Coronavirus

Phil Wise - Wednesday, March 18, 2020

Your committee has been discussing the implications of coronavirus for the club, and we have agreed some significant, temporary changes.

 

As a club, we feel that we should follow government guidance, in line with the request for each of us to comply with the scientific advice to lower the peak of the pandemic. We are also mindful of the image of the club, and of cycling in general.

 

As a result, we have reluctantly concluded that we should suspend the Saturday ride for the foreseeable future.

 

We appreciate that smaller groups will still want to go out together. We would encourage you not to wear full club kit if you are riding as a group, as this wont be a club sanctioned ride and we want to avoid giving the impression that SDV isn’t taking this matter seriously.

 

I am sure that some of our regular cafes will still appreciate the support of cyclists, particularly if we are considerate towards their other customers (remember that we can be a bit sweaty and mucky!). Let's spread the word about which cafes are open on our facebook page.

 

We hope that the situation will get back to normal soon and it won’t be long till the club ride returns, along with racing, time trialling, sportives etc.

 

In the meantime, look after yourselves, stay strong and let us know about your rides on the club facebook page! Look out for updates and photos on the news section of the website.
