The committee has had several zoom style meetings and we have been keeping abreast of government guidelines and the interpretations of these by Cycling UK.
Under the present circumstances we feel that it is not possible to organise club runs. Similarly, we have decided to cancel the planned Challenge Rides (100 mile and 100k) scheduled for July 1st.
However, we would like to encourage members to take tentative steps to getting out on their bikes to meet up informally to ride in very small groups (4 might be a good working maximum) and/or to meet at the outside café facilities that are now emerging.
With this in mind, we would like to encourage you and all members to start using the blog more actively to arrange such informal rides and to inform club members of any take-away café locations.
Depending on how the advice changes, we might plan a challenge ride later in the summer (say 100k and 50k) which members could ride singly or in very small groups. The routes might be planned to incorporate the known take-away coffee venues.
