Club runs - 25th June

Post by WorcsPhil » 19 Jun 2017 07:47

Great to see nearly 40 riders out on the weekend on the 3 club runs. Apparently it was quite warm, but as I was slaving over a hot stove all morning, I missed it all - so very envious. It was almost a perfect set of club runs in that the B-run contained the right mix of people stepping up from the C-ride, all ably led by Andy Wrightson...thanks Andy. Credit due also to Chris Ashford for leading the wasp-infused A-ride and some inexperienced bloke called Dave Cole leading the C-ride...thanks Dave and Chris.

It's the 500kms club run this weekend from Birmingham to Portmadoc and back, so some people will be away pedalling for approximately 24 of the weekend hours, but normal rides are also encouraged, so thanks to Phil Elwall for an early statement in leading the B-ride. Enjoy the week, we don't get too many like this...

A: Coalport - Rob Wade (08:15 start)
B: Hilliers Café, Alcester - Phil Elwall
C: Volunteer required

...oh, and let's start populating the July/August/September leaders thread please, be good to get this more filled in advance.

I can have a go at leading the A ride to Coalport although I've only rode a few A rides so not sure what pace I'll comfortably manage. I'd like to meet at 8:00 for an 8:15 start. If all the A riders are on the 500km I'll just have to do an hours worth of Northfield laps until the B run starts.

I'll plot and post a route tonight.

A run was a select group of 3.

Rob Wade (leading)
Ryan Evanson
Joe Warwood

Thanks Ryan & Joe for not making my 1st A run lead a solo and helping out on front. Somehow we suffered little more than a few minutes of light drizzle.

Joe experienced a fall due to 2 other cyclists turning across our path without looking or signalling but thankfully wasn't injured.

Fabulous effort from all on the 500kms club ride this weekend. It seems miserly to only award one club run point for such a ride, but thanks to all who said "yes, that sounds like fun" when it was suggested a two-day bike adventure over some of the hardest roads in Wales might be interesting. It was a tough ride with big climbs, mist, incessant drizzly rain on the return leg, and unfortunately one crash, in that Andy Wrightson fell whilst descending some steep, misty Welsh mountain. On the weekend's adventure were:

Phil Richards (leading)
Chris Ashford
Leonie Balter
Fenella Brown
Adam Green
Martin McGowan
Neil Orchard
Trev Richards
Vince Tennant
Ben Walmsley
Craig Walmsley
Jon Williams
Andy Wrightson

...and a huge thanks to our two soigneurs and navigator...such an adventure would be impossible without your help, so a big thanks from all of us!
