Newsletter 22nd June 2022

Dear All

Lots of participants enjoyed cycling last Friday, it was very warm but there was also a cool breeze – the complementary refreshments table was certainly popular and helped keep everyone cool! We will be continuing to provide refreshments so please enjoy them.

If you’ve not yet booked a slot for this week, please email Jennifer@wfaoxford.org (no later than midday on Thursday please).

Friday 1 July – as mentioned before, we’ll be running an extra special inclusive session in conjunction with Bike Oxford – medals for all participants – and refreshments! .

Our Tuesday sessions will commence on Tuesday 5 July. We’ll run slots at 10am and 11am to start with. The track is not available on 12th and 19th July, so the Tuesday sessions will then resume weekly from 26th July. Jennifer will be taking bookings for these as usual, so please let her know if you are interested. For those looking to bring large groups to the sessions, Tuesdays may be better as there is likely to be a greater availability of cycles.

If anyone wishes to help at the Tuesday sessions, please let us know. As usual, volunteers are free to attend whenever is convenient for them and for whatever part of the morning suits them.

If you’ve not already seen it, take a look at our updated website – we are still adding to it (and any suggestions/contribitions you may have are welcome) but it now provides most of the information required to explain to people what we do and how to attend a session.

Many people are more relaxed about Covid but Government guidelines continue to advise caution when in close proximity to anyone who may be at higher risk of becoming seriously ill. Many of our participants are vulnerable, so please do not attend a WFA session if you think you might be infected or if you have had recent close contact with someone, eg in your household, who has Covid-19. Possible symptoms include runny nose, sore throat, headache and fatigue.

Hand sanitiser is provided on the reception desk and surface cleaner on the table by the entrance to the track. Please help yourself to wipe down bikes before/after use if our volunteers are busy with other participants. Cleaning materials are also provided near the toilet.

See you on Friday- hopefully some sunshine but not as hot as last week.
