Next Sunday 17th Sep sees the first round of the Leicestershire Cyclocross League, hosted by RFW at Weldon Woodland Park in Corby. As usual, we'll be be looking for volunteers to marshal the event. The event runs from 9:00 (with riders warming up), first race at 10:15 through to the last race at 14:00. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated, however little. The race promises to be fast and furious and will definitely be a joy to watch
We helped Rockingham Primary School run their Big Bike Day event today (24-June). They are developing interest in cycling in their children, and this event challenged them to ride as many laps of a 1 km course we had laid in West Glebe Park. There were almost 30 who accepted the challenge, and rode/scooted or even ran around the loop. A number managed lap counts in double figures, which was pretty good going for the age group!
Thanks to the members who helped; Arthur, David H, Eileen, Johnny, Julian, Nathan, Norman N, Paul B and Paul F. We hope to continue this relationship with the school, and a couple more in the area to enable us to build a youth group over the coming 12 months.
We have a separate page set up for the results of the 2-day road race run on 6th and 7th May - click here.
Here's the current stuff about the club you could be interested in.
