From our coach Andy

Hi everyone, 
Apologies for a late email this week, we have been awaiting results for Karen on a Covid test – thankfully it is negative. However, as a result of us not being able to get take away from Giggling Squid for her birthday (today) we will be doing that tomorrow – hence no S&C from me, sorry.
A huge thank you to Lynda (and Mike), Gemma and Karen who between them arranged the virtual awards evening last night and setup the online silent auction. A great evening with lots of entertainment. We look forward to an in-person event in 2021! Thanks also to Chris and John who gave great accounts of cycling on the road and virtually with the club. The silent auction will remain live until next Saturday use this link to see the items and get your bids in
Lockdown training continues with online sessions on Zoom and Zwift. Anyone interested in joining the TTT Zwift on Thursday, sign up in the poll and we will send you details of how to get involved.

Please continue to follow advice on hygiene, social distancing and lock down procedures:

  • Continue to train, as long as you display no symptoms of any illness
  • Be aware of the training stress on your body. It is not advised to increase training load or stress at this time – if in doubt, keep training but don’t over do it
  • Exercise and training are advised as a way to maintain mental health, we are used to it and rely on it as a stress relief
  • Eat healthily and maintain a balanced diet, especially when training
  • Don’t train or meet up in groups greater than 6 – we still have to follow social distancing guidelines
Club members must not attend a ride or group session if they
  • have any symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste)
  • have tested positive for coronavirus
  • you live with someone who has symptoms or has tested positive
  • someone in their support bubble has symptoms or has tested positive
  • if they have been asked to remain at home by the UK Government test and trace system

Anyone who meets any of the above criteria must follow government guidance on self-isolating and inform those they have been in contact with – if you need to inform the club, please contact Micheal Smyth our Welfare Officer.
