COVID PROTOCOLS

HOW THEY AFFECT OUR RIDING

Following the recent English Government announcement, the implications for purely recreational motorcycling would seem to be as follows:

UP TO AND INCLUDING MARCH 7TH
Motorcycle journeys are permitted but still limited to essential reasons only ('key' worker commuting, essential shopping, care, education, medical reasons).

FROM MARCH 8TH
Solo riding will be permitted to meet locally with only one other non-household member, observing social distancing and hygiene measures, remaining outside at all times. No use of hospitality facilities. No overnight stays.

FROM MARCH 29TH - APRIL 11TH
Group rides WILL BE permitted but observing the 'rule of six' (ROS) at starts, stopping and finishing points, still remaining outdoors with social distancing/hygiene, No use of hospitality facilities. No overnight stays.


FROM APRIL 12TH
The ‘rule of six’ (ROS) still applies, plus the now-familiar social distancing and hygiene. Restaurants and pub gardens will be allowed to serve customers sitting outdoors, including alcohol.

FROM MAY 17TH
People can meet in groups of up to 30 outdoors AND pubs, restaurants and other hospitality venues can seat customers indoors. Hotels, hostels and B&Bs can reopen. Subject to other countries’ restrictions, international leisure travel can resume.

FROM JUNE 21ST
At last! A return to normal riding. Hospitality and accommodation back to normal. Rallies and camping allowed. International travel restrictions still
