Coming up this weekend – club session, British Schools National Hill Climb and Track Championships

Good luck to our members who are racing at the Schools National Hill Climb Championship at Petersfield on Saturday and the National Track Championship at Preston Park on Sunday.

Club session on Saturday

The weather’s looking good, so please bring sunscreen and plenty of water instead of waterproofs, and track gloves (I.e. Fingerless). We’ve noticed lots of riders coming to sessions without gloves, and it is not safe to ride on the track without them (gloves slide along Tarmac better than hands if you fall off a bike).

Earlier session

09:00 creative warm up to arrive in body, mind, and heart
