We will again be running these with our friends from Palmer Park Reading – this limits us to 20 riders from Poole Wheelers – per session

If you want to ride you MUST book a place by e-mail – coachgraham@poolewheelers.com

These sessions will be open to all members, and will be ideal for someone who has not ridden the track before and wants to come along and learn, but also for experienced riders.

The emphasis will be on learning to ride the track safely and competently in a group – yes, there will be some times when you will be required to work harder, but also times when you can have a bit of fun; after all, it will be winter then and not too many of you will still be racing. Depending on the take up, we can increase the intensity of the sessions in the New Year when some of you will be building up towards the new season.

Remember this is Calshot – NO big gears, 81” is ideal – I will be checking!!! (U16’s use an U14 gear).

If you don’t have a track bike, these can be hired at the track, cost is £10.00 for seniors and £7.50 for juniors (u18).The hire bikes are fitted with Look Keo pedals. Shoes are also available for hire at a cost of £3.50.
Pedals are not allowed to be changed on Hire Bikes

However we do have some club bikes so if you need one please contact me before and we will see if we have one you can borrow.

There are good changing / shower facilities at the track should you require these after the session.

Saturday 27th October is the first session – if you want to ride you need to book a place before end of play on Saturday 20th October to do this e-mail coachgraham@poolewheelers.com

Bike Ball Demonstration – come and have a try !!

Fancy something a bit different? Well how about Bike Ball! The sport has been around for a while but is relatively unknown in the UK… until now! A crack German squad will be making a guest appearance as guests of Bournemouth BMX Club and Poole Wheelers Cycling Club on Friday 7 September at St Peter’s School, Bournemouth (BH6 4AD) from 6:30-8:30pm. Watch a demonstration, and have a go yourself. Bring along a bike (mountain or BMX best – FLAT pedals NO cleats), your cat-like balancing skills and a sense of humour! We will retire for refreshments to the Riverside Pub afterwards.
