Cancellation of all club activities due to Coronavirus

Following advice from the Government as well as our governing bodies Cycling UK and British Cycling we are cancelling all club activities until 30th April. We will review this in mid-April for events form May onwards. This includes…

• Club runs (Sunday rides and Wednesday Wheelers)
• Reliability rides
• Time trials
• Youth coaching and roller sessions

Cycling UK and British Cycling have asked all clubs not to run any group activities, including club runs and reliability rides.

They also highlight that people should not avoid cycling altogether as it’s a great way to keep fit and boost immunity.
