Barnet Cyclists’ events

In the light of official guidelines concerning Covid-19, and the emphasis they have put on social distancing, it is necessary for us to cancel events in the near future.

We are cancelling rides and indoor meetings from immediate effect until further notice. Once it is safe, we will post details of rides and events on this website.

Sensible cycling on your own is still possible – even desirable!

Stay safe.

 

 

 

RIDE REMINDER: Sunday 15th March: London

A chance to get into London by circuitous means – just follow Malcolm. Ride from Tally Ho to Kensal Green for a coffee stop at the Sainsbury’s. Then, using the canal, we will make our way to Paddington basin for lunch. After that there will be a visit to Two Temple Place (near Blackfriars). This is a chance to visit the exhibition and/or have a cup of tea. (Admission is free – and it’s a great building to visit).

Then head back to King’s Cross station for trains north – or ride back if feeling energetic.

Meet: 10am Tally Ho, North Finchley N12    and 10.15 at East Finchley Library

Ride Leader: Malcolm Nightingale 07538 402147

Please remember to bring a spare inner tube in case you have a puncture and some basic tools that fit your bike.  Remember your lights in case it is getting gloomy going home after rides.
