    Retro Team Jersey

    From the album: 2015-Team-Clothing

    What is our club had been founded in 1963, instead of 2003? This is our take on what how our jersey would have looked back then! The 'Retro Team' team strip is a version of our club kit that was designed as a nod of respect to those who've blazed a trail before. N.B. This is not our offical team clothing as registered with British Cycling for racing and so can't be used for racing - more info Only be worn with all black shorts or bottoms!

    Chris Boardman Team MTB

    Last time I had an MTB was before front supension and disc brakes were standard, bars were narrow and stems were long - so I'd been meaning to treat myself to a new MTB for ages. It took me a few months to get my head around the new MTB specs - what wheel size to go for took a good while to ponder over. I wasn't fussy on the brand as long as it didn't have any Shimano on it ( ) - so in the end I went for a Boardman Team 27.5" = with 15% off in a sale + 10% BC discount I don't think I could have got a better bike for the money - the frame is brilliant quality for the money. After a few initial rides I made the following tweaks: I wasn't impressed with the tyres so converted to tubeless Michelin WildgripperThought the white grips, saddle and seatpin pin looked really naff and so swapped over for some spares I had already - gives the bike a much better overall look I think1cm longer stem - slammed down (still higher than a pure cross country position, so I can still play - it's just with my long back I needed itA longer stem slows steering, so I cut 1cm off each end of the bars to compensateBefore my knee op I went and found some really steep rutted drop offs that I used to do 20 years ago and I can't beleive how capeable this bike is - looking forward to getting up to QE Park & the Kingley Vale regularly again

    2014 - A Year To Be Thankful

    A hell of a year and well written Andy
  21. P.S.o.C.R. Road Bike Coaching at Langstone Technology Park Until we regain use of the Mountbatten Centre Cycle Track, we will be using Langstone Technology Park for our Friday Night Go-Ride (Youth Coaching) sessions until further notice. WHAT: Road bike coaching for youths at a 200m - 300m closed road area. These sessions are primarily organised for i-Team.cc youth riders but youths from other clubs are always very welcome Newcommers aged between 8-16 years of age are always welcome to come along and watch or try a few sessions free of charge - they will be looked after and given instruction on the basics (just make sure you bring along a completed consent form please) Once novices have registered and can demonstrate that they have the required level of skills, they are introduced more and more into the main group. N.B. These are not 'Training Sessions' where the main focus is just to ride hard to develop fitness. Youths will be pushed physically (especially the 7-8pm group) but the main focus is on finding the limit of bike handling skills (i.e. very close group riding and cornering in a group,) under the watchfull eye of up to 4 British Cycling qualified level 1-3 coaches, in a professional but fun and friendly atmosphere. Our pre-registering / pre-paying system means that we can always ensure that there is the right balance between experienced and novice riders - this helps maintain steady but safe progression for all abilities. WHERE: North Car Park Area, Langstone Technology Park,PO9 1SA WHEN: Fridays, 6-7pm (under 12's) & 7-8pm (12-16's) WHO: Registered / Prepaid riders (i-Team.cc members & guests from other clubs very welcome) - email info @ i-team.cc to enquire about joining in Please ensure that you have completed and submitted a registration form for 2015, along with your payment See this article for more information
  22. Knee surgery has gone well - should be back on the bike next week - looks like I'll soon be out of excuses not to ride! :)
