First Aid Course: 30th May 2018
In the light of Steve T's recent accident and the role John M's first aid training played in averting a tragedy a first aid course for CER and other cyclists is being arranged.  John M is doing the organising assisted by other members.  The event is planned for May probably in Chester.

John Mills writes:
There has been considerable interest in the proposed First Aid presentation to be given by Steve Evans MBE, a cyclist and retired para medic.  We will be joined by members of Simply Grey Cycling Club.
The First Aid Session will be held at Northgate Church Hall, Chester on Wednesday 30th May commencing at 19:00 hours. The presentation will last for approximately 90 minutes.  A contribution to cover the costs of CER members will be met by CER from accumulated funds.
There are only a few places left so if anyone else wishes to attend please confirm as soon as possible.

Annual Long Ride - 14th June - Coedway, Nr Shrewsbury
Steve H has agreed to plan and lead this year's long ride.
Steve writes:
The Old Hand and Diamond at Coedway is a friendly inn serving good food and drink in the picturesque Severn valley.
We assemble at 07:50 for a prompt 08:00 start from the canal side car park in Waverton, grid ref: SJ455642. It is hoped that we will have both mod and brisk rides.
The route heads out east and southwards through Whitchurch to cross the A41 for a quick mid-morning stop at the Midway Truck Stop at Prees Heath. Then south west passing below Ellesmere, through Lower Hordley and Ruyton X1 Towns.  After crossing the river Severn we take the road from Crew Green to our lunch stop, the Old Hand and Diamond Inn.
After lunch there is a loop southwards through dramatic countryside before heading back over the Severn, and then through Maesbrook and Oswestry for a mid-afternoon break at our usual café in Chirk. After Chirk we head north to Ruabon, then Holt, before making our way back to Waverton. On the map this is 107 miles, and you can preview the route through this link:
