Inaugural CTC Dalby event ‘The Housedale Hustle’ proves popular.

Having run a wealth of MTB related courses from the CTC Centre of Excellence, the Dalby Bike Barn team were pleased with the response to their first road event in the picturesque Yorkshire forest.

Over 40 riders aged from eight to 58 took part in the Housedale hill climb event last weekend 16 November 2013. On the day, the weather was clear and cool with thankfully no need for waterproofs or de-icer, so it helped things run really well. Riders were set off in two-minute intervals, which is a bit different to the usual 1 minute gap. The organisers  thought for the first timers, it would be nice not to get caught on the way up!

CTC is working with  'Welcome to Yorkshire' and York City Council on 'Cycle Yorkshire', an initiative to ensure that there is a 10-year legacy with a continued growth in cycling long after the banners have been taken down from the Tour de France route.

Great day for a pump track ride

On a sunny weekend at the end of September, the inaugural Yorkshire Bicycle Show was held in Leeds. CTC was one of the main sponsors and staff and volunteers from West Yorkshire and National Office turned out with the ever popular Shoretrax Pump track. See just how much fun was had by all!

Knowing the organisers first-hand from previous CTC Cycle Champs events was a real bonus. It meant that we had pride of place outside the Town Hall with our Shoretrax pump track and fleet of bikes on loan from Calderdale Council Cycling team. We also had plenty of stand space inside the extremely grand venue where we promoted our Road Justice Campaign and signed people up for CTC membership.

As the track took shape, excitement gathered and a busy day was enjoyed by young cyclists.

CTC Bike Parks are an exciting cluster of four sites set in glorious landscapes across South-East England. Managed by local volunteer clubs in partnership with CTC, the Bike Parks feature challenging downhill runs, dirt jumps, freeride trails and much more.

All of these sites rely on the enthusiasm, passion and hard work of the Club Committees and volunteers. Your day passes and/or annual membership fees cover the cost of managing and developing these sites, safeguarding the opportunities for mountain biking for now and into the future.

They are all keen to hear from anyone looking to get involved and support their local trails, so feel free to get in touch and keep an eye on the sites' websites, Facebook pages and Twitter accounts to find out how you can get involved.
