THE riders, coaches and volunteers of Orange Army of Riders have been not put off by the stormy weather in their ambitions to go all the way.

Rhyl Cycling Club cyclists defiantly took to Marsh Tracks for one of their first Sunday Sessions – despite an approaching Storm Brendan - to build on a bumper 2019 which saw club coach Jon Harland awarded the runner up prize for Welsh Cycling’s Coach of the Year 2019.

Mr Harland and the fellow coaches have been putting in place a programme of activities to ensure members maintain their fitness levels. From strength and conditioning sessions through to weekly workouts, alternating between roller sessions and circuit training sessions.

The club's discipline - and encouragement for risers to take on events from the local Go Ride Racing Series up to National Event - has seen riders reaching top ten finishes in multiple competitions and previously one rider winning Welsh Circuit Champion, two years on the trot.

Rhyl mayor cllr Ellie Chard said: “I fully support Rhyl Cycle Club’s aim of providing cycling training for the youngsters in our town which is a great life skill for them. We are proud to have the Marsh Tracks in Rhyl.

“We are fortunate to have such great facilities, and I’d also like to offer my congratulations to the club on their successes and achievements during the last 12 months, very well done.”

The club meets at 9.30am every Sunday at Marsh Tracks Rhyl for open coaching sessions for youngsters of all ages and new riders wanting to have a go are encouraged to come along.
