Thanks to everyone at Evans for a great day on Sunday. Really well organized and the coffee & cake at the drink station was a lifesaver!
can we have more northen ride-it’s please we only get about 4 a year
well marked-out course/route, a pleasure to ride on a very cold day.
We only just got the hot drinks up and running about 20minutes before the first riders came through. Before this there was a new urn, rubber hose and a gas bottle for Tony to assemble Krypton Factor style.
One side effect to having Tea and Coffee was that more people stopped than usual and we got through twice as much cake!!!
We put these events on where we have stores, Rochdale is for the Manchester shops, and we also have events in the Peaks, Leeds, Thirsk and the Lakes. As we have over half of our stores within the M25 the way the planning is worked out is one event in the south/London area and one event for our further afield stores each month. At present we run 26 weekends a month and there simply isn’t enough weekends to put more in. I like my weekends off, and so does my girlfriend, so at the present staffing levels we can’t put any more events on. That’s not to say that sometime in the future Evans might increase the size of the team to increase the number of events….
I thought it was a great event. A really friendly atmosphere, helpful staff and a well chosen and clearly marked out route.
I never thought I’d enjoy cycling 50 miles on a cold Sunday in January so much!
Thanks to everyone involved for making it such a great day.
Thanks very much, Keep an eye out for forthcoming Cycling Weekly’s as you’ve been submitted!!!!
Thanks for a great day! route very well marked out, maybe a bit hard on the long route…them hills went on for ever…. Where do you buy your cake? Superb.
