Whats going on?
So we have had such a massive push over winter and the club has moved from strength to strength. We are halfway to having 2 qualified British Cycling Level 2 Cycling coaches and in May Juan will be going to the UK to a BMX coaches forum for selected BMX coaches in the UK to bounce idea's off each other with British Cyclings top BMX coaching team. You may have already noticed Stu Brew from the mountainbike club also coming to coach, it is great that members of other clubs have identified our great structure and acknowledged our big push at a grass roots level.In the next month or so we will have a newly appointed Club welfare officer, to deal with any issues of good practice and child protection in all aspects of club activities. This will make us the first cycling club on the island to have this facility and we will be a picture of where all the other clubs should be aiming.The biggest change for most of you guys though are the track alterations. Hopefully this is just the continuation of a big re-design to continue bringing the club bang up to date with other UK tracks and even some Euro venues. Colas have been down there today with the roller and are working the track to get it riding sweet.Over the summer we have lots of other events planned, such as an open day on the 9th of June, aimed at presenting BMX to the masses, as the park should be filled for the Ramsey Sprint. A club trip away to Goldcoast BMX club in Lytham on Tynwald Day weekend, an evening of racing on the 7th of July as Ramsey Town Commissioners put on events all over the park as well as club riders attending all national events, possibly the European round and Cheddar and the British Championships.
