RIDE GUIDES FOR INVICTUS TEAM 3-7 April

Post by Plawless » Mon Mar 20, 2017 3:36 pm

Hello fellow Tripleshotters!

As you may know I do some stuff with the Canadian Invictus Games team in preparing the 90 ill/injured Canadian servicemen/women to compete for our country at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto in September.

The cycling team is about 30 people ranging from A riders to people who have never ridden a bike. I am looking to TS to see if there are any fellow riders that might be able to spare a few hours during that week (during the day) to ride with a small group of these riders to help them out and keep them safe etc.

The rides will be in the morning leaving from Workpoint Barracks in Esquimalt around 9am and will be done by about 11/1130. A second ride will happen from 2-4pm leaving from the same place.

If you might have the time and inclination to help would you please let me know? I can be reached on a ride (I'm usually found near the back of any pack I'm with!) or by email at prlawless@me.com

Thanks very much. I promise you its a worthy use of your time.

Peter

You do "some stuff", huh? Ever the master of understatement. Anyhow, I'm in.

On behalf of the Tripleshot Exec, we'd REALLY like it if people could step up to help Peter out with this initiative. It's got the Tripleshot ethos written all over it.

Cheers

Hello awesome volunteers. Can I ask you to fill in your availability / committed times below?

All rides will depart from from workpoint (adm kingsmill bldg - see map below). Basic plan is to ride to beacon hill as a group or two then do some drills etc and send a few groups along the waterfront. Hopefully a stronger group can go hit munn / observatory (prob wed) and there may be others. I just can't be certain until we see exactly who shows up and what they can do.

Rides:

Monday - 2-330 volunteers: Andrew N;

Tuesday - 9-1130 volunteers: Greg F

Wed - 2-330 volunteers: Ritchie; Shelagh; Andrew N

Thu - 9-1130 volunteers: Andrew N

Fri - 9-1130 volunteers: Ritchie; Greg F

Thanks team!
