Boltons Bench Ride & Christmas Lunch 5th December

Post by IanTaylor » Fri Nov 26, 2021 6:17 pm

The next ride from Boltons Bench, w3w///couriers.cycled.offhand SU 305 083, will be followed by a Christmas Lunch for those who wish to get festive.

Keep an eye on the board for details of booking the lunch. NB You can ride without going to the lunch but you don't know what you'll be missing.

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.

Thanks and have a great ride

Happy to lead a mildly spicy medium group, and will do my best to get you back in time for lunch, but I can't guarantee you won't be covered in mud :wink:

Hi All

I have booked my seat at the lunch table, but looking at the weather forecast 7 days ahead, at the moment 5 deg, (feels like 3 deg) at 10 am is no-feeling-in-the-fingers territory for me and I will probably not join the ride.

If the forecast improves, I will review my decision and may well ride as well as eat.

I'm coming.


We need a second leader for the medium group anyone want to give leading a go?
On the last couple of out of Forest rides we have gone as a single large group this does not work in the Forest.
