NFCC Cyclo-cross training session

Now that the cx calendar is out and we can start to prepare for the season, I am organising a cyclocross skills session for club members.  I have enlisted the coaching skills of Malcolm Cross, from VC Venta, and I have a friend willing to lend us a field!  The session will be for a couple of hours and be an opportunity for new riders to learn basic cx skills such as starts, dismounting and remounting, cornering, carrying the bike, and jumping the planks (not bunny hopping at this stage!).  It will also enable more experienced riders to practise after our long lay-off.  

Please can I have comments below on whether you’d prefer a Saturday or Sunday morning, or a week day evening.  Also please let me know if you are interested in coming along.  It will cost a small amount to cover Malcolm’s expenses.  I haven’t planned a date yet but will be hoping that this can take place between mid August and up to the first weekend of September.  

Malcolm will accept up to 30 riders so don’t hold back!  It’s fine to bring your mtb or gravel bike if you don’t have a cx bike but want to give the sport a go.
