From the 14th January until the end of March, the Club is delivering a series of roller sessions for club riders from 10 years old.
The sessions will be on a Wednesday evening from 7-9pm in the Hetton Centre.
The first hour will be for novices and improvers, so if you have never had a go
on rollers or are just gaining confidence this is for you. The session will be
Regular Road and MTB coaching this week, with the added bonus of being able to check that you have the right gear restircitions for your age category. Gear restrictions apply to Road and Track (velodrome) racing only and are different for each age category - see attachment. We are hosting the first round of the North East Youth League at Hetton onthe 12th April and it would be great to seee a big turnout from the club, so get your gears checked before then.
Go Ride Round 3 Results
Thanks to all the riders who turned out last week for the first of our Go-Ride MTB Races this year. We have updated the league standings (attached). The points are worked out based on your time in the downhill time trial and where you finished in the race.
Don't forget standings are based on your best 3 races over the series. There are still 3 races left so even if you have just joined or missed the previous 3 rounds, you still have time to get enough entries and points to qualify.
Round 3 of our 2014/15 Go-Ride Race Series will be held this Saturday, 7th March 2015
This will be the first of two Mountain Bike races in the series. We will be getting set-up nice and early for a prompt 10:00 start. Format will be similar to the CX Races we held last year with a Time Trial to start followed by a timed race.
There will be no club session this week, as many of the coaches will be at the Go-Ride Conference.
Instead there will be a social ride, which is suitable for young riders, as the distance is about 8 miles each way along the railway tracks to Lanchester. There will be a refreshment stop in the King's Head - bacon or sausage butties and drinks - before returning to the start point. Parent are encouraged to ride, as numbers of club volunteers will be low.
Meet at Meadowfield Sports Centre (DH7 8RS) and be ready to ride at 10.30 am
Due to clashes with the MTB session during the day and the boys road RSR the next day, the session last week did not include the 10 mile TT. However, there is no place to hide and it will be making an appearance this week, so make sure you have a bike computer fitted and that you take a power nap straight after school to prepare yourselves!
