To comply with Social Distancing regulations, please send me an email so that I can assign you a starting time; it will be as close as possible to 9:30. If you wish to ride with a friend/partner or in a group of up to six, please give me everyone’s names so that I can start you off at the same time. Include a contact number if you have one.
If you would like a Paper Routsheet (with turning directions), please let me know; it’s usually a good idea to have one anyway, in case of GPS failure.Reliability Rides are not races; they are mainly a test of fortitude, navigational skill, and the ability to deal with minor mechanical problems (e.g. a puncture) along the way.

A list of participants and starting times will appear on the Club Members’ Closed Facebook Page, a few days before the event.

Very best wishes,
