CYCLO-CROSS FOR BEGINNERS
The last two of Paul “Wingy” Hughes’s adult novice cyclo-cross training sessions will take place on the following dates: 30th Sept 14th Oct.
Sessions run 11.00-12.00. Venue – the Brooksbank Cycle Circuit. If you are a complete newby, please bring trainers and a bike with off-road tyres and flat pedals. Lots of muddy fun guaranteed. Cost £2.50.
Our regular Breeze rides for women and children continue to run on every third Saturday in the month. These rides are free and particularly suitable for new cyclists, or those returning to cycling after a break. There are adult bikes to borrow and friendly Breeze Champions on hand to assist and give advice. Places are limited and must be booked via the links below.

WOMEN’S SOCIAL RIDES
To help grow our female membership we are trialling two women-only sessions at the track. Use the time to get some flat miles done, practise group riding skills or go round the cones for some cornering practise. Do a little or a lot, it’s up to you. Hot drinks in clubhouse post-ride. Any cake based donations will be gratefully received. There will be the usual charge of £2.50 to cover track hire.
Saturday 7th October 1.30pm-3.00pm
Saturday 4th November 1.30pm-3.00pm
We have arranged some cyclist-specific core strength and flexibility classes starting Wednesday 18th October, 6.15pm at HT Fitness, 6a & 6b Commercial Mills, Oldham Road, Ripponden. Please book a place with Corinne on 07960425303 or via the Pedalsport Facebook page. Sessions are £6 and will run throughout winter. For youth/adult Pedalsport members only.
Go-Ride is cancelled on Saturday 28th October due to half-term holidays. All other sessions in September, October and November are on as usual. As the weather gets cooler (and maybe wetter!), please ensure riders are suitably dressed with gloves and a coat being the most important items. We rarely cancel sessions, unless the rain is persistently heavy for the whole session or it is very cold and wet. Always keep an eye on our Facebook page where last minute changes will be published.
We have asked by Brooksbank School to remind everyone that dogs are not allowed onto the grassed areas around the track. Apologies to our canine supporters.
