Summer Time Challenge

Just want to let you know about our four mini racing series that is coming up this summer at the cycle circuit at Middlesbrough Sports Village. The Cleveland Wheelers Summer Time Challenge in Partnership with British Cycling 2019

This is the third year that we have run these events and myself and my fellow coaches and volunteers are looking to put on another four excellent events of fun and racing. There will be skills and games on for fun and practice, with three races running simultaneously per age groups :-

Race 1 – U8s and below
Race 2 – U10s & U12s
Race 3 – U14s & U16s

Cost is £5 to enter, per event.

There are medals up for grabs for the top three in each age category with other prizes also there for the taking on the night.

We hope to see you all on the following dates :-

  • Monday 3rd June 2019, 6:00pm – 7:30pm
  • Monday 1st July 2019, 6:00pm – 7:30pm

Anyone can enter.

Arthur Puckrin – A tribute

Arthur Puckrin, who sadly died recently, was a long time member of Cleveland Wheelers and for many years was a regular feature at the Evening Series.

Cycling was not his chosen sport however. He was primarily a triathlete or more specifically an ultra triathlete. He was attracted to endurance events which took days to complete.

Before we had the club website Arthur used to write up his exploits for inclusion in the club magazine, The Spokesman. This is one such article which appeared in the Winter 2002/03 edition.

I think it gives some indication of the measure of the man.
