Not at all , the club founder asked me to run these rides at this pace .Good morning,
It may be ego bruising but have you asked those people who stopped turning up why?
You say that you moved clubs a year ago and have been organising the Sunday rides for a while. Whilst it may not have been intentional have you misunderstood the needs of the Sunday riders and somehow claimed a club's institution as your own domain and changed it or has everybody just decided that Saturday rides fit better with their family life?
If you get on with someone well you could possibly use him as a filter, so any really nasty answers might be toned down a bit.
Sorry if this sounds a bit harsh.
Funnily enough today i posted a slower , shorter ride and 6 turned up , normally for me the pace would be a bit slow and short but as i was still getting over the lurgy it was enough .
I mentioned it to the wife of the club sec/ founder that i was disheartened with the usual attendance and we will go from there .
