21.10.2022 Online membership

Those of you that have tried to join or renew membership for the last few days will have found their card declined.  We are very sorry about this.  A failiure in the security check system following upgrade of the 3D Secure process led to a total failure of all transactions.  Ultimately this was traced to incorrect settings which also explained previous difficulties wih some Mastercard paymanet.  This has now been resolved and transactions are once again being processed correctly.  It looks as if the issue with mastercard may also have been solved.

27.07.2022 Volunteers at Banbury

The 2022 Banbury Run was a success in many ways:

· Start-up of this historic event post Covid.

· Six out of 7 entries were electronic – with only 1 in 7 choosing paper

· Run with 40 volunteers without the involvement of ‘Allen House’ for the first time in many years. Twenty of the volunteers are new to the event, twenty are long time helpers who do not participate in the ride.

· An incident free run with a Safety Manual and Risk Assessment as backup.

By focussing on a simpler to administer event using modern technology we have greatly reduced the dependence on Allen House staff and reduced the level of resource subsidy that the wider Club would have had to make towards running the Banbury Run this year.
