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
Hi all. The newly formed coffee and cake 12mph group will be meeting at the Manor House this Thursday 6th jan at 10am, ( it’s the new pub at the junction between maltby and low lane ) the group will alternate starts every Thursday between the Manor House and Ayton tourist info car park, Sandra main has planned a route taking in roger lane, Hutton Rudby, West rountern, Appleton Wiske, Picton, Crathorn and back to the hub at Hutton rudby. 24 miles if you go back to Maltby. Please note the Hub at Hutton rudby is cash only cafe. The group may also be heading out this Sunday from Ayton at 10am although I’m just waiting for confirmation of some ride leaders to coordinate it, hopefully once there’s enough regular riders the group will become self sustaining. Thanks, Dave k
Hi all, I’d like to announce the launch of a new club run group. The Cleveland wheelers coffee and cake ( CC ) group. It’s a joint initiative with Cleveland Tri club, the idea put forward by Shereen Binks, Elaine Holtby and Sandra main, will see the formation of a new steady group, sticking rigidly to 10-12mph avg, 20 to 30 miles max, and cafe stop of course. All welcome, I feel there is a big market for such a group within the Cleveland wheelers. However like all our groups, it must be run by the members, for members. The inaugural ride will be next Thursday 30th January, meeting at 10am at Ayton tourist info car park. If the group takes off then we could consider extending it to a Sunday group as well. See how it goes. Please note, this isn’t replacing the current Sunday steady group 09.30 start, which is meant to be 14-15mph avg, 30-50 miles.
Thanks Dave k, and enjoy
Wheelers CC ( coffee and cake ) group.
Meet Thursdays at 10am Great Ayton, tourist information car park.
Starting next Thursday 30th January
10-12 mph only. Anyone welcome
guaranteed cafe stop
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.
