Get Involved.

June 23, 2009

Seen this on LFGSS.


Start: Pattingham Village Hall 8.30am Sunday 19th July 2009

Once again we are pleased to present our annual cycling challenge, open to all cyclists, this is not a race but a challenging ride through Staffordshire and Shropshire’s beautiful countryside.

A change of scene this year, with the first two thirds of the event, free from all steep hills etc. First running through Staffordshire, then into flat Shropshire, but watch for the sting in the tail on the last third. All mainly on quite or unclassified roads, with proper facilities at the morning and afternoon check stops.

A warm welcome is extended to all our regular supporters, plus any new comers who wish to come along and experience a thoroughly enjoyable day out on the bike at your own pace. Usual light refreshments available (all included in price) at the start, morning and afternoon stops and finish. Lunch can be taken at any of the wonderful village pubs that you will pass by on the way round. Small prize awarded to all finishers.

Entry fee: £7.00 (in advance)

Entry Forms: Gil Parkes, 2 Trimpley Gardens, Penn, Wolverhampton WV4 5PG

Tel: 07949 841578

Anyone up for it… sounds like a nice jolly day out cycling to me and I quite fancy it. I reckon it would be real nice to get out with some ‘older’ cats on their tourers.

Wolverhampton Track Training.

March 18, 2009

Found on the London FGSS forum.

If anyone is interested, my club has started it’s Monday night fixed wheel training sessions at Aldersley stadium from 8 to 9pm.

It’s open to riders of all abilities, just bring your fixed bike (no brakes, drop bars) a helmet and three of your finest pounds. We do have club bikes that can be used, but club members get priority and you’ll need shoes with Keo cleats.

The sessions cover basic track and group riding skills along with track race practise (Devil, Points, Kierin – we have two dernys) along with some Team pursuiting and the chance to set times in a flying 200m, Kilo etc

Summer is only around the corner and I think this may just be the ticket to shift some of those winter gained pounds, so you may find me going along for a bit of a sprint closeley followed by a vomit.
