CTC Glasgow Riding Under Covid Rules

CTC Glasgow Committee are pleased to announce that we are soon to be resuming a limited rides programme. Our planned 2020 rides programme will unfortunately have to be discarded and we will be looking to our ride leaders to post ad hoc rides. We will hopefully be running a regular ride on a Saturday morning.

Due to Covid restrictions, rides must to limited to a maximum of 5 households. In practice that means that rides will be generally limited to 5 people (leader plus 4 others) plus other members of the 5 households up to a maximum of 15, but only if the ride leader considers the numbers practical (generally <15).

Before joining a ride please note carefully all of the following.

· Anyone with symptoms of cough, high temperature, breathlessness or loss of taste or smell must not join the ride

· Ride is limited to members from 5 different households

· Meeting points are outdoors

· All riders must pre-register for rides

· Social distancing of 2 metres must be maintained at all times . Riding will generally be in single file and distancing well in excess of 2 m is requested.

· All riders will have read Cycling UK advice on socially distant cycling [https://www.cyclinguk.org/article/tips-soci... (https://www.cyclinguk.org/article/tips-socially-distant-cycling)]

· Riders should be self-sufficient in the event of breakdown (breakdown tools & spares or phone to arrange pick-up)

The practicality is that that ride sign-up will be limited to the leader plus 4 others, but riders may bring along other household members but please let the ride leader know in advance. Please be prepared to bring along your own refreshments/food as café stops are likely not possible.
