Cyclo Cross - go on, you might as well.

With the start of the cyclo-cross season soon to be upon us, why not have a go at this autumn and winter sport. Its great fun. There are two leagues in the north east to choose from. - and
You don't need to ride all the events - simply turn up in good time with an old mountain bike or racer with knobbly tyres and don't wear white!  Circuits are usually around a park or woodland and you won't get lost or dropped - although you might get lapped; but there's no shame in that as by then, no one really knows who the leaders are!

The two local websites are and  See you there.

Bruce is Ironman

Congratulations to Stu B who completed the Bolton Ironman Triathlon. After training hard all spring, he finished with ease and had enough energy to go shopping at the Trafford Centre the next day. Rumours have it he's considering where to get his tattoo. Well done, Ironman.

Virgin Money Cyclone Sportive

A few club members rode the Virgin Cyclone Sportive today. The HQ for this popular sportive is at Gosforth, Newcastle.  There are 3 rides to choose from; a 30 miler, 60 miles or 100 miles through the sometimes testing, but always scenic Northumberland around Whalton, Forestburngate, Rothbury, Bellingham and Stamfordham. Stuart B who is 4 weeks away from competing in the Bolton Ironman Triathlon got round the 60 mile course with Ally Mac in 3:52. Bob S and Craig D were also competing. Well done lads. Plenty of compliments about the kit.

Morpeth Duathlon

Nick A, Stu B, Ally M and Ian S took part in the Morpeth Duathlon at the weekend.  Tim M (nearly member) also took part. It was good to see the black and white jerseys scything through the field. The conditions were excellent for this World Championship qualifier. Ian S was beset with problems and has vowed to fight another day but everyone had a good day out. Thanks also for the support along the route. Roll on the summer.

South Shields CXNE

Nick A, Allymac, Stu B and newbie Davey R got stuck into the CXNE cyclo-cross event held at South Shields on boxing day. A flat but technical course had been laid out with a number of tight turns. Well attended, the thawing frost provided a slippy, muddy and testing surface for the competitors. Holding off the fancy dress turkey, the lads blasted through the course to finish well down in the rankings... but as always, they looked the most stylish as they carved their way around the course......
