The lockdown is easing, but not that we’d notice. My take is that it’s still no business as usual, as far as the club is concerned.
BC and CUK have updated their advice following the changes announced yesterday. CTT have not updated their advice, which still says there will be no TTs until after June 30th.
BC advice today
- 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.
CUK advice today
- There will be no limit on duration or frequency of exercise; however official advice remains that you should stay at home ‘as much as possible’
- You will be able to travel any distance in order to exercise
- You will be able to meet and exercise with one person who is not a member of your household, provided you maintain social distancing of at least two metres.
In other parts of the UK, it is still not permitted to ride with anyone who is not a member of your household.
