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!
From North Yorkshire Physiotherapy.
Cyclist Injury Assessment and Bike Fitting at NYP is a new service that we are offering for cyclists of all levels. This service is aimed at:
- maximising performance
- maximising comfort
- decreasing pain whilst cycling
- preventing pain whilst cycling
Bike fit will include a combination of:
- physiotherapist assessment of the ranges of motion of the cyclist
- assessment of the strength and flexibility of the cyclist
- assessing the position of the cyclist on the bike
Cycling is a form of exercise that should not cause pain. Therefore, most injuries on a bike are caused by trauma. Overuse or static loading injuries are due to poor biomechanics on the bike.
We aim to correct these by addressing both the rider and the bike to find the optimum position that the rider is able to assume to improve comfort, pain, and performance.
This service is conducted by Dallas Newton who is an experienced cyclist and student of all things cycling. He has experience of working with many sports people, from the professional to the weekend warrior.
