The events officer for Welsh Cycling is currently collecting names of those interested in training to become Commissaires, whether it be downhill, road racing or any of the other disciplines. Those interested in becoming a Cycling Commisaire are encouraged to contact Hanah Pole on hannah.pole@welshcycling.co.uk on or before 10th December 2013.

Just a quick reminder about the M-A League/GCA Presentations Evening; it is this Wednesday (27 Nov) at the Penrhos Arms, Llanfairpwll. Starting at 7.00pm.

Each year Club members compete in a series of open time trial competitions.

Basic Cycle Maintenance Class.0

I’ve been approached by a few people about the “how to maintain your bike at home, and make repairs to it whilst out on the road” classes. This would be things like; replacing brake and gear cables, indexing gears, checking for wear (bearings, chains and cassettes etc) fitting new chains and to the correct length, replacing brake pads, repairing punctures or replacing inner tubes, plus other handy hints to keep you going out there on the road should something unexpected happen.

I’ve spoken to Dewi Jones and he has offered an extra two hour evening session. This will be on Monday, 2nd December starting at 6.00pm in his workshop in Talysarn. The cost would be £10 per person. Please e-mail or see at the Thursday evening Turbo Session me if your interested.
