Forthcoming Events for your Diary0

Over the next couple of months there are a number of events that everyone in the Club are invited to attend.

Firstly on Tuesday, 22nd October is the Club AGM. This will be held at The Galeri in Caernarfon, 7.00 pm start.  All club members are encouraged to come along and give their support. In particular those who wish to make suggestions of how the Club is to be directed, what they really want from the Club, or if they would like to take a slightly more active role in the direction and organisation of the club. We’ll also decide what races we should organise in 2014, talk about winter rides and the proposal of chain gang training sessions amongst other things. If you are unable to attend and would like to raise something at the meeting, then send me an e-mail and I will bring it to everyone’s attention during the evening.

The meeting will last a couple of hours at the most. Hope to see you there….. The first round of drinks and the bag of nuts are on me again!!

The second is the Winter Turbo Training Sessions. The first will be on Thursday, 7th November at The Beacon Climbing Centre (the old Barcud TV studio building) on the Cibyn Industrial Estate, Caernarfon. We have a large room to use from 6.45 thro’ 8.15 pm. On this first evening riders are asked to arrive early (6.30 pm). This is so you can be directed to the exclusive parking area and access to the building, and not waste training time finding your way round the place. The Club has a few turbo trainers for members to use, but if you have your own please bring it along. The sessions will last approx. an hour and will  be an effective way to work specific metabolic systems, thus stimulating improvements in your fitness. This also means turbo sessions are conducted at the correct intensity for riders. Leg-speed, strength and other areas can be worked on, depending what needs improving, all in a safe environment and with other people.

The Club has a pair of competition rollers. We propose holding a Competition Night once a month (just to do something a little different), details of which will be confirmed nearer the time.The cost for the regular sessions will be £20.00 for ten sessions per rider (paid in full on the first night, and non refundable) . For non Club members it will be £30.00.

And finally. Each year Club members compete in a series of open time trial competitions (The Gwynedd Cycling Association and The Mon Arfon League). On Wednesday, 27th November there will be a dual presentation evening starting at 7.00 pm at The Penrhos Arms in LlanfairPG, Mon. The Club has won “The Club” titles in both competitions and some of our Club members ( Gareth McGuinness, Garry Ellis, Alun Williams, Wayne Owen and Mathew Nottingham) have taken numerous pieces of silver ware in the individual competitions. Please come along, whether your a winner or not, and support this very important evening at a great venue and enjoy the social side of cycling.
