September 2016 Pedalsport Club Newsletter

Dear Pedalsport Member,

Welcome to the September 2016 Pedalsport CC newsletter. We are once again rounding up the action of the last month and looking ahead to what’s coming up in the next few weeks. As ever, keep an eye on our website ( for all the latest news on our regular sessions – any cancellations and updates will be posted there and on our Facebook group.


We will be running a morning of Cyclo-Cross racing on Saturday 24 September for all club members, including Saturday Go-Ride members. This will be our “Club Cyclo-Cross Championships”, though we will probably run it with a similar format to Crit-Cross, with several short races per rider. All ages are welcome, but please note that your bike will need to have off-road tyres. Sign-on will be open from 8.30 and racing will begin at 9.30. There will be a session charge of £2.50 for all riders.


The annual Pedalsport Club Party will be on Friday 17th February 2017 at 7pm. We will be combining prizes, awards, food, music and games and the Heath Rugby Club in West Vale will once again be the venue. Tickets will be available soon. Pop the date in your diary. All members are very welcome!


Briefly, these are the current weekday club sessions. Full details can be found on our website – – Please check our guidance notes on suitability of these sessions “is this session for me?” before your first visit – some of the sessions are aimed at riders preparing for races and are therefore fast & technically challenging:
