2022 Membership Price Update
2022 membership price update from the CEO.
It is all of our responsibility to try to avoid spreading this virus to protect the most vulnerable in our community. The team at BQ also advises members to invest more time in their route planning and select connections which minimise risk when cycling – even if this results in an indirect route to the one you would normally take. Now is not the time to be placing more pressure on our health service with accidents or taking unnecessary risk that could be avoided with better planning.
Below are some of the commonly asked questions the BQ team are receiving on a daily basis.
