Sunday 19th July - Fast group ride from Selborne

Post by Pete » Fri Jul 10, 2020 9:25 pm

Hi All,


I’ll be leading a medium ride from Selbourne (near Alton) starting at 10:00 and would welcome up to 5 other people to join me. 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.

More details to follow, as I'll need to recce this one as its a while since I've been. It's a great area though and quite hilly!

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.


Thanks for your help with this.

Hi Paul, be good to have you along. There's a big car park somewhere off the main road through the town, I think its a pub one. I'm going to recce the whole thing one night this week (probably Thurs), as the car park is the least of my worries!

I am given to believe that there is a car park in the middle of Selborne on the High St and probably next to the Selborne Arms Pub.

I won't be joining you.

I went, its very hilly :shock: And yes the car park is a big public one behind the Selborne Arms (I always thought it was the pub's own one!). Quite a few cars there though, so it could get busy.

Welcome on-board Craig :D now three places left. Don't be pub off by the "fast" thing, its a replacement for the "fast group" ride, but I don't think anyone will be going very fast up some of those hills!

Hi Pete

I don’t think are selling this. No one will be fast “up those hills”! :)

See you Sunday.

Paul
