Corona Virus Statement

Hi club members,

Based on recent guidance information provided by British Cycling we have updated our club rides and events.

As you may know, all racing in the UK (as well as everywhere else) has been postponed or cancelled. This also sadly applies to our Open TT and initial part of the evening TT series. In line with this the club will also cancel club rides until at least the end of April or until further advice is given.

It’s a massive shame but we have to do the right thing.  As you are aware, this is a rapidly changing situation so please keep up-to-date with the latest government and BC guidance.

Stay safe and look after yourselves and families.

The Committee
