  11. Evening Folks, As many have probably seen, and many have probably heard my grumblings, the club is keen to get more bodies on the road!! To this end, I have designed a calender with all the Sundays until August on it. PURPOSE: To allow riders to plan the rides they can attend, have a user friendly clear view of rides and routes coming up and encourage members to ride together. A few things to note please. 1. The ride captain/ Road captian is not a hard and fast dictator style post, rather an experienced member who can keep tabs on the pace and any person who is falling out the back. It also provides a single point of contact for any new joiners/ inexperienced bunch riders. 2. I will not dictate to YOU, the bunch riders, where we go. If you want a route, tell me or if possible update the sheet. 3. The first Sunday, shall be utilised as a Big ride. Possibly an earlier start, something for a whole day. This can be moved with the general agreement of most members. This idea should allow a certain level of planning, allowing more riders out and about. For me certainly, I know what shift I am on until the end of time. Sooo, this means I can see the days off I want, begin the bargaining with the wife, and sort out child care. I have set out a variety of rides. These can be adjusted. I will post on a Tues / weds on the forum, as well as put out a WhatsApp notification. This is a trial idea and may continue with support from bunch members. ANY ideas for development, criticisms or praise are welcome. However, if you wholly disagree, please be polite and civil and message me directly. I will be happy to speak with anyone. Gang Forward!! JWCC Club Run Calender .xlsx pdf JWCC Club Run Calender .pdf
  12. Thanks Gents. Both noted, happy to try elsewhere. Variety is the spice of life! Eh? Although, I always thought the coffee was good. No plans for Largs till 29 March anyway.
  13. Another cracking main bunch ride. 7 bodies at 0940 departed the clubrooms. 3 more picked up on the journey. A well disciplined pace and riding by all. The usual stop at the BB, followed by that tail (ish) wind up the coast. 61 miles. Look out for a post regarding a ride calender coming soon! Cheers folks!
