That’s the spirit Rob, i am sure we can add to that tally for next season.

There is already a dedicated group preparing well for the coming season. I shall keep you posted on our development and together we can put PNECC on the map.

Keep it up buddy, you are an inspiration to us all.

Mate you'll go far giving the club skipper a few chuck ups!

You are right though, there were many club members racing last season and considering it was our first season racing together we didn’t do too bad. We had several firsts and i don’t think that there was any race we entered where we didn’t get at least one PNE rider in the top ten.

The secret was the chain gang and the group riding. It gave us the strength to break away if we needed to and also the experience to ride in the bunch without the usual intimidation the newbie might come across.

This success has given rise to the winter training program and why we are slowly but surely putting together a formidable group.
There are no two ways about it, if you want to race and be a contender (after all that’s why we do it)then you have to ride your bike. At this time of the year it is crucial that you ride your bike at least 3 time a week. One of the times needs to be a long ride as well. Ideally people will need to get out 2 - 3 times during the week for a pair of hours each and then 3 - 4 hours on the weekend. The pace of the ride should not exceed level two (which will differ from age group to age group and between the sexes) this will equate to a heart rate of around 150 bpm.

I am putting together a full training diary pretty soon and will be calling for another meeting to explain the plan. All comers are welcome and the program is going to depend very much on the dates for the races we are targeting. The meeting will probably take the form of a quick hook up and exchange of ideas followed by a curry! Nice and simple.

I would welcome your input for the meeting if you would like to attend rob? I shall keep you posted.
What are your plans for next season? I think it would be great to be able to support each other’s races next year. I will be setting up tom with a profile soon so don’t be surprised if he drops you a message or two.
Who are the guys racing next year from the youth squad. (we may as well call it that because that’s what we could have very easily) N.B i will need a youth captain as well if you fancy the post? Let me know what you think and i shall put it through the committee.
The Riders (as i see it) are:
Yourself (Rob)
Callum Butterworth
Aaron Thompson
Thomas Walker

If there are any riders i have missed can you let me know?

I hope you are well and please say hello to your mum and dad for me.

What size bike are you looking for Rob? How long before you get it? Do you need a winter bike or just a frame?

I'd like to be able to get Sam Fitzgibons on to a bike but life is a bit complicated for me just now. If only I could get him off of his scooter - and now he's getting pro Jumps for Christmas!

Your bike is almost ready Si. However your lefthand gear lever is u/s so I'm looking for another one. After that I've just got to tape the bars and it's done. Indexed gears work a treat!

Thank you Paul, shame about the left lever, must be something with the Gazelle frame as worked on the Peugot, never mind perhaps it was being held together by the fixing & undoing it it came to its end Sad
Cheers anyway Paul...

Perhaps the whole lever was rotating on the Peugeot's boss? I can't see anthing odd about the Gazelle's one. I'll try and dismantle the lever friction mechanism (as it's no good otherwise). Apart from the bar tape the bike is rideable, just that you'll be restricted to the 40 ring. It looks a bit bare without mudguards - anyone out there got a secondhand pair of traditional 'guards they don't want?
