Latest Update

### ALL CLUB RIDES & EVENTS CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE ###

  • NO club rides or organised group activities will be taking place until the government (and our governing body) guidance is crystal clear and all the committee can agree that the activity places no one at appreciable risk.
  • Any club member riding does so at their own personal choice of distance, location, etc. but we would urge all members to use common sense and stay ‘reasonably’ close to home so as not to put any unnecessary strain on the emergency services and NHS.
  • Please ride SOLO, or only with members of your own household.
  • Please do not ride in club kit if you can at all avoid doing so.

You have all seen the advice from the government and British Cycling. You have also seen the comments on the pros and cons of riding for mental health benefits versus the risk of an accident impacting on a stretched NHS. The committee have been discussing the best way forward and have decided to keep our Facebook group open for community support but want to discourage any action that might reflect badly on the club or the wider cycling community.

For more up to date information, follow us on our Facebook Group.
