And so we go again! I’m very pleased to announce the return & 2nd year of our Spring / Summer TT Series. With a mix of both Individual and Team events whilst each month will mark a different course.

This to maximise the numbers of participants. whilst allowing members to continue riding club Wednesday night rides and the possible introduction of a YOGi Chain gang on Wednesdays also. We had a excellent turn out last year and i’m hoping we can … Read more…

Official Club (Road) rides CANCELLED – 3rd March

Official Club road rides will be cancelled this weekend, as we cannot guarantee the absolute safety of our Members. Although thawed in areas, we cannot guarantee that all roads surfaces are safe to ride. As an example Ivybridge is still snowed under and only stopped a hour or so ago after starting again. We welcome any unofficial rides to be organised through the YOGi Fb page and encourage you to ride safely if you do venture out. I hope you can understand and look forward yo seeing you next week

***Time Trial Series 2018***

Hi all Following a successful Time Trial series (YOGi Members only) last year, I am planning to organise and run these again for 2018. I’m keen to determine the best day (evenings) of the week for everyone. Last year we completed these on a Wednesday and some of the feedback was that it co-incided with many wanting to ride traditional Wednesday club rides. So my thoughts were perhaps a Tuesday evening and which would create less competition for dates with Plymouth Tri Club and Alltrax. Please let me know your thoughts, i need to submit date requests by Monday latest.

Newport have the following dates available.   12pm- 4pm 7th October   12pm-4pm 14th October   11am-9pm 28th October   Preferably i’d like to book this in for the 7th, as I believe it doesn’t co-incide with any other event.   If we do so, can you confirm please if you would be interested in taking part. #Nocrashingthistimeplease!!
