Corona Virus Update (19 May 2020)

British Cycling has revised their recommendations on cycling in line with the governments new guidelines. The updated guidance is as follows:

  • You may exercise outdoors as many times each day as you wish.
  • You can only exercise alone, with those you live with or with up to one person from outside your household. Gatherings of more than two people from different households are not allowed at this time.
  • You should maintain a two-metre distance from anyone you meet from outside your household while out riding, stopping and waiting for people to pass at a safe distance when necessary. This is particularly important when riding on narrow paths and trails.
  • You can sit and rest outside before, during and after your ride.
  • You may drive to outdoor publicly accessible open spaces irrespective of distance, but should follow social distancing guidance while you are there.
  • In line with UK Government guidance, those aged over 70 should continue to take particular care to minimise contact with others outside their household.
  • When cycling in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, you should follow the guidance and regulations issued by the relevant devolved administration.
  • If you are showing coronavirus symptoms, or if you or any of your household are self-isolating, you should stay at home.

We recommend all Club members follow these guidelines and also ask that you only wear Club kit when strictly following these guidelines in order to maintain the reputation of the club.

Thanks for your continued support and hopefully we will be back to normal in the not too distant future. Stay fit, safe and healthy.
