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.
Saturday 18th April is the fourth round of our Go-Ride Race Series for this year. This is the first of two road races taking place around the Hetton track.
The event is open to all Youth riders. Each rider will complete a 1 lap time trial and compete in a bunch race within their relevant category.
We are also hosting a race for the National Para-Cycling Series. This is a first for the club and want to make sure the event is well supported so keep an eye on your inboxes for Volunteer requests!
There will be a workshop in planning your training using the BC method in the Hetton Centre from 7-9 pm on Wednesday 8th April. Suitable for all Yputh B, A and Junior riders wanting to put more structure into their training and to be able to record and reflect upon their training - parents welcome.
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.
