Saturday morning road ride
17th October 2020 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm
9.30 Saturday ride will be as usual leaving from kingsmeadow car park. Ride Leader is Matt Smith.
The ride is running under Scottish cycling guidelines meaning rider info will be taken and kept for track and trace we also will be keeping out the 5 health board areas under enhanced restrictions. But we do have all of the borders and Dumfries and Galloway to play with (did someone mention Moffat).
Distance will be around 60 mile/ 100k, 18+ mph average. Bring a tube, pump, food, mask and a sense of humour.
Track and trace info will be taken.
There are new rules which mean we can’t cross into to a health board area which under additional measures. Basically we can’t go into south Lanarkshire or Lothian. Anyone who lives in one of the restricted areas should not attend. Here is a link to the guidelines https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/…/Supplementary_Informati…
Recent changes to the Covid restrictions in Scotland has enabled Scottish Cycling to establish a protocol for organised club activities which PCC have adopted. The guidance states:
- You should not attend a ride if you or anyone in your household has symptoms of COVID-19 (high temperature, cough, loss or change in sense of taste or smell)
- All rides will have a Lead Rider who will gather all the contact details of the riders.
- Your contact details need to be given to the Ride Leader, preferably before the ride (to reduce the workload for the leader on the day)
- All contact details will be kept confidential for 21 days and then deleted. If a person in the group tests positive the club is required to provide the NHS Scotland ‘Test and Protect’ programme with contact details of all ride participants. If this arises, then NHS Scotland may contact you.
- Ride Leaders will have performed a risk assessment ensuring that any additional risk that may be present due to COVID-19 has been considered
- When not riding, you will need to observe social distancing.
We also ask riders to note:-
- It is important to arrive at the start of the ride a few minutes early to allow time for the Ride Leader to brief participants.
- You will need to be self sufficient regarding face covering, spares, food, drink etc.
- All participants are asked to be using the Protect Scotland app
All PCC rides will be under these guidelines (until things change!).
