Here is the latest news from CRR.
We had a very successful Emergency first aid course for Mountain runners, delivered by Conwy Training, on 20th March 2016.
This was a bespoke course aimed at mountain runners / cyclists and was provided for all members and for those who have helped marshal at our races over the last few months.
Hopefully the skills learned will never have to be used, but it will perhaps come in useful if caught out on a mountain or in a race marshaling situation.
The course was paid for by the Clwydian Range Runners club. Thanks to all who attended and to Pilar for the fantastic training. Thank you also to Denbighshire Countryside Services for the use of the Loggerheads conference room.
Thanks to Jenny for the Autum 2015 edition.
Manchester Velodrome – 15th April 2015.
Two CRR members had the chance to ‘ride the boards’ in the Manchester Velodrome on Wed 15th April. Following a nervous few laps the confidence grew and the laps were getting faster and faster with the riders getting up to the top of the circuit. After a couple of hours of fantastic tuition from British Cycling coaches it was time to race…… against the clock. Neil Coppack almost beat the 20 second lap time that seemed to be set as the benchmark on the night.
Paris – Roubaix Sportive 11 April 2015.
Jim and Trevor made the trip over to Paris for the Pasix-roubaix sportive. “The ride was fine on the legs (100 miles of mostly flat), but brutal on the arms. I had pins and needles in my hands for the best part of a week afterwards, despite 28mm tyres and double bar tape. Great experience though and you really get a feel for the history of the race. Only fell off once, although unfortunately it was 100m into the Arenberg in front of a small crowd. Have attached photos of Trev and I in the Arenberg (after the fall thankfully)”
