This Saturday (7 Oct) will be the start of navigated off-road rides. These are two hour or more rides targeted at those racing cx, with the aim of improving skills and endurance. Key though is they are about having fun.
The rides are open to those that the coaches believe have the skills and fitness to do the rides, so please ask. It is best that you have done some of the cx sessions at GSP before venturing out. They are aimed at U16 and above.
These are NOT coached rides but we look after each other. Numbers are limited by which experienced riders are going out.
What you need :- Appropriate clothing for the weather, helmet , gloves, glasses etc. Very well maintained bike :- CX or MTB. If its not working properly you can’t join as it will only break once out!
Ability to fix bike:– Two spare inner tubes, tyre levers, pump, ideally spare chain links and multi-tool
Other:– Water, energy bar, anything you need for allergies
We set off at 9am prompt and this is going to be enforced so you need to be at the track early. We aim to be back at 11am but conditions and “mechanicals” can’t guarantee this.
See you Saturady
‘Isabel Hospice invites members to a new event – ‘Hospice 100’, a partnership with Sportive UK. The event will be taking place on the 17th September 2017.
The scenic ride starting at Freeman College in Buntingford has a 21 mile, 42 mile, 75 mile and 100 mile ride on offer. With a choice of 4 distances, club members will hopefully be able to find something that suits all abilities.
The ride includes feed stations, energy drinks and snacks, online published results, fully signed route, mechanic and chip timing and much more.
It costs £20 for the 21 mile ride and £25 for the longer rides and we are encouraging cyclists to raise as much sponsorship as possible on top of their entry fee so you can help us continue to provide vital end of life of care to patients and families across East Hertfordshire.
All members a 20% discount off the entry fee, all you will need to do is type ‘HOSPICE20’ at the checkout.
