COVID-19 Update. What you can and can’t do

Given that we are now in a second lockdown, and our movements are now greatly restricted, please now ensure that you obey what is in fact law, and keep yourselves and your families safe. British Cycling has provided some guidance in line with the new national restrictions. I fully expect all club members to abide by them.
They are below, and can be referenced at the link at the bottom of the post.

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on Monday evening we have sadly now suspended all activities and events in England until further notice. We know that this news will come as a disappointment to many of you, however it’s important that we now once again pull together to ensure that cycling plays its part in bringing the virus under control. Getting out on our bikes is a great way to boost our mental and physical health and we’ll be working hard to keep you pedalling.

Our full FAQs page can be viewed here, however we’ve pulled out some key points for you and your role below:

How can I continue to ride?

Under the new restrictions you are permitted to cycle, and we would encourage you to do so, while following these rules:

  • You should only ride alone, with your household/support bubble or one other person.
  • Stay local, ride within your limits and ensure you are self-sufficient.
  • Leave the house to exercise only once each day.
  • Keep a safe distance from others and practice good respiratory hygiene (ie. no spitting, use a tissue).
  • You can only leave your home to exercise, and not for the purpose of leisure (such as a picnic or a coffee break).
  • You can travel a short distance within your area to exercise if necessary (ie. to access an open space).

Under the new restrictions, elite sport and organised outdoor sport for disabled people are both exempt. However, due to restrictions on facility access organised activity for disabled riders will be limited by the availability of a suitable location for it to take place.

What do you mean by local?

We know many of you will want to know what is meant by ‘staying local’. The Government’s definition of this is stated as ‘your village, town or the part of a city where you live’.We understand that this definition is particularly restrictive for cycling, and we are working to seek further clarification on this. We will provide a further update as soon as we are able.In the meantime, we recommend that you follow the advice to stay local, ride well within your ability and ensure that you are self-sufficient.
