Annual Club Dinner

20 Oct
October 20, 2014

Saturday 15th November Club
Abbeydale Sports Club
This year will again be a 3 course sit down dinner followed by much the same as the past few years, a BRIEF giving of prizes, a raffle and quick resume of the year’s activities from Brendon.

The meal will be served at 7:30 this year and we hope all the prizes will be handed out by 9:30 so there will be plenty of time for drinking and socialising at the bar.

Tickets will be £17.50, the menu will be Roasted Pepper Soup, Pan Seared Chicken, Classic Apple Pie for dessert followed by coffee and mints.
There is also a vegetarian option of Vegetable Wellington.

Smart dress please, no jeans and trainers.
We hope to see as many of you there as possible.

Contact either Simon, Brendon or Danny to let us know how many tickets you’d like. We would like payment for tickets before the dinner so that we’re not collecting money on the night. You can pay by cash or cheque, PayPal via the Club website or directly into the Club’s bank account.

Manchester Velodrome Track Session – Sun.19 Oct

20 Sep
September 20, 2014

We have been trying to arrange a Track session at the Manchester Velodrome for some time now but it is permanently booked up. Yesterday however Barry Ferguson managed to secure a slot due to a cancellation for Sunday 19 Oct 2014 between 3 pm and 5pm.
That is only 4 weeks away but other than that it might have been next March before we got a session and that wouldn’t have been guaranteed.

The session is open to anyone, whether you already ride the track league or you’ve never even ridden a track bike at all, come along and give it a go.

The format will follow our previous events from a couple of years ago so we need around 25 – 30 people to cover the cost of the hire of the track and an accredited coach.

Cost should be about £12 per person providing we get the numbers or £24 if you need to hire a bike as well.

Attached is an entry form to complete and return to Barry, so please spread the word and get those entries in, this could be your one chance this winter to ride the boards at Manchester.

Tumby’s Road Race

11 Jun
June 11, 2014

First and foremost the date has changed from Sunday 10th August to Sunday 3rd August.
Steve has kindly agreed to move our event forward a week so as not to clash with the newly organised Pontefract Grand Prix on the afternoon of the 10th.
With the recent trouble we’ve been having with road race courses in Nottinghamshire Steve is hoping to run Tumby’s Road Race on a larger circuit at Braithwell that is also used for the Out of the Saddle Road Race later in the year.
With the bigger circuit also comes the need for more marshals so I’m asking now rather than a week before the event, if YOU can help Steve out and not leave it to him to rally round his family and friends at the last minute.
This is the second of four events that the Club is promoting this year so please try and do your bit and keep this and other events going for the future of our sport.
It’s a 10 o’clock start and the event is 68 mile so it should be all over by about 1pm.
Steve can be contacted by email, pigeon post or the good old dog and bone, his details have been circulated via email but contact us through this website and we’ll forward your details.
