Pedalsport CC EGM, 9 March 2017

Practicalities

The Pedalsport Club’s Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) will be held at Brooksbank School at 7pm on Thursday 9th March, to which club members of all ages are invited.

Please note, there will be no club training session at the circuit that evening, to allow everyone to attend the meeting. However, we will be using the circuit car park for all attendees of the EGM (The school has other events on the same evening, so their main car parks will be occupied).

The meeting will be held in the rooms above the Sports Hall, to the rear of the school. Gates at the circuit will be open from 6.30pm, with the meeting starting promptly at 7pm. The meeting is expected to last for approximately 1 hour.

The Meeting

The main purpose of the meeting is to elect a new Committee who will take the club forward for the coming year, building on the fantastic success of our club in recent years. We will make changes to our Constitution to bring it in line with the size and shape of the club today, then hear our Treasurer summarise the 2016 accounts, before the existing committee stands down and we elect a new committee. A few roles will be proposed to be filled by existing Officers (Treasurer, Club Welfare Officer and Race Director) but all other roles are available for nomination, and more details including role descriptions are included in the EGM pack (Download Pedalsport EGM Pack).

Chairperson
Vice Chairperson
Secretary
Social Secretary
Communications Officer
Women’s Officer
Youth Officer

If you would like to put yourself forward, or nominate someone else (once you’ve agreed this with them!!) for any of the committee roles, or have any questions, please send an email to pedalsport@live.com, or let Keith Finnett know before we start the meeting. There will also be an opportunity during the meeting to make nominations. All roles are best filled by adult club members, except for the Youth Officer which we would like to have filled by a member who is under the age of 18. Members of all ages are very welcome at the meeting, and in the event of a vote every member present will be able to have their say – all we ask is parents guide their children at the appropriate time! Please note, you will have to have a current club membership to attend the meeting and vote.

It’s your club – so please come along and have your say!

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.

October 2016 Pedalsport Club Newsletter

Dear Pedalsport Member,

Welcome to the October 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. 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.

COACHING

Although we don’t normally theme our newsletters, coaching is very much in the spotlight this month. The next two stories below concern the progress being made by our Under-16 (Youth A) and Under-14 (Youth B) riders and the recognition they have received from the GB Cycling Team’s development coaches. This is, above all else, testament to the dedication and application of all these riders and to the support they receive from their parents. But it also reflects well on our club’s coaches, who put in a huge amount of unpaid time running training sessions throughout the year.

It’s also worth noting that the increasing emphasis in the last 12 months on coaching our younger riders in the Under-12, Under-10 and Under-8 categories to race, not just ride, has started to bear fruit with some great performances in Circuit Races through the summer and now in the early Cyclo-Cross races on the 2016-7 season.

All our coaches are volunteers – your session fees are used to pay for venue hire and any profits are ploughed back into club equipment and coach training courses.

YOUTH APPRENTICE PLACES FOR PEDALSPORT RIDERS

We’ve just had the good news that four of our club riders have been invited to become Great Britain Cycling Team Apprentices in 2017. Only 100 riders nationally are invited to join every year and being an apprentice opens up the opportunity for extra coaching sessions and input from GB Team coaches. The four riders are James Bunting, Josh Greenwood, Max Rushby & Dylan Westley.
More Details of the Apprentice Scheme: https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/gbcyclingteam/article/20150723-The-Rider-Route—Apprentice-0

RSR PLACES FOR PEDALSPORT RIDERS

In addition, a number of Pedalsport riders have been selected to take part in Regional Schools of Racing (RSR) this Autumn and next Spring. RSRs are generally for riders in the A and B Youth categories and are run by the GB Cycling Team to help talented riders progress in the sport. An RSR is typically a whole day of coaching, run by GB Coaching staff, at a regional venue. RSRs are run in the Track, Road and Mountain Bike Cross-County disciplines. Amongst the Pedalsport riders selected are: Elliot Brett, James Bunting, Fin Cooper-Oldroyd, John Culpan, Ewan Davies, Josh Greenwood, Olivia Ingham, Billy Lazenby, Max Rushby, Oliver Walton, Dylan Westley, Lucy Whearty and Jenson Young.
More Details of how RSRs work: https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/gbcyclingteam/article/20150723-gb-cyclingteam-The-Rider-Route—Regional-Schools-of-Racing-0

We are running a 1 hour adult beginner/novice Cyclo-Cross and Cross-Country mountain bike skills session on Saturday 22 October, 11.00 – 12.00 at Brooksbank Cycle Circuit. This is aimed at inexperienced/novice adults (ages 18 upwards). The session will include instruction and coaching on basic off-road skills. The session is limited to 6 places on a first-come, first served basis. Simply send an email to pedalsport@live.com with your name, date of birth & phone number with “Off-Road Skills” in the subject line. We will reply to everyone, confirming places for the first six. You will need to have an off-road bike with studded/knobbled tyres. A Cyclo-Cross bike or Cross-Country mountain bike would be ideal. If there is demand, we plan to run additional sessions in the near future. Participants must be Pedalsport CC club members, though adult membership to the end of the year will be available on the day for £10. The session fee is £2.50.
