Calling All Cyclists, whatever your flavour!
This Saturday, 25th June you are cordially invited to visit our track at Cramlington Sporting Club to get a glimpse of the national Euro-Vets Grand Prix Series as we host Round 5 of this national, nay International competition following previous events at Stoke, Glasgow, Poole and Norwich. Best of all, if you fancy a go in either of the age categories ( Over 40, Over 50 or Over 60) you are most welcome to give it a shot, bikes provided FREE. The Series is also a proud supporter of the Orchid Fighting Male Cancer charity to which we have donated as much as we could for several years now from raffles and fundraising. The action starts at 1:00 pm, why not call in and see what our Sport is all about with several ex and current World, European and British Champions expected to be taking part? Refreshements, seating and free parking readily available, we're just behind the tennis courts.
Under 16? LOOK!
We have all the gear you need FREE OF CHARGE to get you started in the most exciting of bike sports, together with expert tuition from British Cycling coaches. It’s a great hobby with the chance to enter several British Championships at all age groups and travel to other tracks all over the country.
Junior training sessions start at 5:30 pm on Tuesday evenings where our own British Champion will be coaching you! All welcome, boys and girls, together with your parent or guardian. Track is just behind the tennis courts at Cramlington Learning Village. Come and Try It!
Vikings gain Status
Photographed at Tuesday evening training on 31st May 2016, Terry Kirkup (left) receives Northumbria CSC’s Clubmark Certificate from British Cycling’s Northern Representative Lorna Bennett at the Cramlington track. Also shown are Club Coach Richie Smith and Captain Gavin Parr with some of Gavin’s regular young trainees. On a bitterly cold night Lorna not only waited around to watch some of the senior squad training afterwards but also had a couple of laps herself, taking some words of advice from our British Champion Gavin and soon getting up to speed out of the saddle. This award really means a great deal to us but of course there’s still plenty of work to do to earn and maintain this enviable status.
