Dear All
First of all a very Happy New Year to everyone – let’s hope there’s lots of opportunity for you all to enjoy cycling this year.
Our upcoming sessions:
Tuesday 3 Jan: Cancelled (due to sickness and low numbers)
Friday 6 January 10am and 11am: if you’ve not yet booked please contact Jennifer on
Tuesday 10 January 10am: Our Tuesday sessions have been very quiet over the holiday period but we plan to continue with them and promote them further to increase numbers. Please remind everyone you know that we run sessions on both Tuesday and Friday mornings.
Please send all booking requests to and please book no later than midday the day before (and preferably earlier).  If you have any booking queries, please read see the page Coming to a Session on our website which explains how to submit a consent form (for new participants only) and how to pay online.
Many hospitals, including those in our area, have declared critical incidents
due to overwhelming demand from people with Covid or Flu and shortage of staff due to sickness.  As reported in today’s press, waiting times in A&E are dangerously long.  To reduce the risk of anyone needing urgent hospital treatment, we want to ensure we are taking appropriate precautions.  Although we are outside, we again recommend social distancing and using masks when this isn’t possible.  Please do not attend a session if you have any cold/flu/covid symptoms – many people are suffering a nasty bout of flu. We will also try to ensure everyone takes extra care to avoid accidents whilst cycling.
Hand gel will be available for you to use and we will also sanitize cycles again between users.


We aim to open regardless of the weather (unless there’s a serious weather warning). The weather forecast was very wet last Friday but we only had light rain for a while and the rest of the morning was almost dry.   If we have to close we will email and put a note on the website. Don’t forget to wrap up warm and bring gloves and bring waterproofs just in case! Hot drinks also available.
