Marlborough Downs All Day Ride 10th October

Post by IanTaylor » Wed Sep 29, 2021 8:03 pm

The next ride is an all day ride on the Marlborough Downs so not suitable for beginners; time on the bike, with a stop for lunch, will be in the order of 5 hours and the distance likely to be in excess of 40km.

The meeting point is at w3w /// impressed.corrode.smarter

This is Hilliers Yard car park in Marlborough which is south of the High Street and accessed via the B3052 through the adjoining Figgins Lane car park. Expect to pay at either car park.

The ride will start off at 10:00 a.m. Usual protocols apply.

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

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.

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.

Have a great ride...

I can lead a medium ride - might head to Avebury for lunch and a visit to the stones. The ride will involve some different ridges to what we have done in the past Will post more info when the route is sorted.

I'm planning on leading a fast group.
If you are riding with me, I would suggest bring food for lunch. Though hope to have a pub stop, options are limited and often tables need to be prebooked, so come prepared and then you won't go hungry.

In terms of food for the medium group - suggest that you bring food as well - just encase we can not get into a pub or cafe.
