Normal club this week at usual times of 10am – 12 noon.

    • make sure riders are dressed for the weather ( more thin layers rather than just a thick layer). It is a requirement of the club and the Redbridge Cycling Centre that all riders wear helmets. This includes riding to and from the car park!! Don’t forget your gloves as they help prevent grazed hands in case of a spill. We got a supply in for riders to borrow but we are down to only a few pairs now!! If you inadvertently took club gloves home with you, please return them. Thanks
    • arrive in plenty of time to sign on and hire bikes if necessary, ready to start at 10am
    • Parents/carers are required to stay at the circuit for the entire session (there is a cafe with free wifi) or we always seek volunteer helpers & it would be something to do instead of hanging round getting bored!
    • No adult riders unless you are a coach or approved helper (see the coaches if you want to help)
    • Don’t forget to sign out before you leave
    • Make sure that you or your child have your payment with you when you sign on. Only Coaches are exempt from paying a session fee.
  • Please complete our membership survey. If there is more than one member in your family you need to complete the survey for EACH member. This will mean that every member receives a membership number. Member Survey

    • Important news about club Kit. We have held prices for a number of years now in addition to subsidising youth kit prices. From 1st July prices will increase by £5 per item, so short sleeved shirts will go up to £35 and bibshorts and long sleeved jerseys will go up to £40. These prices are still below our cost price! HOWEVER we will at the same time have a sale of new kit from our previous supplier. That stock will be sold off at the bargain price of £20 for short sleeved jerseys and £25 for bibshorts and long sleeved jerseys. Sizes of this stock are limited.
