November 2016 Club Newsletter

Dear Pedalsport Member,

Welcome to the November 2016 Pedalsport CC newsletter. Don’t forget to keep an eye on our website (www.pedalsportclub.com) for all the latest news on our regular sessions – any cancellations and updates will be posted there and on our Facebook group “Pedalsport Cycling Club”.

This month’s main theme is membership renewal – we’re moving to exclusively online renewal and will also be asking all our riders to become members, including attendees of the Saturday morning Go-ride sessions. This is to enable us to communicate better with everyone and to reflect the continually improving coaching & riding programme we are providing for all our members.

MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL TIME – CHANGES TO MEMBERSHIP RULES
Pedalsport Cycling Club’s 2017 membership covers the full calendar year (i.e. 1 Jan – 31 Dec). Memberships purchased from today till the end of 2016 will now include full year membership for 2017.

JOIN ONLINE: All membership applications must now be made online. This helps us keep in touch with you via email and reduces admin and money handling at sessions.

KIDS JOIN TOO: New for 2017 is the requirement for all Go-Ride (Saturday “bike club”) riders to become club members (either Under 12 or Youth as appropriate). All riders must become members and pay online (£10) before attending their first Go-Ride session of 2017 (non-members will be charged £5 per session. Usual fee £2.50).

T-SHIRTS FOR UNDER-12S: Under-12s have the option of purchasing a Pedalsport t-shirt with their membership (see options below) for £16 (£10 membership plus £6 for T-shirt). Range of sizes available. T-shirts in U12 sizes are also available for purchase separately for £12.

MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL – we’d urge as many members as possible to renew their membership before the New Year. When sessions resume on 3 January, non-members will be charged £5 per session (normal session fee is £2.50). This will apply to all evening sessions and Go-Ride sessions on Saturdays.

CLUB TRAINING SESSIONS

Briefly, these are the current weekday club sessions. Full details can be found on our website – https://pedalsportclub.com/ – 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:

TUESDAYS – Adult/Youth A & B Race-Training Session (7pm-9pm) Circuit
TUESDAYS – Under-12 Cyclo-Cross Training (7pm-8pm) off-road

OCTOBER RESULTS BY PEDALSPORT RIDERS

Here’s a selection of results by Pedalsport riders in events during the month of September. We’ll no doubt have missed a few – apologies, it’s hard to keep track of every ride/result. If you get a top 3 in your category a race and want a mention in future newsletters, drop us an email to pedalport@live.com and we’ll include you next time. We’ll also include race reports if you are a budding reporter!
