What an incredible summer season we have had!!
Membership numbers in the Junior coached sessions have increased to the point where we are now taking new members in the age 7 and under group on specific sessions once every 6 weeks or so to cope with the demand. Please get in touch for the next new intake date.
We have been lucky enough to be a part of some amazing events this summer with our young riders taking part in racing on the finish line of the Newport stage of the Tour of Britain, riding with Geraint Thomas through Cardiff city centre for his Homecoming event and also riding with the Team Sky Tour of Britain Team at Maindy.
Three of our Young Riders became Welsh Cycling Youth Ambassadors and our coaching team upped it’s skill base with coaches passing qualifications in MTB specific coaching, Road and Time Trial coaching and 3 coaches currently completing their Level 2 course.
Adult rides have been going really well with a number of road and social rides going out during the lovely summer evenings we have had. These will now be switching to weekends and Wednesday afternoons.
Some of our ladies took part in their first Sportive building confidence and camaraderie all round.
We are now into the Cyclocross season with racing underway and podium places for our riders in the boys and girls Under 6’s, Under 8’s and Novice Women categories already. Training has been taking place on Wednesday evenings and will continue throughout October, open to experienced over 8’s and adults with adult only training sessions also available through our coach Nic and his Tuesday Traverse rides with Veloadventures. Please get in touch if you would like further information.
Our Autumn/Winter training continues with Hill Repeats Sessions on Rhiwbina Hill every Monday evening meeting at the Deri Inn at 6:30pm and we are soon to start indoor turbo trainer sessions at the Whitchurch Rugby Sports and Social Club on a Tuesday evening.
To top it all off we have been nominated for 3 awards at the Welsh Cycling Awards 2018 to be held on 20th October.
