Ride Updates are now on Facebook and WhatsApp

Ride Leaders will do their best to post updates and ride cancellations on the Fleet Cycling Facebook page.
Posts to that page will also appear in the next column of this page, and on the HOME > UPCOMING RIDES page of this site. Make one of these a favourite on your smartphone.

Regular ride leaders: please contact Andrew Perkins if you do not have permission to post on that Facebook page, and he will add you to the permissions list.

We also have a Fleet Cycling Facebook Groups page on which any Facebook user can post. However, due to the 2018 privacy changes by Facebook, we can no longer display posts from that Groups page on this website.

We also suggest joining the WhatsApp group for ride conditions, information and general cycling banter. Please contact Saty M from the ride leaders page with your name and mobile number to be added to the group. Please note that any content in the WhatsApp group is between the group members and not affiliated with Fleet Cycling.

As many of you are aware, the Government has updated its guidance to allow up to 6 people from different households to exercise together as long as they maintain a minimum of 2 metres distancing; while several sports are highlighted cycling is not specifically mentioned. Cycling UK’s guidance is that groups of up to 6 people cycling, as long as the distancing rules are maintained, are allowed and insured; British Cycling will continue the suspension of any group cycling, including coaching, instructing, sportives and leading club rides, until July 4th.

Cycling UK and British Cycling will be reviewing their guidance on a frequent basis as per Government updates.

Based on the above guidelines and advice, and after careful consideration, Fleet Cycling have taken the decision to continue the suspension of formal group cycling.

We will continue to monitor the Government’s guidelines as well as CUK's and British Cycling’s; as soon as it’s deemed safe to restart formal group cycling we will do so.

Be safe out there!

Hi all. All Fleet Cycling Group rides and events are now cancelled until further notice. This means that there will be no ride leader insurance available.

The rides should now have been removed from the website.

I appreciate this is very disappointing but it follows the directive from Cycling UK and the wider government advice.

If anyone needs to have a chat about this please drop me a message.

Hope everyone stays safe and well.
