Cleveland wheelers marshalling duties 2015

Hi all, sorry to be pecking all your heads again! Thanks to the 100 or so people that have now completed the marshalling availability survey. There are still around another 100 people that are required to complete the survey before February 8th. Please follow the link below and complete ASAP. If you have any questions, or you normally like to perform a certain duty, or you feel you shouldn’t be marshalling as you already carry out wheelers work, then please just complete the form and add a note in the comments section so I can see all the details when John Kelly sends me the final completed survey. If you’re really struggling to commit to any date then please pick the most likely date you will be available, swaps can always be performed nearer the time if we are really stuck. If you would also like to comment on how well you think this new system with an on line survey is working or ideas for improvements then please feel free to add those comments as well. Your club needs YOU!! Thanks, Dave Kirton

Cleveland Wheelers Race Team ‘Away Weekend’ to Scarborough

17th & 18th January, 2015

Everyone congregated at 10:30am Saturday morning for the long awaited CW’s race team ‘away weekend’!

The two groups set off – the steady group taking the more direct, but extremely hilly route over the moors, and the faster group intending to head out towards Osmotherley & Hornby before picking up the main Scarborough road at Helmsley.
Due to road conditions, the fast group had a change of plan, deciding it would be safer to take the lower option – circling around to Northallerton, Thirsk and up over Sutton Bank. Adding the extra mileage put doubt in people’s minds…none more so than Martin Brearey – who then came up with a whole host of excuses for additional ‘stop’s’ – 3 x glove drops, 1 x puncture, 1 x grease on rim. Never the less the group worked well, passing Helmsley, Kirbymoorside and onto Thornton-le-Dale for a well deserved coffee stop, where the steady and fast groups converged.
