We regret to announce that in line with Cycling UK guidance, we have taken the decision to suspend our monthly GoBike rides until further notice.
Current advice does outline that while group rides are not advised, cycling individually is safe. In an open letter sent out on Tuesday to the UK Government, 16 leading academics have outline why “Walking and cycling can be compatible with social distancing if people are responsible.” The World Health Organisation have also given it a green light.
Cycling is also a really good way to continue to get around without using public transport. Be sure to remember to wash your hands and also your cycling gloves if you wear them. If you’re riding with a friend, advice is to keep two meters apart. Keeping active through exercise can help avoid adding pressure onto the health service in the long run and is great for your health and well being.
We will let you know when these are back up and running but in the mean time GoBike hopes that you all stay healthy and positive over the coming while.
