Important Announcement – Martin Brooks

We are extremely sorry to report that Martin Brooks, Editor of The Link, passed away in early July after a serious illness. His valued contribution to Chester and North Wales CTC will be sorely missed. Our thoughts are with Sarah, Martin's partner, and his family at this difficult time.

Many thanks to Janet Jones who will be our new Link Editor. Please send articles for future additions of the magazine to her at

The Link - sample page

The topical magazine 'The Link' is available to all members and friends of Chester and North Wales CTC and represents the needs of the membership by means of membership participation. It's normally published THREE times per year and is just filled with interesting tips, reports, challenges and experiences from the membership. It's your voice and 'The Link' is just the platform for everyone to air their views, opinions, improvements and complaints (Letters to the Editor?).

The membership also tell us about their events and travels, and to let everyone in on those little technical and 'common sense' tricks that our older companions have always taken for granted (Tech Tips in every edition).

Now, it's vital that we get as many topics as possible because everyone has their own favourite subject. You don't need to be an eloquent writer, just write what you're comfortable with and I can always rewrite it, fill it out or do what it takes to get it into a format suitable for the printers.

I ride with several groups during the week and every time people tell me what they've done in the past, what events they've been on, what bikes they've had and what challenges with bike failures etc. So please just jot down a few notes or write a few paragraphs and we will publish it so the whole membership can benefit, have a laugh or be amazed!

So ... subscribe to the 'The Link', then you can have your say. Send all articles and photographs in pretty well any format including hand written to the Editor for consideration for inclusion.
