Wednesday Night Rides – Your Club Needs YOU!

Dear all

It’s great to see so many riders already signed up to ride our Wednesday night clubs rides – about 60 riders in week 1! – and we just need a little bit of support from everyone to keep these nights running. Poole Wheelers is run by the members for the members, meaning we each have a part to play in helping the club run smoothly.

Ros volunteers her time week in, week out to make us all lovely hot drinks post-ride. However, we also need someone to open up and set things up ready for her each week. If everyone covers this for just one week, we’ll soon have a full complement of volunteers to keep this going throughout the season.

In short, the week you volunteer, you’ll need to open the pavilion, put the forms out on the table and get things ready for the hot drinks. More details are given in the link below, where you can sign up for the week you want to cover.

Put your name down now and we’ll be sorted for the season in no time!

Thank you.

Please see below link to The British Cycling South Region Club News .

This covers all cycling disciplines and is well worth a read. Some of our youth riders may well be interested in the development sessions taking place over the winter at Newport on the track and Oddown on the road – plus there are details on the Wessex Cyclo-cross league which got under way last weekend with several Poole Wheelers riding.

As I said above have a read
