Well the celebrations are over, and every cyclist is now looking forward to the summer months of longer days, dry roads, and sitting outside cafes in the sunshine.

If you enjoy road cycling, and have wondered about cycling with a club, we have the trial run just for you. Every alternate Sunday we run a 23 mile Sunday Intro cycle, which allows you to try out group cycling with others. And of course we stop along the way to enjoy some coffee, scones and craic at No 14 at The Georgian House in Comber.

If you're interested, there are more details about the route here: https://www.strava.com/clubs/110633/group_events/550182

And if you want to schedule a ride, contact us on Messenger, or email titanicquartercc@gmail.com

We look forward to meeting up with you.

We said we'd get back to you with the fundraising amount from our Charity Quiz and Awards Night, and it is good news. On Friday we all raised a grand total of £820 towards the club's nominated charity Disability Sport NI.

Thanks everyone who donated, contributed to the raffles, and were there to celebrate the club's 5th birthday. Just like these two, Alex and Keith, who have been there since those early days of TQCC.
