Group WhatsApp

A WhatsApp Group (EY-CTCriders)  has been set up for regular club Sunday and Thursday  riders -  please contact Beverley Dave with mobile number to be added. WhatsApp can often be used for messages and phone calls in areas without a phone signal as it uses a tiny amount of the phones data signal. When phone is connected to WiFi calls and photo messaging are free otherwise without WiFi it uses very small amounts of your data allowance.

It is necessary to have the WhatsApp Application loaded on your phone to be added to the group.

To be used to send out last minute changes to planned rides such as weather cancellations, planned ride lunch stop changes etc.

If it is necessary to contact a specific member of the group please send a direct message to them.
To reduce pings please note it is not necessary to confirm receipt or say you are not riding that day etc.

Please do not use it for sharing your thoughts on the world or for comments which are best suited for your Facebook and Twitter accounts.

New riders please make yourself known to Godfrey or Sheila or a member of the committee at the start point and swap mobile numbers, including emergency contact, and any relevant medical conditions.

NB: Eric also leads a third easy paced group, please contact a committee member for his contact details. EYCTC, don't, as a rule, publish personal contact details on the web site, use the web 'Contact' page to contact the club by email.


 

Chairman's Message

Conduct and Safe Riding

All cyclists are cordially invited to join the rides. Riders should carry at least a basic tool kit, waterproofs, drink, emergency food (e.g. energy bars or dried fruit) and from October to March, lights.

For the benefit of all riders, please remember these points for safe cycling in a group:-

  1. Never ride more than two abreast and in groups of more than 10.
  2. Give a verbal warning when approaching an obstruction, slowing down or stopping.
  3. Give warning of approaching traffic on narrow roads and single out.
  4. If you overtake a leader on a hill, wait at the top or at the first junction.
  5. If you have having difficulty with the pace, tell the leader.
  6. If you decide to abandon the ride and do your own thing – please tell someone.
