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.

Marshal help required

Can I tempt you – with the promise of some delicious grub – to marshal for me on Sunday July 16th?  The 25 mile TT will now be taking place on our Calthwaite course (roadworks on the A66).  You would report for duty at Hutton End Village Hall at 8:30 – please try! Call 07976 266335 or email carol@pilates-cumbria.uk or in person at mid-week events if you can help. Thank you, Carol.

Kevin Crawley is also looking for help with his 10 mile event on Saturday 15 July, whilst he says he can’t promise high class cakes like Carol, there will be the chance to sample his daughter’s home made flapjack.  If you can help contact him on 686kev@gmail.com.

Upcoming Club Ride

The next club ride is to the seaside with a café stop at Mawbray which is taking place on Sunday 02 July from the Car park opposite Dalston Co-op at 9.30am.  Further event details here.
