Happy New Year
The Go-Ride coaching starts up again this Sat 6th Jan and will run every week up to and including Sat 10th Feb. Due to the winter weather and condition of the field this block will focus on techniques and skills and be mostly undercover making use of the newly acquired ramps, rollers and kickers etc. Please come with trainers and flat pedals so you can get the most out of the sessions and not worry about clipping in.
Please be prepared for the colder winter weather and dress appropriately, including gloves, as although under cover its will still be cold, particularly as such skills sessions are typically less active.
Venue: Thorneyford Farm, Kirkley, Ponteland, NE20 0AJ
Time: 8:45 - 9:45 Cost: £4 on the day
The coaches will split the riders into groups using different pieces of equipment and rotate around to try and keep everyone as active as possible.
Please note that there is a price rise to £4 per session. We are extremely lucky to have use of the facilities at the farm and the increase allows us to contribute towards their upkeep and maintenance.
The club rides will continue to depart from the farm at 10am although there will be no further Youth Club Rides until the finer weather returns in the spring. Please ensure that you start in the slower groups and only progress when comfortable to do so. If in doubt please speak with one of the coaches and remember all members under 12 must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Please remember that unaccompanied youth members can join a ride at the discretion of the rider leader. A parental consent form must be completed and emergency contact details provided to the ride leader.
For those unaware the National Cyclo Cross Championships are being held in the North East on the weekend of Jan 13-14th at Hetton Lyons Country Park. This is a fantastic opportunity to see some of the best riders in the UK and cheer on a few in club kit. More info below:
Please speak with one of the coaches if you would like more information or advice on any of the above!
