Event description

Description

This ride leaves from the corner of Turner Lane & High Street, Whiston at 10am.

Before booking a place, please read the section titled COVID-19. By booking a place you agree to adhere to points set out there.

Ride description:

A cheeky couple of hours to celebrate the club's fifth Birthday. Get rid of those New Year hangovers with a crisp ride.

Something we've done before. Relatively flat. No café but a swift pint afterwards.

COVID-19

Booking is required. We have to keep a record of attendees for Track & Trace purposes and limit the numbers on rides to adhere to maximum group sizes set out by British Cycling.

No booking = No ride.

Please do not book onto a ride if you have no intention of turning up, it’s unfair on your fellow club members.

For the time being, only members may book onto a ride. No guests.

There will also be strict adherence to social distancing guidelines. We expect all attendees to follow all guidance currently in place as set out by the government.

Ride Captains will choose a café stop that has outside seating and doesn’t require booking. Then the choice to sit inside or not is yours.

If anyone in your household is displaying any COVID-19 symptoms, please do not attend a ride. You will be asked to leave immediately.

Following Track & Trace protocol, you must also notify us if you show any COVID-19 symptoms within 14 days of attending a ride.

What do you need?

Helmets are required and carry at least one spare inner tube plus a basic tool kit comprising a minimum of:

  • Multi-tool

  • Tyre levers

  • Chain tool (chain breaker)

  • One inner tube (preferably two)

  • Spanner (with multiple size holes, helps with brake/pedal situations)

  • Spoke key

  • Mini pump (or gas canisters and valve)

  • An emergency tenner (useful at the cafe stop if nothing else)

  • In the Winter months, riders should have full-length mudguards and preferably a mudguard flap - it helps to keep our kit clean!


Our no-drop policy applies to every club ride so there will usually be a tool for the job amongst us somewhere and hands-on deck to help out. However, it's still wise to carry a toolkit of your own in case you have to head back home alone for any reason.

Rules of the road

Everyone on a club ride needs to take responsibility for the safety of others as well as for themselves. In order to ensure our rides remain safe as well as good fun, we ask all our members to follow some basic rules and standards of cycling etiquette.

If you're considering just doing part of this ride we would recommend you familiarise yourself with the area and/or bring a map of some kind. However, if you ask the Road Captain they will help as much as possible in directing you.

Please let someone know if you leave the ride/group as we don't want to waste time searching for you if nothing is wrong.

If you are struggling in any way don't suffer in silence, please let the Road Captain know so they can help if possible.

Disclaimer

This is an opportunity to meet up for a ride with others and socialise. Although someone will be determining the route you are ultimately responsible for your own actions.
