About Pop-up rides

Find out about riding under COVID restrictions here.

Individual ride leaders can create pop-up rides for any day and time. People can then ask the ride leader for permission to join their ride. Leaders have complete discretion who they invite to join. It is vital that you do not join a pop-up ride unless you are invited by the ride leader, or your name appears in the booking list shown for each ride.

If you receive an invitation, please do your best to join the ride because you might be taking a place that could have been used by someone else. Unless you have a good reason for not turning up, you might find it difficult to join future rides.

The small size of some pop-up rides means we might be unable to split a ride if you get into difficulties. We will do all we can to escort you back to the start point, but please be prepared to navigate yourself home or to call for support from a partner, relative or friend.

If you are out on your bike and you see one of our pop-up rides, you can ask the ride leader if you can join provided it doesn't exceed the limit set by Government. Please respect the leader's decision if you are not allowed to join.
