Covid 19 update

British cycling have updated their guidance for club activities so take a look at their web page:-https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/about/article/20200618-about-bc-news-British-Cycling-announces-reintroduction-of-club-and-group-activity-0

Covid 19 update
Posted on 2020-06-14 by Janice Wakefield

Following the announcement that 6 people from different households can exercise together British Cycling have issued this information: While the Government guidance now permits groups of up to six to ride together, British Cycling believes that the need to maintain a two-metre distance while riding as a group of six may present practical difficulties and potential risks. For this reason, we would strongly encourage riders to continue to cycle in smaller groups at present, and only ride in a group of six if they are absolutely sure that it is safe to do so (for example, in a park). We would also like to reiterate to cyclists the need to be mindful of keeping a two-metre distance when overtaking other cyclists and from pedestrians who may be walking on pavements at the side of the road. If the Government allows groups of six to ride together, does that means the suspension on club and group rides remains in place? Yes. Last week (Wednesday 27 May) we announced that all formalised group and club activity (including club runs, HSBC UK Breeze rides and similar) would be suspended until Saturday 4 July, and this suspension remains in place. As detailed in our earlier statement, we will review this on a fortnightly basis, considering guidance from across the relevant devolved administrations, and giving two weeks’ notice of any changes. We are now working on new guidance for clubs and Ride Leaders on how they can safely lead group rides while maintaining social distancing, and will share this at the earliest possible opportunity.

Covid 19 update
Posted on 2020-05-29 by Janice Wakefield

British cycling have announced the suspension of national and international level racing until 1st September 2020. Regional racing and Sportives are suspended until 1st August 2020. CTT events are suspended until 30th June 2020 and we are awaiting further guidance on how time trialling could be resumed after that. TLI cycling, under whose rules we run our club road races, have cancelled all events until further notice.

Event cancellations due to Covid 19
Posted on 2020-03-18 by Janice Wakefield

Hi All. TLI, CTT and Cycling UK have all cancelled their permissions to continue holding any events that they cover. The advice includes slightly different "potential end dates" ranging from mid May through to the end of May. So to offer some form of clarity LRCC are cancelling all our planned cycling events including club nights and social rides until and including Sunday 31st May. All national bodies are to review the situation at some point in the future. However it may mean the suspension of events continues pass the 31st May, we will keep you posted. As a fitter active part of society it is easy to look at our own needs to keep cycling. While this is not good news I feel we must act responsibly and not put either ourselves or members of our families or indeed the wider public at any risks. Re the Clubs Handicap Road events we are hoping to run events 3 and 4. So refunds will be organised for those who have entered via Rider HQ. Again we will update as we know more.

Bring and Buy CANCELLED
Posted on 2020-03-10 by Janice Wakefield

Due to the Covid 19 outbreak we have been advised that the fire station are suspending the use of their community room until further notice. This means that we will not be able to hold our club nights there. This Monday's Bring and Buy sale is therefore cancelled.

Club Night 2nd March
Posted on 2020-02-28 by Janice Wakefield

Hi All. This Monday at the club room we are having a session on marshalling. To be eligible for overall awards in the club TT Leagues, riders must marshal/help at at least 1 event. 15 points are awarded (up to a maximum of 30 points) each time you help. Attendance at the meeting is not mandatory, it is just to give you a better understanding of what is involved. Also we do need quite a few marshals at our Club Handicap road race league events. They are planned to be held on 4 Thursday evenings on a 5 mile circuit near Binbrook. The session will also offer advice on these events.

CLUBS HANDICAP ROAD RACE SERIES 2020
Posted on 2020-02-15 by Janice Wakefield

Hi All As part of the clubs 50th year celebrations we are set to run a series of handicap road events for 2020. The prime focus of this series is to offer up an opportunity for as many of you as possible, including those who may be new to the sport and not yet tried a road event, to have a go in a safe environment of smallish sized groups (say max 6 ) consisting of riders of similar ability. We received an excellent response to the survey that Rob Atkinson posted late last year, so plans are being finalised for 4 events starting on Thursday 30th April and 4 weekly after that. All interested members who want to ride and or help are invited to our club room this Monday 17th Feb. We will explain the format and how to enter etc and try to answer any questions or concerns. Meeting to commence prompt after the normal club start time of 7.30pm. If you cannot attend but are expecting to ride or offer help please let me know by E mail or phone. This will help to get an idea of numbers of riders. contact Steve 07870 271694

Cycling Time Trials New Regulation
Posted on 2020-01-28 by Janice Wakefield

For several years there has been a recommendation that riders have a rear light when competing in time trials. From 2020 it will be mandatory for all riders competing in open or club time trials to have a working rear light, either flashing or constant, affixed to the rear of their machine. Without a rear light you be unable to start.
