    HAPPENINGS AROUND THE CLUB


    XMAS IN JULY HAS SOLD OUT!!

    The early birds caught the worm with this event.

    PLEASE NOTE THERE IS NO FRIDAY NIGHT DINNER DUE TO XMAS IN JULY BEING HELD

    *********************

    ENDURO EVENT 

    Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st July

    This event is being held this weekend and is made up of 7 separate downhill runs.  Each age category and gender have different runs to do, with the top men’s age groups doing all 7 runs. The fastest combined time over all the runs produces the winners. Once at the bottom of each run, cyclists must get themselves back to the top to do the next run.  You only get 1 attempt at each run so any falls or bike fails can destroy your chances!  They have a set time period to complete all  their runs.

    We encourage members to come and watch all events but watching the little kids race is incredible!!!!  The atmosphere at these events is epic!!!

    Come along and join the fun over the weekend!!
