Hi all, most sports are making drastic changes. Ours is no different. Zwift will be our new reality for the time being.

Please visit the club website for our current offering. This should get most of you started. I will keep adding to it, as I get time:

The calendar has not been fully updated yet, but we plan to offer two sessions on Tueday, Thursday and Sundays.

I will make more posts in the coming days.

First 20 laps will be easy. Don't worry if you're running late. Just join the group when you can. Next weeks time may vary. We need to see how long they take before starting a little later next week. Same deal as Tuesday's 50 lapper; Arrive, ride, go home. Nothing social in today's climate.

👍. See you there.

For those coming to this weeks session please note self sufficiency is the key. Arrive with your road bike ready to use including your tyres pumped etc. We won’t be having kit bags on the stairs they need to stay with your car. Parents you need to bring what you need with you. No sharing pumps etc. Present yourselves ready to train, train and then leave the venue. If you have kids of different strengths that’s fine, they just need to wait in their own car with your supervision once there part of the session is over.
Parents please lead by example with social distancing and park cars with space between to reduce interactions.

Training Update - Tuesdays and Thursdays are on.

We have received medical advice that is appropriate to continue offering training opportunities on Tuesday and Thursday nights, with a number of important changes. For example, we will be splitting our training groups (based on age/speed) and further reducing any close physical contact.

To help us determine the viability of continuing with our training over the coming weeks, please indicate your level of interest in continuing to train and your acceptance of the revised operating procedures.

As we indicated on Sunday morning, we all have a role to play in reducing the risk of transmission of the virus, especially to those in our community who are at higher risk - over aged 60, or with other health problems. We also acknowledge how important exercise is, and particular riding, for maintaining good physical and mental health.

You may be wondering how is training different to Sunday racing, which is temporarily cancelled?

A key hallmark of our Sunday racing is the social nature of our events, comprising a larger group of kids and adults, in close proximity, often standing around in groups, talking. We really love that aspect of the club, however in the current environment that level of close contact is problematic. Additionally, we need to hold riders at the start of the time trial event.

Conversely, our revised training procedures involves smaller groups of people, will seek to limit any physical contact between riders and coaches, and discourages chatting. In essence, we'll be asking riders to get on the track, do their laps fairly continuously, and then go home.

Specifically, we're proposing the following changes

Tuesday nights
Only for smaller kids and slower riders
As Track season has concluded, we will now ride on road bikes or mountain bikes.

Riding will involve fairly continuous laps, to help build up endurance. As such, there will be little time for talking and most of the session will be spent on the track.

Thursday nights
Only for faster kids and adults
We are proposing a '100 lapper', whereby riders will ride continuously for as long as they can, with the aim of increasing the number of laps they can complete each week. We'll be riding on road bikes.

The aim of this training is for riders to develop their endurance. A smaller group may form on the track, with riders at different speeds. Given the non-stop nature of it riders will need to carry a water bottle on their bike. We'll practice 'drinking and riding', an important skill, however riders should also come to training well hydrated.

If you are unsure which group you fall into, please speak to Gay.

Key changes on the night
We ask that parents review these new operating procedures and be responsible for ensuring that you and your child/children abide by them.

-Don't attend training if you are feeling sick, have any COVID-19 symptoms (fever, coughing, sore throat, fatigue and shortness of breath) or have been exposed to anyone who may be infected.
-Don't attend training if you have been overseas in the past 14 days.
-Handwashing before and after training.
-No sharing of food or drink.
-No standing or sitting around chatting.
-No handshaking or hugging (sorry)
-Try and keep 1.5m distance with others (although we accept that is difficult once on the track).
-Once you are finished for the night, get straight in the car and go home.

Given how fluid the whole situation is, we will continue to review government announcements and our medical advice and consider the appropriateness of offering training.

Over the next few days we will make an announcement on the revised approach for the Saturday morning rides, which we are hoping to offer weekly.
