Saturday 6th January - Beginner / newbie run - half day

Postby smccormick » Wed Nov 29, 2017 1:27 pm

Dear all,

My first run to lead out. A beginners / newbie run with the definition below.

Plan would be to start at Rykas Cake at 09:30am so start to mingle from 09:00am for coffee/tea etc.

It will be a short ride from Rykas upto Newlands Corner and back via a number of different lanes.

We will have frequent stops so if you want a progressive/fast run this is NOT for you.

Expected finish time will be around 1pm depending on how we get on, maybe earlier.

The GPX route will be posted before the run.

Please take the time to read the following:

Run events - http://www.surreytrf.org.uk/runs-events/

Run leading - http://www.surreytrf.org.uk/trf-run-leading/

Maximum of 6 people on the ride out.

1. Steven McCormick
2. David Hindley (dhindley)
3. Andy T (tobers)
4. Neil (Galaxy500)
5. Peter (Peter)
6. Marc (orange machine)

Reserve:

1.


Last updated: Thursday 4th January 2018.

To be clear as well, folks coming on the ride, you are in control of your own motorcycle, you ride your own ride, make sure enough distance between you and the rider in front, ride to TRF guidelines and common sense.

This is my first led ride out so be gentle, I am not the fastest nor the best rider but like to get out on the lanes and enjoy our countryside while having a coffee and cake where required/necessary. Likely photo opportunities will be taken as well so nice smiles please.

We will have a back marker rider and we will all use the drop off system.

At all junctions; check that the rider is behind you. If you cannot see him, wait for him. Do not turn off without the rider behind you seeing where you turned.

Seems awfully complicated but its all common sense.

DEFINITIONS:

Beginner Runs or Newbie Runs:

Does what it says on the tin, there aimed at riders that have not ridden on trails before, and a good way to meet fellow newbies and get an idea of the TRF, without worrying about pace, also a good way to learn about your new bike with the strange tyres on.
The run will generally but short with lots of rest stops, with a pace to suit the whole group.

Hi Steven,

Thats a big shame about tomorrow as I had rearranged my work so I could make it.

Unfortunately I know I am on call on Jan 6th so cant make the new date.
