On Sunday 20th January (9-11am, York Sports Village cycle track) and Wednesday 23rd January (7-9pm, Brownlee Centre cycle track) the club are offering free and fun taster sessions. Please contact info@ ydccsc.org.uk for further information or to request a place.
A few members have just returned from their on-snow ski trips, a few more are enjoying somewhere cold and snowy right now. So although it was a quiet morning on the track, the roller skiers who did attend were very busy indeed. One coach led a lesson in skate-2 timing whilst another ran a beginner classic lesson.
It was a quiet but profitable morning at the York Sports Village track today with drills being practised in both classic and skate style. And the sun came out for us yet again!
Today 3 of us got together over lunch to work on a new glossy leaflet to promote the club. We aim to have it in print by the end of July so that we can hand it out at events and email copies to sports clubs. We would love to attract new members and hopefully this will fit the bill!
Some of us had a super Saturday last week when we joined the Manchester Club for their annual Lancaster to Heysham Roller Ski Tour. We followed the Lune Valley Cycle path to Morcecambe and then followed the prom to Heysham where we had a lovely pub lunch in the sunshine before the return journey. A round trip of about 11 miles.

Enough snow fell last week to enable club members to get out and about on skis. Trips were made to Dalby Forest and some members even skied around their own neighbourhoods. As the usual roller ski lessons were cancelled, we took the opportunity to practise some drills at Temple Newsam in Leeds using club skis.
