All Go Ride and Novice riders (adult), the sessions will resume on Sunday 8th January 2017 at the Tameside Circuit. 3pm – 4.30pm.

Please try to attend and also pass on to your friends about the sessions.

Winter Sessions

Hi all,

As the outdoor Wednesday night has now ended, we have been looking for different venues to hold the indoor roller training sessions.

A room at the Hurst Cross community centre Kings road Ashton.OL68BZ has been booked.
It will commence on Wednesday 14th December at 7 pm to 8-30 pm, the cost will be £2-00 each rider to cover the rental costs.

Kit that is required

Road bike, rollers or turbos, roll mat to place under bike, towels and drinks.

If you do not have any rollers please let us know in order that we can attempt to obtain some spare ones.

Kind regards

The coaching team.

Time Trials

Well done to two of our riders who competed in the Withington Wheelers Open 10 mile TT last weekend, for the seniors was Jim Dowell who posted a time of 25.32 and Tyler Koch who posted a time of 25.23. Tyler came first in his age category scooping a prize, Well done.

Well done to both riders flying the Mossley colours, also Jim competed the following day over in Hull and posted another very respectable time of 22.40 and in Jims own words, “Thats more like it”. Keep it up.

Volunteers Required

The club has two major outstanding events to provide volunteers for this year, those being the NWYL race day held at the Tameside circuit on Saturday 3/9/16 and the Tameside Triathlon held on Sunday 9/10/16.

Both these events will require marshalls etc along with other roles, if you can volunteer for either or both of these events, please contact the volunteer coordinator Nick Jackson.

Any successful club depends on having an active “bank” of volunteers so please try to assist.

CELEBRATE VOLUNTEERS WEEK

Running from the 1st – 12th June 2016 is Celebrate Volunteers Week, on behalf of the club can I thank all the volunteers at the club who make this club a great place to be. Every volunteer is an asset to the club as without them your club may not exist in how it operates today. A few names to mention apart from the coaches and committee are, Jo Wilcox who runs the cafe for the Tuesday nights race league, Jon Spencer, Nick Jackson & Jim Dowell who volunteer to lead rides at weekends, Jims are Thursdays due to his racing, the results of these rides can only be seen by watching those who attend race meetings, they are progressing nicely.

The club needs an active “bank” of volunteers to assist those who are already doing so, so please if you can spare any time when asked a small amount is better than none.

Lastly to who I call ” Mr Mossley”, our very own Fred Hewitt, Fred gives up a considerable amount of his time for the good of the club along with organising the Tameside Race League. I have had a very brief insight into a fraction of what Fred does and I’m surprised he’s still married!!!! Margaret deserves a medal, Freds Knowledge and commitment for the pleasure of the club members and beyond is second to none.

A big thanks to you all.

Wednesday Night Training

Can I remind all members who attend the 7pm skills session, that prior to this at 6pm is the Go Ride session which is conducted at the beginning of the circuit as you enter from the main gate. A few occasions have arose recently where the second gate nearest to the football club has been locked and riders have been riding through the Go Ride session, either on the circuit or on the grass, could I ask that should this gate be locked and the bottom section of the circuit has been risk assessed for that night and a coach is present at the bottom then for safety reasons members push their bikes past the Go Ride session and get on them at the bottom of the first straight.

Memorial Race Day 3rd July 2016

As July is approaching can I ask all members to please promote our Memorial Race Day on the above date and also ask that Mossley members who wish to take part please log into the BC website and then into the events, find the race and enter, lets not leave it until the day and hope there is enough room for you. Also can we promote the day at all events that you may attend between now and race day.

 

Well done to all our riders who took part.

Hetton Lyons Country Park played host to the opening round of the British Cycling National Youth Circuit Series, the Kudos Wealth Management Youth Circuit Races.
Under-14 Boys

Robert Donaldson (Mossley CRT) took the plaudits in the under 14 boys race from a bunch sprint, riding Evan Richards (Towy Riders) and Billy Lazenby (Chevin Cycles) into second and third respectively.

It was an early attack from Oscar Nilsson-Julien (VC Londres) that sparked the race into action, holding the big field at bay for the opening five laps. Junior Jackson (Mossley RT), Hugo Lutz-Atkinson (Speedflex RT) and Guto Dayfydd (Towy Riders) tried to jump across but the main field was too quick and the four were easily swallowed up.

Lichfield’s Emile Alexander instigated the attack with six laps remaining but was allowed to get any kind of gap. A counter attack from Jackson again wasn’t allowed to gather any gap, Alexander hanging on his every move and jumping over the Mossley rider on the penultimate lap. But as the bell rang out the field was back together to ready themselves for the big sprint, Donaldson having the legs to take the win.

Mossley Members riding for Charity.

Three members and two riders who support Mossley on a few rides etc today took part in the Willow Wood “Big bike ride”, this was a challenging ride with a few tough short climbs around the back of Hartshead Pike and Berry Brow.

Albeit the ride distance was 20 mile, in total they rode 27 mile by the time they had got to the circuit and home, an average total of £300 was raised by the Mossley Three in sponsorship to support the Willow Wood hospice, which Mossley CRT worked closely with on a few occasions last year. Well done to Sue, Kirstie & Martin along with the support from Paul and Toby.
