Dates for 2021 Events

14 May 2021 - President’s luncheon at the Grand Connaught Rooms
The President’s Luncheon planned for Thursday 13 May cannot happen because of ongoing requirements for social distancing. But we can still meet and will be holding a Virtual President’s Dinner on Friday 14 May 2021, starting at 19:00 on Zoom. While you will be attending from the comfort of your home, aided with the technology by your next generation, we will together enjoy all the traditions of our usual Pickwick Bicycle Club events – trumpeters, Chelsea Pensioners, admission of new members, comedian, smoking pipes and shag and of course, our traditional Club songs! It will be a unique evening, and we ask you to HOLD THE DATE of Friday 14 May at 19:00 in your diary to be there with us. Details to follow very soon…

7 October 2021 - Hampton Court Club ride for Victorian and modern machines
For older machines there is a gentle ride past Hampton Court, along the Thames towpath to Kingston, through Bushy Park for refreshments at Hampton Hill before returning to Hampton Court past the Diana Fountain. More modern machines will be guided on a leisurely ride through the Surrey countryside, achieving a few more miles than the older machines.
Following the rides there will be a Club luncheon in a local restaurant.
