MTB CCT session at Hamsterley 1st June 2016

The MTB CCT session this evening (Wednesday 1st June) will be skills based and all riders should aim to have flat pedals fitted to their bikes.
We will be riding from bottom end of Hamsterley Forest at Descend Bike Park (https://goo.gl/maps/FYPTettVfH72).   There is a car park here for Rider Drop Off.  We will finish in the usual car park at the visitors centre.
As it is the Holidays, Coaches will be at Descend Bike Park from 17:45 and can start the session at 18:00 for those riders available to get there earlier.  Don't worry if you can't we'll regroup at the Descend Car Park for 18:45 to catch additional riders.

Message from Chair of BCNE re Youth & Junior Development Workgroup

The BCNE regional board is currently conducting a review of the Youth and Junior Development Workgroup.  We want to assess whether the group is meeting the needs of young riders and volunteers of all ages and at all stages of their development.  The workgroup is not currently meeting whilst the review takes place, but it will reconvene in due course.

A short survey is going to be issued to clubs and organisations with youth and junior sections very shortly, so we can capture information to assist with the review.  We want interested parties to have an input into the review and to take an active role in shaping the way the group operates in future.  If anyone has any comments or observations I would be very pleased to hear them – you can email me at chair@britishcyclingnortheast.org.uk.
