Hi All,

We normally have a Boxing Day ride but this year there are two Boxing days 26th and the Bank holiday on the 28th so going for a medium-paced ride on the 27th the Sunday. I'll be leading a medium-paced ride from Winchester East Park and Ride car park, Garnier Rd, Winchester SO23 9NP starting at 10:00 and would welcome up to 5 other people to join me.

We will probably head out via Compton Down to Cheesefoot Head and back via Twyford Down and a possible coffee at the Handlebar cafe.

Riders from Tier 3 aand 4 reas please do not sign up – in line with Government advice to avoid unnecessary travel outside these areas we ask that members respect this advice and do not join the ride. Also if you have spent time in a Tier 4 Area in the past 10 days we would ask that you do not join the ride

Currently you must be a club member and spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Please reply to this post if you want to join the ride.

With the high number of asymptomatic cases being reported it is important you have a face covering in the event of a puncture or mechanical to reduce the risk of infecting any rider who may assist you, similarly they must also wear a face covering to protect you.

A reminder of the rules/guidelines to ensure we stay Covid safe follows. Note club rides are available for people who self-regulate in order to abide by them, ride leaders will not be policing them but if you consistently breach them you may be asked to leave the ride. They are there for your safety and the safety of others.

• 2m spacing at all times before, during and after rides, extending to 4m if riding in front or behind someone.
• Each rider must carry a spare tube in case of a puncture or suitable kit if riding tubeless.
• Each rider must have disposable gloves and a face covering in case of having to attend to falls. Carrying hand sanitiser is also strongly recommended.
• Follow the ride leaders directions in case of a puncture/fall to ensure the minimum number of people are involved.

See you on Sunday 27th December.
