Hi all SCC members, GBITS, Social or otherwise inclined! There are prizes, there is food and quite possibly some pub stops!!
It is that time of year again, and to coincide with our summer ball, organised by the lovely Caran, the SCC annual Steeplechase will also take place during the day on the Saturday 12th July 2014.
Meeting place will be near the car park at Aireville Pool, under the SCC branded gazebo at 10am.
The point of the event is to mix all abilities together, all bike types and confidence, to work in teams to navigate around a course of approximately 30 miles, stopping at a number of checkpoints and taking team photos as proof.
Whats difficult about that? Well the checkpoints are in the form of clues, and you get these only on the day, the teams are selected out of the hat from all those that put their names in, each team will have GBIT/Social/B/A riders, so come on and put yourself up for it. The teams are of around 4 or 5 and will navigate together, they must all be at the check points together and finish together. So this is not about speed, but about team work, fun and working out which is the simplest route between points based on team ability as well as cunningly planning your routes.
As with last year, we ask for everyone to donate something to the lunch, fruit, sandwiches, pies, crisps, drinks, etc. etc. Last year we had everything including gluten free, if the weather is good we can even BBQ.
