Covid 19 and SPOKES Rides

Our rides are planned taking account of government and British Cycling Guidance.  We are monitoring the guidance and adapting to changes.  Currently rides are limited to a maximum of 6 riders, including the Ride Leader, and are socially distanced.  Face covering is optional.  Rides are restricted to SPOKES Members but occasionally opened to all a few days before the ride, if it is not full.  Refreshment stops vary, there may be no stop or a socially distanced picnic with own food or “take away” if available.  In some cases, there will be a café for those who want it, with a picnic option nearby.

Please follow Covid 19 government guidance on SPOKES Rides and if you have Covid 19 symptoms do not join the ride.  Aim to be self-sufficient on the ride, carrying all that you need for puncture and bike repair, first aid and refreshment.  

On rare occasions an event has to be cancelled. If you plan to attend an event please check on this web site immediately before the event that there have been no changes to the arrangements.
