Club goes out in ‘No Lycra’ shocker

Ruthin Cycling Club hosted it’s first annual christmas dinner at Ruthin Rugby club on Friday 11th December.  Circa 40 members and partners enjoyed a convivial evening of socialising and copious* food and drink.





The evening also saw the first club awards ceremony and a first outing from our own resident Dylan Thomas impersonator.

*the caterers may have over estimated the appetites of a group of cyclists 🙂
