A typically cold damp start to the evening series week 1 on the back up Ingleby course as seamer course was out of action with road works. But a good turn out with 30 riders. Not sure how we’re identifying the road bike catagory riders yet? Not sure either if the results sheet photo will appear below as Iv never tried to add photos to the website before?. Thanks, Dave k
Hi all, last minute change tonight on to our back up evening series course around Ingleby Greenhow due to roadworks appearing on skutterskelf bank on the Seamer course. Please meet at the Ingleby circuit start which is about 1/2 past Stokesley leisure centre on the Stokesley Broughton road. 6.45 first rider off as normal. Thanks, Dave k
Hi wheelers. This Sunday 17th is the Northallerton 50 in 4 challenge ride. Hopefully we won’t have to cancel this year. ( remember the beast from the east last year! ). The ride departs from Marton Shops between 08.45 and 09.30. NOTE! This event is no longer a mass start ride due to safety reasons. Sign on and set off straight away, either in your small groups or individually if you wish? This event is free to enter. Please see the link to the website for route details. Let’s hope for some better weather this year? Thanks, and see you all there. Dave k
P.s anyone not wishing to take part can meet the club run as usual At Ayton for 9.30 set off, that’s if there’s anyone there?
Hi all, the Cleveland wheelers needs you! It’s that time of year again when we ask 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 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. 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 10th of February. Thanks for your help with this. Dave k
Hi wheelers. The time has arrived at to vote on our club kit as it’s now been well over 5 years since we chose the current design. Basically we have 3 new designs, design 1 from Dave Cole, and designs 2 and 3 from Marcus smith, plus of course the current kit, design 4 to choose from. There has been some heavy negotiations and modification to try and make the new designs modern, yet still somehow as “ Cleveland wheelerie” as possible.
In order to achieving a fair outcome it will be a weighted vote, asking for 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice. Simply follow the link below to see the designs and vote.
Finally, in the interest of keeping piece and harmony, as I know very well from last time the tensions that can arise from changing the kit, although we have joked on about it, this really isn’t Brexit or the elections! Reguarldess of weather we vote to keep the existing design or a change to a new one? Those that prefer the current kit can keep riding in that, those that prefer to previous chevron kit can keep riding in that, honestly it’s not a problem, Brian Bevis still rides around in the original pale blue and red jersey, pretty cool and retro these days!
Anyway have a look, place your votes and let’s say a cut off 2 weeks from now, which will be Monday 26th Nov, see you all on the other side! Thanks, Dave k
