Well-being Ride

Well-being RideDec 5, 10:00amThe Twisted Spoon in Upton Snodsbury WR7 4NWThis week’s well-being ride will start from The Twisted Spoon in Upton Snodsbury. It’s a new route of just under 20 miles and will take us through Himbleton, Inkberrow, Flyford Flavell and Naunton Beauchamp. Meet us in the car park at 9.45 am for a 10 am start. We have been asked to park in the right hand corner of the car park. We will be riding at a pace of 9-12 mph and absolutely no one will be left behind. We will all meet back at the pub for coffee and cake-the selection on offer looks fab!

Please note there is only one route this week due to the availability of ride leaders. If you would like to join us it would be really helpful if you could tick ‘going’. See you on Sunday!

I see they have some leeway in the amount of time this will take: "Maximum duration: 18 months. Anticipated duration: 3 days Commencing: 14 December 2021" So we think it will be 3 days, but it could be a year and a half!

Advice please you lovely lot.
I need a front and back light for my road bike
Rechargeable, bright and budget of around £60.
Thanks 😊

Comment on Facebook

Do you want it to be seen or to illuminate a dark lane?

Angie Preece I was looking for a front light to see by, after going on a night ride with Dave Walker. After some research, I bought this: www.wiggle.co.uk/lezyne-macro-drive-1300xl-front-light?utm_source=order-placed-sg01-gb&utm_medium... It may be a bit OTT for your needs. I have several back lights, often as parts of 'sets' all of which, I think, are adequate for the 'be seen' function, so I've never felt the need to pay a lot for these (Dave Walker's has permanently burnt my retina from following him😵). This review might help: www.bikeradar.com/advice/buyers-guides/best-bike-lights-for-road-cycling/

Got my cat eye from halfords.com 400 lumens

Bontrager ion 200/flare rt lights are superb and can be linked up to your cycle computer so that it controls the pattern automatically. Compact enough to fit in your pocket and recharge from USB. It even turns the rear light into a brake light when you are slowing down! I usually only use them as day lights but got caught out in the dark a couple of times and the front is bright enough to see in unlit lanes in the middle of the countryside 👍 they claim the rear light is visible at large distances. www.dcrainmaker.com/2018/07/bontrager-flare-rt-ion-200-rt-connected-bike-lights-in-depth-review.html

Sorry to hear Gez 🙁 warning to others don't give Facebook sellers money up front, also check their Facebook profile if you can and look for tell tale signs like photos all uploaded on same day etc. Did you pay via PayPal? Maybe you can open a case?

9 of us attended the Club's first aid course last Monday. By just 6 days later 3 of us had used it! At Sunday's CX event I was first at a bad head injury warranting a call for the ambulance. It was a shock when they said it would take 6 hours (as the casualty was conscious it was deprioritised). It was late pm amd getting cold fast. We were away from the road and now forced to act. I'm hoping that by writing this Club riders and first aiders will be a little more prepared for this situation than I was. The good news is that once at the hospital the casualty was seen quickly and discharged. Clearly lots to be learnt from all this - my tip is that a foil blanket buys time. ... See MoreSee Less

Gosh Paul, a shock as well I expect having to put into practice first aid skills. You never know when they will be needed. Well done.

Difficult to carry everything, but this is a nice kit that I carry when out on the bike and main kit reserved for events where I am static.

