Protocol for BCW Club Events 2021

The BCW Protocol has been posted on the Club Time Trials page and this must be followed when attending club events this year, either as a competitor or official.
These measures are necessary to comply with the CTT (Cycle Time Trials) COVID risk assessment.
It’s not exactly a return to normal but a new normal for the time being, which is a start at getting back to our sport.
Further information will be posted on our website regarding the requirements for riding the R2R and Beacon Wheelers club events.

Group Riding Guidance

Statement from British Cycling:

From 29 March, under the Government’s roadmap formally organised outdoor sport and physical activity in England is able to restart and will not be subject to the ‘Rule of Six’ gatherings limit. As a result of this, British Cycling is pleased to say that at this stage our affiliated club and recreation programme rides, which adhere to our Covid-secure guidance, will be able to take place in groups of up to 15 people.

We know that many groups will prefer to keep riding in smaller numbers at this stage, which is why we’re encouraging groups to plan activities in a way which suits them best, and we will be providing additional support and guidance for those that need it.

Please note that informal group rides (i.e. groups of friends meeting up to ride together) must follow the Rule of Six, as this falls outside of the Government’s definition of formally organised outdoor sport and physical activity.
