MERSEYSIDE CYCLING DEVELOPMENT GROUP
SUPPORTED BY LITHERLAND
Hope you are all well, I have a couple issues to bring
to your notice, the first, as usual, is the next session of the
winter training at Litherland Sports Park a week tomorrow 13th
February 2011 at 9am. The format will be almost the same as previous
sessions, but I will, if possible, fit in a Turbo session, we have 10
or more Turbo's available, but it would help if you have your own
turbo to bring it along in case we have a uptake in numbers and
find we haven't enough to go around. Also, we will be a couple of our
normal coaches short at this session, but I'm hoping to enlist two
replacements so to speak, who I will introduce on the day. As the
adults will realize it will be a bit busy, so any help you can give on
the day will be appreciated.
Secondly, the date for the rearranged session on 6th
March has had to be changed because of a clash of dates. There are no
other available dates in March and as the youth racing
season starts thereabouts it will have to be on the Sunday
following our next session which makes it the 20th February
2011 that gives us two sessions a week apart of which
(hopefully) the second will be a form of Go- Ride racing on
Hope to see you all there, if you have any
problems please get back to me.
The sessions are designed to attract
younger riders aged between 10 and 16yrs to an initiative a little different
and more involved in other activities than we have tried in the past.
The base will be Litherland Sports Park,
with the primary activity taking place in the ‘Activity Suite’ and will
figure a keep-fit exercise session that will include floor games, circuit
training and turbo/ spinning bike coaching sessions, (Turbo’s/spinning bikes
The secondary activity will be a road ride
accompanied by qualified British Cycling coaches for those riders experienced
to do so, or, the use of the running track for safe ‘on the bike’ coaching
for the lesser experience rider.
Refreshments will be provided, but riders
should supply their own packed lunch and energy drinks if required. There is
changing room and shower facilities, both male and female, with lockers and
full bike security also, if required.
The number of spaces is restricted and is
on a ‘first come first served’ basis, and I would hope that the same
riders would continue through all 5 sessions so their progress could be
monitored and assessed.
There will be informal coaching talk time
for anything bike. (In the event of poor riding weather, the coaching talks
would be more specific).
The plan is to hold 5 sessions from October 2010 through to February 2011
Arrival time at Litherland Sports Park will be 9am for registration, and
9.30am for a prompt start to the activities. There will be a ‘one off
payment of £5 at session one. (£1.00 per session)
All riders will need a completed parental consent form to take part (I
will supply a blank if you required one). I would like you to book a place
through me by email or phone email@example.com
0151 428 6455. Please contact me if you have a question on any of the above,
all in the age range that can ride a bike can apply.
