2018 BCW TT Events

Following a reshuffle of BCW open event organisers there is an opportunity for volunteers to organise the following events for Border City Wheelers in 2018:

  • Open 50 currently held on Keswick based course
  • Open 25 currently held on Keswick based course
  • Greystoke SpoCo circuit

Full support will be available if it’s your first time, and it’s not quite as daunting as it sounds.  If interested please contact the Time Trial Secretary, Howard Cain.

BCW Coaching Opportunity

‘Border City Wheelers have opportunities for new coaches to join their existing team.  With completion of the new Harraby track, the club would like to recruit two or three additional coaches to help deliver junior Go Ride and coaching sessions.  There would also be the opportunity to coach senior riders.

Full training will be provided through British Cycling to gain the qualification and it is likely that the courses will be fully funded.  The time commitment required for the training is two weekend courses and a small amount of private study.  It is quite possible that some future courses will be run in Carlisle as British Cycling are keen to see local clubs increase their coaching offer.

In return you will gain a new qualification with useful personal skills and become part of this exciting new cycling development in Carlisle with one of the region’s leading clubs.  Any of the existing club coaches would be pleased to answer questions or queries. They are – Richard Harris, Kate Bent, Dave Rawle, Stan Brown and Cath Lamb.
