Snow stops play again!

Really sorry but we'll have to cancel again this week as there is still lots of snow on the pitches and track. Hopefully we'll be back on next week.

British Schools Cycling Association Yorkshire Roller event 29th March 2015

Here is the entry form for this event to be held at Richard Dunn Sports Centre.

This is a great event for young riders to race on indoor rollers. With the bike supported on a box for Under 7,9 and 11 year olds ( all primary school pupils) anyone one under 11 on the 1st September 2014 can have a go without any prior training on rollers. Older children are not supported for the Under 13/15 and Over 15's categories so it is advisable that they practice riding on free rollers before they race.

Please note there are gear restrictions applying.  A gear restriction means that children in a certain age group have a maximum gear they can use on their bike to make it fair. This is measured by a single full crank revolution. Ask any of the coaches for advice on how to restrict gears (Simply altering the movement of the gears by use of a screwdriver) Please ensure you have checked and restricted the gears if required before attending the competition. We can help you do this at club.
