Poole Wheelers/Palmer Park Track Day

Graham Hurst of Poole Wheelers write……..On Saturday Poole Wheelers ran a joint track session with the Palmer Park
Club from Reading here on the track at Bournemouth. As well as approx. 20
riders coming down from Reading we had riders from Portsmouth, Southampton,
Fareham Surrey and as far north as Luton - so with the local riders we had
46 riders all under 16.

We had 6 Qualified coaches and a few trainee coaches on hand so the riders
were split into 5 groups and a great time was had by all. I think it's fair
to say all the riders leant something so were able take something away from
the day and well as many new friendships being formed.
We also had Ric Jamieson British Cycling's talent coach with us for the
whole day so his input was of great benefit to many riders.

It is hoped this is just the first of many just days and the Reading club
have already invited us up to ride there track sometime in the future - date
has yet to be agreed.
