you done a good job today, not bad for first race organiser…… 😉les1Participant9 June 2013 at 15:20Post count: 354
Thank you Phil 🙂 can I just say a massive thank you to all who helped me out today. Fantastic race.nofearParticipant9 June 2013 at 22:06Post count: 604
Well done Les as organizing a road race is difficult for somebody with loads of experience in either racing or for somebody who has helped for years but never stepped up to actually organizing a race. You are relatively new to cycling and had no previous experience and yet you were prepared to have a go and the race went very well. I think the club is very lucky to have somebody like you who is willing to play a major role in keeping up the extensive yearly programme of races that we promote.

Thanks Dave that message means a lot to me and you two are amazing people and I hope outside the club we can keep in touch. I have a massive training programme before heading to Russia. Please keep in touch and if you ever want a marshal on the TTs give me a call.NickBParticipant10 June 2013 at 22:33Post count: 232
Yes, very well done Les. It was an excellent aggressive race – just a shame about the traffic, but it all worked out well in the end. You did brilliantly for a first timer, it actually gets a little easier over the years as you get into the swing of it! But I’ll stick to organising the cyclo cross – no traffic jams!les1Participant10 June 2013 at 22:50Post count: 354
Thanks Nick and so did you as driver and thanks for your help, it all came good in the end. I owe you drivers some petrol money so let me know. I enjoyed being a big part of this event and looking after the riders as for me that’s what it’s all about. Had some really lovely E-mails from the riders and commissaries about how well we all handled the event. Going to do more for BC as I loved organising it even with the challenges. Take care and good luck with the cyclocross and if you need be let me know.JedParticipant12 June 2013 at 23:55Post count: 191
Well done Les. Regrettably, I was unable to attend the race but I hear you did very well. You are an enthusiastic and valuable member of our club and a definite asset. I hope you remain involved with the club.les1Participant13 June 2013 at 06:58Post count: 354
Thanks Jed that means a lot unfortunately I have had a hard time by a few members in the club and feel all my efforts seem to have been for nothing I need some time out. Hopefully you will see me again soon and good luck to all you racersShelaghParticipant13 June 2013 at 18:21Post count: 27
Les, you did a really good job. A few negative comments do not a club make. Focus on all the really positive comments that you’ve had and the fact that they’re probably from the people that you would want them from too.les1Participant13 June 2013 at 18:45Post count: 354
I know Hun its just upset me that’s all. I spent 6 months on this race and it came with plenty of challenges but as Dave said I have never done anything like this in my life before, one the day I was very very proud to have achieved such a challenge and least I know understand all about organising a road race and keeping the riders safe. It was an amazing feeling to have achieved this 🙂Claire.OMember13 June 2013 at 21:45Post count: 419
I am sorry if you have had any problems? It might be best to raise any concerns with a committee member rather than on an open forum? This might give new members the wrong impression of our friendly and inclusive club!
I am sure that you feel strongly about this, but at least put any comments in the ‘members only’ bit please!
