A few good runs

A nice video compilation of some of the best club rides..

Daisybank dig weekender 2012

Big thanks to all who turned up to repair Daisybank dirt jumps this weekend. It was an epic couple of days of dirt moving and packing in. I still cannot quite believe how much we achieved and how good the summer is going to be riding up there.

Buckholt Wood riding agreement

Last Friday (March 23rd) representatives from Cheltenham & County CC and Bigfoot MBC reached what we considered as a workable riding agreement with Natural England and the forestry manager

Cheltenham & County and Bigfoot MBC hit Ribbesford

With our two clubs having recently collaborated in trying to negotiate the return of mountain biking to Buckholt Woods we furthered this partnership with a superb gravity riding day at the downhill trails near to Ribbesford

New MTB Race Captain

We welcome Rachel Vicary as our new mountain bike race captain. This is a new role to support the development of racing at all levels, off road. As a keen racer herself she aims to promote the following:

1) To dissmeniate information about MTB racing events to you all -including XC, 4X, Downhill, Enduro etc
2) To promote racing. While not distracting from leisure riding, ensuring that those wishing to push themselves a little further have something to aspire to and have support/encouragement from the club to do so.
3) To facilitate racing - hopefully by co-ordinating events we can make it easier and cheaper to organise transport, accommodation etc
4) To promote our members' racing achievements - not only within the club but externally too.
5) To build up racing expertise - making the most of local tracks for our own mini practise events and ultimately getting experts into the club for training sessions etc

There are many local Cheltenham riders, young and old, that race but who are not part of the club. Hopefully we can also use this role to reach out to them and bring them into the club. As this is a new role, I am of course, still scoping out what needs to be done.

If you race or have an interest in doing so please email Rachel, or just contact TheCorrective
