet roads, in a sociable and safe environment.
Runs are usually between 20 and 50 miles in length every two weeks throughout the year usually starting in Dundee and heading towards Angus.
