Rides for Easter Weekend
Final details will be posted up 17/4. Plenty of people away, but there will be 4 rides.
Tuesday training rides
Lee Staples is once again running a weekly training ride on a Tuesday evening (7.30pm from the Rose and Crown). The rides focus on developing group riding skills, and all are welcome. You can find more details by CLICKING HERE, where you can join the training ride group.
******This week we all learnt how to be super domestiques - riding in line, passing water bottles etc - good fun, and great experience of working in a close group*************
Liege Bastogne Liege – spaces going!
At the last count we have some 15 club members going to Liege – doing the sportive on the Saturday (three different lengths) and watching the pro-race on Sunday. There are more details HERE. Various injuries mean there are two free spots going – free meaning booked hotel space, transport and sportive entry. This will be a brilliant trip – if interested please get in touch with Chris Moss (email details on the event page).
Follow up to the Group Ride Survey.
Many thanks to the (near) 60 of you who completed the survey. Results were discussed at the Club meeting on 7 April. Aside from moving to a four-level ride structure (see above), there are other constructive plans afoot….they’ll be introduced step by step. One example is that the Club is looking to develop support and training for ride leaders, covering safety, leadership, guidance for new joiners and so on. Many individuals indicated they would be interested in leading rides, given such training – if you are one, please send an email to Steve Riley at email@example.com.
