So to round up whats been going on with us this season.
In March we recruited Tom as our web content manager and sales assistant. He is slowly working his magic on both www.performancecycles.co.uk and www.performancecycles.cc (the shop and the club site). The general idea is for customers and club members alike to be able to log in to the shop to check stock availability and purchase items that are competitively priced – as well as getting your club discount (15% off RRP for club members).
A little bit about Tom. Tom is 27 and currently lives in Gloucester with his wife. Tom is trying to get back on his bike after a nasty cycling injury and he is currently planning to cycle to work from Gloucester over the winter to keep/hopefully find his fitness. He will be a regular on the Saturday morning club rides and will always be happy to help – unless it’s raining… Tom hates the rain!
In May we hosted the first stage of The Cotswold League Road Race in South Cerney, loads of you came to the rescue and helped us out by marshaling. For that we are truly thankful. We were lucky enough to hold the first Women’s only race in the Cotswold League, in which Rebecca Waters finished 2nd and Harriet Guest Finished 5th. In the Men’s race, Joe Barry finished first and took the leaders point’s jersey. Overall a great result for Performance Cycles! This is Joe winning in South Cerney.
In July we hosted our Tour De France BBQ – where we watched the individual time trial being won by the Australian Rohan Dennis. Fortunately the sun was shining and the sausages weren’t too burnt! Apparently the charring adds flavour?
And here we are in August! We are excited to be heading into the Cyclocross season – with new bike’s available from Kenisis (Crosslight T5 Disc and the CX Race). These will be available as of mid September 2015 and can either be bought as a frame set or a full custom build.
