Hethersett Velo Club has launched a re-branding and ‘rejuvenation drive’ to bolster its numbers beyond its current 45 cyclists.

Andy Cook, rider leader, said the club had members aged from 17 to 75, and they went out for rides on Sunday mornings and Tuesday evenings.

He said: “We want to encourage people to come along and enjoy cycling in a group. Our motto is nobody ever gets left behind.

“We may well become Hethersett and Wymondham Velo Club as half of our current membership comes from Wymondham,”

Some members, including Rodney Arbon and Alistair Barrows, also take part in charity bike rides.

For more information, email Anneke Cook at hethersettveloclub@hotmail.co.uk or look up HethersettCyclingClub on Facebook.
