We are Swan Wheelers, Buckingham's revived historic cycling club. We're definitely not an elitist cycling club, we're a bunch of people who enjoy riding their bikes. Whether you do that on a road bike or a hybrid, whether you wear lycra or not, whether you wear our club kit or your own gear, if you ride faster or slower.... it doesn't matter as long as you want to ride.
If you're not a member yet and and not sure if a club is for you then you are welcome try us out. We run three different ride groups and you can join us on up to three rides before you would be asked to join the club. If you're not sure what to expect please take a look at our guide to your first club ride and then choose a ride from the calendar or get in touch.
SWCC Covid-19 Update
29th March 2021
Whilst there is still a need for us all to keep safe in these challenging times, we have a new update from British Cycling re the relaxation for club/group rides, see their latest update in the link below.
The committee are now able to reinstate our organised Club Rides from the Swan Pool on Sunday & Wednesday’s. But again we will be adhering to the latest COVID-19 guidelines, whilst the required Group of Six (6) protocols have been relaxed to 15 for organised outdoor sports, we your committee, will maintain a lower quantity of 8 max for the near future. Social distancing must remain at its core that we have been doing successfully over the last year.
As from Sunday April 4th we will be resuming our Sunday & Wednesday group rides, these will be posted on the Club Rides Forum with the usual advice for the chosen cafe stops and routes & the usual data files, advice etc. To manage the attendees, everyone that is wishing to join a club ride from the Swan Pool – must notify the Ride Leaders via their “In the Saddle” Forum post by tapping the "I’m Attending" tab in advance for any chosen ride or notifying them directly. Until April 12th Cafes are only available as ‘takeaway only’ and this will be managed accordingly, thereafter it will on the premises but outside till May. Usual social distancing must be adhered to at all stops including start and finish points - masks should be worn when entering cafes.
Your Swans committee would like to thank you for your understanding and your support over the last year and continued involvement in the Swan Wheelers in these challenging times. We will continue to monitor the ongoing easing and adhere to any further changes and advise accordingly.
