Darlington Mowden Park R.F.C and SG Petch have teamed up to organise two charity bike rides to raise funds for the ‘My Name’5 Doddie Foundation’, set up by Doddie Weir (the former British & Irish Lions, Scotland and Newcastle Falcons rugby star), who was diagnosed with MND in 2017. The rides will take place on Sunday 5th May 2019 starting and finishing at the Mowden Park Arena in Darlington. The 100km will start at 8.00 am and the 50km at 10.00 am with routes around North Yorkshire. There will be family activities taking place at the stadium in the afternoon.
The idea was the brainchild of Peter Rees, an SG Petch customer and Mowden member whose friend Roland is also suffering from MND and was a keen cyclist – hence the event is called Roland’s Ride.
The cost of entry is £50 payable online as per the application and this money will go to the foundation; each participant will also receive a specially made cycling jersey* at the start of the event as shown below.
To take part in this event simply make your ride selection, fill out your details and pay your entry fee. Every rider gets a jersey.
* NOTE : The cutoff point to receive your cycling jersey on the day is February 28th 2019
Full details and entry form can be found here.
Don’t forget that both youth and adult training resume tonight. The weather looks like being decent for the time of year, so we’ll hopefully see some good numbers there tonight!
Youth: 6:00 – 7:30pm
Adult: 7:30 – 9:00pm
Hi all, the Cleveland wheelers needs you! It’s that time of year again when we ask members to commit to helping with a club event or events. I’m sure you can all appreciate that the club would be unable to produce high quality events without the help of its members. Please see the google survey below where you can cross out event dates that you are unavailable. There is also an option at the end to help out at a Monday night at the league 2000 instead of marshalling at an open event. Also please note that the open event marshalling is not to be confused with evening series marshalling which you committ to seperetly on entering the evening series. Please can you all return your responces by 10th of February. Thanks for your help with this. Dave k
Apologies to those who missed this when it was published on our Facebook page.
16 riders took part in the event although Richard Carter did have to dash home to get his cycling shoes and started six minutes after everyone else!
Mentions to Stephen Bailes who had more tinsel on his bike than our Christmas tree and Dave Kirton’s mitigating excuse that he did have his Christmas jumper on.
Thanks to Sherry, start timekeeper, Mike Cole pusher off and Bryan Bevis for the booze and cake.

The results of the survey to pick the new club jersey are now available and are in the table below.
The table shows the number of votes each jersey got as first, second and third choices.
Each jersey is then given a points score as follows – (1st choice votes)x3 +(2nd choice votes)x2 + (third choice votes).
Using this weighting Jersey 2 ran out the winner. If you’ve forgotten what it looks like then it’s below.
|1st Choice||2nd Choice||3rd Choice||Points|
Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote.
