Poole Wheelers Club Ride for Cycling Weekly Article

Thank you to all the riders that joined us for this Club Ride, it was lovely to see so many of you attend, you certainly made the club proud. Check out this video, can you spot yourselves?

Training News

Ben, Oliver G & Tom enjoyed their half term training in Majorca. Lots of riding including the infamous Sa Colabra, they even bumped in to ex Poole Wheeler Becky out there training with the GB squad. Sounds like a fantastic holiday, well done on those climbs boys, especially young Oliver G!

Message from Rachel: Elliot has not been to as many PW sessions lately as he’s joined the school cycling team and most of the sessions clash. He’s loving his cycling, out three times a week with the school on road rides, and they are doing a Bath to Milton Abbey ride as soon as the weather permits. The school have also booked BCC track sessions starting after Easter hols, and he has been cycling home from school when he gets his long weekends off (nice scenic Dorset routes 3.5 hours from school to home) thanks wheelers.

Thanks Rachel, glad Elliot is enjoying all his cycling, we look forward to seeing him soon.
