Riding in a group requires consideration for others in the group. Our riding guidelines are essential reading prior to coming out on the ride to ensure safety for yourself and the other riders. https://www.cyclinguk.org/group/page/guidelines-safe-riding
At any turns, make sure the person behind sees you. Please take note of my phone number 0778 6662943 in case you get separated from the group.
Please ensure your bike is roadworthy, a nd that you carry 2 spare inner tubes and tools.
In accordance with good riding practice you should carry emergency contact details both on your person (card in wallet/purse, ICE on mobile) and in your bike bag.
While experienced group members will always give assistance and advice to other riders ultimately you are responsible for yourself and making your own way home. Having said that hopefully no-one would be left in a situation of not knowing how to get home .
An attendance sheet will be completed on the morning. The ride is primarily for Cycling UK members . However non-members are welcome to attend, but would be expected to join Cycling UK after 3 rides.
I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday.
