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.

MEETING REMINDER: Thursday 27th February: Monthly Meeting – ride from Munich to Rome!

After business and coffee, we will hear from Helen and Ray on taking part in a ride from Munich to Rome last year.  Even a quick glance at an atlas tells you that this is a long way with lumps and bumps in the road (eg the Alps). Come and hear all about it – with pictures. Not to be missed!

Meet: 8pm Carey Hall, Trinity Church Centre, Nether Street, North Finchley N12.

All welcome.

MEETING REMINDER: Thursday 30th January: Monthly Meeting

First evening meeting of 2020. To start with we will deal with business as usual, have a cup of coffee with a chat and a chance catch up with what everyone has been doing. In the second half Ray Thorn will do ‘a show and tell’ about the bike he has adapted for night riding. And he does some extreme ‘night riding’!   Do come and share your tips for staying safe in the dark – bring any clothing and bits of gear you can recommend – or even advise not to waste time on!

NOVEMBER MEETING

Make it a ‘show-and-tell’ and bring along favourite winter clothing (bought any good gloves recently?) or any bits for the bike. All welcome.

MEETING REMINDER: Monthly Meeting: Thursday 26th September

After business and coffee, we would like to hear about your cycling adventures over the summer. And we need YOU to volunteer! We are looking for a few people to tell us about where they went cycling, what was it like, is it something they would recommend?  If you have photographs all the better and we can show these. They can be short chats – 5 or 10 mins would be great. We guarantee a friendly audience!

Please email Alison if you can help – alison.ewington@ntlworld.com  If you have photos we can project it would be good to send them in advance.

Meet: 8pm Carey Hall, Trinity Church Centre, Nether Street, North Finchley N12
