We currently have 3 sessions per week, on Wednesday and Friday evenings and Sunday mornings.

The Wednesday evening session is at the Brownlee Brothers track at Leeds University.

the Friday evening and Sunday morning sessions are at the York Sports Village.

Please see the Roller Ski page for more information and contact details. As each session is subject to change, it is essential that you let us know in advance if coming for the first time.

We are now on Twitter!

The more we can tell the world about our fantastic club, the more we can attract lots of new members which can only bring great things.

Gearstones 2018

Its been a wet and windy weekend up in the Ribble Valley but we remained in high spirits as we battled the gales and bog hopped our way across Plover Hill towards the  summit of Pen-y-gent. We took the decision to descend before the final push as visibility was poor and winds were getting stronger and stronger.  Others took themselves off to explore Hawes, Sedbergh and Dent. Dave and Glenda’s excellent catering revived us all back at the lodge. Another great weekend – the 25th visit to Gearstones Lodge by the YDCCSC.

Sundays at the track at York Sports Village

Despite  cold and grey weather, we have seen good numbers of roller skiers on the track since Christmas. All have benefitted from the expert tuition of Martin, Martin and Richard and progress has been made in both classic and skate technique. Frosty conditions on a couple of sessions have meant that those who normally skate have tried classic roller skis. Practising both styles does improve overall technique, so every drill counts.
