October - Sunday Social & Sunday Inters Rides plus updated ride time Poll

To clarify and expand on my previous winter rides post please see below the Sunday rides for the rest of the month


08 Oct, 09:00 - Sunday Social Inters Ride to Newlands Farm - Route No. BBC401

08 Oct, 09:30 - Sunday Social to Newlands Farm - Route No. BBC311


15 Oct, 09.30 - Sunday Social to Oakfield Farm - Route No. BBC211

Inters ride will happen every other week. Social ride will continue every week unless demand drops off over the depths of winter.


Finally as most of probably noticed my last poll about Sunday start times didn't work properly so I'll try again below.



Sunday Ride Start Time?

  • 0%Inters @ 9.00am & Social @ 9.30am

  • 0%Inters & Social @ 9.00am

  • 0%Inters & Social @ 9.30am

I think it's best to get a poll choice from all of the members as a whole, it's their ride so they should make the choice. All we have to do is organise and make sure we have cover with ride rep's for these rides. We have one rider doing the social ride this Sunday so I've switched from the intermediate ride for the social (arranged with Steve D) it's no problem as we have cover for the intermediate ride.

I suggest that the Sunday social and inters rides start at the same time to avoid any confusion. It's much simpler if there is one start time. It also gives the option of switching to a different ride and going as one group if numbers are very low for either of the rides.

Just wondering if the vote will be sent out by email as not all members look regularly at this app? Email would get a better response and more of a true representation....

I just wanted a quick poll to give me an idea if there was a preferred option. (Apparently not!)

To be honest I think the people reading this article are my target audience for this poll.

If there is to be a members survey this year I’ll certainly try to get this question included.

By starting both rides at the time we reduce the potential of both groups meeting up at the cafe at the same time. In addition, those who join the inters group at the beginning may want to go back with the social group on the return and vice versa. Just a thought.

My logic would be that the inters ride is going further to get to the cafe so should arrive at the same time as the Social ride.

But thing is its impossible to get different rides to arrive at the cafe at the same time, all it takes is a mechanical to delay one group.

I’ve also always thought you should be avoiding overwhelming the cafe but having all groups arrive at the same time.
