    Hoping to be there too on Weds if I can shift this Covid infection in time

    I don’t think anyone would need accreditation to participate in a group booking with a coach included. These are the best way to try out the track before you begin your accreditation and I would encourage everyone who is even just a little interested to give it a go if we get a booking.
    I will come along if I am in Scotland at the time.

    No here this week but keen for some sessions after I am back (Dec 8th) so if this becomes a regular thing count me in.

    Excellent – be good to get a regular group going through the winter. Always a very good way to train in the dry and good for your handling skills as well, particularly getting comfortable sitting as close as you can on a wheel.

    Excellent Colin!

    Callum. You need to enquire about the 4 part qualifying course that they run up there, the passing of which will allow you to ride on the open sessions. I will talk to you about it at the AGM if you are there.

    I will be the first to send my apologies, in Glasgow for a gig that night so will not be able to attend.

    What is the format for this league? Is it just turn up and have a go or is there more to it? May yet dust off the TT bike and have a go.

    I brought up a club clothing as the ideal option to provide the best way of sharing excess club funds between members in the zoom AGM we had in 2020 (?). I still believe this is the fairest way and supports members purchasing expensive club clothing and advertising the club each time they wear it out riding.

    I also like the idea of a charitable donation if we can agree on a cause. Probably something local makes sense but for something I have supported and very much needed at the moment this a great cause https://www.trusselltrust.org (should not be necessary in a civilised society etc but when you have a government who exist to please the top 1% of the richest and, despite what they say, do not really care about anyone else (except in the short term lead up to an election) then their work is vital). Soapbox put away again…..

    Was thinking of giving this one a go on May 1st – https://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/race-details/23021

    Still trying to decide if I can be bothered or whether it is time to sell the TT bike. Anyone else thinking of going? A good sized FWCC entry may persuade me to give it another go.

    The time doesn’t suit me for now Gordon, still using Zwift though and will be through the winter. A wet Saturday morning is more likely to find me in attendance.

    Gordon – the following Sunday would work better for me, cannot commit to this coming Sunday at the moment. Hope we can agree on a date to suit everyone for this month. I will partner Sean on his slow winter bike, seems like a fair pairing to me!

    Sean – are you working your way through Del’s bike collection or is that one yours? 🙂
