Saturday rides have been posted, please click the link at the bottom of this post, there will NOT be a ‘pace’ ride for this weekend, the group will decide its own pace based on who attends and conditions.
The ride times are 8.30am, 8.45am and 9am.
There will be no planned coffee stop but groups may well decide to stop if they wish and if this is the case, please remember the reputational considerations etc.
As we said previously, whilst it is apparently acceptable for clubs affiliated to British Cycling to ride in groups of up-to 15, we have decided to stick to 6. The requirements on Test and Trace still stand hence we are continuing to use Eventbrite to schedule rides.
In addition, also to remind everyone that if you, a member of your household or anyone you have been in recent contact with has a cold, flu or COVID symptoms, we ask that you do not join us on Club rides until after the period prescribed government advice.
This week routes are the following.

TT Training will start on the Thursday 22nd of April. Like last year we will use one of the club segments as the route and ride it like a conventional TT with riders setting off at 30 second intervals and being self timed via Strava so you can monitor your own progress.
Groups will be limited to six riders but we may have two groups or more depending on demand up to a maximum of 15 riders.Continue…
Please meet at Canning Hill garage at 17:40 on 20/04/2021
Two groups will form and both groups will ride separate over to Milk Hill. Each group (five plus a Ride Lead).
Each group will alternate reps up Milk Hill and Alton Priors (Barnes) Hill.
One group will go up Milk Hill and then come back down turning left to go up Alton Priors (Barnes) Hill, the other group will go up Alton Priors (Barnes) Hill and then come back down turning right to go up Milk Hill. A total of 3 reps on each hill.
We ask that if any members are suffering from any illness or experiencing any symptom that could be COVID related that they do not ride until they have recovered.
Please respect the social distancing requirements when meeting up, riding and dispersing.
Please understand that whilst these arrangements appear formal, we trust they will not be onerous and they are in the interests of all and aimed at working within the prescribed government framework. We appreciate your co-operation and assistance in making them work.
Please book your place here
