Secret Santa Night & Prize Presentation


A short ride up to Fineshade before the party & prize presentation ensured that everyone was hungry for festive food.

Appropriately decorated helmets were the order of the night with reindeer antlers being the common theme although Ben’s flashing fairy lights didn’t have the same effect indoors when it came to the judging. Local junior riders Keira McVitty & Jenny McAndrew were the jury & deemed Jerry Norman to be the winner with his toilet roll fashioned antlers.

The final presentations were for the Kings Cliffe Flyers Go-Ride Racing Series in which all three places overall were awarded to KCF riders &  the King Cliffe Flyers Youth Champion 2013

Fenland Clarion Floodlit cross races 13th December 2013 RESULTS


The forecast of heavy showers was thankfully wide of the mark as riders had the pleasure of riding on a mild December evening with nothing more than a few spots of rain. In fact it was nearby traffic congestion that caused the main obstacle in actually getting to the city centre venue. With twenty riders entered and split into three age groups an exciting evenings racing some revealed itself.

Kings Cliffe Flyers had the most successful evening with places in all three age groups including a dominant display in the 9 years old from Harry Tilley & Jensen Barraclough, Spalding C.C. only had the one entry in Cameron Neilson however he was undefeated in the 10’s and over, as was Adam Lea in the 8’s and under, while two of the most combative riders Harry Garfield and Mia Purnell each picked up a third place.

Secret Santa Night – Thursday 28th November


Santa is a busy man so he’ll be making an early visit to Kings Cliffe on Thurs 28th Nov just before the prize presentation.

There will be the normal MTB ride up to Fineshade leaving at 6.30pm from Kings Cliffe Active which will return in time for the cycling quiz, nibbles & hot chocolate. Santa will distribute the presents & there will be a special prize for the best decorated helmet. Annual prize presentation at approx.  7.20pm or earlier if no ride due to poor weather. You don’t have to ride to come to the presentation afterwards.

All youth riders welcome. Just bring along a wrapped present valued £3.00 – £5.00 to be placed in Santa’s sack. I will bring the hot chocolate. If you could all bring a little something whether sweet or savoury or even healthy so you can have a picnic that would be great.

Parents – I’ll be on the ride so if any of you could get there for 7pm to set up a few tables and chairs, lay out some of the food & get the kettle on please get in touch.

Why not ask for a Kings Cliffe Flyers t-shirt £8 or hoodie £16 as Christmas present?  Available on the night or give me call 07983 809120.

Fenland Clarion Floodlit cross races 8th November 2013 results

Despite an absolute downpour just an hour before the start threatening to spoil the evening’s races seventeen riders took to the startline in the first of these cyclocross events organised by Fenland Clarion. With the ground still soft on top and most definitely wet the conditions were going to test the young riders along with the challenges of the course. The riders were split into three age groups, and it was the eights and under who got the evening under way with a victory in the one lap event for Rhys Burton from St.Ives C.C. with Jessica Lea taking second ahead of three Fenland riders in Jack Ray, Joel Coulson, and Charlotte Bullard as well as her brother Daniel. With a host of nine year old riders they got their own age group to ride in, and it started with a win for Harry Tilley from Kings Cliffe Flyers ahead of clubmate Jensen Barraclough with the ever competitive Bourne Wheeler Harry Garfield taking third. In the tens and over it started with a one two for the host clubs Ieuan Williams ahead of Georgia Bullard with Elizabeth McLoughlin of Witham Wheelers holding off the challenge of Fenlands Abigail Cameron.
