Ride Leaders Wanted

The Ride Calendar is looking bare, mainly on account me being away and letting it drift.
Please volunteer to lead a ride, the first 3 Sundays in May in particular are available.
I am happy to consult on possible routes and GPS files etc t0 put a ride together.

Ride Leaders Still Wanted

The Branch does a great job of providing rides for members on a very regular basis
This can only happen if a few people beyond the "Usual Suspects" volunteer from time to time.
It may seem it, but it isn't really that daunting providing you're a confident experienced rider.
My suggestion:

  • Think up a couple of 80 km (or so) legs
  • Actually ride those legs with a friend to ensure it works safely 

Trying to do too much at once can become a trap.  Glitches can happen and we've all made errors but we're all mature enough to adapt and cope
Then contact the ride coordinator.

Too True

Hi John
You are one of the Branch's best and most prolific ride leaders - keep up the good work (and the great suggestions).  Never been on one of your rides I didn't really enjoy!!  But even you had to start somewhere...

I'm sure there are a host of members that, with your help, can lead great rides.  Sadly my Ulysses outings are so few these days, I can't help, but there's lots of quality in the wings.... (and I'm happy to help with pics and videos when I'm attending...)
Cheers

Ride Leaders Still Wanted

Sorry to nag but Mike's request is still relevant.
Subject to personal circumstances, I do have some plans bubbling for  rides in July, August and September respectively  but it really helps if regular attendees kick in occasionally enlightened
