To all the club BMXers, Friday night sessions will run from 6-8pm to come in line with the parks summer opening times. Please also note a slight price increase to £4 so Wednesday and Friday are now the same fee.
We are having a new intake for road and Mountain biking to start after Easter. If you have previously contacted us regarding joining, please check your emails as details have been sent out. Anyone wishing to join should complete the form on the ‘About’ page of this site.
Please note that at this stage we are only looking at taking riders over the age of 8yrs and any parental help is greatly appreciated in running the club. If we have too many applicants, your name will go onto the list to be contacted for our next intake.
Club Cycloark is looking to expand the adult section with the introduction of regular rides around the county. It is hoped that these rides will start shortly, with rides of varying distances to suit all of you either as a regular rider, or a ‘returning’ cyclist. Please keep an eye out for more information in the coming days. Information will also appear on the Facebook group page and Twitter.
Rotarians are already planning to welcome you on Sunday 9th April to the 31st Annual sponsored ride through North Kent starting and finishing at the Promenade beside the River Thames at Gravesend with the 15, 30 and 45 mile routes to choose from.
For 2017 we will again be supporting this very worthwhile charity as main beneficiary – ellenor which runs a hospice at Northfleet plus home care in the Gravesham, Dartford and Swanley areas..
Your efforts also let us help further Rotary supported charities!
‘On Your Bike’ is intended as a ‘Fun Ride’, putting the fun into fundraising. The Rotary Club of Gravesend is again pleased to acknowledge help from Gravesend Cyclists Touring Club.
To help more charities we need more sponsorship money and more riders. There were 800 plus in 2016. We want 1,000 in 2017.
Sponsorship of you is key to our success. Ensure sponsor’s names are there to contact after the day. You can show your control card or certificate to prove you did it!
There is also the ability to have the donation gift aided. See how to do this on the sponsorship form we enclose with your entry pack and which will need to be returned to the organisers. We must have your sponsors’ full addresses to be able to claim Gift Aid.
All you keen route cyclists who take part — get Virgin Money Giving too!
I’m looking at a ride Tuesday evening around the Cobham area, starting about 6.30pm. Adults only, so who’s up for it. Just make sure you have good lights as the woods are dark!
Results now include 8th October 2016
Please see the attached link from last weeks coaching session. Hopefully this will continue this week with medals given out for the winners in a couple of weeks time.
