Let’s be part of the solution. Ride sensibly

Extract from British Cycling advice below:

Riding a bicycle is a generally low-risk activity, but with our health and emergency services under such intense pressure it is important that we all take steps to manage risk wherever we can. Please only ride on routes you know well, that are close to home and that are well within your ability level; this is a time for calm recreation, not for challenging yourself.

All club activities now cancelled

Updated 24/3/20

In these unprecedented times, the committee have agreed that all club activities (coached, non coached and events) are now cancelled. Aligned with our governing bodies this will be until the 30th June.

The Paul Kirk Sportive due to take place on the 19th April and Brigg Bomber /Tri are all cancelled

We will keep you informed as and when the situation changes.

Keep safe

The way tasters sessions operate is changing

From April we will be putting in place induction days for anyone looking to join the club.

For run and swim coached sessions the club is to move towards dedicated dates within the month whereby potential new members can come along and get a full introduction into the club prior to their first taster sessions commencing.

The aim is to deliver an improved ’welcome to LincsQuad’ providing a fuller understanding of the club, the training programme’s we offer, what LTPD means for youth members and their parents plus how to become a member should they wish.

As such the current approach were potential new members may attend a taster session on any date will cease. This has been found to be very disruptive for session registration as well as a distraction for the coaches in starting a session.

If you know anyone wishing to join in the near future please ensure they contact Angelia Barker to register for the Induction by emailing to LincsquadMembership@gmail.com

Christian Brown Charity Ride, now taking place on the 1st March

Once again we’ll all be riding out in Christian’s memory from The Gamekeeper Scotter. 

Christian passed away on the 18th February 2013. He was involved in a serious cycling accident and airlifted to Hull Royal Infirmary in a critical condition from which he unfortunately never recovered.

This is an unsupported charity/social ride were everybody is welcome, whichever club you ride with, and everyone rides at their own pace.

Please bring along money to make a donation to the Notts and Lincs Air Ambulance, who came to Chris’s aid after his accident.

A photo call in the Gamekeeper carpark will take place at 9:30am for all riders with a roll-out from 9:45am following the Two Bridges route (Keadby and Gainsborough).

The Gamekeeper will be serving up Sausage and Chips afterwards whilst we all raise a glass to Christian. As usual LincsQuad will pay for the food but please let us know how many servings we need to reserve by completing the registration form.  Entries may be for groups as well as solo riders.
