Preston CC will be holding it's club championships on the weekend of the 9/10th September. To assist our junior riders, some of whom have never undertaken a time-trial, we will be holding a training session for juniors at Humevale on Sunday, 27th August (the day after the Alf Kimpton). Juniors are invited to join us at Humevale at 10.00 a.m. for a training session. The session will focus on safe road riding, covering topics such as selecting the right gear, braking, safe cornering, etc.
It will also be an opportunity for junior riders to ride part of Humevale, to get a bit of an idea of the course, where the finish point is, etc.
The regular Sunday club ride will depart from South Morang Bicycle Centre at 9.00 a.m. and head to Whittlesea, before rolling on to Humevale where we will meet up with the juniors at 10.00.

PCC training at DISC commences this Sunday, May 7th, from 11am to 1pm. Training is run by Pete, cost is $10 per rider and open to Juniors and Seniors.
DISC Sessions will occur every 2nd Sunday. The Saturday trainining session for Juniors and Seniors at Preston Velodrome, would alternate, with one week at DISC and the following week at Preston. This would continue until around the time that daylight savings commences (end of October).
Pete has organised another Come & Try session over the school holidays for Preston Juniors this Tuesday, 4th April, between 12pm and 2pm.
This is a great opportunity for our younger members to experience riding in an indoor velodrome under the watchful guidance of our coach Peter Wykes.
Great news for the kids, the Preston CC Kids Clinic will continue as normal over the School Holiday period. Pete will be on deck to coach the beginners at 10am Saturday and intermediates at 11am.
Junior and Senior Training (from 12 onwards) will not be held over the school holidays (April 8 and 15). Juniors and Seniors are still welcome to use the track at this time, however no formal coaching will be available for those two Saturdays.
Kids, Juniors or Seniors training this Saturday, our coaches and canteen crew are having a well deserved break over the long weekend
Congratulations to all the riders for representing the club so well; the kids certainly did the club proud in what, for many of them, was the first time they’d raced in team events against teams from other clubs.
All the junior teams rode well and while it’s certainly not all about podium finishes we even managed to get a few of those.
Thank you also to all the parents for supporting the junior athletes by bringing them to training before the event and ‘managing’ them during the course of the event which turned out to be quite a long day at the track.
Finally a special thanks to club coach Peter Wykes for his tireless work preparing the juniors over the course of the last few weeks.
