Hi wheelers. You will all be pleased to hear that it’s membership renewal time of year again for 2019-20. I know you will all be so keen to rejoin! 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 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 details.
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. 6 Glendue close, Nunthorpe, Middlesborough, TS70QN. 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 knowl
Hi all. Please see my amendment to the 50in4 info below. I had mistakenly put 08.30 to 09.30 / correction! sign on is 08.30 to 09.00 and to clear up any confusion with set off times I’m going to suggest 08.50 depart for steadier riders and 09.00 for the faster riders. But of course you can depart anytime you wish between these times once signed on. Thanks, Dave k
Hi all, just a reminder that this Sunday the 15th sept is our premier event of the season, the Castleton 50 in 4. 08.30 to 09.00, sign on and roll out from Middlesbrough Sports Village car park. ( suggest 08.50 steadier riders and 09.00 faster riders depart. Finish at the village hall Castleton opposite the co-op where refreshments will be available. This years event is doubling up as a charity rider to raise money for Teesside mind and cancer research. A couple of subjects that have effected and continue to effect Cleveland wheelers members, families and friends. A donation bucket will be available at the start and donations can also be made in exchange for refreshments at Castleton village hall.
Usual ride rules apply, please keep it tidy, and remember that part of the challenge is to navigate the route, this is not a lead read. However I am expecting ability groups to form fairly quickly on ormesby bank and clay bank which naturally tidies things up. Other than that, enjoy! And please remember, it’s not a race!
Thanks, Dave k
P.S. if anyone would like to donate some extra treats for the café then that would be most appreciated, ( I wouldn’t mind some savoury food on offer as well as cakes and scones! Sausage rolls and pork pies / food of champions ) food donations can be dropped at my house on Saturday.
Hi wheelers. It’s time to pull out the MTB and CX bikes again. This Saturday 24th Aug is the rough stuff challenge ride where my MTB makes its once a year apperence. Hope i don’t get mud on it? As part of the challenge ride series, tourist trial points are available towards the tourist trophy. Depart fletchers farm at 9.30, this ride will more than likely stay together as a group as hardly anyone knows the route! Including me! (I’m hoping my off road ride experts turn up otherwise we will have to make it up! ) Finish back at fletchers farm. Ride time approx 3 1/2 hrs, cut off 5hrs. Please see the info below for further details.
See you there, Dave k
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
