Middlesbrough Cycle Circuit

We would like to bring to the attention of people attending events at the cycle circuit (at the current time that’s mainly League 2000 attendees) that you MUST dismount on the section that runs between the main building and the football pitches. There is already a sign there to this effect but it appears that many simply ignore it. This is a congested area that has the added hazard of footballs maybe flying over the fence or children running out from the pitches to collect lost balls. If the “do not ride” regulation is not followed the circuit will take further action in order to better enforce it. Your cooperation is appreciated.

CWCC Annual General Meeting

The club AGM will be held on Wednesday 27th September at St. Joseph’s Church Hall, Stokesley. Meet from about 19:30 for a 19:45 start. The meeting finishes about 21:00, after which it’s customary to adjourn to the pub. All are welcome.

If anyone has any items they feel need to be put to the AGM then please email them to secretary@clevelandwheelers.com by the 20th September for inclusion on the agenda. Limited time may also be available for items from the floor on the night.

As always the club will be looking for volunteers in a number of roles, not least organisational (open TTs etc.), so if you’d like to get along and get involved, or if you have any ideas you’d like to put forward, then we’d love to see you.

Research Request

Dear all at Cleveland Wheelers,

My name is Dr Alister McCormick. I am a researcher at Plymouth Marjon University. I am contacting you about a piece of research that we are conducting into the mental aspects of road cycling, triathlon, and running.

We intend to use the findings to benefit road cyclists, such as members of Cleveland Wheelers. The main aim of our research is to help people to find and use guidance on mental aspects of training (e.g., setting goals, getting motivated), preparing (e.g., getting “in the zone”, dealing with nerves), and performing in events (e.g., pushing through exertion and pain, coping with problems), so that they perform better and have a more satisfying experience.

To help with the research, we are looking for people (age 18 and older) who participate either competitively or non-competitively in road cycling events (time trials, road races, or sportives), triathlons, or running events (5km and further, e.g., Parkruns, 10km runs, half-marathons) to complete a one-off, short survey.

If you could share this message with members of Cleveland Wheelers (and other relevant contacts that you have), then it would be much appreciated. Help from road cyclists, triathletes, and runners is very important for the research, and will be used to help people to find and use guidance on mental parts of training, preparing, and performing.

I would be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have. Thank you for your time.
