Coronavirus – Update 30 July 2020
We are following the guidance of British Cycling, Cycling UK and other cycling bodies in guiding the club’s re-starting of activities. Our Friday evening Perdiswell Sessions for Young Riders are likely to re-start in September – no exact dates at present.
Evening road rides and other activities have now begun for current Members. To be added to our e-mail list, message: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Road Rides for 8 to 12s are usually about 10 – 15 miles on quiet country lanes. Usually any bike is fine. We also run from time to time a 12-15 year olds ride, either as a course designed to bridge from young rider to senior rider, or just a much faster and further ride for fun. These require group riding skills. Parents please use your own judgement as to whether your child is ready for the road, bearing in mind that Cycling UK says traffic awareness develops around the ages of 8 to 10. https://www.cyclinguk.org/article/cycling-guide/cycling-road-children
Our insurance is through Cycling UK. They stipulate that we can offer 3 club events to non-member guests. After this youth and adult riders need to be Members of WSJCC. Joining is simple – see our ‘about us’ page for all the membership categories and how to pay.
