Club runs - 20th March

Post by WorcsPhil » 14 Mar 2016 09:24

So the sunny weather on Sunday was a blessed relief after a few weeks of wind and rain, and it was clear that Beacon cyclists were out and about on a variety of outings, but even though other events were going on, there were still 23 riders out on club runs.

This weeks rides are:

A: Volunteer required
B: Albrighton - Nick Shenton (meet at 08:15, 08:30 leave)
C: Worcester Country Park - John Deeley

Note earlier start for the B-run...if leaders want to do this, please do so...it sounds a good idea to get home earlier...or even get home at the same time but do longer rides, particularly as some members are building up to the 300kms club run in May

Nick - is the Albrighton run particularly long? Or is this aimed at an early finish?

Graham - it will be approx 72 miles Black Horse to Black Horse. The route is a bit lumpy on the way out through Kinver but not too bad after that.

I'm aiming to get everyone back earlier this week.

Is the C run going out through Tardebigge by any chance?

Andy, this was the route I'd got planned for Sunday


http://www.strava.com/routes/4362145


When I originally posted to lead, part of my reasoning for Worcester country park was that it was somewhere we hadn't been for some months (and last time we arrived it was closed due to a burst water main!) and they always seem to accommodate us no matter what size group we are. However I hadn't realised that Colin was going to Croome Park the week before and Dave Cox had taken us to Evesham 2 weeks ago both going out via the usual route of Barnt green/Tardebigge. In order to mix it up a little bit, I've got a sort of figure of eight route via Saint Kenelms, , Belbroughton, Wychbold, Hanbury, Crowle, and then back via Droitwich, timberhonger, catshill etc.

Hopefully you can intercept us at some point

A good turnout for this mornings c run which had an unscheduled lumpy detour before Saint Kenelms (a malfunctioning Garmin to blame or more likely user error!). A busy cafe greeted us at Worcester country park but service was reasonably quick.
We spilt up on the return waiting for Dave Little at Bournheath who had been accompanying James. Conflicting views as to whether Dave and James were in the front group or behind us ensued but cleared up when Dave arrived at the Black Horse a few minutes behind us. Many thanks for the rear gunner duties Dave.
Out today were
John Deeley (Lead)
Dennis Snape
Helen Jamieson
Simon Turner
Dave Little (sweeper)
Claire Fudge
Si Walker
Leonie Balter
Dave Cox
Phil Elwell
James Wilson
Mark Russell
Mark McConkey
Mark Gardner
Mike Balenski

joining us at the cafe and getting his orders in early was George Barker

James, glad you got back ok, a bit of confusion over whether you were ahead of us or not manifested, hope the legs are recovering

Dave, apologies, although I take no responsibility for the performance enhancing substances inhaled outside the Black Horse this morning nor Helen pushing me all the way up to Frankley Beeches

Thanks for leading today nic, food was good at the cafe and service was quick. Not sure if I enjoyed getting chased by a crazy dog and the cx route though! :D

That black lab should have earned itself a club run point surely!?
