There was no fence handy, what were we meant to do with you.
ooppps, we have idiot hijacked another thread.
We all love the volunteers and the beers they buy us, sorry, the work they do. Without them the rides would be more expensive and not as much fun.
It could not have been easy last year for the WARBYs that had to stay out in the heat all day as well as stopping assist.
Good job WARBYS. See back on thread now.

Haha no! Sag is a noble profession and i think Fraggle really enjoyed it besides that one day. He was kind enough to lend me his air con one hot day when i was doing eco out in the sun. I'd love to do sag if i were old enough. You get to be out on the route and actually meet riders and take part. One day

I think the sag drops them of at the closest station if it tends to get busy anyway. People know they are going home to a hot bath and a lovely dinner and possible quaffing. You'll be right Lorraine, you'll love it!!

I have absolutely no doubt you'll do a fantastic job Lorraine. As Fraggle will tell you, when picking folk up in the sag wagon they're likely to be feeling a bit low, dejected and perhaps more than a little annoyed that their body or machine has let them down.
A big smile, cheerful approach and a joke (about anything except the dilemma of them having to get the sag ) will peck them up.

earl wrote:Yes, that's right, but different teams are having get-togethers before the ATB.
The riding marshals will be getting together later in the month, but as speedhump said, others will no doubt have a gathering too.
For the GVBR, there'll be a WARBY training ride within a couple of weeks, another in September, and the last in October, but I dare say those signed-up to do the ride will be notified of these rides and asked to confirm if they plan to attend.
Most of the vollies from all teams get a chance to meet and mingle the night before the ride ... and thereafter, each evening.
