Personal Health Notice

Recently the weather has been rather hot with not much wind and forecasts predict that we are due to have similar weather for the next few months as well and that is why is it extremely important that you protect yourself and stay hydrated while cycling.

If you are riding with us, please make sure you have one or more bottles of drink, sunscreen and sunglasses/a hat to help keep the sun off your face.

Please also try to wear appropriate clothing when cycling. We're aware that some of the lanes can be a little chilly sometimes but the heat is going to have the biggest impact while out riding.

Each rider is responsible for their own actions but we like to make sure that everyone can enjoy our rides fully so please take care.
