There is a lot on this weekend so here goes! Please keep reading to the end as it's important stuff.

1) Saturday 16th June - Two Choices as no club.

Either: The BSCA Grass Track Race Champs at Beverley, a fantastic day out with lots of racing for kids and we are hoping for a big EBCC turnout. Venue: Longcroft School, Burton Road, Beverley HU17 7EJ starting at 11 am so be there for about 10. Under 13's and below use freewheel bikes and O15's use track bikes.     Entry Form is attached to the calendar entry.

2) Or: Bradford Cyclefest at Roberts Park See:       for details.     Lots of fun cycling events including our cycling rollers. We want as many EBCC members who are not going to Beverley to come and support us at this event. Helpers would be appreciated as well.   

3) Our EBCC Ride out Knaresborough to Fountains Abbey.
Sunday 17th June Meeting at 10am to leave prompt at 10.30am

EBCC Club Ride
Knaresborough - Fountains Abbey – Knaresborough
Approximately 32 miles
Start at Tentergate Lane (HG5 9BG) at the western end of Knaresborough.  There is ample parking on the public highway outside St Mary’s Primary School. 

 Kindly organised by Kevin and Janice O'Connell: We are planning to stop for lunch/picnic at the lakeside tea room, depending on the weather.  For car drivers there is a pay and display car park nearby which is free for National Trust members but costs about £3 for non-members.  The car park near the main entrance to Fountains Abbey is free to everybody but is further from the lakeside tea room.  The big cafĂ© near the main car park may be a better place to have lunch if the weather is wet.  We can decide on the day. Mandy will be taking her car for picnics, tired legs etc. E Mail Mandy for map and route at:
4) Mike Healey's Olympic Torch relay Monday 25th June 7.17 am
Mike was nominated by our club for his services to EBCC saturday bike club and will be bearing the Olympic flame as touch bearer number one from outside the Leeds Town Hall and finishing at the junction of Cookridge Street and Great George Street. He starts at 7.17 and it would be fantastic if EBCC members could be there in our club kit to shout him on. We will then go for a club breakfast afterwards. Several have already booked days off school and work for this one in a lifetime event. We intend to arrive at the Town Hall by 6.30 and spread ourselves around as you see fit, meeting after it has finished outside the Town Hall at the Cookridge street side where we will then go for breakfast. Anyone who wants to meet before can meet at 6.30 at the meeting point for after.

5) Finally EBCC Kids Tops:
We need an EBCC top for Rebecca so if you have any outgrown ones, please bring them back to club. She is a size 58cm chest and is 117cm tall. If anyone can help it would be appreciated.

If anyone has any old tops of any size, please bring them back to club while we wait the new kids kit. Designs will be sent off this week and once the proofs come and samples, we can sort out the new order.We also need a top for a 14 year old youth rider as well so if any Senior members have old tops they don't want, we can reuse them.
