This time of the year BBC hosts the “Children in Need” charity event.
We as Newark Castle Cycling Club are going do our bit and help raise money for this deserving charity.
We with the help of Waitrose Supermarket will be taking our Turbo Trainers to Waitrose supermarket on Saturday Nov 15th for a marathon training session
The Training session will begin at 09;00 and finish about 15;00. Eight turbo will be set up for riders.
Sorry it is short notice but we have decided due to the high windy conditions it is not considered safe for riders who are out on the school field.
So club will be cancelled for those of you out on the field.
Club night will be as normal for those of you who are on the turbo trainers in the hall.
After a season long competition of 19 events only points separated the top 4 riders.
With Alan Fletcher confirming his position at the top of the leader board on the last event and Matt Pearce missing out on a possible title with a catastrophic mechanical breakdown and Sarah Burke with a dramatic chase of the leaders in the last 5 events made for a compelling last 2 events for this year.

What a night we had.
Thursday 4th Sept was the last club “10” of the year and last counting event for the league title.
With 4 riders on the edge of winning the title it was to be an interesting and tense affair.
The night had it’s moments from the ridiculous to the sublime to the catastrophic and two course records.
A new course record for the tandem was established by team Sawula, with Mark steering and Zoe as stoker(rather reluctantly) a ridiculous time of 35;08 was recorded, not the fastest time but a record all the same!!!.
The second course record was by Adam Gascoine taking Ian Russell’s record down to 21;19 a sublime ride in not perfect conditions.
The 2 of the 4 leading league title contenders accepted the challenge for the last points of the season to give them the title Alan Archer was in the lead and had to be dislodged for any of the four to win. Matt Pearce was on a mission to claw back the deficit ready and biting on the handlebars. Matt had a catastrophic mechanical breakdown on his ride which put him out of the running half way through the event and had to coast to the finish, hoping against all hope to salvage some points.
It was not to be
Alan not knowing was happening to the rival waited and waited and then started to think the title would be his.
It was, and gaining 2 points in the quest
League champion for 2014 Alan Fletcher
