If you come on a ride, please read and follow our latest guidance, which is linked from this page:
London and some surrounding areas are now classified as Very High Risk (Tier 3): additional guidance for Wednesday rides is here.
Wednesday rides: In addition, Midweek Wayfarers rides require pre-booking in order to ensure sufficient group leaders are available. Details of the ride, with a contact for booking, are usually posted on the Wayfarers blog the preceding weekend. You are usually asked to book by Monday night so that groups can be published on Tuesday.
Saturday (Beginners) all-day rides: as above: these require pre-booking in order to form groups of six and allocate leaders. Details are published on the Beginners blog a few days before, and will include details of how and when to book. Regular weekly Beginners rides do not require pre-booking.
If you wish to get an idea of how they work in practice, see recent ride reports on our blogs.
