Monthly Programme

Welcome to Isis Cyclists, an informal member group of Oxford Cycling UK. We normally publish our monthly programme of rides on this page; however, with the country once again in lockdown we have abandoned our organised rides for the time being. However, you can still go out for rides either with members of your own household (bubble) or, as an individual, with one other person from another household. For ideas, visit our page featuring a selection of routes.

Cycling UK recently sought clarification from the Minister for Sport, Nigel Huddleston, on the question of ‘staying local’ in your rides. As a result, the guidance on the Cycling UK coronavirus Q&A page was updated in mid-February as follows (emphasis ours):

Cycling UK … encourages people to continue to cycle for exercise during the current lockdown, but to do so in a manner which minimises risk. In the absence of specific regulation on how far they can travel, cyclists should use their common sense: for example, avoiding crowded or narrow routes where social distancing is difficult to maintain, but also bearing in mind that you may put others at risk if you suffer an injury or mechanical problem far from home and require rescue. To minimise unnecessary travel, start and end your rides at home if this is practical; however, common sense may dictate that travelling a short distance to a more suitable location is reasonable.

Hopefully, it won’t be too long before we can restart organised outings. For guidance on safe cycling from Cycling UK, see the useful links below.
