Postponed start date

I am sorry to have to inform you all that our planned start date of the 4th of February has had to be postponed  because of the Covid 19 rules and regulations. Needless to say that we will continue to review the legislation and open up once again when we are allowed to and when it is safe to do so, please watch this space for further updates. Sorry to disappoint you all.

Alice Holt Inclusive Cycling winter break

We are now taking our usual Winter Break. We plan to open again on February the 4th, 2021 if the virus and the current Government Covid regulations allow.

In the meantime we the volunteers at AHIC wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy virus free New Year.

Alice Holt Inclusive Cycling opens up again

Good news, Alice Holt Inclusive Cycling will open again on Thursday morning the 3rd of December, weather permitting. Usual opening times of 9.30 am to 12.00 md with our Covid 19 rules of 6 in place to keep you safe. We hope to see you there.

AHIC closure during lockdown

All cycling sessions have been cancelled during the current lock down. We will revue the situation again in December to see if when can start up again. Watch this space for further information.

We are starting again !!!

We plan is to start again cycling for the disabled up at Alice Holt on Thursday morning the 1st of October and on each of the following Thursday up to Christmas. To comply with the pandemic rule of six we have introduced an half hourly appointment system starting at 10.00 when we can cater for 4 clients/carers plus the 2 volunteers. We repeat this every half hour after that up to 11.30. The length of time for cycling is not restricted to half an hour, just cycle for as long as you like but remember we will shut down at 12.00 mid day. To book an appointment text or phone on our contact number. We have also set up a WhatsApp Alice Holt Incl Cycling group which I would encourage you to join so that you can get the very latest information, for example cancellation of a session due to bad weather. Just send us your mobile telephone number and I will put you on the group.

As you would expect, we will have to take some Covid protection measures to ensure that both clients and volunteers are safe when they are with us. Please contact us if you need more information about our Covid Protection Policy.

Inclusive Cycling to start again

We are planning to start our Thursday morning of Inclusive Cycling sessions up at Alice Holt on the 1st of October. This is on the condition that the Government doesn’t impose further restrictions on us all and particularly on us old folk before that date.
Clearly we have had to take into account of the pandemic so we have a  Covid-19 Protection Policy in place to make sure all are safe when you are with us.
Two important changes to note are,
1) We will have to cancel the session (possibly at short notice) if the weather is bad.
2) We must not exceed 30 people at any one time.
Please feel free to contact me if you need clarification or you have any comments about this policy. My telephone number is 0770 100 3026
We hope you can come back to the Forest once again. It will be lovely to see you all once again.
Keep smiling and stay safe
