Thank you to all the Coaches, Volunteers and Commissaires who attended the North East Sport Conference yesterday, what a great day it was hearing so many positive discussions and ideas.

A further congratulations to the Go-Ride Award Winners;

- North East Volunteer of the year: Rachael Rose of Stockton Wheelers CC

- North East Coach of the year: Mark Severs of South Shields Velo CC

- Special Recognition: Mike Monaghan of Hamsterley Trailblazers & Ingleby Cycle Coaching

As described yesterday, the Go-Ride team's work programmes are really varied and delivery is planned a quarter in advance, and schools are always a term in advance. We can manage requests most effectively, with as much notice as possible so please dont forget to follow up any conversations with us.

In order to further keep clubs and coaches in the region informed of what our Go-Ride coaches are up to, copies of their monthly coaching blogs are provided at every board meeting, so any clubs attending can find out more at those.

We are looking into a way for the blogs to go out as a newsletter as the documents are deemed too large to attach online.

In the meantime, if you require any further information or want to arrange some support, please dont hesitate to contact us;
