With the increasing rate of Covid infections in our region, and concerns about the risk of further infections over the year-end period, the committee has decided to suspend all formal WSCC rides with immediate effect, until further notice.

We are still permitted to cycle outdoors for leisure purposes, with no limits on duration or frequency.  However, almost all movement between the various Tier areas is prohibited.  Since the Government has now declared that from December 26, all of Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire fall into the Tier 4 category, the rules for residents in this area prohibit any mixing outdoors with more than one person from another household.  We do hope to be able to revise this stance soon in 2021, but clearly that must await better news on the control of the virus and/or the roll out of the vaccination programme.

In the meantime, all the members of the committee wish you a very Happy Christmas.
