On Saturday 19th February, CUCC held another fantastic Alumni Dinner at Jesus College, Cambridge. Despite the best efforts of Storm Eunice and National Rail, 47 attendees, including alumni from the 1980s up until the 2020s, and the current CUCC Committee, made it along for a delightful evening of good food and reminiscing.
The evening started off by sharing images of CUCC throughout the years and a great game of “that’s me!” (with bonus points for being in an ugly skinsuit or on Spinergy wheels) as everyone filtered in undeterred by the wind. The Head Butler then took great pleasure in breaking up all the conversation and greetings between long-lost friends with the gong to commence the meal.
Plenty of stories from CUCC’s past were shared over the three courses, and as someone relatively new to the club, it was great to hear that not much has changed in the last few decades; we still love to sprint for the Cambridge town sign and dish out the pain on each other on Sunday morning ride, but we are all still united by a passion for bikes!
I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone that came along to the dinner and for making the evening so wonderful, and to this year’s committee for everything they do to help make CUCC happen. To all those who enjoyed the evening so much that they enquired, we intend the Alumni Dinner to be an annual occasion and hope to see you again next year, if not before.
