Starting point


We're Back and Better Than Ever!

This a gentle ride at a gentle pace. It's designed to get us all out riding as a group again, albeit a small one.

There are new rules & guidelines for you to read & follow below.

On this ride we will start at Catford Village Hall & have a gentle ride around the surrounding villages of Eaves, Wharles and Treales. We will take you on one lap, but you can then go around again if you want to ride further, but only in a group of 6 or less & respecting the social distancing requirement.
We will pass Roots cafe where you can stop for an essential helping of coffee & cake!
Be great to see you all out riding again.

Covid-19 Ride Rules

1: Do not attend if you are suffering from any Covid - 19 symptoms

2: Maximum of 6 people on any ride including Ride Leaders.

3: Riding in Single File is recommended to facilitate Social Distancing, but riding in pairs is permitted if circumstances allow

4: Riders to be 2M apart. Despite the reduction to 1M, BC still recommends we ride 2M apart.

5: Participants should have hand sanitiser with them & take tissues on the ride.

6: Masks are not recommended

8: Try to avoid sharing equipment.

9: If First Aid is required, Leaders should use gloves, glasses, a face mask & a body covering such as a disposable apron or a waterproof jacket that is cleaned or disposed of afterwards.

10: If CPR is required mouth to mouth should not be given unless it is to a child.

Ride Leaders can't police some of this during a ride - It is up to the participants to read, listen to, respect & follow the rules. If they choose not to they will be asked to leave the ride.

We'll ride at a steady pace of 12 mph on this ride and we'll keep our pace at a level so that we can all stay together & have a really pleasant ride. This is a flat ride suitable for road bikes & hybrids with road tyres. If you are unsure of your bikes suitability, please get in touch before the ride.

Please check your bike over the night before the ride, tyres inflated, all bolts tight, lubricated. Clothing, Helmet & lights checked & ready. Please ensure you have all the parts for your bike - pump, spare tube, multi tool, hand sanitiser & tissues. Your bike is your responsibility! Phone, money too. You are your responsibility!
Please aim to be ready to ride 15 mins before the ride start time, getting away on time is good for everyone. It would be great to have some new & some familiar faces on this ride, you're all welcome & I look forward to riding with you.
