Date Fixing Meeting 2019:

The 2019 Date Fixing members for members of Buxton Cycyling Club will take place on Wednesday 6th March 2019 at Rems bar in Chapel-en-le-Frith at 7pm. At this meeting we will agree the dates and courses for 2019 club time trial events.

Velodrome session for Buxton CC

Chris Lea has organized a session for Buxton CC members to ride the Manchester velodrome, on Thursday 28th February 2019, from 8pm to 10pm. Anyone wanting to ride just needs to contact Chris via e-mail or phone (01298 25642) to reserve a place – of which 16 are available. The session is suitable for novice and experienced riders.  

Details from Chris below: 

If there are more people who want to ride than there are places, priority will be given to members who have not already ridden at the Velodrome with the Club, but only up to 28th January, as it’s not fair on those who have already ridden if they don’t know for sure whether they have a place or have been bumped off the list by a novice. I will still reserve places for members after this date and nearer to 28th February, if places are still available. I would like to reserve the right to invite non-club members if, nearer the date of the session, it looks like we might be short of filling all places. I’ll reserve places on a first come first served basis, subject to the proviso for novices. 

The cost will be £22.86 each for track hire & British Cycling coaching. Bike hire at £12.80 (concessions available) is payable to the Velodrome on arrival. Those without Look cleats or with Look Keo cleats (the Keo won’t fit the hire bike pedals) will need to also pay for shoe hire at £5.40 each on arrival.

People can pay me £22.86 by cash or cheque in advance or on the night. The Club will pay the full amount for track & coach hire, so I will just forward the money to our treasurer Nick Sharpe.

I will reply to all those reserving a place and nearer the time provide more information on how it all works, what to bring, etc. and arrange hire of track bikes.
