Welcome Freshers (2012-2013)

Hello and welcome to the wonderful world of UOSCC!

Congratulations if you’ve just been accepted to study at Sheffield, and welcome back if you’re an old hand! I’m Ross Phelps and I’m going to be club president for the coming year (2012-13).

We are a friendly and (not insanely!) competitive club who love nothing better than a blast through the Peaks before a cheeky pint and a chat at one of our favourite pubs or the odd café stop on those long winter rides!

We have members across all disciplines of cycling, from roadies to XC and Downhill! We ride regularly at least twice a week – Wednesdays and Saturdays, but our Facebook page gives members the chance to find a riding partner any day of the week and there are always club members raring to ride!

We race Varsity, are current BUCS road champions and have members who race actively all across the country in British Cycling events as well as charity rides such as Lands End to John O’Groats and many more.

We run trips that range from a weekend’s training in Wales to bike parks and even the Manchester Velodrome to get your Chris Hoy face on!

We’re always keen for a good social and have them regularily throughout the year, ranging from a nice pint and chat about the latest racing news, to Tour and Giro socials to our EPIC lycra socials (hideously outlandish lycra REQUIRED) o there’s plenty to get stuck in to!

Come and say hi at the Sports Fair in the Octagon on Friday the 21st of September, we’ll be holding our annual Freshers Ride at 1:30 from the Arts Tower on the 26th, with our legendary Freshers Social kicking off in the evening – more details to come! We operate a strict NO HELMET, NO RIDE policy, so make sure you don’t forget your lids!

Membership is a mere £20 for the year and covers discount kit, trips and our insurance as well as access to our ROAR ticket allocations, socials and awesome trips!

See you soon!

Ross
