In these different times we ask you to bring your own face mask; you will only have to wear it in the event of first aid being required. Please ensure you bike is a safe working condition with two working brakes. For all our rides you should bring at least a spare inner tube and a pump. If your wheels are bolted on then a spanner that fits the nuts is also essential. Helmets are not compulsory for adults but most definitely recommended. All children should wear a properly fitted helmet. You should dress appropriately for the weather, and consider bringing your mobile phone along with cash or card for the coffee stop. In these times it may not be possible to stop for tea or coffee so please bring a drink in plastic bottle and perhaps a snack bar. NB some cafes are only accepting CARD payment for the time being.

We welcome new comers to our ride group, but we want you to enjoy the ride so please consider the route, distance and terrain. If this ride is likely to be a bit difficult then check out our other rides which we put on for newbies and returners and join us on something easier
