Starting up rides as Lockdown eases from 29th March 2021

Post by Roger Shephard » Fri Mar 12, 2021 9:59 pm

Following the discussions during the Zoom committee meeting on Tuesday 9th March, here is the start up ride list with the relevant Step-date relaxation of the Covid restrictions outlined in the government's Roadmap out of Lockdown.

All the dates given in the Roadmap are subject to examination and review by the government depending on infection rates and hospitalization numbers, so nothing can be taken for granted and our club's intentions for the rides may be frustrated in the short or long term.

This posting is giving notice that the club intends to offer the first batch of rides under the provisions of Step 1 and Step 2 for 11 April, 25 April, and 09 May 2021 so that we can plant a seed in your diaries for joining the rides. However, I do not intend to cut across the system whereby ride leaders post their intention to lead a ride and to invite five others (members or guesting non-members) to join in at a location of the leader's choosing.

Please keep an eye on the forum for individual postings by ride leaders for the dates given so that you can book your slot if you want to join a ride.


PLEASE NOTE THAT IN LINE WITH THE ROADMAP OUT OF LOCKDOWN AND THE TIMETABLE FOR THE STEPS, ALL DATES PUBLISHED ARE PROVISIONAL AND WILL BE SUBJECT TO THE POSSIBILITY OF REVISION OR POSTPONEMENT DEPENDING ON EMERGING GOVERNMENT GUIDANCE AND RESTRICTIONS.

Sunday 11 April 2021 ROADMAP STEP 1 Start point at leader’s discretion (map ref TBA)
Sunday 25 April 2021 ROADMAP STEP 2 Start point at leader’s discretion (map ref TBA)
Sunday 09 May 2021 ROADMAP STEP 2 Start point at leader’s discretion (map ref TBA)

ALSO NOTE THAT FOR ROADMAP STEPS 1 AND 2 THE COVID REGULATIONS WITH REGARD TO SOCIAL DISTANCING, FACE MASKS, NON-SHARING OF TRANSPORT, HYGIENE ETC ARE ALL STILL IN FORCE.