Good point Paul. Even if you have a mechanical it can be dodgy if the temp is around 2 and you are hot from riding - you cool down fast so it’s good to have an something to cover yourself in all sorts of cold situations

Seven people and three Ride Leaders took part in the Well-being ride from Upton Marina this morning. We set off in 3 separate groups and rode 21 miles through Welland, Pendock, Corse Lawn and Longdon. It was a pretty cold morning but thankfully we had glorious sunshine for the entire ride. Andrew lead the faster group but was mysteriously lagging behind at one stage. The new handbag on the front of his bike is obviously affecting his performance! Lucy lead the the ten mile route-or so she said. I didn’t see her leave this morning and returned to find her sitting rather too comfortably in the Marina café stuffing her face. Thankyou to everyone who joined us today. Thanks Angie and Pippa-you were great company! See you all in two weeks! ... See MoreSee Less

Thanks for organising today Jackie, these are great routes with some amazing views, I think we’ll be using them again. There’s nothing wrong with my “handbag” my front mech was irritating me 🙄😹. Thanks to Clinton and Kieth for showing me some bits of wherever we went that I didn’t know existed. TTFN 😸😊

Thank you Jackie for organising ride today

So glad you had a fab ride on some new routes. The weather looked ideal for cycling cold I know but you would’ve warmed up quite quickly! Hopefully, back on my bike next weekend, can’t wait🚴‍♀️🚵🏼‍♂️🚴‍♂️

Oi, cheeky!!!! 😄 Thanks for organising and the fab new routes.

Well done Pippa 2 rides in 2 days especially after those hills yesterday! 🚲👏

2021 WSJCC Annual Dinner and Awards Ceremony. A good turnout of approx. 50 enjoyed a calm, friendly and interesting night. Celebrating a successful year (forget about 2020) and some great results from members young old and pretty damn quick. Gordon Chamberlain officially presented as Honorary Club President. Excellent venue in the Severn Suite at New Road Cricket Ground, Worcestershire CCC. Tom Ward was invited as a special guest, he spoke extensively and excitedly about his experiences starting as a WSJCC 11 year old to mixing with and beating world class cyclists on the track and in TT races, a stint at the London 6 series and a near attempt at the World Team Pursuit record in Bolivia (scuppered by Covid). His September 2021 time of 17m58s for 10 miles set on the East Anglian VTTA E2/10 Course, matching Sir Brad's best time in 2015. Tom is now also developing Aero products and wheels to help everyone get quicker on their bikes. Very inspirational. Thanks to Rikky Hughes, Peter Cockcroft, Martin Staines, Andrea Turner and Paul Sobczyk for the organising and presentations. Special congratulations to Clinton Haywood for being voted for by club members to be awarded the Alec Davies Cup for outstanding contribution to the club over many years. Fill in the gaps please for the trophy winners I don't recognise. ... See MoreSee Less

Not forgetting big thanks to Andrea for the chocolate brownies. Delicious

Andrea chocolate brownies were great 😊

Well done to all the trophy winners 🏆🥇🏆👏👏. Looks like a great night, sorry we couldn’t be there 🤷🏻‍♂️🙄.

Thanks Rikky for organising and deciding on a new venue. It was a really nice chatty occasion. I must also thank the Club for my award of the Dave Jennings cx trophy - it means a lot to me cos it was Dave that supported me with getting the kiddies stuff going and he never gave up on politely suggesting I get them into Cyclo Cross!

Many thanks Rikky Hughes for organising, Andrea Turner for getting all the trophies sorted (huge job!), Peter Cockcroft for the speech and Martin Staines for the steering Tom so expertly. Great night. I had to rush off for the last train back to Malvern, only to find it cancelled: stupid google... your dead to me now. I'm going back to the yellow pages.

oops, I forgot to add: great photos, as ever Gez Hoare

Fabulous weather for cycling today. Bit cold to start with but we soon warmed up. 6 turned up including a policeman man from the “close pass” unit. It didn’t take long before he had some footage to send in. Droitwich road in fact . We turned off for Hindlip through to smite then Himbledon then Bradley Green where the policeman turned for home but fingers crossed he’ll join us again soon. We rode past broad acres through to Tardebigge then Rowney green then a coffee stop at Morso in Alvechurch.
Rereashed we rode trough pretty autumn lanes, burcot,pikes pool,walnut lane and on to stoke prior, wychbold then home. No punctures fortunately. Great company.Thanks all.
