Club Communications

You’re probably all used to getting spam communications from our membership secretary, Dave Kirton, but lately I’ve taken part of that burden from him and haven sent out a couple of club-wide emails.
The trouble with things like that is that you have no idea if people actually get to see them. They could end up in a junk folder or a spam folder and no one would be any the wiser.
Can I ask everyone to check their spam and junk and see if they’ve had any emails from me (I sent one today, Tuesday 21st) and they ought to be from If it’s in spam or junk, do whatever you need to to make it not go there in future. Unless that’s where you actually want them to go… But I promise, my emails aren’t half as dull as Dave’s ;-)


Riders 3rd party liability insurance BC/CTC

Hi club runners and guest riders. After our recent look in to liability issues, we would like everyone that rides with us to have at least the minimum 3rd party liability insurance and also join the club if you ride with us regularly. You can join 2nd claim if you currently ride for another club/team. Please check out the links below. The British cycling ‘ride’ membership £16 (normally £32) seems the cheapest as you get £20 of In your first year if you quote “NEWCMRA” or “NEWCMRD” and you are a member of the Cleveland wheelers as we pay money to be affiliated to BC and CTC. Also check out the CTC cover if you would prefer their membership benefits. Thanks Dave k–0

Easy paced rides, Ayton tourist info car park. This Sat 18th 10am set off. Sun 19th 09.30 set off

Hi wheelers and guests. I’m going to try and start this easy paced group up again this weekend. Unfortunately I had to cancel the first one two weeks ago due to foul weather. This group is aimed at those who would like to ride with us but haven’t the speed or confidence to go with our existing steady group which does 16/17mph. This weekend looks a bit tricky with high winds but the forecast shows it dropping to about 16mph so just about rideable and a good test of the group riding skills we are going to work on. Anyhow, due to popular demand I’m going to put this ride on both Saturday and Sunday. Meet both days at Ayton tourist info car park, Saturday will be 10am depart so please be there about 09.50. On Sunday I’m going to make it 09.30 start as I don’t want it to clash with the established club run groups as this will cause confusion so please be there Sunday for 09.20. Both rides will be aprox 15mph or the pace of the steadiest rider and will be in a group formation taking turns at the front directly in to the SW wind, about 2 hrs with cafe stop at the end. I’m only doing the first part of the ride Saturday but other experienced riders are turning up who will be able to look after the group. It’s my intention that once established this group will manage itself. See you all there and enjoy the ride. Dave k

Bring & Buy Sale, Friday 31st October, 7pm

The Wheelers’ annual bring and buy sale will be held on Friday 31st October at the usual venue of Stokesley Town Hall.

Come along and browse for useful bits of kit and clothing that you never even knew you wanted, and then enjoy a cup of tea and some delicious cake downstairs. Or just come for the cake…

It’s always a great occasion, a chance to chat and meet fellow members (and non-members), buy spare cleats, wheels, stems, bikes or sunglasses (for when summer returns) – or indeed to sell such items that you no longer require. And then to eat cake.

Entry is 50p on the door and if you have things to sell then it’s 50p for a table to sell as much stuff as you can cram on to it.

As always The Wheelers will be looking for volunteers to help run things on the night and of course for people to make and donate cakes! If you can help out any time between 6pm and 9pm (we know it’s Halloween and flexible working hours can be arranged) please get in touch with Steve Tilly, Dave Kirton or any of the committee members.

If you want to donate cakes, just drop them off at the town hall any time after 6pm.

All helpers, sellers, buyers and cake donors will be greatly appreciated.
