Steve’s Briefs – December
The Club website is now the single-point contact for all information within the Club. The “Latest News” is being updated regularly, and the website is under constant development.
Before standing up on your pedals check the proximity of other riders behind you because you will lose speed with this action, and lose even more speed if you hesitate e.g. looking behind whilst standing up. This can cause real problems for following riders who will have to lose speed – and then have to catch up!
Many thanks to Carol, our President, who once again organised a most enjoyable Christmas party cycle ride with coffee at the Three Ways, Mickleton and lunch at the Round of Grass, Badsey.
The Club rides throughout the winter months. However, when temperatures approach freezing (3C and lower) ride leaders may choose not to lead the rides. In this situation riders will form their own groups taking account of the conditions. Freezing in itself is not necessarily a problem in continuing dry conditions, but when combined with wetness or moisture in sheltered spots can be very dangerous.
My best wishes to each of you for 2015.
