    Hi all. Planning fail on my part. I’m now away next week-end (Sun 19th) and I’m down on the rota to lead. Any takers?

    Chris M is now doing 28th April. Free slot for anyone on 14th April. G1s feeling like a “slightly” slower ride? New leaders?

    Thanks for the feedback. 2 Free slots on 14 and 28 April. Any volunteers? G1s welcome of course at a G2 pace, leading or otherwise…

    Draft rota from April 2019. If you can’t make a slot it would be great if you could agree a swap with someone else and let me know. Best to contact me direct on whatsapp if possible. Also I’m assuming G1 will be up and running during this time.

    If I’ve missed anyone or anyone else wants to give it a go let know.

    Both a bump up the page and a gentle nudge that, as I am still not back on the bike, I will not be able to lead the ride this Sunday (unless you want to go at G20 pace…). Might be out, but at a very gentle pace for a few miles…

    Hi All – I see i’m down to lead with Hamish on 9th Dec.
    I’m still off the bike after a month and a bit of sciatica, so I think it may be better to look for a replacement.

    As I can now bend far enough to tie my own shoe laces again (No, I’m not old enough for Velcro work shoes just yet…), I am thinking of trying a short spin in the next week or two to test the water – aiming for G7 pace.. my guess is that it’ll be 2019 before I have any level of fitness at all… as two weeks of the layoff was spent in Florida, I have a few pounds to shed as well…

    Hopefully, i’ll see you at the G quite soon…
    Cheers,
    Tony

    Hi
    14 October is now a club open day – so the more helpers and leaders the better. Richard and Toby are down for that at present.

    Thanks for organising. Soz but I’m away on my slot on 25/11. I’m also away on 18/11 and 30/9 (just for the record). I’m happy to swap for an earlier slot as my next one is going to be swallowed up by the open day on 7/10.

    First, but not the last I hope…. i’m Away next weekend at my school reunion (some classmates I’ve known for 50 years!). Could somebody swap?? I could do 7th October, then I’m away on holiday for 2 weeks so we’re into November…. I’ll also put this on G2 WhatsApp. Apologies all…

    Hi

    We have 10 people committed to ride leading for G2 Sundays. I will continue overall coordination – and also deal with any feedback and issues that crop up on G2 Runs. However, we have a great group willing to do this. As you can see from the table below, I have allocated two individuals for every Sunday. It’s great to have two helping each other out when needed – and sometimes people need to withdraw at short notice. I don’t have everyone’s diaries, but if you can’t do a particular Sunday, it’s your job to find someone to swap with. Please use the G2 What’s App group to do that – and if you are not on that, message me if necessary. The What’s App group is brilliant for quick comms.
    The second task is to post up a ride for your event date – people really appreciate seeing what lies ahead. If you don’t know how to do that, again, message on whats app. There is a good range of rides if you are stuck for ideas on the club’s Ride With GPS Account – follow the link.
    The club already has guidance on ride leading. The notes below the table are guidance on pace/standards expected.

    I’d say G2 is for people who are capable of doing a hilly 80 mile sportive at decent pace (certainly sub 5 hours) and can spin “reasonably” quickly up most hills in our area. Averages always tricky, but flat routes 18mph, mixed at 17mph and very lumpy (Kentish Killer stuff) at 16mph. G1 can be a couple of mph more, though it’s really speed up hills and maintaining power which is the difference. G1 can get competitive and you need to be able to maintain quite a high pace in order to not get dropped – particularly on hills.

    People won’t get dropped on G2 (aside from the odd hill and then regroup), and will never be left behind. The focus really is on enjoyable group riding at a good pace. However, Ride Leaders need to tell people if they are pushing too fast for the group, and also politely feedback if the individual needs to work on their fitness to stay at this level. We really want to encourage members to move up and down groups. I am an example of that – when very fit I can participate in G1. Most of the time that speed now stretches me too much – but I still like a reasonably quick ride!

    Thanks in advance everyone.

    Chris
