|Hi again, just a quick update on VCLE Reliability Rides. We're aware of the very poor signing on process and we've made some changes to hopefully speed it up.
Rider complete an individual signing on slip, no waiting for a sheet.
Takes slip to the appropriate table, Long or Short ride.
Receives numbered ticket in exchange for signing on and entry fee.
Ticket number entered on signing on slip.
When ready to ride take ticket to start and hand to timekeeper who enters group no. time off on ticket and you're away.
Well, that's the plan!.
This year we'll be making a donation to the two Air Ambulance Services, one covers Derbys, the other covers Notts. Amount depends on entries
Energy gel for all entrants.
All ticket numbers entered into a raffle for £25 voucher.
Thanks in anticipation of your support.
