Northallerton 50 in 4, ( 2021)

A mainly successful day for the Northallerton 50 in 4 new 2021 route, with 53 riders attending for the challenge ride and navigating the new route. Had good feedback on the event and route as a whole, Some fast group rides around the course today, but of course it’s not a race, the true event is all about the tourist trophy and we have two early leaders in contention, Shaun Joughin and Tom Levell both qualifying for extra points today with proper saddle bags and mudguards. Looks like this is going to be the competition to watch this year. Other rides of note, veteran and one of the founder members of the Cleveland wheelers Terry Lunn age 82 made his annual trip from York to Ayton to take part and completed the course. Please find in the comments below the list of participants, I was unable to get round quick enough to tick everyone off at the finish but you know if you have completed it. Thanks, Dave k

Cleveland wheelers marshalling duties 2021

Hi all, the Cleveland wheelers needs you! It’s that time of year again when we require members to commit to helping with a club event or events. I’m sure you can all appreciate that the club would be unable to function or produce high quality events without the help of its members. 

Obviously things are a little different this year as we are still in the grip of pandemic restrictions, so if I could ask you all to be flexible where possible. We really don’t know if the Hilly 21 scheduled for the 21st of March will go ahead, or the mountain tt on 25th April? So if members selecting to marshal these events could be flexible for if the event is rescheduled? Obviously if the dates change then we can’t hold you to the Marshall duty. We will just have to see how the year unfolds. 

Also i have removed the option for selecting to marshal for the league 2000. Mainly as most people who select to marshal the L2k are already involved so it just means I’m generating an unnecessary extra list. 

Anyhow please see the google survey below where you can tick (NOT) for event dates that you are unavailable. Members exempt from marshalling are over 70s, under 18s, honorary members and those who already carry out club duties including L2k. Also please note that the open event marshalling is not to be confused with evening series marshalling which you committ to seperetly on entering the evening series. Please can you all return your responces by 28th of February. Thanks for your help with this.  

Cheers, Dave k

Cleveland wheelers membership renewal. 2020-21

Hi wheelers. You will all be pleased to hear that it’s membership renewal time of year again for 2020-21. I know you will all be so keen to rejoin! Its been a strange year for sure, but I hope you have all managed to get something out of your membership this year?, it actually ended up a busy year with lots going on as the club evolved and adapted to the Covid situation. 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. I have provided the link to the membership section of the website so that you can all familiarise yourself with conditions of membership before following the link on the website to the sports entry solutions page. ( please note there is an SES admin charge of 60p ) I won’t be sending confirmation e mails as the SES system sends you a receipt anyway. Just to note the membership details form now asks you a preferred date when available to marshal. If your not able to commit to an event now then not to worry, I will be sending out a marshalling availability survey in February anyway. It’s simply serving as a reminder of members marshalling obligations. Also when you get through to the pay pal payment page, you don’t need to have a pay pal account. You can simply check out as a guest with card payment.

Anyone who wishes to pay by cash I will be a available to take payment at club runs and various other Cleveland wheelers venues, or simply stick it through my door with a note.
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 on this.
You can also pay by cheque made payable to Cleveland Wheelers and post it through my door. If your 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 to 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 e mail 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 e mail from me asking you to disregard membership reminders. Any questions regarding your membership status then please just let me know.
Thanks, Dave k

Cleveland wheelers return to club runs / guidance

Hi Wheelers,

Following the governments relaxing of social distancing rules, British Cycling has announced that group rides of up to six riders are now permitted if social distancing and hygiene rules are followed. We are therefore wishing to tentatively reintroduce club group rides. But to do this we need your help.

We do not have enough established ride leaders to accommodate all who may wish to take part. And we have members who have recently joined who are keen to get involved with group rides.

We are therefore asking members to post proposed rides on our FB members group. (Let me know if you’re not in the group!) Simply include the start location and time, rough route, mileage and speed and invite members to join you. Once you have 5 positive responses the ride is full. If there are more than 5 responses the ride will need to split into two or more groups of no more than 6.

Please read British Cycling’s guidance attached. In particular:
• No more than 6 per group.
• No snotting or spitting. If you really can’t help it, ensure it is at the back of the group and not near any member of the public.
• Maintain social distancing.
• Give pedestrians (even on footpaths) and other cyclists 2 metres when passing.
• Do not attend if you have potential corona virus symptoms or you have been told to self isolate.

Club rides can resumes, meeting at Ayton tourist info car park ready to depart Sundays 09.30 and Tuesdays 18.10, but only if riders know who’s group they are in on arrival. It will not be possible to organise riders into groups whilst social distancing if large numbers turn up. As a club we cannot be seen to be ignoring government guidelines.

Please help us to reintroduce Covid-Safe club rides!

Cleveland wheelers marshalling duties 2020

Cleveland wheelers marshalling duties 2020

Hi all, the Cleveland wheelers needs you! It’s that time of year again when we require members to commit to helping with a club event or events. I’m sure you can all appreciate that the club would be unable to function or produce high quality events without the help of its members. Please see the google survey below where you can cross out event dates that you are unavailable. There is also an option at the end to help out at a Monday night at the league 2000 instead of marshalling at an open event. I know some of you may have submitted a marshalling option when you renewed your memberships, however if you can complete the marshalling survey anyway as it’s easier for me to correlate the results this way, plus your availability may have changed? Members exempt from marshalling are over 70s, under 18s, honorary members and those who already carry out club duties. Also please note that the open event marshalling is not to be confused with evening series marshalling which you committ to seperetly on entering the evening series. Please can you all return your responces by 16th of February. Thanks for your help with this. Dave k
