Weekly Update 18 February 2022

Hi Everyone

Definitely the day for indoor activities as I see the hail outside, hope everyone is safe and avoiding travel disruptions and falling trees.

The disruptive weather is hopefully short-lived, and so full set of training (and racing!) is set to go ahead this weekend with an informal Shotover xc run on Saturday 9am at Horspath Driftway Costa (thanks Stuart for coordinating); Sunday rides and the Chilly duathlon all going ahead. Remember folks, there’s no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing!

Thanks again for the good use of our swim slots. The committee and coaches totally understand when plans sometimes have to change at short notice, especially when there are red weather warnings around, like today. But I’m glad that cancellations are broadcast on the FB page and other members are able to step in.

Having considered the timing and still lack of clarity from the TV police on road use for racing, we have reluctantly decided to postpone the Radley tri to later on in the year; we will keep everyone posted well in advance.

Finally a request from Dan that we still need a volunteer for the final cross-country race on 6 March. This is a fun and rewarding way for Club members (or significant others) to give something back and get to see the action up close. Any questions please just post via FB or message me as per my email below.

Have a great week everyone – almost March now and spring and longer days are coming soon!

Any questions, as ever just ping me.
