Club Rides

Sunday Club Rides

Group 3/4 riders meet at Ditchling Village Hall, 9.05 am to depart by 9.15 am.

IMPORTANT UPDATE
In response to the tighter Covid-19 “rule-of-six” rules introduced from 14th September the Nomads Sunday Club runs are being revised. It is important that we maintain social distancing and all try to adhere to the following guidelines which apply from Sunday 20th September onward.

The Sunday Club run start times will be 8:45 (G1/G2) and 9.15 (G3/G4). Please try to be punctual and don’t mill about at Ditching Village Hall. Form into a ride group (no more than six) immediately and set off on the ride.

If someone has as puncture or other technical problem don’t all crowd around.
At the coffee stop stay in the same group and do not intermingle with other groups.
Leave in the same group to return home.
