    Corona virus update

    Aaaaand the good news is that the committee is considering a reduced programme of confined events starting from mid July, subject to guidance from SC/BC. The current view from that level is that club events won't be sanctioned until August. So, we can't say for certain right now when, or even if, a programme will take place, but the general principle will be that we will attempt to run the league of 10, the chocolate series, and the hilly TT series in a reduced format. Turn up, race go home. No holders. Results will be published when the timekeeper uploads them. Further updates to follow when more info becomes available.

    Strava Georgetown TT 30/06/2020

    Hi all, following on from Mr Maclean’s post, I’ll take this on for next couple of weeks or until racing starts back. First event, next Tuesday. Alan has suggested a 3 hour window. So let’s go for 6pm to 9pm? Or do you want an all day event? For those that don’t know, the course starts just after house on left hand side at start of Georgetown Rd & continues to roundabout at Crosslee. Back in to finish a few yards before the start. You will be riding by yourself with no timekeeper or pusher off. Please ride responsibly and if you bump into a club member please stay socially distant. If a rider catches you please don’t sit on their wheel. As for collating results? Follow me on Strava & I’ll follow you back. Also, post your times here. I may change the night, week to week, depending on weather. No fun in riding in rain & wind. open to constructive suggestions 🤔

    Strava Georgetown TT 30/06/2020

    Soooo only 3 JWCC rode the course on Strava today: Mr McTavish 15:42 (whit????) Gerrard 18:43 Now for the controversial bit.... I rode the route and Strava has logged me for all the segments within the route but not the route itself. Dunno what’s going on there. I stopped my Garmin at 17:15-after the finish but Strava has a segment that is 0.1 of a mile shorter than the full route which timed me at 17:16. It’s not an official event so no big deal although both times are PB for me so pleased, especially as it’s my first go of the year. maybe members have ridden who don’t use Strava. If so, post your time up if you feel like it. More fun next week. Will play it by either to see what the weather is doing before picking a night edit: I know what happened with strava. My garmin kept displaying the course during my warm up meaning I couldn’t see my mph hr etc so I disabled the segment. Must mean it doesn’t record it 👍

    well done for stepping up to organise 👍 I think i'd prefer all day rather than between 6 and 9...gives a bigger window of opportunity to ride plus it will make it easier to see the results - you'll be able to look at the 'today' tab on the strava segment - this doesn't show what time people rode the segment at just that they did so that day.

    This we all understand and appreciate the clarity about this. My thoughts were to do some sort of segment challenge using the TT routes, which would easily fall within guidelines. My suspicion is that any subsequent posting/boasting/moaning about times on the club forum would divide opinion about club endorsement and to ensure club compliance with current guidelines it would be simpler to not have us posting. It would appear, for the sake of a couple more weeks, that waiting for day we resume some sort of club activity is the sensible way forward. May I propose that we should consider reversing the hill climb route if we get to use it this year, hillclimbing just takes much more effort these days for some reason...

    Comment on this evenings session. Having no sticky does make it difficult to balance the variances in power across the group. Usual bunch issues of too fast vs just right vs not fast enough were evident enough. It happens. If no sticky I’d suggest Iain makes the rule for the session and every one looks(as best they can) to the -/+ times between riders to keep the group together. If more than -0.10 off the front then ease up, if Rider more than +0.20 off the back then group ease up with provisio dropped rider put in an effort to catch on or drop out a lap if possible on lap route. If you want to do your own thing text and do it Fi, I don’t believe anyone was intentionally being horrible. It’s pants getting shelled. The stronger guys dumped me on the last lap. I couldn’t get on and watched the gap grow til I burst. That’s bike riding. Just my view and shouldn’t be seen as anything else. M

    Good effort guys, I am sure a few more Wheelers could pop out for a shot next week.

    Not quite. It's complicated a bit as the JWCC course is slightly different to the one used for the CTT and Georgetown cup

    Well done on the PB! It might be to do with garmin autostart (if the TT is a new ride with the start of the ride the start of the TT) - when you start rolling it takes a second or two to register so can miss the start of the segment. I just leave my garmin on for the warm up and rolling about and then hit the lap button at the start. (then have a screen on the garmin to show lap power and lap time) Found it quite a tough night, wind made for a slow first leg. The new surface up the hill to the roundabout is an improvement though!

    The guidance is that ALL sanctioned club activities remain suspended. I interpret that as we can't organise any real events on the roads through the club. Of course, there is no reason why a group of individuals who have a common interest can't organise something amongst themselves, but as a club, we cannot be seen to support that. Yet.

    Tuesday 22 June - 6pm Zwift ride

    Ah, virtual riding. Iain and Richie would almost certainly give a doing outside, but there is a certain comfort in knowing that I can fall off the turbo at the end, rather than cycle several miles uphill to get home from the clubrooms. Daryl and Alan T were right on my shoulder for most of the climb. Great session guys, thanks for the company. Going for a kip!

    Wednesday 10th June 6pm Zwift ride

    Agreed G IRL nobody does get left behind and as you said we all got a ride. I don’t think there was anything wrong about having the sprints, I enjoyed it and it served to show where I’m at in comparison to some bunch regulars given my extended time away from the road. so from a personal point of view - all good - I’m still pants 😕 Fi, I wouldn’t worry about the guys who may have dropped off to offer a tow back. In my experience we’ve all been there, both offering and getting that tow. 🥵 All part and parcel. Viva la sticky, non?

    Since the last update there has been an issue with the sticky draft. It's working for some in the group but not working for everyone, and for those that it isn't working for they are not getting the draft from the group no matter what watts they are doing. If this is fixed before Wednesday then sticky draft is on, if not i'll turn it off and the ride will be ridden at a 'steady' pace with a sprint every lap followed by a regroup. Course is Richmond fan flats

    Yeah it was hard to keep together. My idea for the sprints was so everyone was getting something out of the ride but that probably just exacerbated the problem as it was creating a gap each lap. The good news is there is a message on the support forum saying the bug has been found and the update will come in the next few days.
