Regard group riding since the government has allowed six people to meet

and exercise together.

The document below is the advice to follow given by British Cycling.

 

All British Cycling sanctioned activity is currently suspended due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Understandably and inevitably, the ongoing global uncertainty around the pandemic has led to plenty of questions and concerns, and we have done our best below to answer and clarify some of the queries we have received from the cycling community.

This page was last updated on: Wednesday 3 June 2020

What are the changes from June 1?

In England, from June 1 the number of people from outside your household with whom you can meet to exercise outdoors has been increased. Groups of up to six people from different households are now permitted to exercise together, however they must still follow social distancing guidelines and keep at least two metres apart from those outside their household.

Current measures in England also state that:

  • If you are showing coronavirus symptoms, or if you or any of your household are self-isolating, you should stay at home.
  • You may exercise outdoors as many times each day as you wish.
  • You can sit and rest outside before, during and after your ride.
  • You may drive to outdoor publicly accessible open spaces irrespective of distance.
  • In line with UK Government guidance, those aged over 70 should continue to take care to minimise contact with others outside their household.

While the Government guidance now permits groups of up to six to ride together, British Cycling believes that the need to maintain a two-metre distance while riding as a group of six may present practical difficulties and potential risks. For this reason, we would strongly encourage riders to continue to cycle in smaller groups at present, and only ride in a group of six if they are absolutely sure that it is safe to do so (for example, in a park).

We would also like to reiterate to cyclists the need to be mindful of keeping a two-metre distance when overtaking other cyclists and from pedestrians who may be walking on pavements at the side of the road.
