Thursday Coffee Pot - Bike Bus
COVID 19 We are organising rides in line with guidance from Cycling UK and the Government. You will need to book in advance so we can organise groups and maintain a record. This record will be used to contact you if anyone in your group should later test positive or show symptoms of Covid 19. If you are feeling unwell please stay home.
It's important that we continue to follow guidance on controlling Coronovirus; In particular, the need for washing hands before eating, maintaining social distancing and wearing masks. This is important as some of our members could be classified as vulnerable. Click here for Risk Assessment
Further advice on cycling during the COVID 19 outbreak can be found here
The table below outlines our planned rides and ride schedule. Riders can join at a location that best suits them.
The Exeter BikeBus usually has three start times at ten minute intervals, with a maximum group size of eight. This aids group management and limits the frustration caused to drivers.
The BikeBus runs at an easy pace and aims that no one is ever left behind, however, when booking please note that the earlier groups are steadier than the last group. Please book in advance, either by clicking on the link in the table or contacting Lyndsay (email email@example.com)
Also please use the booking system, even if you are not joining a Bike Bus, this helps enormously in advising cafes of likely numbers.
Please book by Wednesday midday. Bookings after this may not be accepted.
The rides start from Exeter Quay (Piazza Terracina) and West Hill.

The Small Print - The Bike Bus is primarily organised for Members of Cycling UK and for those new to leisure cycling who would like to try out cycling in company. For insurance and liability reasons regular riders are expected to be members of Cycling UK. Newcomers who wish to try out the Bike Bus can join up to three rides without taking out membership but are required to complete a Guest Rider Registration Form for each ride.
