We have decided to move the Youth Coaching session due to take place on April 16th to April 23rd to avoid Easter bank holiday weekend.
We try to make the coaching sessions the firs t and third Sunday of the month unless they clash with something.
Session on April 2nd is unaffected
Full details of April sessions and ticket purchasing is available here – http://www.pedalmonkey.co.uk/calendar/
Following the success of last year we have once again been asked if we want to do a couple of laps of the pro circuit ahead of the Tour Series race in Durham city.
Different to last year in that its a Saturday night and the laps will be just before the pros jump onto the circuit.
Unfortunately I’m away drag racing so if we want to do it it needs someone to head it up.
I did most of the hard work last year so its not a big job.
Who wants to head it up?
If no one steps up by the 26th March I will say we cant do it.
Details from Mike at the Council
