Club News – December 11th

Quick comments,
Its going to be another wet or even cold Sat ride, we can evaluate the situation at the briefing, but in the meantime, if you can load the PLANB routes on the Winter Rides folder on OneDrive that would be helpful.
Cheers

Link and summary  of this weekends rides below but please take a moment to read the road guidelines. 

It’s officially cold outside, at this time of year we can all make a couple of changes that can keep ourselves and our ride companions a little safer and comfortable.

Clothing: Wear layers, it’s more effective and can more easily be removed if the temperature increases during the ride. Wear bright colours which ideally will be club kit, Bring a gilet or similar if there’s a possibility of rain.

Bikes: Your bike must be fitted with a good fully charged and working rear light. Mudguards are necessary at this time of year, a minimum of a rear mudguard, no ass savers please..offenders will be named and shamed !

Tyres: PLEASE use suitable heavier tyres for winter conditions and check your tyres for flints, glass etc before the ride.

ICE tags or Road ID: Please make sure you have a prominently displayed ID tag with emergency numbers in case of a road incident. Please also ensure your BC membership page is updated with an emergency contact.

Garmin route loading: Please make every effort to preload the route you intend to ride.
If you are like me always pressed for time to connect your device to your PC, then I recommend using DynamicWatch, an app that syncs to your Garmin and pulls in GPX files from remote sites like the MS share we use. Quick and easy.
