BC Regional School of Cycling success for EBCC

Yesterday Joe Parker and George Fox represented club at the second MTB Rsr at Lee Quarry at Bacup. Riders  have to achieve a high enough standard to be accepted into the school where they are coached by the BC Talent Development Coaches. Both boys did well, receiving positive feedback, with guidance for their next steps and some homework!

Parents Day

What a fantastic day - we had 20 mums n dads  and 52 kids on bikes -
The sun was shining, the pitches were dry and we had some really yummy cakes.
We put the mums and dads through the Bronze Trix skills test - and it was brilliant that they all passed and went away with a certificate.  We ran relay races parents v kids - and the kids won every race (the parents were racing in their granny gears!!!).  Periodically we get the planks of wood out and the majority of kids can ride from one end to the other - it was really funny to see that not many mums and dads could do this.

One of the reasons we ran the event was to raise money towards Mikes 'Olympic' Torch. 
Thank you to everybody who took part, baked cakes, and turned up and helped.  Mikes Total to date is now £155. 
Mike is carrying the torch on Monday 25th June - exact time and location will be announced very soon.

BSCA MTB Championships

The event was held at the usual site at Penistone Hill, Howarth in glorious weather, it must be one of the mosat scenic sites to run a MTB competition. The Howarth West End Cricket Club opened up specially to provide toilet facilities and wonderful food.
Many thanks to all who helped on the day. I will be able to post some great photos shortly so keep an eye out.
With competing events such as the I.O.M Youth Tour, two cyclo-crosses and the School games, numbers were down on previous years but still some fantastic riding took place.
