I’ve often heard it described as the lifeblood of any cycling club. I used to be somewhat sceptical of this claim but I am now forced to admit that this belief was wrong. For many years the club didn’t really have a regular club run, though various attempts were made to establish one and there were regular runs in the distant past. I, and I suspect many others, did most of their rides solo or with one or two other riders. This would be hard to believe now when 30-40 riders turning up at 10 am each Sunday in Ayton is a fairly regular sight. In fact only around five years ago I remember a couple of club runs that consisted of just myself and John Kelly Senior, we nearly threw in the towel.
Hi Wheelers. There still seems to be a lot of people that haven’t yet renewed their membership for 2015. You all need to get your £10 membership subs to me before the Kirton closes! On Nov 30th if you wish to secure your place with the Cleveland wheelers for 2015.
Thanks to all those who have renewed already, and please ignore this message if you joined the club after July 1st this year. I also need to know from parents if their children will be staying with the club next year.
I’m out on club runs Saturday and Sunday this weekend if people wish to pay there. I will also be at Prisick for the Monday night training session.
I can also take pay pal payments to firstname.lastname@example.org
Or request bank transfer details
Or post money or cheque made payable to Cleveland wheelers through my door.

As many of you may already know, the grand daughter of long-time Wheeler Keith Alderson is suffering from Neuroblastoma, a type of cancer that mainly affects young children. In order to help raise money for specialist treatment a charity Roller Cycling Race Off has been organised. This will take place at New Marske Sports & Social Club, Gurney Street, New Marske, TS11 8EG on Sunday 7th December at 3pm (TBC).
The event will be in the form of a number of 1v1 elimination race-offs, leading to a grand final providing an outright winner. In addition to the outright winner there will be a number of category related prizes (youth, female, vet etc.).
The event is sponsored by Galactic Echo, who are providing the winner and runner up prizes, and a number of local bike shops who are kindly donating “category” prizes for the event, though the details of those prizes have not yet been finalized. Prizes will be presented by two-time Commonwealth Games gold medalist Paul Curran!
Entry is £10. Please enter this event if you have the time, want a bit of fun and want to help raise money for this worthy cause. If you don’t have the time but still want to donate, you can do so by following this link.
