Re-branding, between now and the start of 2015 we will be starting to update the website, Facebook, banners, flags, printed stuff, etc to the new club colours of Lime and black. It will take time and may look a bit untidy for a bit, but should all come together for 2015.
"From Jan 1st 2015 the Lyme RC Club Kit will be Lime and Black, the orange and blue will not be a recognised club colours. For racing you will need to race in the Lime and Green kit or plain kit (no names or sponsors)."
The Lyme Racing Club is the largest cycle club in the Newcastle under Lyme, Stoke on Trent, North Staffordshire and South Cheshire area and as such we pride ourselves upon being a friendly and welcoming family orientated club. Time trials, track racing, road racing and mountain bike racing are just some of the competitive cycling activities that we regularly take part in and can offer to the new member.
Lyme Racing Club has coaching for all ages from very young to OAPs, with British Cycling Level 1 Coaches, Level 2 Coaches, also qualified Level 2 MTB, Level 2 Road/TT, Level 2 Track, we also have Level 3 Track and Level 3 Road/TT Coaches. Giving Lyme RC some of the best Coaches in the country. The coaching takes place both on Newcastle Velodrome and other places in the North Staffordshire Area.
However, don’t think that we only concentrate upon cycle racing. Membership of the Lyme Racing Club offers equally good value to both the serious rider and to the more recreational rider.
To facilitate this, we hold weekly club rides, usually on a Sunday morning, one for our road section and another for our mountain bike section. We have also some very popular mid week rides also beginner road rides on a Saturday and Thursday nights in Summer.
Our younger members are not forgotten either, with specially tailored rides designed especially for children, taking place at regular intervals.
These rides can either be road rides or mountain bike rides and are led by our members who hold a current CRB certificate in line with the British Cycling Go-Ride scheme.
In addition we also have a lively and active social side to the club.During the summer we are coaching down at Newcastle Velodrome on Friday night from 6.30pm if you want to come down for a chat.
Each winter Friday evening, Sept to May, between 8 o’clock and 10 o’clock we hold our weekly clubroom at Whitfield Community Centre, Whitfield Avenue, Newcastle under Lyme, ST5 2JQ, where members can meet to chat whilst enjoying a cuppa and a cake or two!
We, at the Lyme Racing Club, hope that you will soon be in touch and we look forward to seeing you in the near future.
