Juniors & Coaching
Saturday 17th November 2018 - BMCC Juniors 1, BMCC Youth Coaching
Coached by: Paul A. and Matt G.

Time: 09.50-11-30 am.

Session theme: Bring your fast legs and plenty of energy.

Weather permitting we will not be at the school but using the Airfield at Bicester Heritage. We will start at 10 as usual, I would advise not riding there if possible as you will have to travel along Skimmingdish Lane. If you do ride be very careful especially when turning into the airfield. Email with directions etc will go out later this week. Bring your fast legs and bike.

Please come suitably dressed for the weather conditions, with helmet, gloves, drink and a road worthy bicycle. If the session is going to be cancelled due to poor weather, we will send out an email early Saturday morning.

 

What to do in the event of ride cancellations

If you plan to take part in a ride that has removed from the calendar there are three options for you to ride with the club:

  • Come to the Leisure Centre and drop down to the next ride in the calendar (unless you were planning to ride the D ride),
    e.g. A+ => A, B => C, etc… If you drop down a ride, then you should ride at the slower pace of that ride so as not to disrupt the pace of the ride you are joining. Other members are joining rides which have leaders, are expecting to ride at the pace they are comfortable with and it is unreasonable for them to have to change their plans
  • You can step-up to the next ride in the calendar (unless you were planning to ride the A+ ride), e.g. from C => B, B => A, etc… In this case you should attempt to ride at the pace of the ride you are stepping up to – again so as not to disrupt the pace of the ride you are joining. As above, it is unreasonable to expect people expecting to ride at a certain pace to change their plans and you should be prepared to drop off the ride if you cannot hold the pace of the ride you are stepping up to.
  • Arrive at the Leisure Centre with a route for the pace you would like to ride and lead the ride. We will have more leaders and rides and everyone will be able to ride at a pace with which they are comfortable.

* – if someone steps forward to lead in the interim I will update the calendar but may not get the time to update the website. Please keep an eye on the calendar on website homepage for updates.
