Group Riding Talk – Eynsham Duathlon - Sunday Rides
Well done to everyone who raced at Chilly Duathlon last Sunday! It was a great turn out for the first race in the Club Championships with some great times and lots of PBs, plus a first in Super Vet from Angharad Lewis. If you haven’t already done so, remember you have two weeks after an event to enter your results and qualify for points in the Club Championship.
There were also some very speedy times and new PBs at Wokingham half so well done to all who raced there too.
Group Riding Talk
A reminder that the group riding talk takes place tomorrow, Saturday 24 February, 15:00-17:00 (but hopefully finished in time for the rugby), at the Richard Benson Hall, Cowley Road, OX4 1UR.
This is the perfect opportunity to ask any questions you have about riding in a group but have been afraid to ask. No question too silly!
This session is aimed at both novice and more experienced riders and it will cover various topics including –
• Date/time/meeting point
• Ride types
• Speed/pace of session
• Expectation of participants (equipment required/ experience and fitness level/etiquette)
• Communication during rides
• What happens when someone cannot keep up with the group (will someone wait/meeting points on route)

The weather is looking bright but very cold this weekend and conditions permitting we have two rides planned for this weekend; Intermediate with Nick Twist and Lee Merrett has offered to lead loops of the BARTT course, or if too icy to ride, lead a gentle plod (his words) around the BARRT run loop. Watch out on Facebook for updates, leaders may decide not to go out if it is too cold or icy, or may postpone the start time to allow temperatures to rise. If you do go out please ensure you have adequate clothing for the cold!
