The BTF have let us know about a new Cyclopark development near Gravesend just off the A2. The website is: http://www.cyclopark.com/
The BTF is interested to know if we would be interested in joint training sessions there with other clubs, looking maybe at weekday nights starting from 7.30.
I know that a lot of people struggle to get back just to South London for our weekday evening sessions but I know there are a few people who have joined up who live a little further away so wanted to put this out there.
For qualified coaches there are also opportunities to coach sessions.
There is also a possibility of hosting duathlons and maybe even triathlons too as there is a pool nearby so it could become a race venue.
If any of this is something that would interest you please post below, I need to go back to the BTF early next week with our feedback.
I have more than enough trouble getting sessions in South London - and I live in South London! So Gravesend is a non starter for me.
It would be good for chain gangs in a safe environment - so every once in a while I guess. There is also a track at Hillingdon which might be closer for some people too.
I know the Herne Hill velodrome do road bike sessions which are very close to us! I think the Cyclopark would be good for occasional weekend training to make things a bit different, but there is no way I could make it on a weekday.
