    Georgetown League

    The Georgetown League is now open for entries online, check out the Facebook page for every detail you need. This year we are trying out using members times from the Georgetown League towards our own Chocolate series to hopefully have more people to include. I am aware that this does conflict with the Wednesday night social runs, but that means there is now no reason not to get out on your bike. Once you have done your run please remember to post up your time here on the Bunch, there will be a new thread for each week which should make finding the times easier. Please not that rear lights are compulsory for this event. https://www.facebook.com/GeorgetownLeague/

    Will probably miss the first couple but looking forward to getting back to it! Also front lights are needed too.

    Should give them a go Billy - they are usually pretty steady rides rather than easy recovery pace and while a bit shorter it's not by much. Also when things get a bit hotter then the longer Sunday rides will likely return. I agree though that everything being on whatsapp or a facebook group is a bit of a problem - particularly for new members (and potential new members) who aren't a member of the group yet. Before i joined the club i was able to read all the threads on the forum and see things were pretty active and it was one of the reasons i joined over other local clubs.

    Many thanks and congratulations to all who turned out today. Turned out to be quite a challenging circuit, especially with the wind. We had 4 groups, but pretty soon there was a natural order established 😀with riders all around the course in wee groups. Big congratulations to the scratch group who flew by everyone. Thanks also to our resident paparazzo- Iain McTavish - for some excellent photos. All in all I think that was quite good. Just need better legs 😅 I propose we stick to this circuit for the next one in 2 weeks time. I’ll have a rethink about the time gaps- especially to the scratch group 😀. Cheers

    Final reminder about the APR training ride tomorrow. 9.30 at the clubrooms, heading down the track to Howood (if anyone wants to meet on the way). The more riders we get better we can fine-tune the composition of the groups so that everyone gets a ride with people of similar ability, which should mean a nice workout. Distance is somewhere between 23 and 28 miles, depending on what folks are up for. Time gaps will be generous to give all groups a sporting chance. If any of you feel the distance is not enough, then the option is to do as the pros do and do an extra hour or more😅 Hope to see some of you tomorrow. Cheers

    Hi there, I hope that email finds you and your members well. Whilst we would usually only send out an update email once a month, there are a few updates that are time sensitive so I would appreciate your support in passing these onto your members where appropriate. Covid-19 Guidance Update With the removal of the legal mandate on the wearing of face coverings from today, there are now no measures in place which restrict the activity that your club can deliver. We’d like to thank you all, particularly those within your club that stepped forward to fulfil the Covid-19 Coordinator role for all their time over the past few years in supporting the safe delivery of activity. British Cycling Coach Education/Development consultation British Cycling are embarking upon a roadshow as they review their coaching framework. There is an in person workshop this Thursday eveningin Glasgow (see details via the web link below), and there are also a number of virtual opportunities for those that can't make it to an in-person session. https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/coaching/article/20220404-Revolutionising-our-Coaching-Offer-0?fbclid=IwAR283P58fFcxDCeLwAQpGz6our8lZEDQOKdwYyv8CCKFZPr47P1dA7nbRus Club Confined Time Trials – Policy Update We are delighted to advise you of some very positive changes that will be implemented from this year onwards. Thanks to your valued feedback, we have had very constructive discussions with British Cycling on some progressive steps we can take to enhance the club confined time trial offering in Scotland. Second claim club members will now be permitted to ride club confined time trials and the maximum number of participants per event has been increased to 80. This we feel will increase the accessibility and engagement with club confined time trials for all who wish to participate. British Cycling have agreed to trial these changes for 12 months on the basis that the guidance on risk assessing and running club confined time trials is implemented. The benefits of this being to help clubs mitigate risk and also demonstrate to the British Cycling insurers, in the event that a claim is made, that we have in place published and accessible guidance available to clubs. Please find the updated Club Confined Time Trial policy here - which includes links to the risk assessment guidance and risk assessment template. The process for registering club confined time trials are also outlined in the above document, with details on the associated costs if applicable. If you have any questions on this or anything in relation to the new changes, please do not hesitate to contact [email protected] and we will be happy to help.
