Easy Wheelers: Can you Help

Wanted: Easy Wheelers Leaders and assists

When: Saturdays (for the next few weeks)


Due to personal and professional engagements we’re short on Easy Wheelers leaders and assists, can you help and give something back to your club?

For around the next 6 weeks we’re going to struggle to operate these popular rides, so we’re looking for you, our members to step in.

Easy Wheelers are our introductory ride, where people start off, perhaps they’re returning to cycling, or maybe they’ve just got themselves a bike. It’s a easy paced, no drop introduction to cycling, they run on the quieter roads and are a lower mileage loop usually with a break in the middle, they’re to gain confidence, learn group riding skills as well as to make new friends and really get into cycling.

All we need is a few hours on a Saturday around lunchtime where you help out in the operation of these rides. please comment on this post if you can help, and when, or if you have any questions at all.

Date Change: M107 Time Trial – May 2016

Information regarding: Blaydon CC 10 mile open CTT Time Trial (Regional 10 mile Champs) M107

To give everyone the opportunity to race the Regional 10 mile Championship, we have moved the date to Saturday 21st May. This means it no longer clashes with Imann Round 2 Road Race.

If you have entered and can not race on the Saturday, the CTT will be in touch to offer refunds. The date on CTT website will be updated shortly and we’ve had approval to move dates. I hope this helps those that were having to choose between race events that weekend.

Website – Club Events

** EDIT: Please note this does not affect facebook just the website displaying information **

Unfortunately the software that we use to publish events is broken, what this used to do is extract the information from facebook onto here, please bear with us if you rely on the website to get club event information.


for now they can be seen at you do not have to be a facebook member to view our pages.

Hopefully soon we can have something up and running!

Members Chat: Search Functionality

First of all just a little reminder that any paid up member has access to the members chat area. This is using facebook as it’s free, easy and most of all visible.

You can request to jouin via clicking here but please bear in mind you must be a member of the club, for all other enquiries please see our website or main facebook profile.


When you are in ‘the group’ it’s your place to organise mid-week rides, share special offers and deals, sell and swap bikes and bike parts as well as generally interact with other club members, we often see repeat questions such as ‘what light should I get?’ – for that we’re reminding everyone there’s a search button, your question may already have been asked and even answered. Search on group

The members chat page is a great resource with a lot of information on, due to the nature of the page, after a few days information and posts sink towards the bottom of the pile and off the screen, the search functionality allows for you to recall previous posts that may be of use to you.
