There are new rules & guidelines for you to read & follow below.
Covid-19 Ride Rules
1: Do not attend if you are suffering from any Covid - 19 symptoms
2: Maximum of 15 people on any ride including Ride Leaders. Rule of 6 to be followed before and after the ride and also at any stops.
3: Riding 1M apart with mitigation is now recommended. Mitigation is riding outdoors & not being face to face. This means we can now ride in pairs when appropriate.
4: Participants to be 2M apart when face to face, ie at cafe stops, start & finish, maintenance & any other non-riding face to face encounters.
5: Participants should have hand sanitiser with them & take tissues on the ride.
6: Masks are not recommended
8: Try to avoid sharing equipment.
9: If First Aid is required, Leaders should use gloves, glasses, a face mask & a body covering such as a disposable apron or a waterproof jacket that is cleaned or disposed of afterwards.
10: If CPR is required mouth to mouth should not be given unless it is to a child.
Ride Leaders can't police some of this during a ride - It is up to the participants to read, listen to, respect & follow the rules. If they choose not to they will be asked to leave the ride.
This will be a lovely ride from Whalley riding to Ribchester.
From there it's on to Longridge & then Jeffrey Hill. We'll ride up the easier side - It's just a drag up - Then we'll enjoy the fabulous descent back to Whalley, calling at Chipping where we'll have a stop for coffee - and even cake!!

We'll ride at a steady pace of 12 mph on this ride and we'll keep our pace at a level so that we can all stay together & have a really pleasant ride. This is a lumpy ride from Whalley suitable for road bikes & hybrids with road tyres. If you are unsure of your bikes suitability, please get in touch before the ride. Please check your bike over the night before the ride, tyres inflated, all bolts tight, lubricated. Clothing, Helmet & lights checked & ready. Please ensure you have all the parts for your bike - pump, spare tube, multi tool. Your bike is your responsibility! Phone, money too. You are your responsibility!
Please aim to be ready to ride 15 mins before the ride start time, getting away on time is good for everyone. It would be great to have some new & some familiar faces on this ride, you're all welcome & I look forward to riding with you.
