Family Club Ride 29th July

Family Club Ride 29th July

Meet Lido Pool Car Park 10.00 Family ride is to Bolton Abbey stopping at The Cavendish.  A longer route can be arranged if some parents and kids want to ride further.  We will aim to leave at 10.15.  For those not ridden the family route it is approx 15 miles round trip riding on quite roads.  There is a busy road but we can take the decision to ride on the underpass.  We will stop at the cavendish so those non riders in the family can met us there and have a picnic weather permitting. Mandy is bringing her car to carry luggage and tired legs and bikes  if needed.

Club Evening Time Trials

The season began with the sunshine, there was only one event that was cancelled due to the rain.  Tues evening was the finale with a huge number of persons riding - Must have been the carvery that sold that one.  Just a huge thankyou to Jim, Brenda, all the time keepers and marshalls as these events couldnt run safely without them and also a huge well done to everybody who rode this year. Think Jim may need to order some more numbers !!!
There are still the club 25/15 and open 10 to ride in September. 

Each weeks results are on the forum and there is a PDF copy of the overall results.

BSCA Yorkshire Circuit Race Championships results

The race on Saturday went very well despite the downpour which interrupted the racing. Numbers were disappointing for the event but there was a national youth series the next day which may have contributed. We still had full support from EBCC with a virtual whitewash in the placings. well done to all who rode and who helped.

Latest Success for our Youth Riders

This weekend saw the best ever result for EBCC this year in the National Youth Circuit Series at Hetton on Sunday. While the rest of us were at Sky Ride having a great time, some of our riders were riding their socks off.

Euan Cameron rode the ride of his life to come second in the Under 12's National Circuit race to take a much deserved second place on the podium, just a fraction of a second behind the leader. This shows how dedication and the right training will bring you success. We are waiting to hear of our other riders results so keep sending them in.

The Sprint Finish - So Close

On the Podium in Second Place

Another of our riders, Luke O'Connell also had a second place podium finish at the Ilkley CC Day at the Races at Sherburn. Luke has been going from strength to strength over the last few months so well done!

Skyride Bradford

There were alot of people took part in Bradford Sky Ride. Check out the skyride link page for full report.  Oliver and his family were spotted having lunch.

Events took part at either end of the ride.  EBCC had the roller tent which was very popular oposite BC go ride races.

Mandy commented: - We had over 122 attempts on the day to set the roller records, our busiest ever. Many thanks to all the helpers on the day.

One tiny point - when we asked our EBCC riders to start at the front of the Sky Ride to ride up together - we meant stay together,and not leave behind the younger ones. Apparently it became a bit of a race!

They did make it to the front for a picture - A Rose between 7 thorns !!
