    Thanks David. Sorry I didn't get there until you were all leaving... the dreaded double puncture!

    If the other ride leaders could send me a list of people they rode with at some point, I can tick them off and get them signed up!

    Hi James,

    I should have any memberships processed today or tomorrow... I'll try to get them done before driving back to London from Norfolk this evening but currently have quite a lot to get through so please bear with me. I'll send you (and everyone else who's applied and attended this session) a confirmation email with more info as soon as I get to process everything.

    Thanks,

    Sally

    Hi, this is a ride from last year so please don't show up on the 12th of September hoping to find us there. There are a few sessions taking place over the next month or so but we're really heavily subscribed due to a backlog of people wanting to join post lockdown. Lots of people drop out last minute though so keep an eye out.

    Hi Jerry,

    I've just popped your email address through again, so hopefully it's working now. Please log out and back in again if nothing is showing up immediately and let me know if you can see the whole forum or not.

    Thanks

    Exactly that. When you join the club the email address you use to apply via British Cycling is what's given the forum permissions once you're approved as a member.

    @JerryTate you should only need your email address to log in - we don't use any kind of membership number. Please let me know if you're having issues getting access.

    Hi Chris,

    If you check on the forum a bit closer to the weekend, people will start to post rides that you can join. At the moment you should avoid turning up to the park without signing up to a ride. This is due to the current guidelines on group number and our club need to be able to track and trace riders should we need to, so we have to make sure that everyone is registered against a particular ride.

    Thanks,

    Sally

    Hi Tim,

    Because we need to be able to operate a track and trace system, we can't currently offer non members attendance on our standard Sunday club rides. Normally they could come along to 3 Sunday rides as a guest (no other weekday rides due to insurance reasons) but as they aren't able to sign up to rides on offer via the forum, we are unable to manage this. I am recommending that everyone join a group skills or Intro ride to get a feel for the club. Unfortunately these also rely on the kindness of the membership to volunteer so that we can clear the backlog of prospective members wanting to join or get a taste of what the club has to offer. The more volunteers we can get, the more rides we can put on.

    We welcome any suggestions on how we can manage this, but at the moment I don't have the capacity to keep on top of the sheer volume of emails coming in, let alone setting up a system by which we can track and trace non members should there be a member on the ride who exhibits covid symptoms shortly afterwards.

    Hi Anca,

    As Stephen said, at the moment there's not an awful lot going on with regard to club activities, due to the ongoing pandemic. We're waiting for further updates from British Cycling but currently the advice is rides can take place in groups of up to 6 but preferably on closed roads because social distancing of 2m has to be maintained throughout. As you can imagine this is pretty impossible on London roads so we are still suspending all club activities. We will be following all government guidance, so as things ease we will be looking to reinstate club rides where we can.

    Rides are being organised amongst members on our club forum, these are not sanctioned club rides and riders accept all responsibility for these rides. Social distancing still needs to be maintained at 2m between all riders on these rides as well. We are also only allowing these rides to take place where they've been organised in a way that we can track and trace riders should any develop Covid symptoms.

    I'm keeping a list of people who want to be contacted when our rides are back up and running and I'd be happy to add your email address to that if you'd like? Just drop me an email on [email protected]

    Thanks,

    Sally

    Hi, happy to give you an update but I'm afraid there's not much of one to give! The recent relaxation from British Cycling only has really changed in one way; Previously people could cycle in groups of 2 as long as they were socially distant throughout, now people can cycle in groups of up to 6 but the social distancing still has to be maintained.

    Given that it is incredibly difficult to maintain social distancing whilst on a bike, especially on the busy roads that we have in London, we are still not holding any club rides. Club members are free to organise their own rides in groups up to 6 but they are not club organised activities.

    I'll happily keep this thread updated as to when this changes but in the mean time if you want to drop me an email on [email protected] and I'll add you to a list of people to contact when club activities resume.

    Thanks,

    Sally
