Bournemouth Arrow/Hotel Collingwood Look to the Future

Press Release

At the recent AGM, the Club’s plans for this Olympic year were agreed. The Club now has 7 qualified coaches and one of our aims is to make the fullest use of that valuable resource for our members.
This year sees the Club make a dramatic step up in race and event organisation through the summer. Top of the “new promotions” list is the weekly Track Cycling League to run over 19 weeks every Tuesday from April at the Bournemouth Cycling Centre.
This will be complemented by Wednesday evening Intermediate Track Sessions at Bournemouth Cycling Centre open to all local accredited riders who are looking for a challenging track session. Each session will be pitched at a level just below full competition, and provide an opportunity for skills and fitness progressive development for all local riders who have already achieved basic track competence.
Thursdays will see the traditional Club 10 mile TTs at Ringwood which have proved so popular over the years.

Finally Friday sees the Club Track night, open to members only, where specific skills and fitness will be developed including Derny sessions for that vital top end work. In a development from its traditional Go Ride Cycling Skills sessions for kids, the first hour of the Club Track Night will be focussed on Junior Development for young riders over the age of 11.

The Arrow’s Club Development Officer Alan McRae says,”This Programme covering 4 activities every week in the summer, 3 of which are open to other cyclists, is a massive undertaking by the Club. We recognise that running the Track League will not be possible without practical assistance of members from other cycling clubs for which we are very grateful. For the rest, it is our own coaches and officials who will make this exciting Programme possible. If there has ever been a time to provide such a boost to our own members and the rest of the local cycling community, then 2012 is surely it.”
