Road bikes and cycling gloves

Both Inner Ring and Outer Ring sessions will be on road bikes this weekend. Please remember to bring drink, snacks and apply sunscreen before starting the session.

Please also ensure you are wearing cycling gloves to protect your hands in the event of a fall. A few Outer Ring riders have learned the hard way recently what happens when you fall without gloves. We are aware that it may be this year’s fashion in the pro peloton to go gloveless, however Mathieu van der Poel’s coaches don’t have to explain to his mum why his hands are all cut up and raw after a Saturday morning spill! So please be safe. No gloves, no ride.

PS for anyone in need of gloves, we do have some spare pairs at the track if needed, mostly in smaller U10s sizes but a few larger ones in the second hand box too.
