Sunday Road Rides - organised rides will be starting again from 14th October. The group coordinators will be:
- Group 1 - Andy Fardon
Group 2 - Guy Dobson
Group 3 - Charlie Baker
Early Birds - Tim Johns
The group coordinators role will be to find one or two people to lead each weeks ride and make sure the ride leaders understand what they have to do. ALL club members should volunteer to help out on at least one ride throughout the autumn/winter/spring. To sign up to lead a ride visit the relevant thread on this forum and post a reply with the group and date you would like to lead. The group coordinator can help you with route planning and even a suggested route if you don't have anything in mind. Charlie also has paid for a license to alllow us to map each route and publish it for download from the site so everyone can print off a copy. So do your bit and sign up!
Lead MTB Rides - With the ever increasing popularity of off road triathlon events such as Xterra the club is planning a series of introductory mountain bike rides lead by a qualified mountain bike leader. Along side this, a route will be suggested for more advanced riders to try under their own steam; with a compulsory cafe stop at the finish. More information will be available on the forum/website soon with the first date planned for November. Rides will run every two weeks during the winter and will continue monthly during the summer.
Turbo Sessions: - We will again have 3 weekly turbo sessions beginning in November:
- Tues 8pm-9pm at Moss Side
Fri 7.30-9pm at Stretford
Sat 10-11am at Moss Side
The saturday session was scheduled to start this weekend however we decided to delay the start till November to give everyone a chance to recover for a month. We will use the saved money to buy fans for Moss Side to make the session just that little bit easier!
Brick Session: The ever popular brick sessions run by Nick Thomas will be back again in April at Longford Park. The exact date will be confirmed nearer the time.
Track Sessions: - The wednesday track session will continue throughout the year. Depending on numbers an assistant coach may be brought in to work with Nick. We have funding for an additional track session for 6 months of the year. As track time is difficult to come across we are still sorting exactly where and when but Monday evening at either Longford Park or Regional Athletics look favourite. The start date will likely be January. More information will be available soon.
Off Road, Park and Hill Sessions - Building on the success of Nick's Winter Scrambles from last year and Jonathan Dabbs Hill Sessions we will be running an additional run session most weeks (except when there is a XC race). A list of planned training will be available on the site soon and will include session on the XC courses for the Manchester League, Fartlek and Interval sessions in local parks as well as hill and off-road sessions. More details soon.
