Sky Ride 2015

Skyride 2015 - a fantastic celebration of cycling today in Leeds. It was great to see so many Leeds Mercury CC riders out and about riding with their families proof that we are a family orientated cycling club. While riding with Hannah and Ben we met Esben, Lennart, Adam, George, Arthur, Harriet, Alfie, Orla, Frankie and Byran and I'm sure Elora and other were out there somewhere. Our club is going from strength to strength - well done everyone 





WHAT WAS YOUR FAVOURITE PART? 

Mine were the stunt riders jumping from car to van to bar to steps - amazing balance. Please comment below adding your favourite parts of today. Please email any photos to leedsmercurycc@gmail.com
Thanks for today.

Great Selby Bike Ride

We rode in the Great Selby bike ride yesterday which was fab, over 1000 riders of all abilities, lots of kids riding. Elora, Orla and Anna easily did the 25 mile course, along with Eughan and Keelan - Paul, Angus Rus and John chasing them down! 




We would like to make this a club event next year - look out on the calendar for further details

GO RIDE RACING SESSIONS


On Saturday 30th May, we hosted our first of six Go Ride racing sessions. The children took part at U8, U10 and U12 in a variety of races including a time trial, sprint, handicap and The Devil. The children really enjoyed the racing, pushed their legs to win their races and, best of all, competed with a smile on their faces.
We hope the parents enjoyed the first of our races and will be back over the next five weeks to make the series a fantastic family event.
For me the highlight of the morning was Alfie Green's sportsmanship. During the U8 one lap sprint, Alfie overtook Ben Gaunt on the last corner, then Ben came back and pipped him on the line. Alfie went straight over to Ben, 'high fived' him and said 'well done' (see picture top right).


Grass Track cancelled tonight 1st June 2015

Closed circuit training

A number of the club had a superb training session at Brooksbank closed road circuit in Elland last Saturday, it was fantastic to be able to ride safely at speed over a long distance - we roughly calculated the children rode 8 miles in an hour. Well done to all the riders the next session is on the 9th May at 4.30pm.
