Thursday evening rides

Thu 17th September , 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Every Thursday evening until further notice. See below for how to ‘book in’


Many of us have been out cycling informally, either alone or with family or friends during the changing Lockdown situation. However, at the July Committee Meeting it was agreed It was now an appropriate time for the Club to gradually reintroduce the Official Club Ride Programme. It has been decided to start with Thursday Evening Rides, beginning in August. These are shorter (approx. 1 hr.) and are without the difficulties of managing refreshments & coffee stops.
We have devised a new format to comply with current Government guidelines and Cycling UK’s current guidelines on Club riding. It will be up to individual cyclists to ensure they are aware of these guidelines and are complying with them.

We will limit group size to a maximum of 6 persons. It must also be stressed as this is an unprecedented & evolving situation, our methods are, necessarily, a work in progress. We will, therefore, be continually reviewing the above and welcome any constructive feedback in order to help us all get the best out of our Club riding again.
 

Start date: Thu 6 Aug and all subsequent Thursdays throughout the summer

Start Locations each week:
Battle Abbey Green (sub group Battle Recreation Ground)
Bexhill Sailing Club (sub group Bexhill Colonade)

 

Start time will be 6pm

Rides are only open to members at this time. You must book in with Emma by text between Sunday and Tuesday for Thursday ride of THAT week. You will also need to state which start location you are choosing and whether you are prepared to lead (yes or no) and any constraints.

By Wednesday evening Emma will inform leaders of their groups. If there are more than 6 people (inc leader) for one location Emma will form a sub group with a 2nd leader from within group. They will then start from the sub-group location. If there are insufficient leaders then the ride numbers will be limited.

After Wednesday you will need to inform the Ride Leader if circumstances change so that you can’t attend, as the Ride Leader will be expecting the members on list

Cycling UK provides guidance for Ride Leaders
 

Looking Forward

This is the club’s first step towards resuming a ride program. We welcome any comments, suggestions and offers of help. Do contact Emma, Steve or any committee member with your thoughts. The committee will considering how expand the program and how we can assist new members to join in.
