A, B and C Club runs October, November and December 2019

Post by WorcsPhil » 23 Sep 2019 12:55

...and so, the perpetual hamster wheel of club runs continues into a new season. October sees the start of a new season of club runs, and we're all keen for new ideas and new things to look forward to.

So, after speaking to Pete Norman, an esteemed Beacon member, we'll try an experiment with the C-rides to see if it encourages greater leader commitment. For the first 8 weeks of the new season, I have selected the destinations for C-rides, and the ridewithgps gpx routes for these will be input in a message below. So all the C-riders need to do is post who will lead that week, the route and support are already provided. If you post beforehand that you'll lead then you get the full 3 club run points, surely no higher reward!

If you want to change the destination then you're free to do so, but we'll see how this new approach works, and if good, we'll continue with it, if not, we'll revert to the old way!

A and B riders, you still have carte blanche to lead wherever you want, so post here and in the weekly threads to get your name down.

In short, if you are able to lead a club run or two, please post the date and café destination on this thread. Discussion about individual rides, including rider lists, should be done in a separate thread, which I'll continue to post each Monday.

As per the above message, the routes for the four C-ride locations are as follows:

Hillers - https://ridewithgps.com/routes/9588045
Worcester Country Park - https://ridewithgps.com/routes/10976764
Stourport - https://ridewithgps.com/routes/26772661
Lavender Hall - https://ridewithgps.com/routes/31169426

These seem to cover a variety of directions, all just about 50 miles and the cafes don't need booking. Pete Norman is more than happy to help out any new leaders, and will provide assistance, and give positive feedback etc to anyone who wishes to volunteer to lead.

Congratulations on the new C run initiative, Phil and Pete.

I was already planning to volunteer to lead a C run on 27 October, and the additional prospect of three clubrun points has me so excited that I feel compelled to dive in immediately. While I'm generally happy to devise my own routes, I can't imagine that I would come up with anything better than the one that is already proposed, so Lavender Hall it is.

I thoought that three points was only allowed for the intro ride. I'm probably about 5 years out of date
