Martin Down Ride 29th August

Post by IanTaylor » Fri Aug 20, 2021 8:39 pm

Hi All,

The next ride is from Martin Down SU 037 201, w3w ///drooling.penny.hinted

THIS IS NOT THE USUAL START POINT. ACCESS IS FROM THE A354. SEE THE RIDES PAGE FOR DETAILS

As you will be aware many of the legal rquirements have been dropped but were translated into recommendations (see below). Following the advice of our affiliated cycling organisation, whilst numbers attending a ride may be unlimited, individual ride groups will be limited to 15. In practice this should not be a problem for us.

If you have tested positive for or are exhibiting symptoms of Covid, or feel unwell, you must not attend the ride.

PLEASE POST IF YOU ARE COMING and indicate if you are a non-member. Would potential ride leaders also post so we have you in the overall number.

AND

You are advised to wear face masks/coverings in crowded settings and be mindful that coronavirus is still endemic in the population, that the possibility of transmission still exists and that the virus can be contracted regardless of vaccination status. To this end we would ask that you continue to adhere to our amended guidelines to ensure we stay Covid safe:

Note club rides are available for people who self-regulate, ride leaders will not be policing the following 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 during 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 and have a great ride

I'll be there, and can lead a frisky medium paced ride if no-one else offers.

PLEASE NOTE WE ARE STARTING FROM A DIFFERENT CAR PARK THAN WE HAVE USED IN THE PAST CHECK THE LOCATION GIVEN ON THE RIDES PAGE ON THE WEBSITE AND ABOVE.

As no one is interested in day ride I'll join the faster medium group.

How about bringing sandwiches (as John has suggested) to have a picnic after?

Sue

Linda and John are offering a steady ride, ( ie. less than Pen's frisky medium and less than Sue's shortish day ride)

We will provide the advertised ride including " There will be some challenging uphills, fast downhills and panoramic ridgeways in this delightful area ".

Bring a sandwich ( you can always eat them at the end )
