Advice for group cycling – Up-date, 5th June 20.

Advice for Cycling UK groups and volunteers

Following renewed advice from the Government, Cycling UK is advising cyclists should not take part in club runs or any group activity until further notice.

As a result of this revised guidance, Cycling UK has taken the decision to ask all its member and affiliate groups not to run any group activities, including club runs or events.

This is in line with advice from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the UCI, with the aim of ensuring the maximum protection of people across the world.

In light of the latest Government advice on COVID-19, and guidance on social distancing designed to reduce the risk of spreading infection, cover provided under the Organiser’s Liability insurance could potentially be invalid if a club or affiliated group decides to go against the advice issued by Cycling UK and arranges a group ride.

For individual cyclist’s the Third Party Liability insurance included within membership will protect a member of the public against the risk of a cycling related incident involving an insured member.

However, people should not avoid cycling altogether as it remains a great way to keep fit and active and is a good way to boost immunity.

This post replaces the previous post on the 1st June.
