Winter club run news!

With the clocks changing this weekend (yes, already), we can all look forward to both an extra hour in bed, and a new start time for the Club's Sunday run!  You may recall having the opportunity to express your view on the most appropriate start time in our recent Club Run Survey...    We received 36 responses to the survey, which is a pretty good response rate as these things go.  While a crack team of data analysts scrutinise and analyse the survey responses, I have managed to extract the responses for the question asked about the preferred start time for the winter rides. 
We offered choices of 09:00, 09:30 or 10:00 and an option to specify something else entirely.   Outlier results were 1 vote each for 08:00 (when it'll still be dark for half the winter) and 13:00 (when many of us will be expected to spend time with spouses / partners / children).   An 09:00 start was the single most popular option, but there were an equal number in favour of a later start at either 9:30 or 10:00.  Given that sun-up in the deepest, darkest mid-winter isn't until 08:45 or thereabouts, an 09:30 start seems like a reasonable compromise.   
On that basis, we'll be starting the 2016 / 17 winter rides at 09:30! 
 
I'm not sure yet what route(s) we'll be heading out on this weekend, but will make sure there is something out there before the weekend.
