Hi wheelers. Due to popular demand and good weather, the prescription for this week is the commondale bus stop ride. Please meet at Ayton tourist info car park as usual at 6pm for a 6.10 set off and organise your selfs in to steady, medium and fast groups. All welcome. Unfortunately last week no one appeared to hear my instructions to leave a gap between groups and I didn’t find out till the end of the ride that everyone had followed the fast group straight out of the car park and some chaos had apparently ensued. So this week the ride leaders will be making sure a gap of a minute is left. Ride steady in your groups to Kildale, then as fast as you wish up to commondale bus stop. Option for anyone who wishes to continue on and do the Castleton, dibble bridge loop or commondale bank repeats. Regroup back at the Buck at Ayton if you wish. I won’t be there I’m afraid so please have an enjoyable and tidy ride.
Thanks, Dave k
Some shots from the Phillip Russell Memorial Road Race on April 19th, mainly focusing on the CWCC team, naturally.
Well done to all those who took part, helped out and supported, in particular congratulations to Andy Curson on his 4th place and to Ian Sheppard who went for the line and “won” one lap too soon! Early days in his racing career and he’s bound to come good soon.
Thanks to Debbie Pine for the photos.

Hi wheelers and guest riders. The Tuesday night club run got off to a fantastic start last week with a massive turn out. Well over 30 riders I think. However I would just like to appeal for calm. Many of us, particularly myself! Got a bit excited last week and it did descend in to a bit of a road race. Probably not ideal for safety on the open roads or our popularity with our motorist friends, also not ideal for encouraging new riders. So please this week can we put the emphasis back on to fast group ride training, through and off and keeping it together as a unit rather than trying to destroy each other. Also with the numbers being so high i would like steady, medium and fast groups to form before we leave the car park rather than on the road so that the steadier or newer riders don’t feel like they have been ejected straight out of the back of the group. Also I’m going to make the Buck at Ayton the default regrouping place between 7.15-7.30ish for anyone who wishes to meet back up for the social bit after any of the training rides this year.
Weather looks good again for this Tuesday, the plan is to ride in our groups steady to Easby, turn right to Ingleby Greenhow, then turn right to Broughton. Begin the group work here, heading towards Broughton, fast tempo riding up clay bank / no attacking! Then very steady descending down the steep side with caution all the way to the T junction to allow the group to come back together. Then repeat. 3 loops for fast and medium groups, 2 loops for steady group. Head back to the Buck at Ayton for regrouping or straight home. Please can the experienced riders help me to try and coordinate this new plan. We will keep this format all year, just varying the routes.
Anyone wishing to join in for the first time your very welcome. Please meet at Ayton tourist info car park at 6pm for a 6.10pm start. A steady group averaging around 15mph will be formed at the car park so that all abilities are able to come along and enjoy the ride.
Just a reminder that club member, Derek George, is undertaking a charity ride this weekend, see below :-
Derek George writes :-
Some of you are aware I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer back in December 2011 and underwent a radical prostatectomy, meaning I had an operation to remove the whole of my prostate gland, in February 2012.
It is three years since the operation and with a PSA level virtually undetectable at my last check up in February.
I still suffer some side effects from the operation. This is likely with being overweight, which I hoping it to be, else another operation might be needed.
Anyway, in a bid to highlight this disease I decided to enter the Moors and Shores Adventure Cross 2015. I’ll be doing the 60 mile Massif ride. This is an off road challenge from Dalby Forest to Scarborough and back, mainly on old railway lines, and takes place on Sunday, April 12th.
I have chosen two charities to raise money for – Neuroblastoma Children’s Cancer Alliance (NCCA UK) and Prostate Cancer UK. The choice is yours.
