Session sign ups
A reminder that from 1 February we will by trialing a new session sign up system.
As we are all aware there is a high demand on our coached sessions and sign ups fill quickly, especially in peak periods such as now. What we have been seeing lately is high drop out on the day, quite often with sessions that had long waiting lists on the morning running with spaces, mainly due to people speculatively booking up to a session the previous week. This is frustrating both for other members who might have wanted to take part and for coaches. In a move to try and stop speculative sign up the committee have decided to trial opening sign up to all sessions 48 hours before the session starts (fortunately this does not have any clashes with any sessions that are running). This trial will start from February and run until the end of March when we will consult members before reviewing.
The first sessions this will apply to are Headington Swim and Static Bike on Monday 3 February. You also won't be able to sign up to these sessions if you haven't renewed your membership, so to avoid missing out make sure you have signed up here.
Further to the AGM we do still have a vacancy for a General Committee Member, if you are interested in joining the committee and helping run the club please do get in touch with me.
This Sunday Dave Broadribb will again lead an Intermediate 2 ride of about 75km, no coffee stop this week though, and Kevin Biggs will lead an intermediate 1 ride. Watch out for details on our Facebook page for more information and routes and please comment on the post if you are intending on riding. The weather is looking cold this weekend so please ensure you are dressed appropriately.
As usual leaving Oxsrad at 9.15 but if frosty please check Facebook to check the rides are going ahead.
Also a bit of advance warning that Bernard Calnan will lead a steady ride of approximately 25 miles, including a coffee stop, on Sunday 26 January. This will be at a pace to suit the group and ideal for anyone not used to group riding and wanting to build confidence.
We would like to make this section as interactive as possible so please send any questions to us about anything triathlon related we would be happy to answer them (or if we can’t answer we will find someone more qualified!) Sarah and Dan email@example.com
