The new covid strain is overwhelming the NHS making it necessary for tighter restrictions which includes closure of schools.
The new lockdown is to last at least until the 22nd February.
All coaching sessions will stop with immediate effect!
We at Cycle Stars know the importance of exercixe for young riders, both for fitness and mental health, we will be following the news carefully including advisories from British Cycling.
In the meantime Jim will continue with Zwift online cycling sessions and we are looking at some Strava challenges.
Cycle Stars repair workshop will remain open as it's an essential service. Using a bike for exercise and commuting is both healthy and the safest option at this moment in time, so make sure your bike is ready for winter cycling.

30 December 2020Coaching Sessions continue in tier 4 covid restrictions
Happy New Year to you all, we had hoped that the New Year would bring some normality to our sport, however the news has just been released that Gloucestershire is moving into tier 4. We wanted to clarify that we can continue with coaching during lockdown; the following statement has been taken from the Goverment online guidance notes:
Sports and physical activity
Indoor gyms and sports facilities will close. Outdoor sports courts, outdoor gyms, golf courses, outdoor swimming pools, archery/driving/shooting ranges, riding centres and playgrounds can remain open for individual exercise, and for people to use with others within your household, support bubble, or with one person from another household. Organised outdoor sport for under 18s and disabled people will be allowed.
However we must stress it is only through your support in keeping safe distances that we can continue.
Please ensure you complete the online screening questionaire before attending any coaching sessions.
