Another productive committee meeting was held this week. We were pleased to be joined by Eoin Anderson from Cheshire Police who came to meet the committee and give a road safety talk. The club is proud of its links with the Police and other organisations in the community.

Eoin gave us an update on what Cheshire police are doing to promote road safety and gave us some great pointers on things we should do / look out for.

Top of the list is 'ICEQR', these are stickers you can buy which have your emergency details stored on a qr code, which attaches to your helmet so in an emergency, the police or paramedics can scan this and know who you are instantly.The club is currently looking into the possibility of custom club qr labels for all members so watch this space.

Another great idea we were told about is Cheshire polices, new website which will allow people to submit Dash Cam or helmet camera footage to the police of any close passes / incidents which will then be reviewed the police officers who may then take action if appropriate.

It's very reassuring to see how the police are taking a positive approach to road safety and working with the cycling community. #keepitsafe #buildinglinks #cheshirepolice #chesterroadclub

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 Strava. 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.
