Virtual Pub Night
Leader:
Steve Swanton
Start Time:
8:00 pm
Start Location:
Zoom
Description:
As we are unable to meet together as a group due to the Covid-19 regulations, we are holding a Virtual Pub Night on Zoom to chat and share news in the comfort of our own homes. Please BYOB so we can pretend we are all in the pub together!

An invitation to the meeting will be sent out by email to all those subscribing to our newsletter. If you don't receive this and would like to join us, please drop me a line before 6pm on Tuesday.

There is no particular structure to the evening, but if you have any cycling or club-related questions that you would like to ask please drop me an email, or of course raise them on the evening.

Looking forward to seeing as many of you as can make it.
Report:
It was really nice to see everyone again! :D An interesting and useful 90 minutes of chat and the bonus of an unexpectedly extended free session so that we weren't interrupted.
After catching up on people's cycling activities during lockdown, a range of topics came up (talk) including the new Cycling UK Wantage repository of rides on rideswithgps, vitual turbo sessions 8), Cycling UK's updated position on group cycling (mm), the production of local route sheets (clap), advice to those wanting to buy a bike to get cycling, and the potential for redesignating the canal towpath and Larkhill track as bridleways for cycling. Thanks for everyone's contribution to the discussion :D.
We decided at the end that while we couldn't meet and cycle together, it would be nice to maintain contact. So we agreed to continue the virtual gatherings on a weekly basis starting at the slightly later time of 8:30pm, for those who may be out cycling or joining the new virtual turbo sessions. Please look out for the meeting details on Facebook and by email. Look out too for details of a Cyclle treasure Hunt next week to provide a common goal for our cycling activity.
Looking forward to seeing everyone again next week (hi).
