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
21 June 2020
Following the last governmental advice and the subsequent recent British Cycling Covid-19 update, the committee has reviewed these for the clubs ongoing activities.
Whilst each of us are striving to keep safe, and protect our vulnerable family/friends, there is a need for some responsible undeniable social contact to maintain our sense of sanity during these very strange times. The fact that is most disquieting is that perhaps half or more of people affected - have no symptoms at all. Any of us may have it and currently we have no way of knowing until it is too late. It is therefore our view that at this moment in time, in the interests of safety to our club members and the wider public, we do not feel it is safe or practical to resume organised group rides regardless of the number of attendees.
So we believe if our members continue to maintain small groups of 2 households, then riding together to “Common Destinations” along varying routes we can therefore retain our sense of ‘club’ identity, while minimising any exposure to this infection. Please be reminded everyone to practice your social distancing skills and also to use any Cafe provided hand sanitiser when stopping for refreshments. The consequences of Covid 19 are likely to be with us until such time that a treatment is routinely available or we have transitioned through the winter without a second wave of the Pandemic. We will of course continue to monitor the situation and when any new advice is provided, we will review our position and then post any updates accordingly.
To those of you that have paid your membership covering this year already and to others who are considering membership renewal? Your membership will now be extended to 31st March, 2022.
We would like to thank you for your patience during these challenging times. Your support & continued involvement with the Swan Wheelers Cycling Club is appreciated.
