Cycling UK Wantage

Important announcement (14th Sep 2020):

After a brief time with a higher limit, the latest government restrictions have led Cycling UK nationally to re-introduce a top limit of six riders per ride, effective immediately. However, thanks to great work by Jon and Karen Townsin and David Smith, we also have the rides calendar updated all the way to March 2021. Details of all rides and how to book your place can be found in the club calendar. We have drawn up a protocol to limit the risks associated with group riding. The main points are listed below:
  • All rides need to be pre-booked on a weekly basis. Details of when bookings open for each ride can be found in the calendar. Please don't turn up for a ride in the hope of being accepted.
  • Rides are now limited to six riders including the ride leader.
  • Riders must maintain social distancing during rides and at stops. Leave a 'wheel's gap' between riders and/or cycle two abreast when road conditions allow.
  • Riders must be self reliant in terms of mechanicals (punctures, brakes, gears etc.) and water and snacks in the case of longer rides.
  • If you are feeling unwell or displaying any covid linked symptoms do not ride and put others at risk.

Cycling UK Wantage is a local member group of Cycling UK, the UK's national cyclists' organisation, covering Wantage and surrounding towns and villages.

We are a friendly group offering rides for all types of recreational rider predominantly on the roads and occasionally along the local by-ways and bridleways. We cater for beginners, families and more experienced riders – in fact anyone who enjoys a bit of fresh air and exercise on two wheels.

We operate a regular programme of rides and social events that are open to all members. Have a look at how we ride for what to expect on our rides.

We'd love to see you on our rides, so get in touch by emailing [javascript protected email address] and join in!
