Current position on group riding 3/6/20
Wed 03/06/20 20:49
I today contacted Cycling UK to discuss their advice given the most recent response from the government.
If you go on the Cycling UK website you will be able to view the detail.
Clearly given the current position it would not be wise to consider putting on official club road and mountain bike rides
even though up to 6 members can ride ( provided they adhere to social distancing ).
The organisation, selection of riders, appointing leaders etc. would be beset with problems.
As Chairman I have taken the decision to monitor the position until things improve and further advice is provided.
Chairman’s update 3/6/20
All attached below is the link to the Cycling UK website which has been updated to reflect the latest Govt advice
and guidance in relation to the current Coronavirus crisis.
They cover the position in each of the countries that make up the UK.
In particular they advise that it is permissible now to ride in a group of up to 6 people provided social distancing of 2 metres is met.
Given the current restrictions there is no proposal to introduce any official KDCS rides.
Any group rides you therefore choose to arrange are by personal choice.
You must of course adhere to the social distancing requirements.
Should the position change in the future I will keep you informed.
Keep safe and take care.
