Mayor of Bridgnorth pays us a visit

Saturday was a special day for us here at Bridgnorth Cycle Club as we entertained special visitors, The Mayor and Mayoress of Bridgnorth.

The event was to showcase a number of sports related clubs and businesses in Bridgnorth and was hosted at the recently opened Gym Club. Bridgnorth based Clee Cycles also came along to help BCC celebrate the growth of the cycle club and to promote cycling and fitness in the town.

Bridgnorth Cycle Club has seen a terrific year which began with our Sportive back in February where we had over 120 riders from across the county riding a tough route through the very cold but picturesque Shropshire countryside. There has been a steady stream of new riders joining the club with over 30 this year, from those just starting out in the sport to a group who regular take part in local sportive rides, the highlight of the season being Sunday’s Velo Birmingham.

Our mountain bike section is, as always, out there come rain or shine with regular Tuesday night rides and we were again proud to lend our support to the Midlands Cross Series race at the Dudmaston circuit.

We run regular rides throughout the year starting from Clee Cycles, keep an eye on our Facebook page or check back here for details.

 

Club rides this Sunday 24 September 

BCC Road Rides Sun 24th Sept 9:00am outside Clee Cycles
The Route:

48miles (21 Velo Stop, 30 Cafe) 2000ft

https://www.strava.com/routes/10640814

Rindleford, Badger, Whiston Cross, Burnhill Green, Chesterton, Hopstone, Claverly, Heathton, Halfpenny Green (Stop to Watch the Velo), Upper Aston, Burnhill Green, Albrighton (Coffee Stop), Cosford, Neachley, Ryton, Higford, Stockton then A442 Back.
Only one route this week as I suspect there will not be the numbers to run both an A and B ride.

This Ride will be at the pace of the slowest rider.
If we do get plenty turn out then then I suggest we ride the same route to the Cafe After that Group A could go through Kemberton and then drop down into Coalport and head back via Brosley.

For this I will need a Volunteer leader for the A or B.

Either way everyone is welcome to ride and will be looked after.

Weather at the moment looks okay

Tour of Britain
Riding out to see part of the final stage kindly being lead by David who is finalising route and final destination.

Depending on numbers both A & B rides may not run as I know there are quite a few folks not riding this Sunday and with the 3rd ride it may not leave very many at all! If there are enough people then we need a ride leader for A or B doesn’t matter which as I’ll take the other group. If there aren’t enough people to run both then we will follow the Group B route and the pace will be to the slowest rider this time!

 

Clubs rides 20 August

Group B ride for Sunday 20th August. Depart Clee Cycles at 9am as normal. A 43 mile ride, out via the A442 to Rindleford, then via Worfield to Bobbington, Kinver, Stourton, Swindon with coffee and cake at the Vineyard after 30 miles at around 11.30’ish. Back via Claverly and the Hobbins. There is a short off-road section – nothing too strenous, a canal towpath, but there is a road variation depending on conditions on the day. Average speed 13-14mph, suitable for anyone wanting a nice, even-paced ride with a few bumps along the way – all welcome. Steve and Jayne leading.

We enter the peak holiday season with several regular leaders away in the sun, and two of the girls taking part in the ‘Ride London’ Sportive – Good luck to you both. Six months ago the club were scraping around looking for one ride leader – for just one club run, let alone last weeks four ! A call for someone to lead the ‘A’ ride this weekend bought an almost instant response. Thank you Tony for stepping up.
A quick aside to let you all know this will be my final post on club rides. After 9 uninterrupted and sometimes exhausting months of coordinating, organizing, cajoling, posting and coffee sampling, its time to take a break and hand over to Paul Morris, the clubs Road Secretary. To all who have offered to lead, and to those who have supported the rides. Thank you.
