16 April 2021Time Trial - The Race of Truth
Know and the Race of Truth because drafting isn't allowed, it's just you against the clock.
This is an ideal event as an introduction to cycle racing, because you don't have to be intimidated by more experienced riders. You chieve a time which becomes your personal best, with coaching you can improve this time and get a judgement of your fitness, which you can then compare with other riders and see if you are ready to compete head to head in a closed circuit event.
The image is of our friends Sullis Scorpions at Odd Down nr Bath, particitpating in an assisted time trial start. Sullis Scorpions have invited Cycle Stars to compete on the 8th May.
There are three distances:
* 3 laps - 4.5 km 9.00 hrs
* 5 laps - 7.5 km 10.00 hrs
* 10 laps - 15km 11.00 hrs

01 April 2021Easter Special at Odd Down
After 12 months with no racing due to Coronavirus riders were keen to get racing again.
Cycle Stars had riders competing in the U8s, U12, U14 and we also had Coach Jim and Dad Ben in the cat 4 race with Ben finishing second and Jim finishing 8.
Many of our riders were racing for the first time with the exception of young Ted, who won the U8s
Everyone rode strongly and remembered their coaching lessons by drafting in the windy conditions. Everyone finished with enthusiasm and sprinted to the line. They now can build on their experience and all look forward to racing again soon.
30 March 2021SUCCESSFUL TASTER SESSION AT TESCOS
Over 40 riders turned up to our first tater session at Tesco's Gloucester
We had expected a good turnout for our firts taster session at our new location, but it took us by surprize to see so many keen riders. Lucky we had 5 coaches on hand and was able to split them into safe coaching numbers. On offer was a skills session for the younger riders, Rookie Racers for those riders aspiring to race and our normal Race Club which were having a pre race special in readiness for competing in the Easter Special at Odd Down.
Since the event we've had some great feedback and many of the riders are booking to join us again.
