Recommended Posts

Hi All

The Don Smith Memorial Ride 2019 is now live on BC

Sunday (3rd of March) sees the annual Don Smith Memorial Ride based at Lochbarr Services in Lochwinnoch

 

You will be able  to enter via the British Cycling website  HERE 

Please let me know ASAP if planning to enter as require to let caterers know numbers attending 

For those who are new to the event, there are three rides available to participate in:

Short Route - http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/368004877

Medium Route - http://www.mapmyride.com/gb/lochwinnoch-sct/jwcc-don-smith-45mile-ride-2012-route-72414462

Long Route - http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/1002950791

 

Entry fee is £10 for Adults and £7 for U16s

 

Event HQ, Lochbarr Services, Newton Of Barr, Lochwinnoch, Renfrewshire, PA12 4JB

 

Are you able to assist?

Route checking - Each of the routes requires to be checked against the Risk Assessment (which has been done) prior to the event, This would either be Friday, Saturday or early Sunday morning. Note that this can be broken into segments and spread around a number of volunteers rather than one person checking the whole route(s). We're generally looking for roadworks / closures / really obvious issues with quality of roads as riders are expected to follow the rules of the road and any official diversions in the case of roadworks, etc...

 

Sign On Desk - Smiling and taking people's money as they register for the event. Required from 8:30am until latest 10:30am (Note that this would not preclude your from riding). We just need a few club members willing to help before everyone sets off.

As ever looking for volunteers. If you can help post up or pm us... 

 

Cheers

 

Paul, David and Eric

Can one of the Wheelers Facebook admins set this up as an Event hosted by the Wheelers Facebook? and Strava Club as well?

Cheers

Sorting out my access hopefully within the next week or so.  Not sure who is responsible for them in the meantime but noticed the Strava club post earlier today so at least that's there :)

3rd March is my wife's birthday so I'm not going to make it out that day unfortunately.  Unless I buy her an amazing birthday present (which ain't going to happen) :lol:

Anyone free over this weekend to check the short and medium routes for hazards/diversions/other for the risk assessments? I will be checking the long route on Saturday. We will also need a couple of volunteers to drive the short and medium route the day before the ride 02/03/2019 to check for hazards/diversions/other. 

Cheers
