Our annual challenge ride is this weekend where a number of riders and coaches will be completing the Coast & Castles cycle ride. Therefore there will be no coaching this weekend. We will be back at Hetton 27th June for our final Go Ride Road Race of the year.
Don't forget the Hetton Hawks Presentation Night is 4th July. Ticket are available after sign-on from Julie or Nicola. Please can all those riders who were awarded plaques and trophies last year please return them by 27th so we can get the this years winners name engraved.
This Saturday we will be running our normal coaching session for Road and Mountain Bike.
Road riders will be following a Group Riding session by Tony H. Covering the basics of bike control and pace for our younger riders through to effective group riding improving the technique for the older more experienced riders. Looks like Tony has ordered the right weather for the session - Windy! So you'll know if you are getting the technique right.
Results from Round 5 of the Hetton Hawks Go-Ride 2014/15 Series have been added to the results table. You can view them via this link http://goo.gl/YGBpYr or download a copy of the PDF attached to this post.
Each round's result is based on the total of your Time Trial and Bunch Race effort. Series results are the total of your best 3 events.
This Saturday we will be hosting our 5th Round of the Hetton GoRide Series.
It will be a Mountain Bike race and a great opportunity for all riders to get involved. There will be a short course for Under 8 and 10 riders (Cat D and E) and a slightly longer one for Under 16, 14 and 12 (Cat A, B and C). The course is manageable on a cross bike as well so don't worry if you have not got a mountain bike.
Please also note that these race start a little earlier with sign on from 09:30 and we aim to finish as close to midday as possible.
There will be regular coaching sessions in Road and MTB this weekend.
This weekend there will be a social ride, suitable for all club members, from the Hetton Lyons Centre. Please be ready to ride at 10 am sharp.
There will be two rides, both suitable for off road bikes along the railway paths around the centre. Parents will be needed to accompany the rides so that we can keep a good ratio of riders to adults.
There will be no charge for this session, which will finish by 12 noon. Please remember to bring spare tubes, a pump and warm/waterproof clothes.
Well done to all the riders and volunteers for a great morning of racing. We have compiled the results from the time trial and bunch races to update the league standings. We can view the results table here - http://goo.gl/YGBpYr or if that does not work then a copy has been attached to this post.
