Ride Leader Ride 1
If you have your name down for ride leader this year please attend this session (there will be one more next Saturday if you are unable to attend this week) with Alan, Jeff and Rochelle who will run through how the 35km Beginners Bunch ride should run.
The Ride

 This is not a coaching session, rather a ‘everyone is on the same page’ session so expect a few minute briefing before the ride and quick discussion at each stop.  Questions are welcome and bring along your previous experience on leading rides so we can address any issues experienced before.
Brendon is putting together a preliminary roster which will be posted online soon and explained at the Ride Leader rides.

Sunday

Briefing at 7.20am and leaving the store at 7.30am.

Long Ride

In the spirit of trying something new and to take advantage of (hopefully) everyone heading out of Auckland Brendon has put together a scenic Auckland route for this Sunday.    Please study the map before you leave or print a copy for your pocket.   Should be loads of fun!

For anyone who is short on time or looking for slightly less distance there will still be some doing the Rec Ride 54km to be back at the shop by 10am.

Happy New Year and Welcome back to your weekend rides.

New Road Captain, Brendon Smith is getting to grips with the job at the moment and is organising a ride leader roster. If you are keen to help out with 35km rides then please contact Alan- deptofcycling@gmail.com or Brendon – road@deptofcycling.com.

We will also hold a ‘Ride Leader’ ride in a couple of weeks to run through the course to be taken and things we should be doing / watching out for as ride leaders.  A roster will then be posted and with enough leaders we should only have to take a ride one Saturday every 2 months.

Please get your names down to help out the newbies, we were all there once!
