Membership – Time to renew.!

Hi Everyone,
Its time to renew your Poole Wheelers Membership (Sorry)
If you joined after 1st Sept your membership runs through to the end of 2018 so you are OK – All members should have had an e-mail today.
Over the last 12 months the club has really grown and gone from strength to strength in so many ways and we hope you do want to continue your membership of the club.
Costs are Senior £20 Junior (U18) or Youth (U16) £10 or Family £30.00 – Second Claim £5.00 A Bargain I’m sure you agree.
The easier way to renew is through the British Cycling Web site –
( In the e-mail sent to all members earlier today was an attached guide on how to use this system if you have not done so before) – If you need any help with this do get back to me.
To use this system you will need your current Poole Wheelers membership number – will be on your 2017 membership card if you don’t have this just drop me an e-mail and I will forward it on to you. If you are a British Cycling member it will be the same as your BC membership number.
I know in doing it this way it will cost you another £1.00 – but it does allow you to update all your details and select which e-mails – if any you want to receive from the club. It also is a great help to me and Ros our treasurer as the money then gets paid straight into the club account.
If for any reason to can’t or don’t want to pay this way they is always cash or cheque that can be given to Ros or myself.
Remember the club is run by the members for the members so if you have any ideas or are able to help please do come forward, lots of people doing a little is so much better than a few doing a lot.
I hope you all do rejoin and I look forward to seeing you all out on your bikes in 2018
If you are not yet a member but want to join you can use the same link to do so.

Event this evening @ Rockets & Rascals

Hi everyone, I know Simon or Michelle have posted this to our Facebook page but I have just found this in my junk emails so thought I’d post on here also!

Tickets are £5.00 see link below


Good evening Rachel,

I would like to invite you on behalf of KitBrix for mulled wine (or soft drink) at the KitBrix LIVE Event at Rockets & Rascals Tuesday 5th December (1815-2000).

Cherie Pridham is the only women managing a team at UCI Continental level in the British Cycling scene. Cherie has ridden for European teams, including the Swiss based Mazza Team and now takes on the challenge of a new team for the 2018 season.

She has also competed with distinction in seven Tour de France Féminen races (Women’s Tour de France). She finished the race all seven times and gained the ‘Most Combative Rider’ award on two occasions. In 2004 Cherie was invited to ride for a top French ladies team, ES Gervais Lilas based near Paris, and was placed 6th whilst competing with the team in the GP le Pré Saint Gervais race.

More details are available on the link below but we would love to have you with us on the evening. Tickets are £5 and go to support youth in cycling initiatives.

If you are happy to share this with your club/organisation and on social we would be very grateful.

Thank you!

Robert Aldous

KitBrix Director | The Agency Business Director

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!

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.

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.

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!
