Saturday Nibbles ride this weekend, come along to Moon and Sixpence in Hanwell, even if you dont fancy riding, come and say high anyway. If you fancy popping in, please complete the registration form and select “Not Cycling but will meet at the pub”. We’d love to have you all join us, but we need to know the numbers to cater for everyone.


Registration for Saturday ride also needs to be done by Wednesday 15th rather than Friday as would be normal.


Please also remember that the Mud Guard rule has come in to effect so unless it’s dry and forecast to remain dry, mudguards are required.

Although the general rules have been relaxed, we are retaining the registration process and keeping the group sizes down.

2 Taster rides are available, so come and get hooked with riding with “the stars”

Please remember you need to register at least 24 hours before the ride. Registration can be done here; Pre Registration Link

All rides are subject to the updated Covid-19 Ride Protocols and can be found here; Ride Protocols

As we will meet in Peoples’ Park, please ensure you do not cycle in the park and be respectful of other users of the park.

Please locate your nominated Ride Leader and congregate with riders in your allocated group.

You must not take part in any club ride if you feel unwell, have any Covid-19 symptoms or suspect that you may have been exposed to someone who has, or if you live or work with someone who has started self-isolating in the last 14 days. This is the primary means of not infecting other riders or volunteers and must be adhered to.
