We have four confirmed dates at Herne Hill Velodrome for Saturday road bike sessions:
These will be public sessions but will be coached for CPT members. The sessions will be held at 13:30-15:00.
There is a covered area in the event that rain means we cannot use the track, so we can either do circuits or a turbo session. Session fees will be £5 for adults and £3 for juniors or inclusive for those who have annual training membership.
On 5 November the Veldrome are running a working party and it would be very much appreciated if members could pitch in, after our training session, with some of the work that needs to be done. Work will continue until it gets dark, followed by fireworks and food and a chance to get to know everyone. More details to follow.
We also have confirmed dates for Hillingdon in 2012, so make sure you keep the dates free:

Crystal Palace Junior Triathletes take Dulwich Park by storm!
Last Sunday was the final CPT junior club championship event, a run race in Dulwich Park. Well done to everyone who competed and earned points for their team. 16 of you were there and your CPT kit looked striking on the start line.
But did the Wiggos close the points gap? No, unfortunately not for them, this year the Cavs came out in force, scores on Sunday were...
Cavs 109 with 10 team members and bonus points awarded to Harry, Matthew, Mali and Ben A
Wiggos 66 with 6 team members and bonus points awarded to Alex and Elle
Many congratulations to the Cavs who have taken the Club Championship title this year by 129 points and will be awarded the trophy with a mini Mars of course for EVERYONE who took part in the Club Champs series.
Jon says "Chapeau" to all who took part and thank you to the parents and supporters.
If anyone has any ideas to evolve the club champs for 2012 please let Sheila know.
Links to more photos of CPT in action at Dulwich Park can be found below.
Congratulations to Archie and Ben who were awarded Athlete of the Month for September.
Jon announced the awards in Dulwich Park following the Club Champs run, saying Archie was awarded "for his regular attendance and enthusiasm since recently joining the Club and Ben for his new found desire in his run, bike and now swimming, after having a lean few months".
Welcome to new member Wim Geberbauer (in the black trisuit in the photo). Wim's dad, Hans, has been a member of CPT for a couple of years. They both completed the 100k Ride of the Falling Leaves sportive yesterday. He finished in 4:49:32.
Isaac also completed the 80k Ride with his dad, Mark in 2:51:34. Hopefully there will be a report from Isaac to follow.
