Sociable bike rides with cafe stops, around the Manchester area. Varied routes - on road, off road, and mixed terrain.
Velo 1750 is run by Mike and Susan as unpaid volunteers, and most rides are planned and led by Mike. Mike and Susan are British Cycling qualified ride leaders, but most of Velo1750 rides are “Ride Social” rides, not “Guided Rides”. So you are responsible for your own cycling behaviour and safety.
We have operated Velo1750 without formal rules. We prefer to get along without hard and fast rules. However, some issues have caused concern:
Firstly, please treat the group with respect. If you book a place, then find you need to cancel it, please try to cancel well in advance. That way, someone else has chance to take the place. Please don’t ask Mike to book your place, or to cancel your place. If a ride is full, then join the ‘waiting list’. Please don’t turn up without booking a place.
Secondly, group cycling.
Have regard to the Highway Code. Also, if you don’t know the ‘National Standard’ for cycling, go and look it up, or get some tuition from TfGM.
Please don’t cut up your fellow cyclists. Never weave in and out. If you wish to overtake, do so courteously on the right hand side.
Let's keep cycling safely and happily!
Susan and Mike
