Saturday Ride - 13th April

Written by Ollie Jenkins on .

Saturday ride leaving at 9am from Maindy. 

On the basis that there is usually a route posted already by now, I figured folks aren't too keen due to weather.  However, I still plan to head out but instead of a mountain in 'the grim', I thought about a rolling route.

Llantrissant Rd - Royal Glam Hospital - Tonyrefail - Blackmill - Heol Y Cyw Common - Pencoed - St Mary Hill - Penllyn - Aberthin - Peterstone - Fairwater.  About 45 miles.

Suggested route:  http://goo.gl/maps/Xl1dQ

I have posted on FB for a show of hands!

'Not as Steady' (but not fast) ride - Sat 6th April

Written by Ollie Jenkins on .

Just thinking while some folks are still sunning themselves in Majorca, we might have some sunshine on Saturday, albeit a few degrees cooler I suspect.

Thought I would suggest a route for the morning, leaving Maindy at 9am as usual.  The wind is looking to be changeable so no real defined best direction.  As such thought out towards Usk might be good as its usually nice inthe sun, plus theres a cafe at the garden centre at about 2/3rds of the way round if folks fancy it.

Propose to head out up Rhiwbina Hill, round Caerphilly, Rudry, Basalleg, Caerleon, Usk, Catsash and back on the flats.  About 60 miles with the bulk of the climbs being in the first 20 miles and then pretty rolling and obviously flat at the end.

I have tried to plot it on Google maps so its public but its not as technical as some and it does not show elavation.   Whos up for it?

Also, if anyone can post in FB that would be great as I cant do that in work.

Winter League Final Standings

on .

Please see below for the final overall results table. Once again thank you to everyone who showed support for the winter league this year, taking part in what was sometimes very cold and tough conditions. The enthusiasm and motivation of all involved has made it all worth it this year. People seemed to enjoy the healthy competition with fellow club members and kept things interesting with lots of banter. Hope to see lots more of you  joining in next year.

Jon Airey has taken the club winter league championships cup for 2013 and very deservedly. We waited with baited breath this morning after, naturally, he left Fairwater pool first...like a greyhound's rabbit! Dan Miles, Matt and Stuart were all in hot pursuit to chase him down. Jon showed true grit and battled to stay ahead and emerged first across the line. Not bad for 8am on a Sunday morning.

In my new role as membership secretary, I'm updating the members' database. As such, please could anyone paying the concessionary rate show a current student card/proof of concession to me or Andrew Deans before 8th March. As a reminder, concession membership fees apply to senior citizens and full-time students. If this no longer applies to you, please speak to Lawrie or myself about amending your direct debit payment.


Thanks,

Elaine
