The committee has been closely monitoring advice regarding the coronavirus/COVID 19 situation.
Cycling UK and British Cycling have today issued press releases suspending cycling activities initially until April 30. This includes recreational riding as well as events.
Cycling UK state ‘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’.
It is therefore with regret that Cycle Seahaven is suspending all of its activities pending updated information to the contrary.
Please note that Cycling UK within the same press release also state ‘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.’
We leave you to make an informed decision on whether to ride or not. If you choose to do so we would recommend:
1. If riding with others you keep groups as small as possible and ride with at least 10-foot gaps between riders.
2. You avoid café’s, pubs in line with current government advice.
3. You ride less technically challenging routes to avoid the risk of crashing or injury that may place an unnecessary burden on the NHS.
The committee is exploring ways of utilising club resources to support those vulnerable members in our communities. Further updates to follow.
Look after yourselves and hopefully, normal service will be resumed in the not-too-distant future.
All the best,
The Cycle Seahaven Committee.
