A, B and C Club Runs October, November and December 2018

Post by WorcsPhil » 20 Sep 2018 11:49

The new 2018/2019 club run season starts here, and what could be better as the nights draw in and your seasonality affective disorder re-ignites but to contemplate the pure joy that comes from riding your bike with like-minded people, in like-minded kits. The racing and TT season will end, so come along again on club runs, where bacon sandwiches dominate, and hearty discussions on the issues of the day will keep you entertained. Newcomers welcome, of course, as well as those who used to ride club runs but now ride solo...come along again!

Be inventive, go to new places, or old places...short club rides welcome. If you want one, volunteer to lead one.. Build it, and they will come.

If you are able to lead a club run or two, please post the date and café destination on this thread.

Note: This purpose of this topic is compile the schedule of club runs. Discussion about individual rides, including rider lists, should be done in a separate thread which I will post each week in good time - one for each Sunday.

I will take a steady B run out to Shelsey Walsh on Sunday 7th October to watch some of the Midland Hill Climbing Championships and support our Beacon riders. This will be post Beacon Audax, so a steady ride for sure, should be ~100k round trip (route TBC).

We will probably leave at 09:15 (standard time) to watch the Women's @11:45 (Junior / Vet / Senior) and if anyone wants to stay for longer then the Men's (Junior / Vet / Senior) commence from 14:15 - see timings below.

Time Category Length
10.15 U8 yrs 10 Minutes
10.30 U10 yrs 10 Minutes
10.50 U12 yrs 15 Minutes
11.45 Junior Women 40 Minutes

If anyone has been before can they confirm the cafe situation? There seems to be a restaurant on site, but don't know about coffee shops etc.

Yep doing an Academy run to Gorcott Hill for the Redditch hill climb next Saturday. Will be at intro pace, just 20miles there and back, so we all have a chance of winning the hill climb 😀
Starting and finishing at Rowheath Pavilion cafe Bournville. All welcome. Hill climb is optional you can just get a beer and support!

Academy run cancelled. Too much debris about and high winds. Drive to Redditch hill climb instead!
