The Cleveland Wheelers/British Cycling “Summertime Challenge” is a series of 4 events taking place over the next couple of months (see calendar for details).
The events consist of a series of age-related races, with skills courses and cycling games taking place on another part of the circuit to keep the children entertained while they wait for their race event. Medals are awarded for the 1 – 2 – 3 in each race category and every competitor goes away with a prize.

Last night was the first round and proved to be very successful with more than 40 children taking part, and with some competitive racing in almost every age group.

The winner in the under 8s was Ewan Whiting (SWCC), 2nd was William Rowan (SWCC) and 3rd was Matthew Best (Manilla).

The group have their own Blog and Facebook page so hopefully they’ll be able to keep us posted on their progress.

On day 5, Tuesday 20th, they will be passing through the north east. It would be great to have as many Wheelers as possible out on the road to support them. They’ll be using the following route and they will be setting off from Easingwold about 8:30 am. We’ll put more information on here and an Facebook closer to the time.

Best of luck!
