Follow Alison our coach on her epic cycle ride from Lands End to John O’Groats. What an inspiration to us all.
Hi All, Dave Gerry at VCJ sent the email below about road coaching in Hove Park.
Ben Miller had managed to arrange some sessions in Hove Park. I think he has sent out emails to clubs but since it has all been a bit short notice I thought I would just give it a bit more of a push (first session is tomorrow evening).
VCJ are running some Go Ride races and some road coaching sessions at Hove Park for riders of all abilities before the summer is out.
The format will run as:
Go ride racing (for riders new to racing) between 18:00 – 19:00
Intermediate road coaching sessions 19:00-19:30
Advanced road coaching sessions 19:30 till dark
Cost for the Go Ride racing will be £2 and will feature a time trial, a road race and a handicap road race.
Coaching sessions will be run along the same lines as the Cyclo cross sessions, cost will be £1/£2 respectively (employed/not employed). We will be covering a variety of skills including the things to be aware of when riding out on the open road. If you are coming along please bring your road bike, helmet and something to drink.
We will be running these on:
Thursday 22nd of August
Tuesday 27th of August
Thursday 29th of August
Due to lack on coaches (on Holiday) there will be no session for younger rider this week! For older rider (over 12) there will be a session at Preston Park 10am-12am. This will be on road bikes, and be mainly an endurance based session. Thanks Andy
PS drop me a line firstname.lastname@example.org if you are planning to attend so I can gauge numbers.
Hi All, I (Andy) will be leading a road ride from Preston Park for older riders leaving PP at 9.30am and returning 12pm. Normal FAQs apply. If in doubt about if you can come drop me a line email@example.com . Thanks Andy
For older riders not attending the Go-ride racing at PP the MTB at Stanmer Park will now start at 9.30. Meeting Upper Lodges car park. Thanks Andy
Hi all, I am sorry to say there will be no sessions this Saturday. Coach are away at various events including the BSCA Nation hill climb champs. and Anthony is running a BC level 2 coaching course in Sussex. Thanks Andy
The 09:00 session for the older riders will be for fixed wheel track bikes only and will run until 10:30. This season is indented for experienced track bike rider (not novices). Younger riders who intend to race on fixed wheel may also attend. If in doubt you should contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to confirm. PS. If you need to borrow a track bike you should aim to get there 10 mins early to sort out.
Those riders that usually attend the 10:00 session, please note that this will not start on the track until 10:30 and will finish at 12:00; freewheel road, hybrid, mountain bikes.
I will be holding a bike/scooter security marking surgery this Sunday (02/06/2013) between 11:00 and 13:00 at the cycle track in Preston Park.
The bike marking is free, non-damaging, non-intrusive. The bikes are then registered on the www.immobilse.com database.
Registering details of bicycles online helps police and retailers identify and verify the legitimate owner of bikes and increases chances of reuniting stolen bikes to their rightful owners.
