Sunday Steady 50 – 7th December

This Sunday is the first of 4 Steady Sunday rides. It’s a monthly 50-ish mile ride, run on a Sunday, meeting at 9am outside Dave Ferguson Cycles in Skipton.

Average speed is between the Saturday Social rides and the Sunday Sport rides, about 14-15mph. No-one will get dropped and we’ll regroup at the top of hills and major junctions.

This month’s route is Norwood Edge and back (45 miles). 1 major climb (Norwood Edge) and nice, quiet backroads the whole way. Café stop at Bean Loved in Skipton after the ride.

See you there!

Kit ready to order

Last order date is 31st October 2014 then order will be processed. There is a 6 week lead time and kit will be delivered to Fit for Purpose for collection.

Place your order and pay online through the Milltag SCC kit site.

There are a range of men and women jerseys for sizing at Fit for Purpose; sizing seems more realistic than Giordana (i.e. more generous) and there is a sizing chart.

Please see the brochure Milltag brochure for kit descriptions.

Calling all ladies!

Ladies only ride on Sunday 19th October 2014

Claire is running a ladies only ride on Sunday 19th October. This is a social ride with a distance of no more than 25 miles at a pace determined by the group. There will be a cafe stop and chattering none stop!

For anyone new to SCC or wishing to dip their toe in the water and take that first ride this is the ideal opportunity for you. There will be no rush, no pressure, just great cycling to be had. For the more experienced riders, why not just come out and enjoy the all important cafe and cake stop with the girls.

We’ve got new club kit! (almost)

We’ve tied up with Milltag to provide our new club kit. Giordana has been great, but the minimum order requirements and manual administration has led us to change. Milltag is setting us up a site to select and buy your kit (details coming soon). Kit will be stocked at Fit for purpose (thanks Christine) and pricing will be on a par with the old kit.

It’s got an updated design, including socks, cap, skinsuit, jacket and all the usuals. I hope you all like it.

SCC Steeplechase 2014

Hi all SCC members, GBITS, Social or otherwise inclined! There are prizes, there is food and quite possibly some pub stops!!

It is that time of year again, and to coincide with our summer ball, organised by the lovely Caran, the SCC annual Steeplechase will also take place during the day on the Saturday 12th July 2014.

Meeting place will be near the car park at Aireville Pool, under the SCC branded gazebo at 10am.

The point of the event is to mix all abilities together, all bike types and confidence, to work in teams to navigate around a course of approximately 30 miles, stopping at a number of checkpoints and taking team photos as proof.

Whats difficult about that? Well the checkpoints are in the form of clues, and you get these only on the day, the teams are selected out of the hat from all those that put their names in, each team will have GBIT/Social/B/A riders, so come on and put yourself up for it. The teams are of around 4 or 5 and will navigate together, they must all be at the check points together and finish together. So this is not about speed, but about team work, fun and working out which is the simplest route between points based on team ability as well as cunningly planning your routes.

As with last year, we ask for everyone to donate something to the lunch, fruit, sandwiches, pies, crisps, drinks, etc. etc. Last year we had everything including gluten free, if the weather is good we can even BBQ.
