The dates for the 2013 Durham Big Ride have been announced.
The Big Rides - Sun 1st September 2013
The Beast - Sun 8th September 2013
Hetton Hawks CC will again be supporting the ride and hopefully lots of members and parents will sign-up and participate. Many of the early finishers in years past have been Hetton riders, so let's see if we can keep up the tradition.
Attached is the flyer for the event, print it off and complete it and bring it in to a Saturday session.
One of the things that we will definitely see plenty of during next weeks W2W challenge is hills. We also all know that what goes up must come down (just more quickly!)
As a final preparation for next week we will spend the session looking at the different types of hill we might encounter along with the best technique to negotiate them.
If time and speed of progression allows, we may take some of the older riders out to find some hills that are a little bigger than those we have on the Hetton circuit. Fit, experienced cycling parent helpers may therefore be requested.

Well done to all the riders, another super day of racing. Lots of good practice, ideal now to sign up for the North East Youth League event on 2nd June at Hetton.
After a great weekend of road riding at Berwick, the main point of technical feedback is that we suffered a number of punctures due to riders in the group hitting potholes that they couldn't see and weren't told about. At least Phil Timmins got a new set of tyres out of the event though!
On Saturday we will be working at learning how to reduce the risk of hitting obstacles by focussing on some group riding and communication excercises.
Jem and Nat Henderson had their First Ever Pot Noodle at Hetton today. The tuck shop was closed but this did not stop them . After his race Jem was seen running around the field with a Pot Noodle looking for a kettle.
Breaking News Part 2.... they both survived the experience.
