01/01/2021 (updated 25/2) - Covid Tier4 / 5 Notice

Following the recent COVID announcements and Northamptonshire moving up to Tier 4 and 5 this is just a brief summary of what this means for the club cycling activities:-

All club, group and recreation programme activities in England in ‘Stay at home’ Tier 4 areas are suspended.

Exercise and recreation:-

People can exercise outdoors or visit some public local outdoor places, such as parks, the countryside accessible to the public. You can continue to exercise alone, or in a public outdoor place with your household, support bubble, or with one other person if you maintain social distancing.

Ride routes are available to use at your own discretion and you can choose to ride the route solo or with one “socially distanced other”,.

We all need a little bit of motivation I guess!!
