SPECIAL SESSION: Saturday 28th June‏ @ Knockburn

June 20, 2014 Comments off

There is another Aberdeen District Cycling Association cluster session at Knockburn Sporting Loch, Strachan, where all the local kids clubs get together for some coaching sessions and fun races. This session is mountain bike based and all our riders are invited along.

The last road session at Alford was a great success and the feedback from Tigers that made it along was fantastic. We’d like to encourage as many of you along as possible and as most of the coaches will also be there then the Stonehaven session will not be running on that day

The timing is now confirmed as 9.30 arrival for a 10.00 start and 12.30 finish. More information is included on the attached flyer. ADCA Youth Development – Session 2, Knockburn Loch . There is no charge for these sessions.

For GPS folk, the address is Knockburn Sports Loch, near Strachan, Banchory, Aberdeenshire, AB31 6LL. This is a fantastic facility and there is a café there for all or feel free to bring a picnic for after the session.

Meet 11.15am for 11.30am start and 12.30 finish.

UPDATE: Monday Evening Sessions

June 3, 2014 Comments off

We had a great first session out at Countesswells on Monday.  However some of us found it a bit tight for time with the Aberdeen rush-hour traffic to cope with.

From this coming week (9th June) we will be a little later

Meet 18-15 for sign-in with aim of completing bike & equipment check in time for 18-30 pedal-off into the forest

Finish ~19-30

INFO: Aberdeen Monday Sessions now at Countesswells‏: June 2014

Starting this coming Monday (2nd June) we will be meeting at Countesswells Forest Car Park. This will be the start of our MTB block so no skinny tyres! A separate note will come out for Stonehaven; for the next few sessions we will still be meeting at Mackie.

Countesswells Forest is on the road from Cults to Kingswells, just to the north of Countesswells Road.  Entrance to car park is opposite the stables.

Start time as usual: meet at 6-00 for 6-15 start.

The children should really be wearing Gloves for protection in case of minor spills. Long sleeves and longs legs are recommended, it could be a bit cool.  Also Glasses are recommended for protection from dust or vegetation.

Note: car park charges apply: link to FC site: http://www.forestry.gov.uk/website/recreation.nsf/LUWebDocsByKey/ScotlandMorayandAberdeenshireNoForestForestsofMorayandAberdeenshireCountesswellsandFoggieton

Summer Crit 16 June 2012- RESULTS

June 19, 2012 Comments off

And they’re off!

Despite the less than flaming June weather we had a good turn out for the Summer Crit on Saturday.  The changing effects of the weather led to several changes in course design but we ended up with two: “Short” and “Long”.

The two junior classes had separate races.  The U8s did two laps and the U10s four laps of the short course.

The U12, U14 & U16 classes raced together around the long course but with different race lengths (3 laps/ 4 laps/ 5 laps).

Many thanks to the volunteer helpers who set up the courses (several times!), counted the laps, took the times, marshalled in the far-flung corners, ran the BBQ and all the other tasks to make it all happen.

Also many thanks to mums, dads etc who brought the kids out and cheered enthusiastically as the children cycled around.

Results can be viewed by clicking here: http://grampiantigers.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/tigers-dirt-crit-2012.pdf

We hope to do another event of some type this year so keep an eye on the Tigers web-site for further info, including news of any other local events we know of.

Results from CycleFest 27 May 2012

Adam on the Podium

Yesterday was the CycleFest event at Alford and a few Tiger Jerseys were on show.

Taking part were Daniel and Adam, Harry, Patrick & Joseph. There was some pretty hot talent (and hot bikes) on show from near and far across all the age categories.

Only one Tiger made it to the podium, congratulations to Adam on finishing 3rd in the U8 event.  He had the added thrill of being presented with his medal by that Scottish cycling legend that is Graeme Obree.
