The Masters Organisation was set up to provide World class events for riders over 35 years old outside those chosen by their National Federations. It is also intended to allow riders to compete at such as World level for as long as they wish to remain competitive and increase participation in their respective age groups.
We are an entirely self-funded non-profit making body and receive no support from any NGB or other sporting organisation of Great Britain.
Despite this we have a proven track (no pun intended) or providing high class events, something which the UCI pointed out this year when they agreed to at the World Masters Track Championships should remain in Great Britain until 2016 at the earliest.
We are sure that 2013 will be as well supported as 2011 when the event returned to Manchester for the first time since 2006.

Three Bees was born out of three things; the importance of physically making things, a love of bees and a desire to cut down on the day-to-day consumption of disposable plastics.
It all began in 2012 with a series of soap making experiments. For Tom, who has a PhD in Chemistry, and Alex, whose sense of smell is a source of joy and surprise, it felt natural that these experiments grew in scope and number.
Upon discovering that beeswax is an incredible ingredient for soap making, the link was forged! Our soap took on a function greater than itself: no longer simply a bathroom staple, it was a spring board for talking about bees, the environment, people and how they interact. We began running fun and interactive workshops about bees with people of all ages. Ellis joined the team and made everything work better.
Our product range is steadily expanding as we discover new, useful and natural uses for beeswax and honey. The interactive workshops have grown too, into an bee and environment themed education programme that we deliver at primary schools across Manchester.
