For the first two weeks we will aim to get the first rider away at 6:30. You may wish to ride with a rear light as it could be getting towards dusk by the end of the event!
The ‘gravel pits’ gate is not locked so we will use that area for parking. The events are for Cleveland Wheelers Members only, if you still haven’t quite got round to re-joining please do so as you will not be able to ride due to insurance considerations! ALSO please abide by the Highway Code at all times and be considerate to others, particularly in the villages.
The first event will be organised by Lesley Meadows and the timekeeper will be Bill Millen. The marshals are Vicki and Paul Howe and Debbie and Darren Pine. Richard Lilleker was down to marshal but now has other commitments. He’s posted on this page looking for a swap, any volunteers?
Any problems please post.
Hi wheelers. Tuesday evening mixed ability training ride on as normal, meeting at Ayton tourist info car park at 6pm for 6.10 set off. All welcome, cost zero! We will do more easby loops ths week. Dave k
Attached is the route for this week. As a few of the regulars are away racing in the Philip Russell so I’ve pulled one from the archives which is quite flat and keeps you quite local. It basically goes via Bullamoor, East Harlsey and Brompton then back via Deighton and Crathorne.
Alternatively you could pop along to Seamer and show your support.
Just in case people need to get motivated for the upcoming Evening Series an all time list has been added to the website with riders fastest times on it. The list will be updated every 2 weeks or so as the series progresses. Just the one lap list for Seamer has been added so far and the archives have been trawled back to the year 2000 for this, adding in current members quicker times from previous years, as well other times of significance. People on the list deserving of a special mention are Geoff Robinson’s time from 2003 which was the PB for many years, Richard Meadows’ 2008 time and Bryan Bevis and Norman Bielby popping up in 61st and 83rd respectively.
Here’s the link http://clevelandwheelers.com/evening-series-personal-bests/ when you first go in the list appears quite small but you can enlarge it. It goes on to 3 pages and there is a separate list for the women after the men’s. So now the pressure is on to move up that list, or prevent yourself moving down it! The 2 lap list will be added soon and the fastest ES times for the Broughton circuit will also be added too.
You may have seen on the website previous details of this group’s charity ride from Middlesbrough FC’s Riverside Stadium to Yeovil Town’s ground in time for the final kick off of the season on the following Saturday. It would be great if as many Wheelers as possible turn up on the 29th April to ride with them on their first stage out of town towards Northallerton.
You will need to be at the Riverside around 8:30 on the Tuesday morning for the ride out at 9 am. It is expected that local press will be in attendance. The club has been involved in helping with the planning of this first stage and it would be great to show our continued support for their challenge.
Mike Cole, Club Chairman.
