PPYCC New Season news

The new season at PPYCC is nearly here! Welcome to all returning PPYCC members to the 2015 season.

Despite the continued uncertainty of competitive racing at Preston Park, the velodrome is still the home to PPYCC, and we will be holding Saturday sessions throughout the season, March-October. Session times remain unchanged for the Inner ring (U12’s) sessions, running from 9-10.30. Outer ring sessions will be run as a mixture of road rides (normally a 9.30 start) and velodrome sessions (10.30-12.00) until the track repairs are completed and more consistent track and road training can take place at the velodrome. Session details for the Outer ring will be posted throughout  the season.

The first session will be held on Saturday 7th March at the velodrome and will be, as in previous years, a Distance Challenge for both Inner and Outer ring riders. This is your chance to see how your distance riding has improved from last year’s results!

Club kit:  

Don’t forget you can pre-order your new kit, with a great range of items available, by emailing John directly at john.ballinger5@googlemail.com. The kit page on the website is being updated for direct orders once the season is under way.


Remember to renew your PPYCC membership for 2015, with a free club cycle bag for members rejoining by 01.03.2015. Please update any important information as necessary with the team when signing on for the first time in the new season.
