All Change: Winter Evening Rides

All Change: Winter Evening Rides

As the evenings draw in, and longer, warmer kit and lights are putting in appearances it is time to review the VC Melyd Winter Riding Schedule.

Through the summer we had seen a move to Wednesday evening social rides. These allowed those who wanted to compete in the TT events and also get in a social ride during the week the evening afterwards – and vice versa.

The move is now to two rides during the week:

TUESDAY NIGHT RIDE – 1830hrs Saints Gym, Meliden – social ride.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT RIDE – 1830hrs Waen Gate*, Waen – higher tempo for a loop of the vale.

Do check in with Facebook for specifics on a week by week basis… turnout obviously dependant on YOU and others just like you. Don’t be a fair weather rider!

This brings the week to the following shape:

Monday night – Ladies Track Session (no lights), Marsh Tracks, Rhyl.

Tuesday night Social Ride (lights), 1830hrs, Saints Gym, Meliden.

Wednesday nightHigher Tempo Ride (lights), 1830hrs, Waen Gate.

Thursdsay night – Junior track session, 1800-1900hrs, Marsh Tracks, Rhyl.

Saturday day – Ladies Ride (although mixed turn out) – with cafe stop;

Sunday day – Classic club ride all speeds welcome – with cafe stop;

Be considerate out there people – if you are not running mudguards yet, it may be time to start thinking about it!

“There is new ride planning from October, we will revert back to Tuesday night social ride from Saints @ 18.30. In addition, a Wednesday night ride is planned at a higher tempo (but not a chain gang). The Wednesday ride will meet at Waen Gate @ 18.30 and do a set loop of the Vale with various opt-outs available. A chain gang session is also envisaged at some point. Hopefully, this plan will encompass a wide cross-section of members and maintain the impetus of winter riding. I propose a reccy of vale loop tomorrow evening meeting at Waen Gate .” — Steve Sharp (Club President)

Note: *Waen Gate‘ is the car park next to the roundabout/sliproad that provides exit/access to the Eastboundound.
