Chilly weather fails to deter Easter Bunny cyclists

Sunday morning saw the third consecutive Easter Bunny Treasure Hunt staged by the Stokes Cycling Club.

The weather might not have been as good as last year, and the numbers might not have been setting records, but a good day was had by all.

Many people from the local community joined in, looking for answers to the Easter quiz on the way round the family-friendly 3-mile course in the heart of Bradley Stoke.

I spoke to Jo, a member from the Stokes Cycling Club, who told me that the course was friendly and “suitable for all ages”.

People were able to start the course when they wanted and the competitor or team who had the most answers correct when they had finished the course won a chocolate egg.

As well as the course and the quiz, competitors were able to get their bike checked by Bike Fix Bradley Stoke, run by Richard Burton, who makes a living of fixing bikes within the community.

The Stokes Cycling Club runs different bike rides for varying ages and abilities throughout the year and can be contacted via their website.

Football: Bradley Stoke Town FC

Bradley Stoke Town FC's B Team.

Despite the backlog of fixtures, only one Saturday team was in action at the weekend as the First Team, A Team and Reserves were all out of action because of Easter.

That left the B Team, who played at Long Ashton in a match that saw a poor performance leave them with a 3-0 defeat on their hands – three sloppy goals that the defence could have done better with.

After the game, manager Steve Kerton told me that he could work on his young side that are fairly new to playing 11 a side football at an adult level.

Rugby: St Mary’s Old Boys RFC

The First XV played their match at Dursley, which had been cancelled due to the weather last week. They lost 17-10. This result leaves them mid-table, but with only 6 points separating them and the bottom. With a local derby against top of the league Frampton coming up next week, they will need to get focused.

    As this event happened on Sunday, do you think the organisers will be taking down the signs associated with it soon(Laminated A4 size)? They were still adorning various lamp posts and bollards yesterday.
