A, B and C Club runs April, May and June 2019

Post by WorcsPhil » 06 Mar 2019 19:37

Spring has sprung...and as the classics season turn into the grand tours, summer bikes come out, Stuart's order for mankini's in the tricolore of Beacon RCC arrive and we all look splendid as we ride off to the wondrous cafes of Worcestershire and Warwickshire, and occasionally Staffordshire, white skin itching to be tanned for the Summer. As ever, I long for the diary below to fill up with leaders all vying to put themselves forward and give back to the club that gives so much. You'll see reference to a couple of ridiculous rides below, but please feel free to post alternatives and rides to wherever you want (within reason)

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

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 that I will post every week.

On 19th May I'll lead a C pace run to the 98th Annual Meriden Memorial Service. It will be an early start at 8.15 so we can stop at Lavender Hall for refreshments. The Service starts at 11.00 and there is tea and cake afterwards. There is an option to return directly from Lavender Hall for a shorter run.

I'll lead a B run on 19 May. If the weather in the run-up looks encouraging, and if there's appetite, I might make it a two-stop hundred-in-eight. Otherwise a conventional distance to a well-used destination, e.g. Spetchley. Details to follow early May.

I’m proposing an alternative club ride on 12th May from Stoke to Llangollen and back.

This is ideal for those of you wanting to avoid the hoarding masses of cyclists on the Velo Birmingham event.

Starting from Trentham Gardens in Stoke-On-Trent- More details to follow on the Beacon Facebook page and Messageboard.

Sunday 9th June is the Birmingham British Cycling closed road Let's Ride event. Perfect opportunity to do a super intro/family ride straight down the A38 and use the new segregated bike lane (which is to be finished in May, only delivered 5months late by Amey!) and enjoy the closed roads in the city centre around the bull ring, Aston uni, moor street etc.
There are youth races 3-5pm afterwards too.
Can register for it here https://www.letsride.co.uk/events/birmingham

I can lead the A run on the 21st. It's subject to change, but I'm thinking of going to Broad Acres Fisheries. It's not that far away, so we'll take the scenic route.

Sadly I will no longer be available to lead the Sunday A run on 28th April.

I had prewarned the cafe at Ilmington and planned a route and will need to notify them that I no longer intend to use them as a destination. . If anyone wishes to continue with Ilmington then please let me know. My proposed route had been https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29529876
