Post by WorcsPhil » 28 Nov 2016 09:22

So we enter 2017, a post-Olympic, post-Brexit, post-Trump year...Given these 'wonderful' occasions in 2016, what we need is a healthy start to club runs in 2017. Pedal your inner demons away and volunteer to lead. If you are able to lead a club run or two, please post the date and caf� destination on this thread.

This purpose of this topic is compile the schedule of club runs. Discussion about individual rides, including rider lists, will be done in a separate thread - one for each Sunday, which I'll post each Monday preceding the ride.

Using Phil's new bullying tactics whereupon I ran various club members around Alcester in a headlock until they relented (I lied about the violence) we've managed to fill a few gaps and have a couple of new volunteers for C runs - so thank you to both Mikes on Phil's behalf! All destinations TBC.

1st Jan - Andy Wrightson (volunteered by someone else - so it's only a potential)?
8th Jan - Dave Cox
22nd Jan - Colin Groves
12th Mar - Mike Preece
19th Mar - Colin Groves
26th Mar - Mike Balenski

From discussions today it seems confidence in route planning is an issue. My comment is that nobody's going to scorn you for having a go - and generally there will be people on the run who can help you out as happened on my last B run where we stumbled upon a road closure which left me scratching my head.

I will take the A-ride to Evesham on the 15/01.

I haven't done the route before but it looks fairly main roads so should be ok even if a bit cold. However it is p***ing down I won't be there (I don't do getting my hair wet)...

Cheers

I'll take an alternative B/C run to Cannock Chase (off-road) on the 5th March. MTB and CX welcome. No real pace to follow, just fun and mud in the forest, with a quality bacon sarnie for afterwards....

Apologies guys but I'm down to lead a C ride next week (26th March). Should probably call this now and say I'm best rescheduling this. I volunteered back in December but have been finalising my divorce the last couple of months and as such not made any rides close to 50 miles for a while (possibly this year?!!) Think I should at least get a couple of C runs under my belt again before I think about leading. Hope thats okay... I'll look to reschedule once I'm back to being a regular attendee! Will hopefully back 'making up the numbers' in a couple of weeks. Thanks Mike :)

As it's mothers day this Sunday and need to get back I'll lead a beacon burst, probably about 45ish miles returning about 12ish, it'll be A/B run pace. I'll post again tomorrow to see if there's enough interest.
