CHESTER RC 50 - more marshals needed

Rebecca Holland has done a stirling job and drummed up a number of marshals/helpers for the Chester RC 50 on 4th September. However, this event does need a lot of marshals. I still need at least 2 more people and preferably 4 more to make sure our event is as safe for the riders as possible. The event is an early start but should all be over for the marshals by about 11am. Any offers of help will be appreciated.

RIDES

Oulton Park

The Club organises a number of regular rides for beginner, intermediate and advanced ability members. Information about the ride, such as route and meeting point are posted on Facebook and the Google calendar. Our beginner and intermediate rides are run on the 'start together, finish together' mantra. It's important though that all riders are self-sufficient i.e. puncture repair kit and spare inner tubes and have good lights and mudguards where appropriate. Members are encouraged to wear Club kit for these rides. Non-members are welcome to ride with us but we ask you join the Club on the fourth occasion.

Our advanced level rides will only wait for those who suffer mechanical problems. You will be expected to be able to navigate your own way home if you are dropped from the group.

Our Google Drive has a library of tcx files.
