There was much pain and suffering for the Clarion Wattbike session on Saturday morning. With freezing temperatures outside the club used the new Collyweston Heritage Centre near the top of the iconic climb.
There were riders from Yaxley Rides who joined in the action and all agreed there would be more sessions going forward.
Riders, the more the merrier for good racing. All youth riders welcome.
Cakes, if you can bring one along please do, and ideally let me know beforehand
Refreshments - two to help out with them

Please ensure the youngsters are all suitably dressed for the cold weather, if we work them hard enough to get too warm they can take a layer off if needed, better that than getting very cold. Remember there's always hot drinks available inside.
Please park in the Regional Pool car park for free from 6:00 and if you'd like to borrow a bike please aim to be there by 6:15.
Wattbike Team Time Trial 50 mile (10 mile x 5) Brand New Format For Wattbikes
Saturday 2nd February at 10:00. Collyweston Heritage Centre, Main Road, Collyweston PE9 3PQ
A very different format with the club Wattbikes for this event, with a new venue and it would be great to get at least one of our own teams taking part. The format is an inter club event in teams of 5. Each rider will complete 10 miles giving each team of 5 a combined 50 miles. The first rider from each team will ride their 10 miles starting at 10:00 and then after a couple of minutes break to adjust the bikes for the next rider, the second 10 miles will be completed with all teams starting each 10 miles simultaneously, and so on through the team. Note if your team is a rider short then one rider may ride twice or you could borrow a rider from another team, or if you have extra riders why not let them fill in for another team so everyone gets a ride?
