Cleveland wheelers mountain challenge. Sunday 27th May.

Hi wheelers. It’s mountain challenge time again. This Sunday 27th May, 9am depart from Ayton tourist info car park. Finish Flecthers farm cafe. Please follow the link below for further details. Any new riders to the club, come and give it a go. However select your route carefully. The mileage may not be huge as is the trend these days, however we have squeezed about as many hills in as possible. The standard route is difficult, and the killer route is, as suggested by the title a killer. 19 significant climbs in it. Please come fully prepared and self supported for the ride and try to familiarise yourselves with your chosen route, navigating the route is part of the challenge. See you all there. Dave k

Hi Wheelers. Just a few more days left if you would like to pre enter the Evening series. Closing date 15th April. As club members you can of course just turn up. However the preferred option is that you pre enter so that we can pre arrange marshals for each event. Everyone who enters the evening series helps out at one event each. Please follow the links below for further details and links to entry and info. Thanks, Dave k

Tuesday evening club rides / 6pm Ayton / social / training

Hi wheelers. Well Tuesday evening club runs are upon us again. 6pm Ayton ready for 6.10 start. Regroup at the Buck in Ayton between 7.30-8pm if you wish. Thanks to the winter crew who have kept things going on and off over the dark nights.
When we first started these Tuesday night a few years ago we mainly did short local loops or hill repeats to cater for the different abilities. In the last couple of years it’s evolved more towards ability group club rides. I’d like to mix it up a bit between both these systems if possible. It all depends who turns up and what everyone wants to do of course. It’s your club run, you can do what you wish. If anyone has ideas of rides or training routines they wish to do then please speak up on the night or put your idea forward beforehand. The only thing I ask is that more experienced club riders can scan around the car park to identify newer or steadier riders and make sure they are catered for. I’d like to avoid steadier riders being battered out of the back door of a fast group if possible, of course if a steadier riders chooses to go fast group to test themselves that’s absolutely fine as long as they are aware they may end up being tailed off. I think to begin with this Tuesday we should just keep it simple and have 2 or 3 ability groups head off to do a ride. See you all there. Thanks, Dave k

Northallerton 50/4 cancelled. Sunday 18th march

Hi wheelers. I’m afraid I’m calling off the Northallerton 50/4 tomorrow. Combination of snow, ice and high winds. It’s one thing “manning up” to ride it, but then it can become cycling stupidity trying to ride in this weather. I’m not going to reschedule it as the Callander is to busy. You can all enjoy an extra beer tonight and have a day off tomorrow! Thanks, Dave k
