Sign up for the Wednesday evening rides

Hi Wheelers

The seasons are changing 😩  The Autumnal and Winter chill is here and it’s time to wrestle on those mudguards and find your snoods 🍂❄️  Not looking forward to that? Well, there is no better way to get through the long winter than our Wednesday evening group rides 🤟

Those unfamiliar with the club. During the Autumn and Winter, the club runs group rides for all. We have different groups of up to 12 people going off at average speeds ranging from a no-drop social group (usually about 13-14mph) all the way to up to 22mph+ 🥵. 

The ride is open to all, whether you’re a club member or not. Use the sign-up form to let us know you’re coming along so we can organise the groups in advance – https://forms.gle/RQxndy8m2gLBk9zEA

We meet at Poole Park Cricket Pavilion at 630 pm with the groups setting off at 645 pm. The ride is roughly one hour on our classic sandbanks and Lilliput loop. However, due to road works the course will change from time to time.

Strava links 🚴‍♀️🚴🚴‍♀️

Classic Sandbanks and Lilliput – https://www.strava.com/routes/2756314164326302134

Alternative due to roadworks – https://www.strava.com/routes/3009396083815331356

Once you get back to the Cricket Pavilion, there will be Teas, Coffee, biscuits and a chance to chat with other cyclists about how cold it is ☕️🍪

We only ask for £1 from members and £2 for non-members to help cover the cost of hiring the pavilion and the biscuits

This is a great way to keep your fitness and morale up during winter. Get signed up to beat the winter blues. If you’re new to the club or have any questions, do message me or just say hello in the comments 🙂

If you’re new to riding, below is a handy video about how the groups rotate/do a double pace line (Vintage GCN video) – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1rXCcNG1GM

Looking forward to seeing everyone out through Winter!

Sign up for the PW TT – Last one of the season 😩

Course: P459 – Gallows Hill
Start time: **6:45 pm**, Sign-on: 1825 to 1855
Course link: https://www.strava.com/segments/17425486

🛎🛎🛎 Sign up for this week’s Wednesday TT here 👉 https://forms.gle/8KEGmc6gW8y7SYbS7

This week the TT season is drawing to a close, don’t miss out on the final racing night of the year! No guarantees of super fast night but there is always a chance of that PB!  It’ll be great to see everyone out for the season finale 🎆🎇

The weather is looking a bit off, but showers are incredibly hard to forecast. I’m confident we can keep the race on 🤞 We’ll only postpone if there is standing water on the course.

To race, no specialist kit is needed. You only need a bike! After that, it is the challenge of beating your PB for the season! You may also win a trophy along the way 🏆

🥇🥈🥉You can see the leagues here and see all of your results from the season:

Road Bike 👉 http://www.pwresults.pipeten.co.uk/CompsClubTenRoadBike.aspx
Overall 👉http://www.pwresults.pipeten.co.uk/CompsClubTen.aspx

The race is open to all PW members and non-members. It costs £5 for members and £6 for Non-Members.

For Junior riders, we ask for an optional £3 contribution to cover the club costs of paying the governing body CTT. We want to continue supporting our junior riders and don’t want the price to be a barrier, so we have made this an optional cost.

You can pay on the night, preferably by cash, but you can also pay by bank transfer or contactless card.
