XC skiing in Cogne, Italy

Hello Dominic

Have the Rio Olympics turned you into a late night couch potato?  They finish next weekend so get your roller skis [or bikes] out again for our upcoming events.
Two new ones are on our calendar and if you want to go further afield there's also the Huntley roller ski championships in Scotland.

New event - South Coast Summer Roll 21/8

Next Sunday join other Club members for a long roller ski at this popular event at Goodwood Circuit.  It's for anyone on wheels so long as they're not pedal or motor powered, so no bikes I'm afraid.  The wide track is 2.4 miles long and 11 laps gives you a full marathon.  Contact Jeremy Price our new Events Officer for meeting details.

And you'll get home in time for the Olympics Closing Ceremony with BBC coverage starting at 23:25 BST!

New event - Cambridge Busway roller ski & cycle 11/9

On Sunday 11 September there's a Club trip to roller ski and cycle through the Cambridgeshire countryside on this excellent route.  You can choose between 40km and 20km options so contact Jeremy Price for meeting details and lift sharing possibilities.

18/9 - roller ski taster & courses start

Sports massage/injury clinic 18/9 - book your slot

Here's a chance to discover the benefits of a sports massage or have an problem assessed.  Sports massage can help you prepare, recover and get the most out of your body - you must book in advance - book your slot now [open to all not just LRNSC members].
