COVIDSafeSummer

With COVID-Normal its time to review the the best way to stay safe and ride right. 

Key points

 We are currently in CovidSafeSummer

  • Riding is a great way to stay healthy and we can now meet up outside in a group as large as 100 people as long as we keep at least 1.5 meters distance between you and anyone you dont live with.
  • Face masks are not required outside, however, it is strongly recommended that you wear a face mask where you can’t maintain at least 1.5 metres distance from others.

  • You must carry a face mask with you when you leave home, unless you have a lawful reason not to.

 

WBUG Recommends

Use our exercise time to get out and stay healthy, raise a hand or give a nod to your fellow cyclists, and be mindful everyones time on the cycle tracks is now precious.

Remember to pack some hand sanitiser containing at least 60 per cent alcohol and stay at least 1.5 metres away from to other people. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds as soon as you return indoors.

We look forward to seeing you on an official WBUG ride and if you see us on the tracksgive us a big wave.
