I hope you are all keeping safe and well (and vaccinated!)  I’m happy to report that everything seems to be on track to allow us to resume WSCC group rides as from Monday (29 March).

Ride numbers will be limited to groups of 6 and of course we will all need to continue to take care, carry masks and to observe social distancing rules.  I know that the Wednesday G3 and G4 groups (at least) will be going back to using the Spond app to advertise rides and to keep a track on numbers.  If other groups would like a reminder about how to use Spond, or help in setting this up, please let me or Phil know and we will be happy to assist.  A big thanks is due to all the ride leaders who have volunteered to make the group of 6 rides work.

For the first couple of weeks (up to 12 April) we will be reliant on takeaway food and drink options only, but a large number of cafés and pubs are offering this service.  I’d encourage you all to view and amend the google spreadsheet on food and drink options that club members have created here

Save the date – WSCC Annual General Meeting, Saturday 8 May

I’d also like to draw your attention to one other important WSCC matter.  The committee has fixed a date for the club’s AGM, to take place at 5pm on Saturday 8 May.  Due to the continued restrictions on meeting together, we will be doing the AGM remotely, on Zoom.  At least we have all had plenty of time to gain familiarity with this platform over the past year.

More details will be circulated closer to the time (after our next committee meeting on 15 April), but it would be good to see as many of you as possible at the AGM, so please put a note in your diaries for this date and time.  If there are any questions on this, please feel free to ask.

In the meantime, I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible out on a club ride over the next few weeks.
