and given my poor state of affairs in terms of cycling, I shall probably upgrade from an F to an E run.

Thanks, Si.

Can we pleeeaase have a B-ride volunteer leader this week, even if it's a more relaxed Beacon Burst as we want to make this transition work in the short and the long term, i.e. not just change from having no A-run to having no B-run.

Let's not fall at the first hurdle, in fact we haven't even got over the Melling Road (oblique horse racing reference!)

The re-classification seems like a good move. I do hope that leaders come fwd and support this. I can't be there as I am racing on Sunday. There are a couple of races around the Pinvin area if anyone is over that way. 10.00 am start from Bishampton village Hall.

C Ride

Post by Si_Walker » 26 Mar 2017 15:28

A large C group was split into 2 smaller groups at the start, a couple of mechanicals held up proceedings a little but all got to the Cafe. Gemma abandoned at the Cafe after the rear deraillier cable snapped and which could not be replaced. One group left ahead of the others at the cafe and later split into two to accommodate some slower riders, hope they all got back OK.

Thanks to the supporting leaders, Pete Norman and Si Turner and also to Adrian McHugh for arranging to get Gemma home.

There were several strong C riders out today which would be fine on a B ride at the the right pace.

Its a good idea to change your gear cables once a year or to carry a spare, they usually snap without warning and often inside the hood, which can make it tricky to fix by the road.

The C riders today were as follows;

Si Walker (Leading)
Nathan Burton
Sarah Dowden
Gemma Johnson
Neil Evanson
Torrin Gatier
Kyle Gatier
Colin Hall
Glyn Hughes
Dave Little
Mark McConkey
Adrian McHugh
Pete Norman (leading a small group from the Cafe)
Dan Robertson
Ash Turner
Simon Turner (leading the 2nd group from the BH and home)
Simon White
Simon Woodward

I managed a repair of sorts on Leonies chain and then got her back to the BH, she only had to get to Moseley so should have been ok

I hope some of today's C riders will join on the B ride to Arley next week.
