Following the poor weather on 18th March we now kick off our outdoor training on Sunday 25th March from12:30pm weather perrmitting (keep an eye on Facebook page for latest updates).
Thanks to the very small number of members who offered some of their time but I'm afraid that wasn't enough to enable me to proceed with my ambitious plans. Maybe next time.
AS OF TODAY, Sunday 18th March 2018 we have only 8 active members, and just two of them under 40, so no surprise we've had to forget about any kind of league committment for this year.
We resumed our indoor activities on Saturday 10th March at Blyth Sports Centre for ourselves and any willing Under 16s. Match results here on 2018 Training page.
We need as many of you as possible to attend as many matches as possible this year. We now know about the weekend commitments of Jason, Dan and possibly Shane and Keith who all look set to become honorary Scotsmen for the 2018 NL season. We already have one Challenge match set up with Hull, home and away (thank you Andy Schofield) and will try to plan a few more outings for the full Vikings squad, with one or two clubs keen to have us visit them for friendly matches. Please keep an eye on Facebook and on here for further updates.
Outdoor training starts on Sunday 18th march, 2018 at 12:30 weather permitting (keep an eye on Facebook page for latest updates).
Robins Wrap It Up For Christmas
Saturday 9th December saw the final (7th) round of our indoor Winter League season before we closed it all up until mid February when we entertain the Council's local Inclusion Department and kick off the Spring League. See Training Page for full details of the final conflict. East End Robins continued their dazzling form aided nicely by the return of JP Colback who hadn't raced in the league this series but sure went out with a bang on his first appearance.
Why not pop along and take a look? Northumbria Vikings are always looking for new riders of any age but particularly teenage BMX riders with excellent bike handling skills. We have plenty of kit for anyone who'd like to try the sport for themselves, all completely free of charge and with expert supervision and coaching advice. All you have to do is ask!
Outdoor training starts on Sunday 25th March 2018 from 12:30pm, weather permitting.
