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 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.
It is with a heavy heart we have decided that we must close all our activities at Alice Holt Inclusive Cycling with immediate effect. As most of our volunteers and a significant number of our clients fall into the group of “vulnerable adults” we have to follow the Governments advice to close down until the epidemic has passed or the Government advises us it is safe to reopen once again.
An announcement as to when we will reopen will be posted on this page; “Latest news” of our web site.
Wishing you all the best of health from all the volunteers at Alice Holt Inclusive Cycling.
We start again our Inclusive Cycling sessions at Alice Holt Forest on Thursday morning of the 6th of February. We look forward to seeing our usual clients and anyone else who fancies a cycle ride in the Forest.
Our last session this year will be on Thursday the 12th of December. We start again next year on Thursday the 6th of February when we hope all the nasty weather will be behind us.
Unfortunately we do have to raise our charges next year. From February 2020 the charge will be £3.00 per session for clients and carers ride for free as before.
We are pleased to announce that we have taken delivery of a brand new Van Ramm Velo ( a wheelchair carrying bike). The Van Ramm Velo is now the second wheelchair carrying bicycle we have so we hope this will reduce the waiting time some of our good folk have when they need this particular bike.
If you would like to see or have copies of our Complaints Procedure; Equal Opportunity Policy or our Safeguarding Policy please contact us by email and we will be pleased to send them to you.
