Club runs - 16th July

Post by WorcsPhil » 10 Jul 2017 08:06

Good to see 32 riders out on Sunday on a perfect summer's day...thanks to the leaders who stepped up....with Mr Broken ribs himself Andy Wrightson dosing up on Ibroprufen to lead the B-ride. Excellent to see Peter Sagan on the A-run, back in training after his tour shenanigans...hope the A-riders weren't pushed off into the ditches....and that route looked familiar, I have a copyright on that...Chris you me 50p. Thanks also to Pete Norman for stepping up and leading the C-ride at short notice.

Raphael's in Evesham is scheduled to re-open on Friday, and hence this week's rides may all head off down there with a substitute café up sleeves in case of congestion...In addition, there is also a Beacon day out on Wednesday to Hereford and Gospel Pass, organised by Andy Terry...see the facebook page for more details

This week's rides are:

A: Raphaels in Evesham - Paul Johnson
B: Croome Park - Phil Gameson
C: Raphaels in Evesham - Dave Cox

I'll lead the B run to Croome Park. I will post a route in the next couple of days, but I expect it will be around 65 miles and not particularly hilly.
Pace will be determined by the group as a whole.

Here is my route for Sunday - http://www.bikely.com/maps/bike-path/Be ... roome-Park
This is 62 miles (100 Km) and according to Ride with GPS has 3,200 feet of climbing. [A relatively flat club run is about 2,400 feet and a hilly one 4,500 feet.]

The B run to Croome Park was pretty uneventful, apart from the vast numbers of other bikes on the road. Apart from joining the route of a sportive once if not twice, we also got passed by the Saracens and a group from Halesowen (the average age of the Saracens was probably three times that of Halesowen). Croome Park was also heaving with cyclists, but we got served promptly.
I think the pace suited everyone - everyone being:
Phi Gameson (Leader)
Si Walker
Simon Woodward
Neil Evanson
Laura Derbyshire
Paul Derbyshire
Phil Gameson

On today's A ride to Raphael's in Evesham, we answered the question "If one cyclist needs a loo stop mid-bike ride, what percentage of cyclists in the immediate vicinity will also spontaneously decide they also need a loo stop?"...answer - 66.67% :)

It worked well having 2 groups doing different routes but meeting at the same cafe at the same time I thought - nice to meet some new Beacon members from the C ride today - good luck for those doing London to Paris this week!

A riders this week were:

Jess Rhodes-Jones (leading)
Andy Wrightson
Neil Orchard
John Hitchcock
Phil Elwell
Dom Walker
Keith Adcock
Rob Wade
Kevin Young
Vincent Tennant
Matt Cavendish-Regan
Tim Jarvis
Stuart White (peeled off part way to the cafe stop)
Nick Shenton and Alan Weaver (with us to the cafe, carried on home with no bread pudding!)
