Some points to mention, are that during the winter months we require everyone taking part in the club spins to be fitted with at least a rear, ‘full’, mudguard

Full rear mudguards are easily fitted to almost all bikes now, weight almost nothing, and will protect riders behind you.

Next point, is that in the darker months (Nov, Dec, Jan), we also require all riders taking part in the spins to be fitted with a rear light – again, these can be sourced quite cheaply these days, and can be USB recharged, so battery expenses are nill.
Lights are critical to rider safety, especially as the club spins leaving at 8 or 9am mean that riders will be on the roads quite early, and the mornings during these months can be quite dark.
