Covid-19 safety

In line with Government guidelines, and our own risk assessments, all participants of the Bike Ride should:

  • Take a lateral flow test prior to attending the event, and only attend if a negative result is returned.
  • Maintain social distancing, and wash hands / use hand sanitiser regularly (sanitiser will be available at the check-in marquee, toilets, and refreshment stops).
  • Use face coverings in indoor settings, and whilst passing through the check in areas until out on the ride.
  • If feeling unwell, displaying any symptoms of Covid-19 (even if they are mild), or have been asked to self isolate, please do not attend the event. 
  • Consider their own health and personal circumstances before attending our event.  Whilst every measure has been taken to keep participants, staff and volunteers safe, Covid-19 is highly transmissible and so participants should consider this when deciding to join the event.
