Our First Youth Notes

Lakeside Wheelers youth Spins are continuing throughout the winter. Depending on the weather we do turbo sessions or go out on the road. Today we had our first turbo of the year with the help of Steve Franzoni and outdoor escape. Our coach Philip Wade put us through our paces for an hour and a half. We also did a tyre changing competition to test our practical skills. It was a successful morning with the good group of seven joining me.

After a very competitive tube changing “race” if became very clear that you would want Jason Reynolds out with you on a Saturday morning with it only taking him 1 minute 30 to get the wheel off and tube out and a mere 2 minutes to replace and have wheel back on the bike. With James Cribbins a very close second.
