Cycling UK Louth and Covid-19

Club rides and activities are temporarily suspended.

*UPDATE TUESDAY 23RD MARCH 2021*

Roadmap Out of Lockdown

New Rules WEF Monday 29th March and guidance from Cycling UK

From Monday 29th March, social contact rules will change to ‘The Rule of Six’, that is to say that outdoor gatherings (including in Private Gardens) of either 6 people or 2 households will be allowed.

The roadmap also indicates (para 102) that organised sports can restart. Cycling UK have confirmed that Cycling UK Group cycle rides of up to 15 can go ahead under the organised sport and activity exemption. However, this number should be treated as an absolute maximum and that discretion and common sense should be taken, depending on for example the number of ride leaders available and on the routes to be taken.

*NOTE* that although group RIDES of up to 15 can go ahead, if stopping for refreshments – self-catering or a take away, the ‘Rule of Six’ still applies whilst following all the appropriate social distancing rules.

Cycling UK Louth club rides are likely to restart after Easter.

We are a friendly and mixed group of cyclists from the Louth area, also encompassing much of East Lincolnshire.

We organise regular weekly rides plus occasional weekends away. 

We also meet socially (off the bikes!) to plan our rides, hold occasional 'social events' such as a BBQ and to enjoy an annual dinner.

Unless otherwise stated, rides will start from the Louth Meridian Leisure Centre in Wood Lane (LN11 8SA). 

Additionally, rides can easily be joined or left at either our coffee or lunch stops.

Winter rides, unless otherwise stated will start at 10.00 am and Summer Rides at 09.30 am.

Each year we organise a few car-assisted rides from other starting points such as the Humber Bridge so make sure you check our RIDES LIST,

social media (FACEBOOK / TWITTER) or use our contact facilities before setting off.

More detailed information about us can be found HERE.

If you just want a pleasant ride in good company or have an interest in campaigning for improved facilities for cyclists COME AND JOIN US. You will be made most welcome. All of our activities are Covid-19 compliant.

If you are not a Cycling UK Member and wish to join us on one of our organised rides, you'll need to fill out a 'Guest Registration' form which will be available on the day.

ADVICE FOR NEW RIDERS

If you are new to cycling or are returning after a break, Cycling UK has some great advice:

https://www.cyclinguk.org/article/campaigns-guide/cycling-tips-24-essent...

It is advised to check out the suggested route and make a judgement  as to whether you are fit and healthy enough to participate in this activity.  Your cycle should be in a safe, legal and rideable condition.

You’ll need some tyre levers, puncture repair kit/spare inner tube and (mini)-pump. We think it’s handy to have some emergency cash and a card too.
