A, B and C Club runs for April, May and June 2018

Post by WorcsPhil » 05 Mar 2018 13:15

It's springummer! This is the period when the spring classics turn into the prime cycling months of May and June, so put away your salbutamol, no need for jiffy bags, it's all about social riding on club runs of such extraordinary diversity, it'll make your eyes well up with emotion. In this quarter, there may be 200kms rides, 400kms rides, circumcisions of Birmingham, lots of short rides to lovely cafes and hopefully a few awaydays to the moors of Staffordshire with the pied piper of Iverley himself, Mr Nick Shenton...so check you diaries, be inventive and get posting below. If it's your first time leading, you will receive massive acclaim, so don't be put-off, be great to hear from you. Old hands in this leadership lark are obviously also encouraged!

If you are able to lead a club run or two, please post the date and café destination on this thread, and I'll add you onto this diary....

Note: 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 will post each Monday morning before the ride in question.

I have some dates for 2 alternative club rides/organised events

22nd April - April Fool Sportive - https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/april-fo ... 2361175416

20th May - Dougie Mac Llangollen ride - http://www.dmhospice.org.uk/eventold/do ... bike-ride/

Both rides are for charity and are great local events that both start and finish in North Staffordshire.

Advanced booking is recommended but not essential as entry can be paid for on the day.

I'm really interested in doing the circuit of Birmingham ride at a C pace. Can't yet commit to lead because not yet sure about family visits.

I'll lead a run on 10 June. Provisionally, it'll be a B run (roughly 26kph). However, that does depend on me first demonstrating to myself that I have regained the necessary strength and fitness. I'll confirm one way or the other a month in advance. If I have any lingering doubts about my ability to lead a B run, it'll be a C run.

In the following three-month block, I intend to lead another retro/C run, probably late August or September. Details in due course.

When the February Intro Ride couldn't go ahead, I said that I would try to lead an Intro Ride in one of the following months instead. However, ridiculous though it may sound, it turns out that I have conflicting plans on every one of the first Sundays of the month throughout the summer. So (unless something falls through) I'm not available to do an Intro Ride before autumn. Sorry!

New cafe (I think) I'll take a A run on. The 29/4, to The Den Cafe, Stanford Bridge. Route to follow but likely to be on the lumpy side considering the area.
