COVID-19 & Club rides

As promised in the last COVID-19 update, the Committee have been in discussion about commencing club rides.

We're pleased to announce that following a change in guidance from British Cycling, the Committee have agreed that club rides will commence on Saturday 1st August.

We'll run one group per ride of our full schedule of 9 rides a week.

WiW Green, WiW Red and WiW Off-road.
Saturday Green, Saturday Amber and Saturday Red.
Sunday Green, Sunday Amber and Sunday Red.

Please note the following, which will apply to ALL club rides until further notice.

Booking is required. We have to keep a record of attendees for Track & Trace purposes and limit the numbers on rides to adhere to maximum group sizes set out by British Cycling.

No booking = No ride.

Please do not book onto a ride if you have no intention of turning up, it’s unfair on your fellow club members.

For the time being, only members may book onto a ride. No guests.

There will also be strict adherence to social distancing guidelines. We expect all attendees to follow all guidance currently in place as set out by the government.

Ride Captains will choose a café stop that has outside seating and doesn’t require booking. Then the choice to sit inside or not is yours.

If anyone in your household is displaying any COVID-19 symptoms, please do not attend a ride. You will be asked to leave immediately.

Following Track & Trace protocol, you must also notify us if you show any COVID-19 symptoms within 14 days of attending a ride.

We have to be strict on the above, on group numbers and following ALL guidance set out by the government and British Cycling or the club will not be insured.

A massive thanks to Mick Harrison and the rest of the Ride Captains for facilitating this. As you can imagine, it's not been a straight forward task.

The schedule will begin to fill out on Facebook and the website as soon as possible.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.
