Hello Dominic

Now most of us have sadly packed our skis away for the season, here's an update on the Club's upcoming events.


You'll find our latest calendar on our website so please use this for reference as the schedule in our last printed newsletter is out of date.

Sunday 8 May - 15km roller ski race

We're kicking off the British Rollerski Series of races with this 15km free technique & 7.5km junior/novice event. It's also the first of the 6 London Series races, all of which we organise.

Please note there will be no race entry on the day - please enter in advance online.

Here's are links to our 2016 race calendar and the British Series.  And due to popular demand there'll be a new one hour classic race - the London Region Classic on Saturday1st October at Lee Valley VeloPark [aka the Olympic Park] - make sure that's in your diary.

Roller ski courses & practice sessions

Our roller ski teaching programme starts with a beginners' course on 8 May - make this the year you learn to roller ski or persuade a friend to try it!

Club members can also practice/train and use the Club house on dates when we have circuit booked for other events.  These aren't listed in our main calendar [it's already rather long!] but you'll find a reminder of the dates on the practice sessions page.

2016-2017 Club ski trips

Our cross country skiing programme is taking shape - have a look at what's being planned for next season and beyond.

If you want to learn to ski, or to become a better skier, the Seefeld trip is designed for beginners/ novices and improvers who want a holiday with tuition. If you've got friends who've been meaning to try cross country skiing - tempt them with this one.

If you're interested in any of the trips that are currently being researched, do let the organiser know.  It makes it much easier if you have an idea of numbers and there's no obligation at this stage ...

Hope you like what's being planned for the next skiing seasons and look forward to seeing you at our events.

They're fun events for any level of skier and they can also give you a good workout.
