Covid-19 Update

Josef George writes :-

Hello everyone,

Firstly, I would like to wish everyone a belated Happy New Year! I hope that everyone is safe and well!

I am contacting you regarding our Youth Sessions for 2021, this includes Youth Training, League 2000 and any other events that we have planned for the year.

We have a full calendar of events planned throughout the year, which we had planned to start on Monday 1st February 2021 and culminate on Monday 13th December 2021. The League 2000 is also planned for this year too from April.

However, as we are still current living through a global pandemic and due to the state of play at the moment in the UK, ALL ACTIVITY at Middlesbrough Sports Village is currently suspended.

Therefore, we are not able to restart our sessions this Monday 1st February 2021.

I am in contact weekly with members from British Cycling (Cycling Government Body) and Everyone Active (Operator at MSV) who are both pending Government announcements and guidance as well. As soon as I receive the good news that we can safely return and the parameters that surround it, I will let you all know ASAP. 

If anyone has anything that they would like to discuss further, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Thanks & regards,

Josef George

CWCC Youth Sessions & League 2000 Update

Message from Josef George, CWCC Youth Development Officer

Hello everyone,

Firstly, I would like to say, thank you for the responses from all the parents who got back to me regarding my previous email. I appreciate that you shared your opinion and thoughts on our sessions potentially restarting at Middlesbrough Sports Village (MSV). I’ve had lots of messages asking for an update so, hopefully, the information below will answer a lot of your questions.

Information League 2000

League 2000

League 2000 continues as strong as ever. This week saw the latest round of the current season and we were blessed with lovely weather, though with a tough breeze down the home straight.  Here is a brief photo presentation of the various aspects of League 2000 and at the end is a link to the full photo album of almost 250 action shots. Feel free to download any that you want for your own personal, non-commercial use.

The Skills Test

This was tricky on the night with the wind constantly blowing the cones around keeping organisers and competitors on their toes.


Time Trial

Again, the wind made for difficult TT efforts, the riders getting a flyer down the back straight but then riding into a gale uphill in the finishing straight.


Friendly Atmosphere

On-track rivalries are always put aside and L2K is a great chance for the kids to meet up with their like-minded friends.


Handicapped Races

It’s game-face on for both riders and pusher-offers as the road races begin…


Some racing action…


Helpers

As always we’re indebted to all helpers, be they club officials, conscripted marshals or helpful parents. None of this would be possible without them. We’re always on the lookout for more willing helpers.

Link To Full Album

The full album from Monday’s event is here. Feel free to download any photos that you want for your own, non-commercial use.

League 2000

A photo gallery of a few highlights from tonight’s League 2000 event down at Middlesbrough Cycle Circuit.
Open to children of all abilities from age 3 to 16, it consists of a skills course, a time trial and a series of handicapped road races. As you can see from the photos it’s loved by everyone (including the parents) and it’s a great way to spend a summer’s evening. Not only that, but it literally has been the starting point for champions!

Many thanks to all who help out and to all who attend.

League 2000, 17/07/2017

A photo roundup from last night’s extremely warm & sunny League 2000.

We’re not blessed with many evenings as lovely as last night, but regardless of the weather participation this year has been extremely good, averaging over 80 children per week. You can see by the look on some of the smaller ones’ faces just how much they love the event.

Skills Course

Helpers
Rachel from Stockton Wheelers ends up helping almost every week, despite also competing herself. We’re indebted to everyone who helps out at the event.

Timekeeping
Wheelers’ legendary timekeeper Bill keeps an eagle eye on proceedings. Bill times at League 2000 every week, as well as the CWCC evening series and most of our open events.
