Covid-19 - The road back to group cycling

The current government guidelines for Covid-19 changed on 29th March, allowing the "Rule of Six" to once again come into effect for outdoor meetings and activities. There are also exceptions for larger groups for "organised group rides", under the banner of sporting activities, but we are currently being cautious as to how this applies to our more socially oriented rides and lunch stops. With this in mind, our committee will be meeting next week to discuss our return to group cycling, with a view to restarting club rides shortly after May 17th, when the outdoor restriction on social gatherings increases to 30…

Return to Group Rides (amended)

Only last week we wrote that with the (then) current restrictions, and exemptions for organised group rides, we felt able to resume more normal activities, and published a new rides list.

"Cycling UK can no longer advise groups that they can rely on the organised activity exemption. Accordingly, our advice in…

Bridlington - May 2020

The current situation with the Coronovirus pandemic is very unlikley to be other with by May, so it's extrememly unlikely that we would be able to go ahead with our weekend trip to Bridlington.  We're therefore advising anybody who has already booked, to cancel their accommodation. Premier Inn's Semi-Flex booking allowed cancellation up to two weeks before the arrival date, and I've had emails stating this is now extended up to the night before.  We have also heard that the nearby caravan site is now closed. Once things return to normal, we will look at re-scheduling for later on in…

Beryl

We are thinking of running a theatre trip to see "Beryl" by Maxime Peake on 18th Oct. 7.30 p.m (suggested). This extraordinary true story and energetic play is about sporting heroine Beryl Burton, who became a major cycling champion in the 1960's. After falling ill during her 11+ exam, Beryl is told she won’t amount to anything so she sets out to prove everyone wrong! Fast-forward several years, and a blossoming workplace romance with charismatic amateur cyclist Charlie Burton leads Beryl to find true love - not only with Charlie but with the thrill and freedom of being on two wheels.
