We’re Back!

The club is very happy to confirm that, in line with the latest guidance issued by British Cycling (BC), we can resume club runs from Sunday 4th April.   

The BC guidance allows for groups of up to 15 on rides organised by BC-affiliated clubs. However, for safety, practicality and to avoid any negative public perception we will for now resume riding in groups of no more than six and then review as restrictions ease.

It is a requirement that the club logs attendance on each ride and we ask all members to confirm the group they intend to ride with via the forum.

We will continue to meet at dispersed start points as follows:

Fast group – 19 mph average – Outside Mica in the market square
Medium fast group – 17 mph average – Outside the Heath Sports Club
Medium group – 16 mph average – Containers by the entrance to the heath car park
Medium steady group – 15mph average – Town hall car park - health centre end
Steady group – 13mph average – Town hall car park – mini roundabout end

For the safety of all club members please also observe the following rules.

1. Clearly, if you have Covid-19 symptoms, or become aware that you have recently been in contact with a person who has since tested positive, do not attend the club run.

2. If you develop Covid-19 within 14 days of riding with the club please email to with the date of the ride and which group you joined.

3. It could become necessary to contact members to alert them that they have been in contact with a person who has since tested positive. To ensure that the club has accurate records, all members should confirm the group they intend to join. This can be done via the forum or, if you have issues logging in/posting, please email

4. Please ensure that the rule of six is observed before, during and after your ride and that appropriate social distancing is observed throughout.

5. If stopping for a coffee after the ride please follow guidance for social meetings as well as instructions from the establishment.

Re: We’re Back!

I am planning to ride tomorrow if there is a space in a suitable group.  I will be at the THCP for 09:00.  Looking forward to a group ride again.

Re: We’re Back!

I'd like to join the group, if ok. If pace is too speedy(!) I'll just drop off the back!

Re: We’re Back!

It will be so nice to see everyone again! I think this will make us six, but for anyone who has not signed up yet, please do, because we can always split into two groups.

Re: We’re Back!

Please add me to the required log of riders on Sunday 11th. I will be at the THCP at 08:50 and hope there are spaces in the steady group. If not I will go solo.
NB the car park is likely to be busy with people getting their vaccine - my 2nd is booked for 14:40 - hooray.  Cycle, coffee, shower, lunch and jab!!!!
