Some of you will already be aware that on 9 March 2021, British Cycling announced an update to their Covid advice under the ‘Way Forward Framework’, details of which can be seen on the below email.
As a result, the committee have decided that, barring further government announcements, club rides will resume with effect from Monday 29 March.
Club rides will initially be limited to a maximum of 15 riders (which is a good turn out for the Wheelers) who must adhere to 1M+ social distancing. Additionally, riders must observe best practice in respect of hygiene, self – sufficiency and equipment sharing.
It is of course entirely up to each member to decide whether they are comfortable in returning to club rides and in making your decision you may wish to consider whether or not you have yet been vaccinated, your state of health and personal circumstances. Nobody should feel under any pressure to take part in club rides unless they are completely comfortable in doing so.
Thankfully, I had my first Covid jab 5 weeks ago and should receive my second in the next few weeks, so, weather permitting, I will be riding on Monday 29 March and look forward to seeing you all soon.
