New shorter rides have started - all welcome
The new shorter club rides are introducing a wide range of new riders to riding in a group, and some have already decided to try the full clubruns, which they are now enjoying. As the colder weather is on its way there are no more in the calendar, however if you are interested please get in touch and we will organise some. See the calendar tab for details of other dates. If anyone would like to lead one of these rides please let us know, and generally they should range from 10 - 20 miles and these will continue one most weeks as we go into spring and summer, see the calendar for full details. These rides are OPEN TO ALL, you do NOT need to be a club member and each ride will be at the speed of the SLOWEST rider. Full details can be found on the club calendar. Ideally if you could let us know you are planning to ride, although you are welcome to turn up on the day or if you have any questions then please contact Malc.
These events are possible for anyone with a bike that can cope with a bit of off road riding. Most events have a mixture of cross bikes and mountain bikes, and as its run over a circuit no one can get left behind (well apart from on the first lap). The races are normally from 40 minutes to one hour (less for the younger riders). To compliment these events there will also be a few more off road rides coming up.
So if you fancy a change, why not give one of these a try. Many are local events, and there is one most weekends up to Christmas, and a few into the new year.
Please note the entry details for each event, and that if you want to score in a league series you should note the specific requirements of that league. As we are an Eastern region club, but also cose to the boundary with Central and the Lincolnshire league, you may choose to pick individual events that suit you, or compete in one league throughout the season. If you are unsure please ask.
As well as these league events we will be holding our own YOUTH ONLY cross races on 30th September, 28th October, 25th November & on 11th November there will be another GIRLS ONLY RACENIGHT, so please ride, help out, bring a friend or just help us to spread the word about these nights.
Please have a look through the spreadsheet for an excellent selection of local(ish) events.
So whether you fancy being the next cross expert like Sven Nys (left) or you think you're more of a crowd pleaser, why not give it a go?
