Please make sure your bike is in good working order and properly maintained. Bring along water, basic bike repair kit and suitable clothing for Yorkshire weather. During winter make sure you have mud-guards and fully working lights! Riders participate at their own risk and to have their own insurance, we recommend British Cycling ride insurance.
No-one gets left behind on The Commute Yorkshire Social – we ride at the pace of the slowest in the group, waiting at the top of hills etc. Post ride celebration drinks are at Bar T’at in Ilkley. Everyone welcome.
