Go-Ride Update Nov 2017

Lots if  Info…

Youth Go-Ride Coaching

The Go-Ride coaching will continue at Thorneyford Farm every Saturday up to and including Sat 16th Dec. We will continue the cyclo-cross scheme using a combination of field and hard surfaces so CX / mountain bikes with gears will be required. Please be prepared for the colder weather and dress appropriately, including gloves!

Venue:  Thorneyford Farm,  Kirkley,  Ponteland,  NE20 0AJ

Time:     8:45 - 9:45            Cost:     £3 on the day

The coaches will split the riders into appropriate groups based on their ability.

The riders will be split into 3 groups as we introduce a new more advanced group for the growing number of teenage members. We hope to provide suitable coaching sessions to challenge them and help their continued development and progression as riders.

Club Rides

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.

Racing Opportunities

For those looking to race then take a look at the 2 regional leagues.   NECCL is predominantly Saturdays and CXNE Sundays. Numbers participating tend to the higher at the CXNE events so NECCL may provide a more gradual entry. We will be hosting the NECCL event at the farm on Sat 11th November and the CXNE event at the farm on Sunday 17th December.
