Velodrome Cluster Session

The next Lancs/Cumbria track session is now live online. See below.,-Lancs-&-Cumbria

Please forward to your club members. Riders must be Club members and BC members for all groups. Non BC members will get an email asking to renew membership before being accepted. Don’t forget new members get FREE membership for the first year.

Please note due to NCC price increases the cost is now £15/rider. This is still excellent value and includes bike hire if needed. Bikes must be booked with Robbie George in the office before 12.00 Friday 8/8/13.

Any questions please ring/email Tom Leivers.

Club Kit

For those that ordered new club riding kit, we expect delivery to be in the first week of August.

We are also collecting orders for club hoodies, we need 10 of either child or adult to be able to place an order and currently have about 5 of each. If you would like to order then please email


There are still two more Saturday CDNW Youth League races left to go.

In addition there are still a number of the Thursday evening races at Preston UCLAN arena.


2013-10-13 12.11.20The first round of this year’s NWCCA ‘cross series is local at Hoghton Tower and is scheduled for 6th September. It would be great to see a good turnout of riders from the club. Both young and older.

There are also rounds later in the series at Astley park and Bolton. You don’t need a cyclocross bike to just have a go, a MTB will do just fine.

With this in mind we will hopefully be running a cyclocross introduction session on a Saturday morning during August, if there is enough interest then we will hopefully also run some practise sessions on Tuesday evenings after the arena sessions finish. Watch the website for details.

 Club Meeting

The club meeting at Bamber Bridge Catholic club originally scheduled for 28th July has had to be postponed, provisionally by a week to the 4th August. We will confirm this a bit closer to the time.

 Lewis Balyckyi Ride

Witton Park Ride
