Cycle Surgery winter series round 2
This was held on Sunday and went really well, as promised the weather was good and thanks to a quick clean up after the previous weekend weather (thanks to all who assisted at short notice) the tracks were in great shape. We had 179 attended and was really pleasing to see the number of riders who took part in the recreational/Children's loop. This seemed well received and we will endeavour to have this separate loop available next month also. Thanks to the sponsors Cycle Surgery for the spot prizes and on going support for the event, please remember to take them up on the generous offer to check out the children's bike for safety. Thanks to all who assisted in running the race, the next round of the winter series will be on July 6th same time same place hope to see you all there.  NOTE we picked up after Sundays round a Blue Fila child's hoody if this belongs to you please be in touch, otherwise it may end up in next months spot prizes.
