Saturday Club Ride : 5th September 2020

Here is the the route for this Saturday's club ride.

I had intended a variation but there's another road closure to avoid.

Meet up at 8:30am, outside Priory School.

SD groups if necessary.

Please bring route if you have the tech, but it would take some skill to get lost this close to Weston. Although I dare say it could be done.

Saturday Club Ride : 29th August 2020

Sunday Club Ride : 23rd August 2020

As per suggested café destination, here is the route for this Sunday. I've tried to avoid as much headwind as possible.

Café stop planned at Sweets.

Meet up at 9am, outside Priory School

We will, again, be observing British Cycling recommended group sizing, i.e. up to six in a group, with staggered starts.

Please bring the route on a fancy electronic gadget if you have one.

Saturday Club Ride ?

At the moment, there is no club ride planned, due to adverse weather conditions.

With 20 - 30 MPH winds forecast, it isn't appropriate to have a club ride that is supposed to be an easier ride and aimed at new riders.

If the situation changes, a route will be posted, but possibly not until Friday evening.

Update: Friday evening.

If anything the weather forecast has got worse. Consistently above 20MPH and a strong possibility of rain on the return leg. So, unfortunately, there is no planned club ride this Saturday.

Wednesday Evening Club Ride : 19th August 2020

This weeks route has been suggested by birthday boy Russ. So why not come and enjoy his suggestion for this weeks route (with minor amendments for road closures) - cake was mentioned, but don't hold your breath.

Meet up at 6pm, outside Priory School

Sunday Club Ride : 16th August 2020

Here's the suggested route for this Sunday's club ride.

Please note. We are having to ensure the club abides by British Cycling recommendations in order to not nullify our 3rd party insurance.

Consequently, we will depart in groups of up to six, a few minutes apart.

We will be asking for a volunteer to act as leader/co-ordinator to keep their group on track (please bring the route with you on a Garmin or Wahoo, etc) and to try to keep group separation.

We would appreciate all club members cooperating with these measures.

Meet up at 9am, outside Priory School

Saturday Morning Club Ride : 15th August 2020

I rode a route around Kenn earlier in the week and there's at least five sets of temporary traffic lights on the usual route, which would mostly be unavoidable. Fortunately, we have the option of a southern route, with just the one road closure to avoid.

The weather is looking a little 'iffy' but I'll give it a go if you will.

Meet up at 8:30, outside Priory School.

Wednesday Evening Club Ride : 12th August 2020

There is a considerable degree of uncertainty over the weather this week, but here is a suggested route should the ride go ahead.

Meet up at 6pm, outside Priory School.

Note. To conform to current social distancing rules, please, if you can, bring the route with you on your Garmin/Wahoo etc. We aim to split rides up into groups of up to six, with five minutes between groups. This is necessary due to British Cycling and implications with club 3rd party insurance.
