Sport England Funding Award
We are proud to announce that Sport England have awarded the club funds to promote cycling in SEVEN local secondary schools through indoor cycling with Wattbikes. This is primarily aimed at encouraging youngsters who have shown little interest in being active to participate in an indoor cycling competition within their school and then go on to represent their school in an inter schools competition. Hopefully some of these will become more interested in cycling in general, and may choose to take part in future cycling events. Also we will be hosting an inter company competition as a team event where teams will be encouraged to include at least one rider aged under 25, so if you are aware of local firms who might be interested in entering a team please let us know. If you are interested in this project or have any questions about it please contact us by clicking on the picture below.

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.
