Introductory Rides 2016

Post by WorcsPhil » 29 Dec 2015 23:39

Apologies…I’m new to this club run organising lark, and this is late, so I suspect that there will be no January intro ride, but…

… as usual we need a good mix of volunteers for these rides which are proving to be as popular as ever. Just so you know the 2015 intro rides had 79 riders, excluding leaders, with 16 riders in August alone - so there is great interest, it’s not just hollow words.

So can we please, please have some ride leaders and support riders to er…support. We have more than enough competent members that you only need turn out for two Sundays a year, once as leader and once as support. If you don't feel confident as leader then just volunteer as a support rider.

3rd January - no intro ride
7th February - (L) Gary Macintosh (S) John Deeley - Destination TBC
6th March - (L) George Barker (S) Andy Deere - Destination TBC
3rd April - (L) Helen Jamieson (S) John Deeley - Destination TBC
1st May - (L) Andy Terry (S) Gary Macintosh - Destination Akamba Solihull
5th June - (L) Gary Macintosh (S)
3rd July – (L) Dave Cole(S) Kevin Frobisher - Destination TBC

7th August - (L) Pete Marshall - Stables at Earlswood (S) Colin Hall
4th September - (L) Bob Green - Cutnall Green. (S)
2nd October - (L) Pete Norman - Banners at Bromsgrove (S)
6th November – (L) Dave Cole (S)
4th December – (L) Andy Terry (S) Carolyn Clegg - destination Akamba

Thanks for taking this on Phil. I was about to message you direct last night but stopped myself because intro rides were previously coordinated separately by Paul & Deb (who have moved to France) and I wasn't sure whether you'd been asked or had agreed to look after those too.

Put me down for May (destination Akamba) and I don't mind fielding queries from potential riders.

Hi I'd like to lead February as long as no ice. Probably to Avoncroft Museum but I'll pop out and check it first. Bring money for cake and bike locks.

Apologies although I've checked the route to Avoncroft today my wife has just pointed out that we are going to be in Derbyshire the first weekend in Feb. Please would someone else do this run? Happy of course to lead one later in the year.

Hi Phil - unfortunately I have an ongoing injury which means I'm not riding my bike at all at the moment so can't support Dave Cole on Sunday's Intro Ride. However Phil Gameson has said he will ride as support instead. I'd like to thank him greatly for stepping in.

Phil, further to your call for leaders elsewhere:

I think it's preferable in various ways to spread the leading around. So, if you can find other people to lead, I shall wait until early next year before I volunteer again. (It's become a sort of tradition with me to make leading the Feb/March intro my first long ride of the New Year.) However, if in the immediate run-up to one of the October-December dates you find that you are really stuck, just PM me.
