Cycling Ulster has welcomed the recent Covid-19 restrictions easing which has enabled group training and competition to return in the North while similar relaxations will take place in Cavan, Donegal and Monaghan over the coming weeks.
Group training spins form a significant part of club activities. As well as the enjoyable social aspect that group spins offer, they also provide an opportunity for experienced members to pass on their knowledge, advice and skills to others.
Cycling Ulster take this opportunity to encourage members to continue to abide by the restrictions on maximum numbers in activities and request that clubs put an emphasis on ensuring that group spins maintain good etiquette and structure while on the roads.
The easing of restrictions means an increase in road traffic. Cycling Ulster continue to be engaged in road safety initiatives such as the PSNI’s Operation Close Pass.
The development of programmes such as Bike for Life in recent years has also given added support to clubs as new members can learn about safety on the road, riding in a group, bike maintenance and nutritional advice. Members can also train to become a Ride Leader which provides them with a qualification to lead group spins and knowledge to advise other members.
