Safety First as Sunday Cycles Cancelled

posted 24 May 2011, 07:13 by Kevin Monaghan
It doesn't happen very often but the weather conditions on SUnday,with very strong and gusting winds made the Group Leaders convene and make the very hard call to cancel the spin.

Safety of all riders is paramount in the club and conditions made the possibility of a gusting side wind causing an accident more a probability than a possibility. Let's hope these days are few and far between.

Next Sunday the B's have 2 spins, 1 at 8.00am which will be a test for the new Tour of the Lakes route.  This club event takes place on 17th July, only 8 weeks away. While more or less the same for the first section of the route there are significant changes later on. This route is about 75 miles or so but we should have everyone back around 1pm. If that is not your cup of tea the usual 9am will also take place.

See you next week and safe cycling.
