The Committee are pleased to advise club Members that we have arranged another 2 hour coached session at Newport velodrome on Wednesday 09 October 20.00 hrs –  22.00 hrs.

The coached sessions are suitable for both those new to track riding and those who have been before.

The club will pay for the 2 hour coached sessions, but the Members attending must sort out their own transport and pay for their bike hire (likely £11 / bike).

For further details and booking your place, please contact Gordon Smillie, via the clubs Contact page. Spaces will be allocated on a first come basis and if over subscribed, then Gordon will favour riders who have not experienced track riding before.

Places are limited to a maximum of 20 riders.

Enjoy!

Our annual club BBQ will be held at the CHELTENHAM CRICKET CLUB – Princes Street, Cheltenham. GL52 6BE, on Saturday 14th September from approx. 1pm to 4 pm.

There is good parking and a bar, along with indoor access (should the weather be bad) or we can use their grassed areas. 

We have arranged for a Hog roast with salads and dressings. There will also be some vegetarian quiches. Please feel free to bring any supplementary food you may want due to members dietary needs.

The caterer will arrive around 1.30 pm, set up and serve.  After approximately 90 mins the caterer will then start clearing up and any surplus meat can be left, so bring your pack lunch boxes!!

Members can bring their immediate family (as long they are well behaved!!) and we ask that you be tidy and respectful of the premises. 

If you bring your bikes, you can have them on hard standing or on the grassed area outside where you are eating.  The committee recommends that you use bike locks just to be safe.

We hope you enjoy this social event and if we get positive feedback on the venue and the caterer then we will look at booking them both again next year.

Should you have any queries, please feel free to contact me otherwise, we hope to see you there for a nice social event.  I have assumed about 70 members will attend, but if there are more, then maybe those pack lunch boxes may go back empty!

The Intermediate session on 7th November has sold out. If you weren’t able to make it and would still like to do an intermediate coaching session, let me know and I should be able to arrange for you to do a short 1-2-1 session 50% subsidised by the club.

We should be gathering from approx 20:00 hrs and would anticipate the presentation being from 20:30 hrs. Club members are also welcome to attend to congratulate the winners and enjoy a social evening.
