Team Hoppers Rollers is formed!
It’s official the Hoppers Rollers has turned into a full blown cycling club affiliated to British Cycling! We are aiming to cater for all standards of cycling from Social Cyclists (our rugby roots), through Sport Riders (category 3 and 4) to elite cyclists (Elite, cat 1 and 2). We have signed 4 top local cyclists who will compete at regional, national and international events under the Team Hoppers Rollers name and also signed up a number of sponsors to help fund the team.
Please consider joining the club (details below). You will get the opportunity to participate in many club events. As we do now there will club runs and pre match cycles and we hope to add for example a club sportive and a track day. But more than that if you want to progress your cycling to higher levels the club will help you try out time trials or road races.
We have set membership prices as follows:-
Existing members of Preston Grasshoppers (Social, Rugby, Full, VP etc) – just £20 extra will get you a Hoppers Rollers membership.
Non members will be asked to take out a social membership of PGRFC for £30 plus the £20 cycling club membership. You will then receive all the benefits of being a social member of the club (including a 10% discount card for alcoholic drinks at the bar).
