Here’s a look ‘back’ at February with ARNY.
February turned out to be an astonishing month weather wise, although the first few days were still giving us minus overnight temperatures, that soon stopped and we ended with the warmest February on record! Not bad when you consider that last February we were being battered by ‘The Beast from the East’.
The good weather saw a more than average numbers of associates taking training early in the year, with 7 different associates enjoying 12 training sessions between them. This compares with 6 training session by only 4 associates in February 2018.
Those who read last month’s article will know we are increasing our Tutor Team for 2019. Dave A. and Mick have now competed the first 2 stages of their training and Dave T shouldn’t be far behind, now that his new bike has arrived!
As mentioned previously, it’s another reminder to those members who have already passed their tests about the Saturday ‘post-test’ social ride group. simply add your name to the Doodle Poll with PT (post-test) after your name and indicate if you’re attending for a social ride or not (just like you did for training). Everyone else can then see who’s going and if it’s worth them attending too. You can then meet up at Strawberry Fields café with those undergoing their training and then go off and have your own social ride and then meet up with everyone else at the end destination. This gives you about 2.5 hours of riding.
Remember this is not organised by the tutors, it’s up to you to use it or lose it.
Well, that just about sums up February, short and sweet but a productive month all the same, until next time…..
