We will this winter have 5 sessions at Calshot along with Palmer Park from Reading – we will be restricted to 20 riders per session I will collect names nearer the time for now here are the dates for your Diaries

07/03/20 – 14.00-17.00

 

Cost £5.00 per session

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.

Poole Wheelers WINS Club of the Year!

Fantastic news: Poole Wheelers has won Cycling Weekly’s Club of the Year 2019!

Our massive increase in female members, racing success and use of social media to boost membership are among the reasos the judging panel selected us as winners of this prestigious award. You can read a more detailed summary of the nomination that was submitted here.

Graham Hurst (left) and Craig Weston (right) were the committee members selected to attend the awards ceremony in London on 28th November, and as you can see they both scrubbed up well for this black tie event!
