    Dear Rider

    JWCC held a virtual committee meeting last Monday You will not be surprised to know that COVID 19 was the major headline and will dominate decision making for sometime.

    We recognised that we needed to create a Covid-19 post on the committee and I am pleased to report that last month Eric Lymburn agreed to be co-opted on to the Committee as our Covid-19 representative. He has attended virtual Scottish Cycling meetings on Covid-19, pored over government guidance and was able to provide us with a detailed report last night. 

    Having considered and discussed Covid related matters the Committee are unanimously of the view that for the foreseeable future there can be NO JWCC sanctioned events but we will continue to monitor government and Scottish Cycling guidance.

    There will be NO sanctioned club runs until further notice. Before these can start we require volunteers to be “ride captains”. These will be responsible for preparing a “Covid register” containing contact details of participants and is responsible for ensuring that all riders comply with the guidelines. If any member wishes to be a ride captain then please contact me and I will facilitate a “ bunch run start up meeting” with Eric as he will oversee all club runs during Covid.

    The Jets will be meeting in groups under different rules for U17s.

    These are challenging times but hopefully we will have JWCC club runs soon but meantime please continue to enjoy riding your bike and STAY SAFE.

    Alan McLean

    Club Secretary

    Was out for a ride along the Georgetown today & no traffic lights. Road from railway bridge to finish nice & smooth too so race is on for Tuesday.
    as usual, ride course anytime on Tuesday and I’ll gather results from Strava.
    Could d be some real events on in August so this is ideal practice.

    Alarm was set for 7am, set off at 8am. I was booked on the 09:40 ferry. Joined by another 9 or maybe 11 people and bikes.
    Didn't have any breakfast, thought I would get a bacon roll and a coffee to take away in the wee cafe just beside the ferry in Brodick, it was shut!
    Got off the ferry in Brodick at 10:50 and headed south. Lovely smooth tarmac in Brodick.
    Carried on to next place, cafe shut! There was one opened in Whiting Bay but it was busy and couldn't be bothered waiting in the queue.
    It was Lochranza? (Wee ferry) before there was anywhere open that sold hot food.
    Quite enjoyed the big long climb and then the totally awesome decent after this 😁
    Rolled along into Brodick for 4pm in time to catch the 16:45 ferry back
     
    FYI you need to wear face covering in the ticket office and on ferry (in case anyone forgets)
    There is quite a lot of very rough tarmac, particularly going through towns/villages.
    There are no food or drinks available on ferry.

    Good job I checked before heading out.  I would have appreciated the chance to catch my breath at a red light though.

    2nd in this epic series sees the chrono people hit the Georgetown again.
    forecast not great next week so just stick to Tuesday for continuity.
    same as last time, ride the course anytime on Tuesday. I’ll post the results up from Strava. You are all using Strava?

    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 👍

    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...

    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.

    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.
