Sunday Ride Information

​​

New


Last Sunday's Ride – 21 riders started off on a cool but sunny morning ride. The challenging Snowshill climb was conquered and then on towards Adams Farm. Unfortunately Sally took a fall and needed medical attention. Thanks to all who helped including Pauline and Pete doing an immediate assessment, Alex for looking after Sally until help arrived, Sue and Ollie for contacting Chris and Chris for coming from home in his car to help get Sally’s bike home. Thanks also to everyone else who offered their help in any way. Latest update is that no bones were broken but some road rash and bruising to be healed plus bike repair required.

Thursday Evening Ride - Alex has arranged a 20 mile ride for Thursday evening starting at 1830 from Newbold. Route details https://ridewithgps.com/routes/20581579
First Aid for Cyclist’s – Following the accident last weekend Pauline has investigated options for 1st aid courses.
St John Ambulance offer a FREE 'First aid for cyclists' App which can be downloaded via iTunes,  Android or from their website. I think that this is a quick and easy way to equip our members, if they so choose, with appropriate information, without having to arrange attendance somewhere in precious off-work periods. Just in case anyone in the first group on Sunday rides hasn't got my mobile number, you might find it useful to carry with you so here's a reminder: 07966 583263
 
Club Membership – Note from the Club Secretary - A reminder that we require new riders to join SCC after having 2 rides with us.
