The club is intending to run easy paced rides to try and get more people involved, who are perhaps a little wary of the usual Sunday club runs, feeling they are too fast or intimidating for them. The speed of these runs is expected to be about 15mph, but will ultimately be dictated by the group.
The first of these runs will take place on Saturday 4th October at 10.30, starting at Ayton Information Centre and ending with a cuppa at Suggitts. It will be about 30 miles/2 hours.
Please feel free to come along, and the invitation is open to all, members and non-members alike.
It’s the Clay Bank Hill Climb on Sunday, 5th October. The first rider starts at 10:01. Last year’s winner, Rob Carter, is down to ride but will face tough competition from the likes of Harry and Charlie Tanfield and Josh Teasdale.
Just a note to say there is no club run planned from great Ayton this Sunday as it’s the Castleton 50 challenge ride departing Marton cross roads at 9am ( see previous post for details) however if anyone wishes to turn up at Ayton at the usual time of 10am and run there own ride then please feel free to do so. Normal club runs with minimum 2 ability groups to resume week after, plus the addition of a possible introductory/ beginners group. Dave k
Just a reminder that this weekend is the Castleton 50 Challenge Ride. It starts at 9:00 from Marton Crossroads, Stewart Park and finishes at Castleton Tea Rooms. Full details are on the website

We’d like to invite your club to take part in the first Sharp’s Brewery Atlantic Roller Racing challenge at this year’s Cycle Show at the NEC, Birmingham. It will be a team event using a new four-man roller rig created for the show by South Coast Sprints. To make the racing even more interesting, they’re designing a devil take the hindmost programme especially for the show.
