Club activities – week commencing 6th February 2017

Please find below details for all this week’s club activities. Saturday rides are to Green Dragon Eco Centre.

In addition to the normal weekend social rides there is a 50/50 ride on Thursday evening, the first of this year’s endurance rides on Sunday and the non-stop/training rides on Saturday and Sunday. There is no coaching this weekend as it is half-term.

We currently need leaders for the all rides on Saturday and Sunday so please leave a comment below, contact me via Facebook or email me at rides@bmcc2000.com if you can lead a ride.

Please also remember that if there are rides without leaders on Thursday evening they will be removed from the calendar (See the forum thread here: http://goo.gl/7mg9fY for more details).

NOTE: Mudguards are now mandatory on all club social rides (50/50 excluded obviously) until 1st March 2017. This is for the protection of other riders in the group. Please ensure that your mudguards are long enough (including mudguard flap) to prevent spray being thrown up behind you.

Notes
MTB better for less experienced riders, moderate climbing with, one big climb. Some of the going is fairly strenuous climbing on grass etc. The climb up to the Quainton Hill Mast is fairly long and difficult on grass and steep near the top going through badger sets, you may need to push this 50yds or so. Going is wet in winter at the bottom before the start of this climb and onto the lower section for ¼ mile or so.

Technical Level (1-5): 2
Pub/Cafe Stop: Eco Farm Cafe
Suitable for CX: No

Juniors & Coaching
Saturday 4th February 2017 - No Coaching
No coaching today – half term.
