Announcement

I have been Chairman of Cleveland Wheelers for many more years than I can remember but over the last year I have been thinking that it is about time that I stepped down and let someone new take over the handlebars!

I have enjoyed my time holding on to the ‘handlebars’ and am proud of the things that we have achieved, such as having 10 British Cycling level 2 coaches! There are many other things that we have also accomplished and I am grateful to all those people who have worked with me to get the club to where it is today.

The current world situation is indeed terrible and cycling unimportant. It has left the club year rightly suspended. With nothing club orientated taking place now or for some considerable time it feels like an appropriate moment to retire and give the committee time to find someone new to pilot the club from Septembers AGM.

Prize Presentation Evening

The annual Prize Presentation Evening took place on Friday 28th February at Guisborough RUFC. Among the many winners on the evening were Wheelers’ stalwart Brian Bevis who topped the Over 80s Roller Racing category, a well deserved victory, and lovely to see Brian up there collecting a prize after years of dishing them out.

The Pie* & Peas went down really well and the night was rounded off by music from up & coming rock sensations Exit Left.

Youth & Adult Training 10th Feb

Due to the poor weather conditions caused by storm Ciara, the coaching team have been closely monitoring the ever-changing weather conditions yesterday and today and unfortunately we have had to come to the decision to cancel tonight’s youth and adult training sessions.

In addition to this, the members of staff at Everyone Active, who maintain the facilities at Middlesbrough Sports Village, have informed me that due to the declining conditions with the wind, rain, potential sleet and sheer cold temperatures impending this evening, that it would be in everyone’s best interests to cancel tonight’s sessions.

They have been working this morning on removing a fallen tree branch (one of the bigger longer ones on the far side of the track) that had fallen on the track overnight and shattered. As a result of this and the looming conditions, the track is also littered with debris that they have tried to move, but the wind keeps blowing it back onto the circuit. There is also the possibility that some of the other trees have been weakened due to the storm, so for health and safety reasons we wouldn’t feel comfortable with running the session either.

Please help us spread the word.

We apologise that the sessions are off, but we will return with full strength next week!
