The Saturday and Sunday social rides are the mainstay of recreational road cycling in the club.
Changes which came into force on Monday 14th September and temporary restrictions announced on the 9th October have affected arrangements for cycling activities.
Organised rides must not go into neighbouring areas affected by the central belt measures therefore the outline routes shown below are not valid for the time being.
It is also not intended that social rides will include a group cafe stop.
Members are of course at liberty to leave the club organised ride if they wish to visit a cafe independently.
For insurance purposes only members are able to ride and all members must book a place via the club's activity calendar for Trace and Protect purposes.
We have 4 groups scheduled for Saturdays and 2 on Sundays with places limited on each ride.
