Leeds Mercury will be supporting this event I will be entering 4 teams of riders so if you'd like to join us please let me know the cost per rider will be £4.  Last year we had a wonderful day out, it was fantastic to ride togther as a club. The route is fully marshalled, mostly flat and is suitable for all riders who can complete 25 miles. However the roads are NOT closed and so children MUST be accompanied and ride WITH their parent/carer.

Hello all
We are really pleased to share with you that our evening sessions at the Brownlee centre & cycle circuit will start on Tuesday 25th April.  Our session time is 7-8:30pm, please ensure you arrive promptly to start cycling at 7pm.
The session will be split into 2 time slots, 7-7:45pm and 7:45 – 8:30pm.  The earlier session will be for younger & less confident riders working on the lower track area whilst older riders & adults attending can ride the upper section of the track.  At 7:45pm, younger riders will finish for the evening and a session will be run by the coaches using the full track for older riders & adults. 
Families are welcome to stay with their younger riders in the pavilion if waiting for older riders participating in the second session.  We do not have sole use of the pavilion, so young people must not be left unaccompanied in the pavilion.  LMCC cannot be responsible for looking after cyclists not on the track.
At the moment, we do not know what refreshments etc. are available to buy in the pavilion, so it would be wise to bring a drink and snack with you.
As this is a separate session to our Saturday morning club we will require all parents to complete the attached consent form, 1 per child.  Forms will be available at the session but riders will not be allowed on the track until a form has been completed. 
There is no cost for the first session (25th April), as it is our first opportunity to ride on the track and see how the cycle circuit works.  It will be a come & play session rather than a formal coaching session. 

From the 2nd May, the cost of the evening session will be £3 for LMCC members, £4 for non-members and £4.50 for an adult & child combination.
There will be no Tuesday evening session on 30th May 2017 and 29th August 2017 as the circuit is closed.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask myself or Angie.

We are really proud to announce that Leeds Mercury CC have achieved British Cycling's Go-Ride Clubmark status. Clubmark is an acknowledged cross sport scheme introduced by Sport England for community sports clubs to recognise the high standards of welfare, equity, coaching and club management.

Georgina has been working extremely hard to collate together the portfolio of evidence to show we met the criteria, including suitable qualifications, regular sessions and club development plans.

So can we all pass on our huge thanks to Georgina and to Ian for enabling Leeds Mercury to achieve this status.
