WKRC

New Adventures – Welcome to the Newbies

August 3, 2014

Sunday 3rd August

This mornings club run attracted a handful of new riders, so a massive West Kent RC welcome goes to

Sonya, Darren, Richard and Maurice

 It was decided early on to split the run into two with separate destinations, allowing us to see what the abilities of the “newbies” was – apologies to those of you who are “newbies” and dislike the term!

Alex took the new group and was assisted by Austin “Tail end Charlie” Henderson, Steve “Tail end Charlie 2” R, Steve H, Carl and for a part of the way Dave.

The route led us out through Hawley to School Lane and up to the back of Brands Hatch – some I’m sure won’t like me already for that!

From there we descended down to the Fawkham Road and through to Longfield and then headed out through Betsham and along the path to Cyclopark for the almost famous sausage and egg sandwich.

The pace was suitably controlled with a couple of quick bits to keep everyone on their toes, so well done to those that kept up at over 30mph along Fawkham Road 🙂

Suitably refreshed we headed back along the cycle route at the side of the A2 in to Dartford, where we split up to head home.

For those regulars that helped out today, my thanks. I can’t do it all on my own and every bit of assistance is really appreciated.

To the new crew – WELL DONE – for putting up with me.

Our run today was 28miles with 1300ft of climbing.

You all managed exceptionally well, and I hope that you enjoyed it enough to come back for more punishment on another club run.

(Suggested destination for next weeks “Newbie Run” (sorry) is Westerham via the Pilgrims Way)

 

Safe Riding

Alex
