Review keeps the guidelines up to date with evolving legislation
In light of the new ‘Rule of Six’ regulations, the Coalition of Motorcycling Organisations (CMO) has reviewed its COVID-19 Riding Guidelines. Only minor amendments were necessary to ensure that the guidelines meet not only the moral goal of staying safe, but also remain within legislation and the spirit and intended outcomes of the law.
The Coalition has removed references to groups of 30, and now refers to groups of six in alignment with the new restrictions. Richard Gladman (IAM) and Roger Bibbings (VMCC) have checked the changes to legislation and advice issued by the Government over this recent period of announcements, and the Coalition is happy that the revised edition is fully compliant with the letter and intent of all laws and guidelines.
Commenting on behalf of Coalition members, Mario Costa-Sa, Chair of the Trail Riders Fellowship, said:
“We need to understand what is both possible and lawful as responsible organisations who are capable of carrying out risk assessments, and equally capable of making Covid-safe arrangements should our members wish. The guidelines must remain the go-to guide for those motorcycling organisations making these difficult decisions.”
The revised guidelines can be found online at http://bit.ly/CovidSafeV3-02 . The member groups of the Coalition of Motorcycling Organisations encourage their members and all other riders to read the guidelines, and to apply the advice to their own efforts to fight the spread of the virus.
