Lots have been happening in the last couple of months and some exciting things are happening in the next two months up until Christmas. Here are some dates for your diary:-
7th November 2011
The next kit order will be placed on the 7th November. If anyone wants to order a jersey or any other bit of kit then get your order into Lorraine on this email address as soon as possible. Although the order should be back by Christmas we have been asked by the manufacturers not to guarantee this so please be aware if you wish to order anything for a Christmas present it may not arrive. We now have socks which are plain black with Beacon Wheelers written in yellow around the ankle - ideal stocking filler.
9th November 2011, 6.30pm onwards, Frenchfield Pavilion
We have Tim Buckle from British Cycling coming to talk to members regarding winter training and diet (what you should be eating and when). Tim has suggested that members could bring their rollers/turbo's along and he will go through an example training programme. This is open to all members from those who are competitive to those who enjoy a gentle ride at the weekends. Please let me know however if you intend to bring your rollers as space is limited.
12th November 2011, 10.30am, Salt Ayre, Lancaster
The winter under 18 cluster sessions between Salt Ayre, Beacon Wheelers, Border City Wheelers and Furness Future Flyers will start on this date. These sessions are for riders wanting to increase sprint skills, learn racing tactics and how to race. These can be fast paced sessions so riders will need to be prepared to work hard. Riders should ensure they have the appropriate clothing on for the winter weather and enough food and drink for the session. The sessions will run fortnightly on the follow ing dates: 26/11, 10/12, 07/01/12, 21/01, 04/02, 18/02, 03/03 and 27/03. If it snows or severe cold then the session may be cancelled - check website for details.

We are also looking for new committee members to help us move the club forward, we have vacancies for general members and also roles such as funding officer. Please come along and support us.
14th December 2011, 7.00pm, Frenchfield Pavilion
This is the last evening of the year for the roller/turbo night. The new sessions will start on Thursday 12th January at 7.00pm. These nights have proved highly successful, with many riders enjoying the training sessions. So why not come down and have a go - all ages welcome, just bring your bike, rollers or turbo. We do have an odd spare set so if you are really keen to have a go then let us know and we can make sure we have a pair for you to use.
