A, B and C Club runs July, August and September 2018

Post by WorcsPhil » 18 Jun 2018 09:23

It's the final quarter of the club run season, but what a three months to end with. High and late summer is made for getting out on your bike and riding with your chums to a far way café to discuss the fundamentals of life. Let's not have small talk about cassette ratios, tyre choices etc, let's talk about religion, bigotry, French politics and Milan fashion week, as well as your top three rides that you'll take to your grave as great moments in your life. Also, how about getting ahead of yourself and volunteering to lead a ride...who knows, you may even enjoy it.

There was even talk of a '100 in as long as it takes' in July or August, i.e. no time limits, and a challenge for those who don't ride this distance regularly...anyone care to lead this?

If you are able to lead a club run or two, please post the date and café destination on this thread.

Note: This purpose of this topic is compile the schedule of club runs. Discussion about individual rides, including rider lists, should be done in a separate thread - one for each Sunday.

I'll lead a retro+C run this quarter. It'll probably be 12 August; confirmation of the date and other details to follow in the next month or so.

Diary permitting and approval from the organisers, I will lead a 200k on the 5th August "Tramping the Two Loop" Audax.

The plan would be to alter the order of the route to start at Barnt Green - Honeybourne - Banbury - Honeybourne - Barnt Green, rather than the two loops from Honeybourne.

If I can't lead, it might still work out as a nice route on some new roads for others to pick up on.

I’m proposing a 200km A Run on the 26th August, weather permitting.

Heading out from Northfield up to Brewood, the plan is to head North West across to Newport then onto Ecclehsall & Stone.

We then head back South via Milford & Penkridge before coming back through Brewood and Kinver on the return leg to Northfield.

I think we can manage on a 2 stop strategy as there are plenty of places we pass on the way if anyone needs a refill of bottles.

Start time tbc but the earlier the better.
