Worcester & Malvern CTC Spring Newsletter April 2021

From your Chairman


Lockdown was imposed on March 23rd 2020 and all our Club activities ceased then. This did not mean that riding stopped. We were permitted to go out alone for daily exercise and I have seen many members out regularly in the lanes, including our most senior member - nonagerian Peter.

When restrictions were relaxed to permit 2 to ride together, many have arranged to meet up and ride in the 'local area'. Now that rides of up to 6 are permitted, Cycling UK has stated that Club group rides are again possible and Martin Staines has already published on the Calendar and led a couple of rides (thank you Martin).

However, the Club remains in a dormant state after this challenging year. It needs to be resuscitated as the regulations are relaxed but we can only do this with Members' active support (i.e YOU!). Our cycling touring club can only exist if it arranges regular rides and for that we'll need a greater number of us all to start to offer to lead rides, especially at the weekend.

If you are willing to lead a ride, contact our Rides Coordinator Rob Taylor
