We will be combining prizes, awards, pizzas, music and games and the Heath Rugby Club in West Vale will once again be the venue. There is a bar. Tickets are £7.50. Pay the coach directly at any of our evening sessions or in the Pedalsport shop.

FREE PHYSIO SESSIONS FOR CLUB MEMBERS
We will be continuing our free “drop-in” Physio service open to all full Pedalsport club members in 2017. The sessions will be 7-9pm on the first Monday & Tuesday evenings of every month in the clubhouse at Brooksbank Cycle Circuit. Simply turn up on the night and speak to our Physio, Olivia Overton. Next sessions – Mon 6 & Tues 7 mARCH.
We rely on club members volunteering at a range of sessions and events. Upcoming volunteer requirements include the following:
Sat 25 Feb – Shrub planting at Brooksbank Circuit, 9-11am. Help put in the new Laurel hedge at the edge of the circuit. Wear warm/waterproof clothing, bring spade.

Sat 11 March – Event volunteers Brooksbank Circuit, 8am – 12 noon. We need marshals, sign-on crew and various other volunteers to help run the first of our 8 circuit races of 2017. We don’t require you to be available all morning. An hour before/after your race or your child’s race would be helpful.
The Pedalsport shop has a full selection of clothing for riders of all ages and all for all types of cycling. Recently added to their stocks are short and long-sleeved skinsuits, a women-specific short-sleeved full-zip jersey and new club socks.

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:
