Club runs - 18th Feb

Post by WorcsPhil » 12 Feb 2018 17:30

A healthy 23 riders out on Sunday, for a pleasant ride in the sun, snow and wind. Heading northwest was particularly pleasant, so I hope you all did your share on the front!

Anyway, after last week's plea, more to the point this week...This Sunday's rides are yet to be filled, but some good Samaritan will hopefully stroll into town, head to the saloon, order a whisky and lead the townsfolk to salvation.

This week's rides are:

A/B: Upton - Neil Lynch
C: Charlecote - Si Walker

the Lord give'th and the Lord take'th away. Thanks anyway, Nick.

We're back to needing three leaders this weekend...and for once, the weather looks quite splendid, so it would be a good week to get your name down...dust off your summer bike, roll up your trouser legs and come along to a good-old fashioned club run.

I'll take a A run to Upton upon Severn, it be around 120k but ( relatively) pan flat. If no B run leader comes forward them happy to make it a slow A/fast B run. Route to follow shortly

I'll take the C ride to Charlecote, it will be 54 miles return from the BH and fairly flat.
Weather is predicted to be cloudy and low temperatures, max 8 deg. Having been out on Friday there was some black ice in shaded places on the lanes.
If you are a new rider, please wear suitable clothing to keep warm and dry and carry appropriate cycles spares and money.

Rather than take the ford at Shell (which will probably be impossible to ride across) you might want to turn right, as you come down from Broughton Green, instead of left. I was down that way on Friday and I can't imagine the ford will be down enough for people to cycle across safely. Walking across the bridge, next to it, will get your shoes covered in mud. Easier option, right then left at T junction towards Himbleton.

Your Average Joe. Fitter than some, not as fit as others.

Wayne's tip about missing the Ford at Shell wasn't needed, as the route wasn't quite as advertised due to garmin failure. Big thanks to Paul for navigation, and to all who took a turn up front on what felt like a pacy run.

Attendees:
Paul Johnson
Phill Elwell
Andy Wrightson
Ben crone
Lee Spiers
Jon Hitchcock
