The P.I.G. - Ride #4 Saturday 16th July 09:30hrs

Post by Chris Heppell » Tue Jul 12, 2016 9:07 pm

We've had a slight delay in hosting P.I.G. rides as we've lost our leader Quentin to a knee problem for a while. Quentin's rides were of great benefit to those of us who took part, to the extent that we are going to have a go at running a "Quentin Style" ride complete with whistle this coming Saturday. The plan is to try and run a few more rides to keep the group going until Quentin is recovered and able to get us organised again.

Please message me, or ring or txt, if you are interested in joining, it is well worth getting in touch if you've not done one before. I think we have around 6 riders from previous rides planning to attend this Saturday and the forecast looks great. The ride will be of the usual distance, between 50-55 miles, and we will be riding in a chaingang with a whistle to indicate changes.

Please see Quentin's original post for details of the ride format and expectations. See http://www.tynevags.org.uk/forum/viewto ... 01#p10601/.

I'll be posting route and meeting place later in the week, both here on the forum and on the facebook P.I.G. group page.
Meeting will be probably be 09:15 in time to start the ride at 09:30.
Meeting location will be somewhere near the normal circuit, probably around Ashington area.

Cheers Chris

Hi

Some snaps taken down at The Woodhorn Cyclists Cafe before and after this morning's P.I.G. ride. A good time was had by all, professional outfit!
