We are finally back on for club rides!!! … Hopefully they will be back for good this time with the Vaccination rollout going quickly in the UK.
Whilst the British Cycling advice is that groups of up to 15 are permissable, the club has decided to keep to the rule of 6. It is felt that at this time this is an easier number to deal with, and hopefully will not attract animosity with other road users that we share the space with.
Dukinfield Rides meet outside Dukinfield Town Hall. The earliest riders arrive around 8:50 for a prompt set off at 9am. Expect to get back noon to 1pm.
Hazel Grove Rides usually meet at the Car Park behind the Rising Sun pub on the A6/A523 junction. Occasionally the ride meets at Hyde Market Place when going towards Yorkshire, these are listed in the calendar below. Riders meet to set off around 9:30 – 9:45. Expect to be back around 4pm – 5pm. Keep an eye over the next few days whilst we assemble the planned destinaitons for these rides.
Once again we have the Cycling Track in Ashton on Monday nights. The routine here is that we have the first and third Mondays of the month – so should be easy to remember when they are! Initially we are limited to 20 for these, so it is essential to let Martin know in advance that you would like to be in the 20!
On all the rides, please can you post on the Whatsapp group if you are planning on riding the day before so that we can work out the number of riders we have.
Look forward to riding with everyone again this year.
