Evening Series Week 11 – 12 July

Not many people fancied the idea of riding a two lapper tonight. We only had 15 people sign on and then one of them became a DNS when Roger Davies realised he’d forgotten an important piece of cycling equipment- namely his bike. I suppose we can forgive him however as a unicycle isn’t as visually imposing as its two wheeled brother.

Anyway, at the end of the night Richard Lilleker had posted the fastest time with a 40:51 with Ella Towers taking the honours for the ladies with a 50:06.

British Cycling – Accredited Marshals

The first regional Road Race in County Durham for 20 years takes place on Saturday 4th August 2018 near Barnard Castle. This will also be the first event in the North East to use Accredited Marshals to control traffic. We urgently need to train 10 Accredited Marshals for this first event.

The North East AMS course is on Monday 16th July at 6:00pm at the Chester-le-Street, Riverside Leisure Complex, DH3 3SJ.

Enrolment is via the British Cycling website. The course is free, and is a combination of online learning and one evening of practical training. (Enrolment closes Thursday 12th July.). Free British Cycling Bronze membership is available to non-BC members.

60% of road races across England now use Accredited Marshals who have been trained to use the “Stop! Cycle Race” sign, to legally stop and hold traffic, making road races safer for everyone involved; riders, the race convoy and other road users. Come and be part of the team securing the future of Road Racing in the North East.

CWCC Evening Series Week 10 – 5 July

Richard Lilleker was the fastest on the night with Kate Sanderson the first lady.

Special mention to Roger Davies who left his penny farthing at home tonight and instead rode on his unicycle, complete with disc brake and tri bars!

Richard Lilleker and the two young guns, Ross Turner and Euan Sanderson, posted good times but will they be enough for us to retain the trophy?
