When we can ride as a group we need to have rules to keep us and the public safe:
1) Ride Leader to take a list of all cyclists on a club ride.
2) Social distancing to be observed at all times.
3) Take care when at coffee stops to socially distance from members of the public.
4)Members to be encouraged to take their own food on the ride.
5) All members should take their own hand sanitiser on the ride.
Cafe stops will be optional for the foreseeable future, dependant of group sizes and on how busy the cafe is at the time....So bring a drink and sandwiches and prepare for a possible roadside picnic.
