Welcome to Preston Park Youth Cycle Club. We provide fun, skills and competitive cycling activities with fully qualified coaches at Preston Park Cycle Track and believe that cycling contributes strongly to a sustainable lifestyle. Our club caters for members aged 8 to 18 years, though we have some older and younger members. We meet between March and October, typically at Preston Park Cycle Track, every Saturday morning. The club also meets less often during the winter months.
Please contact our membership secretary if you wish to be placed on the waiting list for new members – due to increased demand our membership is currently full.
Unfortunately we are not able to do a Club ride on Sunday 22nd December as initially proposed.
However, if there is enough interest, we can ride on Saturday 21st, leaving from Southwater Cafe at 10.15am. It will be a flat ride , 2 hour maximum, with a compulsory mince pie at the end.
Please indicate an interest by emailing me. email@example.com. I will confirm if we are riding early next week.
Please note. Mark’s email is firstname.lastname@example.org not as in the previous message.
Only four have signed up for roller training this weekend and our coaches are thinking about their Xmas shopping. We will cancel if we do not get to double figures, so please send notice of your attendance to email@example.com by end of play tomorrow (Thursday ).
Our next roller & turbo training session is on Saturday 14th December.
As before younger riders in one session, 09.00 to 10.00, and older riders and family members in the other, 10.00 to 11.00. Remember these are session times so turn up in good time to get set up.
Some riders are bringing dirty bikes which drop dust onto the floor, or possibly your trainer is leaving marks. Please bring a cloth to clean the space where you have trained.
We are hoping to move to a larger hall in the New Year and combine both groups but for now, due to space restrictions, you must let Mark know if you are coming by contacting him in advance of the day by email: MarkVincent firstname.lastname@example.org First come first served as there will be a room limit.
The new hall we hope will be Albourne Village Hall.
The road ride is back to week 2 tomorrow, which means we head north to Warninglid, and is being led by Anthony. Meet in time to leave at 09.30. See the routes in the Winter Training section of the website.
If you are not sure about what roller and turbo training is all about then you can read the report and see the photo from the first session as written by PPYCC member and committee member Isaac Wright
“On Saturday the 11th of November, PPYCC held a turbo and roller session at Adastra hall, Hassocks. John Scripps( youth development coach for the SE region) really helped by giving the session good structure for the amount of people their. The room felt tiny because there were around 20-30 riders [see photo]. First he asked us what was the purpose of using using rollers and or turbo. For example what type of training both were useful for. Then we started to do British Cycling’s World Class Performance Plan warm up. It was a 10 minutes high cadence low effort block. After that the warm up would increase the effort each minute for 8 minutes. Then a 2 minute warm down followed. Next came the effort and pain in an exercise called Russian steps, but for me it was more Russian leaps. It was based around the longer the efforts the shorter the rests. It started with 15 seconds effort online pharmacy and 1 minute rest to the opposite, 1 minute effort and 15 seconds rest, with combinations of time in between. I thought it was a great session but my legs were not so sure. Nonetheless I hope to see you there on the 30th November.”
Saturday pm Roller training at Adastra Hall, 31 Keymer Rd, Hassocks, West Sussex BN6 8AH [round the discount viagra drug back of the centre]. Two groups: 15.00 – 16.00 Youth A, B, C and older riders and younger riders with family and 16.00 – 17.00 Youth D & E. If you need to swap hours then this should be fine as age groups are just for guidance to control numbers. Led by Mark Vincent.
If Adastra Hall car park is full then free parking is available behind Budgens, but you will need a parking time disc, which costs £1, from the shops by the car park. Parking in the car park is free from 16.00 we believe.

Charlie is leading and would appreciate a prior indication of participation if possible. If you need to contact me on the day call 07815103079
For a change this week’s route approved viagra pharmacy starts and ends at the Cafe at Southwater Country Park . Meet for a 10.15 am start. Route below.
The route is 57km but we can shorten on the day if we wish.
Notes- There will be no charge for winter club rides, but the nature of these rides is that a higher level of self-sufficiency is required. this means riders should be capable of safe return if they become separated from the group and that suitable clothing and equipment are used. Thus there should be no new participants without prior agreement. Similarly these are club rides and not coaching sessions, so will aim to be more continuous ride, with limited stopping. Please ensure your bikes are road worthy for winter riding, this includes using tyres that are not worn or suffering cuts and nicks.
Unfortunately we have had difficulties securing space for our roller sessions and as a result this weekend’s planned session is postponed to the following weekend Saturday 30th. Please see the varying times for our next three sessions below. All at Adastra Hall in Hassocks. [If you know of a suitable venue which is free then please let us know].
