I am afraid to say that we cannot operate as usual at Alice Holt for the next two weeks on Thursday the 9th and 16th of August. The building works in and around our container are far from finished and this is prohibiting us from even getting the bikes out, let alone being able to cycle safely in the figure of eight and the surrounding area. The plan now is to start again on the 23rd of August. I will inspect the site again during the week of the 23rd and post another notice confirming that we can start again. This closure also applies to anyone who wishes to hire our adapted bikes through the Bike Hire company at Alice Holt.
I am sorry for the inconvenience but I am afraid that there is no way we can operate safely at the moment.
Alice Holt Cycling sessions are cancelled for the next two weeks.
Over the next two weeks the Building Contractors at Alice Holt Forest will be working next to our bicycle container laying sewer pipes and building a new manhole. This will make it impractical and unsafe for us to hold our all ability cycling sessions on the 26th of July and the 2nd of August 2018.
Likewise the Bike Hire Company will not be able to access our adapted bicycles during this fortnight.
We are sorry for the inconvenience and we hope to see you all again when the work has moved away from our area.
Please watch this space for further up dates.
Alice Holt is undergoing some extensive building works in and around where we operate, so clients should be aware that there is some disturbance to the tranquility of the Forest at the moment and some of our routes are unavailable for the time being.
But we are still operating as usual albeit with minor changes to where we work from. The Builders are very understanding and co-operative, so there is no danger to any of our clients and carers.
Alice Holt Inclusive Cycling will be CLOSED on Thursday the 10th of May 2018 because all the volunteers are on cycling holidays that week.
Please accept our apologies.
Normal service will resume on the 17th of May.
