Cannock MTB Trip

Pictures can paint many words, and on our recent trip to Cannock Chase, 11 members took a day off work to experience the delights this West Midlands trail centre had to offer. Unfortunately one member decided to use the ride as a painful learining experience and came off worse..watch the video here , then read a little more about it on the Blog

Sherwood Pines MTB Race

Four of our members raced at Sherwood Pines this weekend (1st July) , two riders racing for the first time..see a little of their race in this youtube video here, especially relevent is seeing fate gain the upper hand on Lee in revenge for embarrasing Conor several weeks earlier at Cannock !

Jan 2012 - New Year is Here

2012 is Here !!

Welcome to 2012 everyone, and a bumper cycling year it promises to be !

We will shortly be sending every member a club annual report telling you all about our plans for the coming year, but theres a lot to look forward to including:-

  • A senior coaching infrastructure to develop your fitness whatever level you ride at
  • Our own off-road training base for seniors and for Go-Ride coaching sessions
  • Promoting our biggest ever MTB race as part of the Midlands XC series
  • Club Time Trials, Hill Climbs and Audax events littered throughout the entire year
  • Development of cycling trails and routes in and around Bolsover

Dec 2011 - Ride Register

 Officially, there is now no escape !

One of the key duties of the club as a whole is to ensure that we are doing our utmost to make sure that our members are getting the most out of their cycling.

We are now building a ride register and recording who participates in rides and events. From this we can spot riders who might need support getting back into the routine, who might be looking for something we dont yet offer, or who might have an injury that can be helped into recovery through our contacts.

Incentives will exist to encourage riders out...rider of the month perhaps? certainly a club member of the year !

Oct 2011 - B&DCC Power Struggle

Ive worked out that our Turbo sessions could quite easily start to generate some Club Funds.

As they continue to grow in popularity, if we could find a way to hook them up generators  , ten riders at around 400W for an hour at 21p/kWh would generate 84p per session  through the feed in tariff

Oct 2012 - Congratluations

Congratulations early on this year go to John & Rachel Albanese on the birth of their baby daughter, Cora

Born on Monday 2nd January the club wishes this growing family heartfelt congratulations..

Anybody looking to trade up from bike seats and balance bikes should get oin touch with john through the website. John will happily accept any handmedowns as long as the bikes have infant aero bars fitted !

Oct 2011 - Turbo Sessions are Back

Our succesful Indoor Turbo sessions return this winter on Thursday nights (replacing Spiraliing)

This year they are held at Clowne Cricket Club, High Leys Road, Clowne...6:45pm meet for a 7pm start.

A 1 hour session using a coaching DVD will help keep the fitness through winter and have you entering 2012 with good legs reday to meet your goals head on !

August 2011 - Fat vs Thin race

Thanks to all who supported our latest racing efforts at Birch Hall, Dronfield on the 25th

The battle of the cross riders versus MTB riders was hard fought , but eventually Christian Aucote of Lloyds Cycles RT reigned victorious over Kyle Burleigh of Notts Clarion on his cross bike

Results are now available on the link below, a series of photos should follow very soon
