September 2020 – Update
I hope that everyone is safe and well and are enjoying their summer holidays as safely as possible.
I firstly would like to begin with an apology, as I was hoping to give you plenty of notice of our sessions restarting. I like to be well organised and less than a week isn’t ideal but it is what we have to deal with now. I was hopeful that I would have found out around mid-August as our application for our sessions went in at the start of August, but as you can imagine, they are very busy down at Everyone Active and they have only today provided me with the confirmation update that I was hoping to have had weeks ago.
Apart from a small update a few weeks ago, I last emailed you all at the beginning of July and said that we have been looking at the potential restart date of September 2020. I have been working very hard over the last couple of weeks with British Cycling (Cycling Governing Body) and Everyone Active (In charge of Facilities at Middlesbrough Sports Village (MSV)) regarding the potential reopening of the cycling facilities at MSV and the procedures that we all need to put in place in order to make this happen.
I CAN HAPPILY INFORM YOU ALL THAT MYSELF AND THE COACHING TEAM PLAN TO RESTART OUR SESSIONS ON – MONDAY 7th SEPTEMBER 2020, 1800-1900pm.Read the rest of this entry
In light of recent events happening around the world and to answer any questions that you all have about any of our sessions, I feel it is only right to send out an update from our side.
I have been in contact with Everyone Active over the last few days, whilst at the same time keeping a close eye on any government and official announcements. As they look after and maintain the facilities at Middlesbrough Sports Village, during this time, the fate of our sessions is solely in their hands.
After speaking with some of the management team at Everyone Active today, they have said that as it stands, everything is still open until they are told otherwise (from their head office).
They are working closely with the council and following strict government policies and official advice. Until they are told otherwise, they have said please treat everything as open/on, therefore please continue to use the services that we provide at Everyone Active.
This being said, unless we get more bad weather, or we receive a further update on what to do during this pandemic, all CWCC sessions will be on as normal.
If you require anything further, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Thanks & regards,
Youth Development Officer
Cleveland Wheelers Cycling Club
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!
Don’t forget that it’s the Christmas Party and Awards Night at Middlesbrough Sports Village on Monday, 9 December. There’s more information in the event flyer.
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
