EXMOUTH based cycling club Cycle Sport Dynamo rounded off a successful 2010 with a four hour training session at the indoor Velodrome in Newport.

Twenty six riders from the East Devon area had the exclusive use of the track where they were coached by two of British Cycling’s professional coaches and were taught how to ride the steep wooden banking of the track on fixed wheel bikes.

Club Secretary Steve Medlock commented:” this is a great indoor facility for club members to use especially at this time of the year when we haven’t been able to ride due to the recent wintry conditions.”

The year of 2010 also saw an increase in membership, and also an increased participation in cycling events, including MTB, audax, sportive and cyclo cross, as well as successes in the more traditional road racing and time trial events.

The club were also delighted to be able to host a number of ‘Go – Ride’ youth events to help introduce school age riders to racing. This is set to increase throughout 2011.

The club is due to take delivery of exciting new racing kit this month, with ‘Cyclesport Dynamo – East Devon’ logos to reflect the increasing catchment area of the club.
