Approx 125 miles in total.
There are no restrictions on how many can join the ride, but we ask that you please register by emailing Jason at firstname.lastname@example.org so we may still undertake ‘track and trace’ and bring your membership card on the day.
*Weather* : If the prior overnight temperature falls below 3C degrees, then this event will automatically be cancelled.
*COVID* All Club Ride-Outs are governed by current government Covid19 restrictions. If within 10 days after attending the ride you subsequently become ill or test positive then please notify the club via email ‘email@example.com‘
One of the riders will need to Back-Mark so any volunteer for this please advise the ride leader when you register for the ride, if you have an orange Hi-Viz please bring it with you, or one may be provided on the day, or dependant on the limited size of the group and alternative back-marker may be agreed.
Back-Marker System: Please make sure you are fully conversant with the rules of the “BACK-MARKER SYSTEM“. Following these correctly is vital to the smooth running of the day & reduces the risk of losing someone or everyone. Details of the BM system are on our Southernriders.org website. If you’re unsure on the day, ask one of the attending Ride Leader. They will be more than happy to clarify any issues you have.
Hi-Viz: If you wear hi-viz, please ensure it is not Orange as this is reserved for the ‘back-marker’ during our ride-outs. We appreciate you may normally wear an orange hi-viz whilst riding. However, some found it confusing when in the middle of the group to see two or more riders with the orange hi-viz.
So, in an effort to avoid confusion and markers leaving their post prematurely ONLY the back-marker to wear orange hi-viz.
