Tarvin Occasional Cycling Klub (TOCK)
The Tarvin Cycling Club recently celebrated its third anniversary.
2012 was a fantastic year for the club. Not only did we cycle the normal north-west sportives, but two of our members, Roger Hones and Mark Staker, joined forces with our sponsors, Global Bikes, to take part in the 24 hour Le Mans race.
The year also saw the Club invest in a team cycling top, so if you see what appears to be 13 dalmations cycling bikes, you know it is the TOCK group! Roger, Mark, Steve Parker and Doug Highley took part in a 230 mile charity cycle ride from Birchwood to Bridgewater. The team raised over £1000 for Brainwave, who help children with celebral palsy and downs syndrome.
The group cycle each Sunday morning and in the summer months on a Thursday night.
Trips to the Alps for June have already been arranged and a three to four day tour of Wales for September and mountain bike trips are also being planned. There is also a ladies' section who cycle Friday and Sunday mornings and we always welcome new cyclists.
The ladies section recently entered the McMillan 'all-ladies' Cycletta challenge ride with Victoria Pendleton!
