Skill Session – Monday 12th Jan

Posted by on Jan 8, 2015 in News | 1 comment

Had a new bike for Christmas? Want to improve your bike handling and skills? Nervous about joining a club ride and want to gain confidence?

7:15pm sign on for 7:30pm start @ Maindy

These sessions over the next three weeks will cover skills and techniques to improve pedalling, braking, gear selection, cornering, riding in close proximity and moving within a group.

The group will be coached within the centre of the track and is open to all riders – members and non-members. This is not just for beginners but open to anyone who wants to improve skills. (And, a mix of abilities will help Rob and I out as we are doing this as part of our coaching qualification).

Cost £3 (same as normal Monday night session)

The Reliability Rides will take place on the first three Sundays in February.

  • Sunday 1st February: 50 miles hilly
  • Sunday 8th February: 75 miles
  • Sunday 15th February: 100 miles

Although the hilly ride is only 50 miles (a little more actually!), its difficulty should not be under-estimated, it is quite tough, so be prepared please. Be assured there are coffee and cake stops on these rides!

Here come the girls…. Ladies Only Ride

Posted by on Jan 8, 2015 in News | 2 comments

Our all ability ladies rides will start again on 17 January (weather permitting…rain we do. Ice we don’t!) and then on every third Saturday of the month throughout the year.

As last year, all are welcome including non-members. We ride at the pace of the slowest and typically cover a distance of between 20-30 miles. We’ll stop along the way for a cuppa and a chat.

You’ll need:

a road worthy bike;
a helmet;
spares (i.e. inner tubes, pump, levers);
a drink and a snack, and
to dress appropriately for the weather.

The rides leave Maindy at 09:30. Please arrive a little before that in order to sign on.

Posted by on Nov 30, 2014 in News | 0 comments

This is a reminder for the AGM This WEDNESDAY (3rd December) from 6.45pm (For prompt start at 7pm). Please make every effort to attend as this is an important event – have your say on how your club is run and even offer to get involved! Please note track is cancelled for this date so that members can attend. I would be grateful for some helpers to come earlier (around 6.15pm) to help put up arrows/move chairs. Please message/email me if you can help out.

PLEASE NOTE: We have had to change back to the LOWER HALL due to an exam taking place in the Upper hall. For those that weren’t able to attend last year please enter via the main reception (there are bike racks outside here for those cycling). Pass through another set of doors and follow the corridor round to the RIGHT (there will be people/cycling event arrows to help guide you). On entering the lower hall please put your name and sign the attendance register. Please note all U18s MUST be accompanied by a parent/guardian.

Graeme B would be grateful if all previous awards winners could return their (polished) trophies this evening so that the engraving can be done prior to the annual dinner in January.

Suzie will also be selling Ajax Surplus Black Jerseys.
