Samsara Club Winter/Spring 2021
All bookings suspended.
2021 Biking in Tier 4 Update.
In accordance with yesterday's announcement from the Government, there will be no bike club or group biking activities until further notice. I will notify the club soon about rescheduling but plan to deliver all sessions paid for and booked starting from a later date, when it is safe and permitted.
Please check this page before the club as I will announce any changes here.
If I am able to take any 1:1 I will do so in the near future.
Thank you for your support and patience. Ollie
