Bring and Buy

Don’t forget it’s the club’s annual Bring and Buy Sale on Friday, 2 November 2018. This year, as it’s 60 years since the club was formed, it also incorporates the club’s 60th birthday celebrations.

Everyone welcome.

See the event poster for further information.

Cyclo Cross,14 October 2018

Here is a short photo gallery from the recent CX event. Unfortunately it was too cold and wet for our photographer to stay around all day. Many thanks to Michael Guess for the photos. As always, feel free to use them for your own personal, non-commercial use.

Monday Night Adult Training

Don’t forget, now that the dark nights have returned Prissick training has resumed. 19:20 sign on for a 19:30 start. Encouragement is free, you only pay to hire the track (£4).

A variety of drills & events will focus on fitness, bike handling skills and group riding skills.  The drills are as tough as you make them and (usually!) a lot of fun.

All abilities, genders and fitness levels catered for, the only requirements are that you have your own bike, can ride it, and are over 14 years of age. Members and non-members equally welcome.

Let’s see if we can get some good numbers for these sessions!

CWCC Hill Climb – Clay Bank

Club membership renewals for 2018-19

Hi, wheelers. It’s that membership renewal time of year again for 2018-19. I know you’re all so keen to rejoin!

As many of you may already know the membership fee has had to be raised to £15, this is due to increasing costs and a reduction in funds coming in from elsewhere such as the evening series. The membership fee has been £10 since before I joined up in 1992, that’s a long time. I hope you all agree that the Cleveland Wheelers remains great value for money and I hope you have all enjoyed your cycling year with us. Anyhow please find below the best ways to pay your £15 membership. The deadline for renewals is Nov 30th after which point you lose the benefits of Cleveland wheelers membership. So please don’t delay.

The online payment is the preferred option. It’s easier for me, and easier for you. Just follow the link below to renew. Just to note that unfortunately the SES system does not recognise existing members so please just complete all the fields as if you are a new member regardless of how long you have been with the club. The system is just a means of payment, plus we can keep your details updated at the same time (please note there is an SES admin charge of 60p ). I won’t be sending confirmation emails as the SES system sends you a receipt anyway.

Renew by clicking here.

Anyone who wishes to pay by cash I will be available to take payment at club runs and various other Cleveland wheelers venues, or simply stick it through my door with a note.
The renewal fee is £15 adults, under 18s are free. Josef George keeps a record of all our under 18s membership now. I don’t believe Josef needs parents to take any action, although he is after consent forms from any parents who haven’t already completed one. Josef will send you more info on this soon no doubt.

You can also pay by cheque made payable to Cleveland Wheelers and post it through my door.

If you’re posting cheques then please check with me that it has arrived as they have a habit of going missing in the post! I don’t take bank transfers or PayPal as we have the online system in place and things become too complicated.

For anyone who isn’t planning on rejoining the club, please also just let me know. It’s much easier that way.

Please disregard this email if your an over 70s life member, honorary member, have paid recently or you joined the club on or after July 1st of this year in which case you should have already received an email from me asking you to disregard membership reminders. Any questions regarding your membership status then please just let me know.

Thanks, Dave
