"Coronavirus: Updated guidance for individual cyclists and cycling groups
Coronavirus rules and restrictions vary across the UK and may change at any time. Here is the latest guidance for individual cyclists and cycling groups
Please also see Coronavirus and cycling: your FAQs answered by our experts for further advice.
Statement from Cycling UKAs the national cycling charity, our aim is to support the UK’s population to cycle. This remains true during this period of coronavirus affecting the UK. Above all, the safety and welfare of Cycling UK’s staff, volunteers, participants at our rides and events, beneficiaries of our cycling programmes and the general public are always our main priority. We are closely monitoring the situation and taking advice from the government, the NHS and partners where applicable.
The virus and its variants are still very much in circulation so Cycling UK encourages people to cycle but to do so in a manner which minimises the risk to themselves and others from it. Cyclists should use their common sense: for example, by keeping an eye on Cycling UK and government guidance for their nation around participating in and organising cycling activities and events; and by maintaining good hygiene practices and not cycling with others if feeling unwell or told to self-isolate.
As of Monday 29 November, face coverings must be worn again in shops and on public transport.
There are currently no restrictions or set numbers of people who may gather indoors or outside. However, Cycling UK advises that limiting group rides to a maximum of 15 is sensible and generally considered best practice anyway.
Certain other recommendations also still apply as coronavirus continues to circulate.
For example, face coverings are advised in crowded settings, though not while exercising, and participants, volunteers, spectators and others are strongly advised to carry out a self-assessment of symptoms before attending a ride or event and should definitely not attend if unwell or contacted by NHS Test and Trace and told to self-isolate. You may choose to limit the close contact you have with people you do not usually live with. You may also choose to take a lateral flow test before being in close contact and also encourage those people you are meeting with to do so, which will help to manage periods of risk. This includes close contact in a higher risk environment, or when spending prolonged periods of time with a vulnerable individual.
There are also special considerations event organisers should take into account in line with government advice for England - see Events section below - and also Sport England's FAQs for more information."
Dear CC Hackney Members,
it looks like we may be seeing the tail end of the pandemic but please remain cautious when attending cycling events and in terms of cycling with CC Hackney please see the guidelines by following the link to British Cycling -
PDF - 'The Way Forward' here.
Our National Health Service has been under immense pandemic pressure throughout. Although the end of this pandemic seems to be sight and the worst of it has apparently passed, it's doing the right thing to stay careful when out and about. Our hospitals and staff are still under the cosh and do not need any more casualties, they are dealing with a backlog and ongoing Covid admissions. Members should keep focussed on the situation and the current rules to help ensure we do our bit to come out of this state of play safely.
Measures/habits stay in place; social distance, wash hands, wear a mask when inside away from home - continue to protect the NHS and front line staff/services and ourselves.
Working together we're getting through to good times ahead, keep it up.
Best wishes and stay safe,
Keir Apperley - CC Hackney Manager & lead coach
Who we are
CC Hackney - encouraging and developing riders from the whole community in the area.
On Tuesday 8th September 2020 CC Hackney began delivery work and the live partnership with NHS East London Foundation Trust. Prevention is better (and more cost effective) than cure, this is to do with mental health in the form of ongoing adult sessions for those benefiting from a weekly bike ride and social get together. The provision is based at our Concorde Centre station on Kingsmead Estate E9 and has been planned as one pilot for the NHS Triple Aim Project. It is expected to be a model example for other positive and tailored clubs to follow (not just cycling) NHS ELFT Triple Aim; looking to help people at risk of deteriorating mental health near home, in their own neighbourhoods. CCH - serving in the community as an ongoing club that supports those feeling mental health difficulties, also people who could use some assistance during recovery from illness.
December 2019 Merger - Interlinkx CiC has rebranded by transitioning into 'Cycling Club Hackney CIO' (CIO standing for Charitable Incorporated Organisation). Meanwhile the existing club, which was an unincorporated association, has donated its name and assets to the new charity, therefore merging Cycling Club Hackney and Interlinkx CIC into a single entity with charity status to further enable our capacity to deliver positive projects for all in Hackney. Registered Charity Number 1186757
2019 Supported by the William Wates Memorial Trust
Cycling Club Hackney is proud to announce our latest funding supporter; the William Wates Memorial Trust. This is coming into effect from September 2019 with a three year agreement for the club to extend and continue developing its community outreach aspects. Fittingly the key fund raising activity for the Trust is an event called Le loop (or the Wates fund raisers Tour de France!) The Wates Group is a family owned construction company founded in 1897 that established the WWMT fund in 1998. We are excited by the prospect of being in a better position to be more able to realise our shared aims of reaching the whole community; cycling and quality sporting opportunities for all in Hackney and East London.

Cycling Club Hackney is dedicated to promoting cycling and cycle sport for all levels and ages. Our main club rides run every Sunday, where members and newcomers meet and socialise - check the calendar for upcoming events. We have an active youth section catering for young people between the ages 8 and 18, as well as our senior and women's representation. Our popular circuit race series the CC Hackney Primaveras runs every spring at Lea Valley Velopark, and we also organise and run men's and women's road races.
CC Hackney is run by volunteers. There is an expectation for all members to do their bit from time to time but especially being on point when the club has a calendar event to deliver.
