Covid Update 20/11/2020 - Bunch runs

Recommended Posts



As things stand with the new societal Tier arrangements coming into force from this evening, Tiers 4 and 3 mostly apply to our area, including Renfrewshire, Inverclyde and NAyrshire.

Riding bikes for exercise across Local Authority (LA) boundaries is permitted (driving cars is not).

Max group size 6/7. (6 if not a club organised bunch and from no more than 2 households) Up to 7 from the club provided all guidance is followed and Test & Protect register taken.

Start and finish your ride from the same place within your own LA.

Safe distancing throughout, practice FACTS etc.

Suggest any bunch ride to be non-stop apart from mechanicals.

Ride leader required for club bunch run to ensure guidance is complied with, as has been the case over the past months.


with thanks,

Scottish Cycling has issued a note of clarification for the latest guidance outlined above, which also confirms our understanding of matters regarding transit across Local Authority boundaries, as follows;

Protection Levels Guidance Update
There was some late changes to the travel guidance on Friday after the regulations were laid in Parliament that was disseminated through to sportscotland/SGBs on Friday afternoon.
We've now updated the guidance and it can be found at the link below.
The important change is this:
  • Participants of all ages (Adults and U18s) living in a Level 4 area can now travel within around 5 miles of their Local Authority area to take part in organised activity.
The below point still stands
  • Riding through areas at all levels is permissible and you may travel within 5 miles into a Level 4 Local Authority area to start your ride.
In essence, the above allows for rides to transit through all levels as long as they start and finish in the same place
