Saturday 27th April Club Ride

Saturday’s ride is a flatter one than normal, we are starting at Swiss Cottage in East Hull.  We head out towards Sproatley and loop round on some of the flatter and more open roads available in the East Riding. Riding alongside fields and farms, it feels like you could be in Holland or Belgium, watch out for those crosswinds and keep together in a group to make the ride easier.

Depending on numbers we may ride in 2 groups to help the faster/slower riders

See you at 10am!

Route

National Cycling Centre

NCC

Over the past few months there has been a log of talk about booking on to the National Cycling Centre Track in Manchester.  Due to the high number of people wanting to ride on the velodrome in Manchester we have been placed on a waiting list.   There are 75 other groups also on the list for September.

Basically what happens is in May the time table for September will be released with certain times available for Private Hire, we have to respond and if successful will have the track booked.

What do we get and how much is it I hear you shout, well we get full use of the track, alone for 1 hour with the use of a British Cycling Coach.  The cost for an Adult  16+ Private Novice taster session would be £180 per hour for a max of 16 people and includes Track hire, bikes helmets & training coach.  Shoes are £5 to hire.  I suspect that we will have no issues filling up the 16 spaces available.  The maximum cost would be £16.25 each for the 1 hour session on the track. BARGAIN!

Keep a look out for more information
