New "D" Group Formed

posted 24 Apr 2012, 03:22 by Kevin Monaghan
Following on from this successful Beginners Program the committee has decided to formally establish a leader lead D-Group on Saturday mornings. This new D-group will be the ideal next step for people who have just completed the Beginners Program. 

These spins will be leader lead (on a rotational basis) to help the group decide on routes and give further advice if required. Other club riders are welcome to join this group but the D-group leaders will be ensuring that the pace and distance remains as per D-group guidelines below. Please only cycle with this group if you are happy with the guide lines.

Key details on the new D-Group:
    Group Name:                    D-Group
    Meeting place:                 ORS Saturday mornings at 9:00am
    Average speed:                22-25km/h
    Typical spin distance:      50km to 60km
    Leader:                            Yes (on rota basis)
    Tea stop:                          Yes (sit down tea stop)
    Duration:                           April to late September (Will be reviewed in late September)
    First Spin:                         Saturday April 29th
At the moment there are currently members from C, B and A group meeting on a Saturday morning at 9:00am on ORS for a Spin. These spins are similar to the Wednesday evening spins in that they are not leader led spins but the spins adhere to club group cycling protocols. This new D-Group spin will run in conjunction with these spins. The new D-Group leader lead spins will run until late September when it will be reviewed for the winter.
