Reef ride being organised by CTC 17th June from Wimborne.

Please see below email received from Mike Walsh from the CTC about a ride they are organizing in June from Wimborne

We invite you and your fellow members to join us on one of two free new rides.  Maybe an on-road for your juniors.  The Reef Rides will take place on the 17th June 2018.  Both rides start and finish at the Reef Youth and Community Centre, Colehill Lane, Colehill, Wimborne Dorset BH21 7AB.

There are two rides to choose from the The Half Reef approximately 30 miles or the The Reef  approximately 60 miles. Both rides are predominantly on quiet country lanes heading out towards Cranborne and Tisbury respectively.

The Half Reef is a pleasant ride, relatively flatter terrain, suitable for novices, youngsters or those getting back to cycling.

The Reef is a classic route with a few hills for interest.

A route sheet will be provided for your chosen ride and Garmin downloads for both rides are available on WWW.WESSEXCTC.ORG.

There will be no organised refreshment stops or support en-route therefore participants must be self-sufficient in all respects after leaving the centre.  The rides do however pass through country villages where refreshments may be available.

Entrants can sign in from 08.30hrs and commence at any time. The event will close at 18.00hrs. Refreshments will be available at the start and finish, all entrants signed in and out on completion will receive a complimentary tea, coffee or cold drink.

The Reef Rides are free to enter; none CTC members are most welcome.

Do cycle safe on whichever ride you choose and enjoy the gift of cycling.

There is ample free parking on site.

The Reef Rides are not a race. Please be courteous to other road users and enjoy these great rides.

Regards

CTC Wessex Cycling

Saturday 17th February Cycling Weekly Ride

This ride is open to all (paid up members! Theres still time to join the club!!) Poole Wheelers. Please wear your PW kit – which will look fantastic! This is a social ride which will allow people to regroup at the top of hills etc where needed. We are expecting a large turnout so it will be important to split into smaller manageable groups on the road, to allow cars to get passed etc. The full route goes from Sandbanks ferry, Studland Hill, Swanage, langton Matravers hill, Kingston, Corfe Castle, Steeple Hill, down Whiteways, East Lulworth, Wareham, Sandford, Morden, Wimborne

We will be finishing in Wimborne at “The Cafe in the Square” at approx 11.30 where the Committee have unanimously voted to buy a coffee for every member!

Please can you indicate if you are planning to come and which ride option you will be choosing. Lets hope for a fantastic sunny day! Please comment below with Option 1 full, Option 2 medium or Option 3 Wimborne – so we have some idea of numbers

Option 1 (full route approx 43 miles) – Ride Leader Craig

Meet 8.45am @  Sandbanks ferry (9am crossing). If anyone wants a coffee first then meet at the Goat, Lower Parkstone  from 8am

Option 2 (Medium route) – Ride leader Richard

Youth Season Review 2017

Some of the youth training at Bournemouth Velodrome

It’s been a busy 2017 for the youth riders of the club on the track and road.

Icebeakers in Newport
It all started back in January with the National Icebreakers in Newport. We had many riders competing across the 3 weekends gaining some awesome results showing off the club colours. These riders were Oliver P, Digby, Jamie, Charlotte, Tom and Lucy.

National Youth Circuit Series
The National Youth Circuit Series got under way at Hog Hill. This series carried on throughout the summer months with some riders travelling across the country from London to the Isle of Man, Morecambe and Lancaster, Hillingdon, Stirling and finally Scarborough. Some really tough racing for our riders, gaining huge amounts of experience with Lucy finishing 4th overall against the country’s best U16 Girls.

We also had Tom and Jamie travel down to Devon for some regional youth racing both achieving highly each event and doing the club very proud!

Here is Jamie racing hard at Castle Combe

Easter brought around a few big races for the youth riders with Lucy competing in the Youth Tour of Scotland for the South and then many racing at the Castle Combe Easter Classic. In fact, we had a rider in nearly every age category!

Youth Omniums
April also brought the first of the regional youth omniums in Portsmouth, followed by Brighton and of course Poole Wheelers very own event at Bournemouth Velodrome. Our event was incredibly well organised by Simon and Michelle Pettifer which made for the most enjoyable omnium yet! Thanks again to all the sponsors too!

Our riders competing in these included Jamie, Charlie P, Oliver P, Digby, Patrick, Thom-Eidar, Charlotte, Tom, Lucy, Dan, Oliver G, Oliver T, Evie, Ben and Charlie A. For some of our riders it was their first ever race and they sure did everyone proud!

Not only was the team spirit high, but the talent was clearly recognised with Jamie, Oliver G, Evie, Lucy, Oliver P and Charlie P all gaining podium spots across the three rounds.

Ollie G 2nd U10 boy

Ollie P 2nd U12 boy

Jamie 3rd U14 boy at Preston Park

Lucy was 1st U16 girl at every event

Jamie and Lucy earned enough points to qualify for the National Omnium Final at Herne Hill. Both showed the PW colours with strength and determination among the country’s best riders.

Local Circuit Leagues
Throughout the summer we had a number of leagues that our youth riders were attending such as Odd Down, Goodwood, Thruxton, Portsmouth circuits and the Winchester Park and Rides.

Winchester Criterium included the Southern Regional Road Championships again this year with storming rides from the youngsters including a podium finish from Oliver G, and a top 5 from Charlie P and Jamie along with all our youths giving it 100%.

Prudential Youth Grand Prix

The summer was a big one for our riders. Lucy and Jamie both competed in the London Prudential Youth Grand Prix at the Olympic Park for the South Team. First time in a team for Jamie and both performing to their best as always.

Tour of Assen
Tour of Assen for Tom, Jamie, Oliver G, Ben, Oliver P and Charlie P gave some great experience in Holland and some of the toughest racing yet! There’s a great article written by Jamie on our website.

At the same time as Assen, Lucy was racing in the National Youth Track Championships in Newport, a long draining week but plenty of experience gained each day. As we came to the end of the long season we had the UK School Games finals for Lucy and the rest of Team South. She and the other girls raced brilliantly gaining 3rd overall after the short crit races and 3rd by a fraction of a second in a gruelling team time trial.  Lucy herself gained 2nd in the sprints day and 8th in her final youth road race.

Inter-Regional Track Championships
Our final track race for the youth was for Tom and Lucy in the Inter-Regional Track Championships up in Glasgow. Both doing their bit for the team in a tough weekend of racing.

Time Trials
Many of the youth riders have taken part in time trials too over the summer and there are details of those on our Time Trial page. Three riders – Tom, Jamie and Izzy – recently won their categories at the National Closed Circuit competition. So watch this space for further wins.

Dan, Jamie, Izzy, Ben & Tom after their fantastic rides

What a year it has been for all our youth riders with ups and downs for everyone. It’s all learning and amazing experience, and a big thank you to all the organisers and volunteers at all the events across the country.

 

 

And not forgetting Graham our coach and the parents for the constant support and encouragement throughout the season. Thank you!
