Just a quick reminder of http://www.youthcyclesport.co.uk/ which is aimed at young riders. It contains advice on training, skills, kit reviews (especially handy when buying bikes for young riders) and interviews with young stars. it also includes a lot of advice for parents, such as how to fit training and school homework into a typical week!
We are going to hold some youth roller racing sessions over the winter. The first dates are Friday 21st November and Friday 5th December. Sessions will start at 1930. Turn up at the clubrooms with your road bike (it must have 700 road wheels), and full instructions etc. will be given. The Club has four sets of rollers where one axle is clamped. It's a little like a cross between rollers and a turbo-trainer. The four sets are linked to a large clock face with four differently coloured arrows so that everyone can see who is winning. Races are quite short. contact Trevor Parrish more details on 01604 764182.
