Last Autumn we started club rides on Sundays, meeting at Geoffrey Butler
Cycles in Croydon at 8.30am to go out into Surrey for 2-3 hours. Coach
Paul Mill from Elite Cycling (http://www.elitecycling.co.uk/) kindly agreed to
lead us out on the first Sunday of each month, with other club members
taking on the others. Paul has taught us safe group riding, different
formations, given individual advice and pushed, cajoled, picked up whenever
needed. We're looking forward to his track training session coming up soon...
Other rides have been great too, with Box Hill becoming a clear favourite.
Different leaders has meant lots of alternative routes, so we haven't got
stuck in the 'it's always the same ride' rut. Tagging along on the London
to Brighton classic car rally was particularly memorable whilst Terry Dealy's
antique automobile waved us off on Remembrance Sunday. And we've been
out every weekend since we started! Dave Haggart and Peter Jenn win the
participation prize so far, although Peter is just about to go on his spring
travels and will be sorely missed. Several new members have joined us on
these rides - with friendly chats and cappuccinos! Watch out for tweet
updates and photos... Or better still, come along.
