As members will be well aware, England is currently subject to lockdown to try to halt the spread of Covid 19 . There do not appear to have been any exceptions made (as yet at least) for group sports, and the rule is that you can only meet one other person outside for recreation. Unfortunately the committee has therefore had to make the decision to suspend club group rides, and this will need to remain in place until further notice. As you can meet one other person outside it would appear that riding in twos will still be permitted. The Government guidance advises to stay Local. British Cycling have indicated that they are making urgent enquiries of the government about what they count as “local” for road cycling.
The committee really regrets having to suspend group riding again in the club and shares what many members must be feeling, that we can’t wait for this to be all over.
Since 1881 Rye & District Wheelers have been the cycling club for riders in Kent and East Sussex. We welcome riders of all ages, abilities and cycling interests.
If you’re competitive, the Club can boast county, national and even European champions. We compete in time trials, road racing and have an active social side.
If you’re just looking to enjoy getting out on the bike, we organise a number of weekly club runs for all levels of experience and fitness.
The Club has a great social side with day rides that take in some favourite eating and drinking places. We also run trips to France to ride out with our sister club from Ardres near Calais.
There are major social events in the Calender that give the opportunity for Members and Families to mix those being; The Annual Dinner and Awards Night in January, The Summer BBQ and The Christmas Ride/Lunch.
The Club also organises trips around the U.K. and Europe to take part in sportives ranging from the Spring Monuments of Flanders, Roubaix and Liege to summer alpine events such as the Maratona dles Dolomites.
Our Friday Night TT’s are held during the Season on the Q33 course, for details of signing on and start locations please follow link below;
