The club has recently received a complaint from a member of the public about a Croston Velo group riding through Mawdesley on Thursday 30th August. In this instance a group was passing a skip on the side of the road however as it passed a member of the group seemed to swerve out of the group in front of an oncoming vehicle causing the driver to have to slam on to avoid a collision.
We are unaware of who specifically this was however it seems like an opportune moment to ask all members of the club to always ride with courtesy for other road users and pedestrians. The club has a published guide to group riding and group etiquette to ensure the safety of everyone in the group, if you are unfamiliar please read/review this.
It has also been mentioned to me recently that it seems only a small number of each group have the routes downloaded to their GPS devices. The more members who have the routes available allows us to be more flexible when arranging groups and ride captains and also ensures you are aware of upcoming turns for safety. All 2018 routes are published on our ‘ride directory’ page of the website. If you are unable to download the route please try and familiarise yourself prior to the ride.
A step by step guide to downloading routes to Garmin has been published below.
