Tour de France Club 2016

We are delighted to announce that we have found a way of all of us getting together to watch the ITV4 Highlights of the Tour on most nights of the TdF.

The idea is to have a place to meet each night to watch the highlights and enjoy the race together.

Venues

The club will mostly be based at the Stone Bridge Inn – Stonebridge, Durham DH1 3RX – http://www.thestonebridge.co.uk/

The Stonebridge Inn serves great food and makes a decent coffee so its not all about beer. They also allow in dogs and kids so fetch along the family!

The Rowing Club will host us on July 6th and 18th which are also our club social meetings

Some days still have football on so we can have the TVs then ( 2nd, 7th and 10th ) But all other days are fine.

Hosts

There will be no formal host so its a case of whoever turns up turns up. The more you make the effort to attend the better it will be for everyone.

Calling all ladies! (Again)

Durham City Velo CC run a fantastic ladies-only skills session every sunday evening from 5:30-6:30 at Sniperly Park and Ride in Durham City. Initially the programme was supposed to run for 6 weeks, but following a great success we’ve decided to carry the sessions on. We’ve had 27 ladies turn up, and would love to see more! we’ve got a huge space to work with so numbers isn’t an issue.

The sessions focus on a variety of skills from beginner to advanced levels – from raising one hand from the bars and learning how to use clip-in pedals to riding with no hands! We never push anyone out of their comfort zone, and we can cater for anyone – whatever the bike, the person, or their pace. Come along to gain a bit of fitness, increase your bike handling skills and have a laugh! We like to present an atmosphere of fun and encouragement with a strong emphasis on learning –  you won’t leave feeling like you haven’t had a good time or that you haven’t learned anything!

The sessions are ran by British Cycling coaches and assistants. Every session also is supported by the Pedalmonkey cafe, so refreshments are never far away! We love feedback and suggestions – if you have something you want to work on, mention it to one of the coaches and it’ll probably be in the next session. Any questions, feel free to either message me, comment on this post or post in the DCV Facebook Page.

DCV Tour de France club – would you come?

Ive had an idea!

Would members like to have a Tour de France club where we meet somewhere and watch the Tour highlights each night?

Im thinking

  • ITV4 highlights 7pm to 8pm each night as most places will have ITV4.
  • Pub in Durham where all of us including kids can go
  • Somewhere that serves beer, coffee and food

Heres the TV schedule

Please answer the question below so I can see if its worth organising.
