Social & Annual Events
Social Evenings on the 3rd Thursday of every month
Worcester St John’s Cycling Club Social Evenings are usually held on the on the third Thursday of every month from 7pm at the characterful Worcester Auto Centre(WAC) Motor Cycle Club. There’s parking and good cycling paths via the canal and Perdiswell Park. All club members are welcome to enjoy the bar – hot and cold drinks, alcoholic and soft, crisps snacks etc. and very reasonably priced.
Occasionally there is an activity or guest speaker – keep a look out on our facebook page to see whats planned. If there is something you’d like to see at a future social evening, we’re open to suggestions, if not, just come along for a chat.
WAC is at Tower Buildings, Perdiswell Park, Worcester WR3 7NW- a little tricky to find first time- just look out for a white village hall style building with a tower at one end.
You can also find the location on Google Maps and a map is also shown below.
