Club Training Session - Wednesday 1st April, 6:45pm
Meeting point: B&Q Car park, Ryhope
This is a training ride so expect a good workout. Groups of various speeds form depending on who is out. All are welcome so don't be afraid of coming along to meet club members and give it a go. We meet at 6:45pm for a 7pm start.
Please note we will continue to hold the session at Ryhope for the foreseeable future rather than switch to our summer venue. This is due to safety considerations and the flexibility the Ryhope course offers.
Club Reliability Ride (78mls) - 22nd March, 2015
The club's reliability ride returns to an early season position. The ride started in Middleton-in-Teesdale.
Eight riders took part, an opportunity for riders to test themselves and their bikes on a challenging course.
This year the social ride took place in the Northern Pennines, starting in Middleton in Teesdale, before heading across to Cumbria through Brough, and taking in Hartside. Partaking in the challenge were Charlie Monchatre, Lewis McEvoy, Allan Smith, Peter Baggaley, John Scott, Steve Kerr, Steve Smithson and Norman Grotz. Despite some strong winds all had a great day out.
Newcastle to London in 24 Hours
Some of you may be aware that Charlie Monchatre signed up to take part in the ride24 Newcastle to London challenge in August 2015. The aim is to cycle the 300 mile course in 24 hours.
He is raising money for Marie Curie in memory of his uncle Mick who passed away on the 5th November 2013 after a long battle with cancer. His remaining days were spent at The Marie Curie Hospice in Newcastle where he received exceptional care and they provided the family with much needed support through this difficult time.
