|December 5, 2016 - Charity Ride review - |
|Well done and thank you to all the riders who rode yesterday's charity ride.|
Over £1000 raised, and counting. Full times/results and raffle winners are on the BSCC GoogleGroup now. Have a good Christmas break all - see you at one minute past midnight for January's opening segment of 2017!
|November 17, 2016 - YIAD ride 2016 - |
|On 4th December, in place of the normal club run, Bristol South will be doing its annual charity ride|
This year, we will be raising money for the MS Society.
We're encouraging all members to either:
1) take part in the ride. It'll only cost £5 (and this includes cake, coffee and a raffle ticket!)
2) make a donation – however modest - https://www.justgiving.com/companyteams/YIAD2016
3) raise sponsorship yourself – using your own JustGiving page linked to the above
The proposed route links each of the club's “Strava Monthly Challenge” segments into a single ride. We'll be tackling 11 of the hardest climbs in Bristol, 75+ miles of riding and 5,000+ feet of climbing, so it'll be a long, hard day even before you factor in December's weather. Hopefully our efforts will inspire some good sponsorship.
If the full route (https://ridewithgps.com/routes/17635779) sounds too tough, there will also be a shorter ~50 mile route on the day (more typical of a normal Sunday Club Run), as well as the monthly “Intro Ride” catering for newcomers/beginners. There should be something for everyone, so we're hoping for as many participants as possible.
Last year we raised over £4,000 – so let’s pull together as a club and try and beat that in 2016!
|November 16, 2016 - November segment update - |
|20 members have already ridden Luke Smith's November segment. Let's try and beat our record of 32?|
Its a toughie for sure... there's no easy way up Dundry
Phil Troughton has recorded an exceptional time at 8:01
Claire Greenfield is the fastest lady.
And Matthew Barber was first rider.
I'd like to take this opportunity to again publicise the BSCC Charity Ride on 4th December. Hope you'll come and take part come rain or shine.... if not, perhaps make a modest donation to the excellent cause?
