It’s ‘elf ‘n’ safety gone mad I tell ya!
OK, so there’s going to be a bit of snow and ice on Whites, but really:
Health and safety at any of our events takes precedence and we will not expose anyone to dangerous riding conditions.
Giant and Specialized are committed to promoting safe cycling, so it is with regret that we will be postponing the first event of this series.
spin classes, coming to a Giant stockist near you soon. “Safe, doods”

I would have thought the actual driving to such an event is far more of a worry that actually riding in the snow and ice. So if I was throwing such an event, I’d be worried about not enough people turning up, so would postpone it rather and save the cost. Plus, these sorts of things get riders of all sorts of abilities. I doubt a manufacture would want to encourage riders to ride in conditions that are out of their skill level. Hardly health and safety gone mad, more thinking and looking out for people. You are still welcome to ride there on your own bike if you want. If they stopped you doing that, then I’d agree it would be health and safety gone mad.Posted 9 years agoSandwichSubscriber
Probably a combination of aP and PeterPoddy reasoning. They have to look after their employees as well as the public.Posted 9 years ago
Riding someone elses bike in icy conditions when the rider does not have to worry too much about bending the bike. What could possibly go wrong. 😆glenpMember
Agreed – just what is the problem with being healthy and safe? If you went out on a bike you didn’t know, with tyres not designed for snow and ice, and (for example) ended up with a cracked ankle on the far side of Whites (not all that unlikely)… after about ten minutes of sitting in the cold with a bit of pain and shock working its way into your system you’d be thinking that it was unwise to run the event I can assure you.Posted 9 years ago
