Hi wheelers. For this Sundays club run we are going to try and get the 3 groups to regroup at chapters,Stokesley for aprox 12.30 for Christmas cafe stop. For this reason Andy Curson who is going to lead the fast group has asked that the fast group starts at 9am to allow a 3hr 30 ride he has planned. The other groups will remain the same times. Steady group 09.30 and medium group 10am, Ayton tourist info car park. The sat steady group will also be on as normal at 10.30. See you all there. Thanks, Dave k
A lot of us struggle to fit in our cycle training during the winter months.
In January new cycle classes are being run by a firm called WattCycle .co.uk.
We have negotiating the possibility of our members going to one of these sessions as a group to make the session less expensive.
To begin with their Performance Coach will lead the session but it will be possible for own coaches to take over doing this once we get established.
We were thinking that Thursday would be a good night to do this ? The venue is on Thornaby Industrial Estate.
If you are interested in joining in with this could you either reply to my email or speak to Tony Main our lead coach. There will be only places for 9 people in each class so reply as soon as possible if you are interested.
For more information visit WattCycle.co.uk.

Some club members may be aware that the Cleveland Wheelers have a thriving Youth Scene with coaching every Monday night and The League 2000 but what is it all about and how did it all come to happen?
The story starts in the late 1980’s when some club members were ferrying their and other youngsters all around the country. These youngsters included David Fisher, Andrew Jackson, Phil West, Daniel Smith and Martyn Dobson. My involvement is that David is my Brother-in-Law. There was only a couple of road races in the North East at the time, how things have changed. In 1991 we decided that we should be organising youth races so started looking for a closed circuit, this was when Chris Smith said “What about the perimeter road around the Police HQ on Ladgate Lane?” So Chris and myself had a look and it was perfect.
Round 7 of the North East Cyclo Cross League took place on Eston Hills on Saturday, 6 December. The winner of the senior event was Dean Penfold from MTS who led from the start for an emphatic victory. The club’s sole representative was Mike Cole who, without much preparation, managed to get round on his old MTB.
The event was organised by Derek George on behalf of CWCC. As Derek is stepping down after this event the club would like to thank him for all his efforts over the years. He, along with Clive Thornton, has been involved in the running of this race as long as I can remember.
The full results can be found here.
It looks like we have a busy charity weekend coming up. Our main priority is to support club member Keith Alderson with his roller racing event to raise money for his granddaughter Gabriel on Sunday 7th at 3pm at New Marske sports centre. Simon Coates has been busy helping Keith to organise the event and has pulled together a fantastic list of prizes, it will be good fun for a good cause. £10 entry on the day to take part in the roller racing. Please bring friends and family plus your own bike.
Stockton wheelers also have a charity ride on the same day in support of their rider Andrew Blanch who sustained serious injuries in an accident last week. In the interest of supporting this and inter club relations we have decided to take the entire club run over there to take part. It’s just a steady 30 mile social ride starting from the Myton Pub in Ingleby Barwick at 09.30
So the Plan for the weekend is this!
Saturday 10am. Additional club run regular group meeting Ayton, ride leader Vince Kelly.
Saturday 10.30am. Steady steady group as normal. Ride leader Julie McNicholas.
Sunday. 08.50 Meet at Marton shops to ride over to the Myton at Ingleby Barwick via ladagate lane and the post house, or meet us on route or at the Myton before 09.30. Please wear wheelers kit if possible so we can put on a good show. I know this isn’t always practical in the winter. Anyone wishing to do a normal club run just meet at Ayton for 10am and sort yourselves out.
Main event! Sunday 3pm. Roller racing charity event. New Marske Sports and Social club, Gurney street, New Marske, TS118EG. Please be there before 3pm complete with bike and £10 if you wish to take part.
See you all at the weekend.
P.S. Anyone doing the Stockton charity ride and our roller racing event will be entered into a special raffle to win the Fibre Lyte carbon fibre clock!
P.P.S. Don’t forget we’re looking for volunteers to help out with the event (signing on, helping to steady the bikes, serving refreshments, etc.). You should still be able to take part too. If you can help out contact Simon Coates, Keith Alderson or any committee member.
