Club activities resumed on Sunday 19th July.
Now we can ride as a group on club rides we need to have rules to keep us and the public safe:
1) Ride Leader to take a list of all cyclists on a club ride.
2) Social distancing to be observed at all times.
3) Take care when at coffee stops to socially distance from members of the public.
4)Members to be encouraged to take their own food on the ride.
5) All members should take their own hand sanitiser on the ride.
Question marks remain over Cafe stop opening times atm. So bring sandwiches and prepare for a possible roadside picnic
