WINTER WEATHER WARNINGS

Winter is now upon us, so we would ask parents to keep an eye on the weather forecast, from now on, and be prepared for cancellation of Club activities at short notice. For the Met Office 5-day forecast for Ewell click here. Please check the Calendar on the website if conditions are bad or you are in any doubt. For Saturday Club mornings the aim will be to update the Calendar with any cancellation by 8:30 a.m.

COPING WITH THE COLD

However, we will do our best to keep normal weekly activities going over the winter except in severe weather, but please be sure that your child(ren) will be happy cycling in the cold, and that they are properly equipped for the weather. Remember:

  • The windchill factor is increased when cycling.
  • Several thin layers are better than one thick one.
  • They will certainly need
    • long trousers, perhaps even with tights underneath
    • long-fingered gloves
    • a headband or thin cap under their helmet.
  • To replenish energy lost through cold as well as normal activity, a snack is a definite must!

Here are some practical ideas for warm clothing for young cyclists Warm_Clothing_for_Young_Cyclists.pdf .

Activities at Northey Avenue will be designed to keep the children moving as much as possible, so rides out are more likely. Parents willing to ride with groups will therefore be appreciated.

If the weather worsens considerably during a Saturday morning, please come earlier to fetch your child - we might end the session before the normal finish time.
