Activities During the COVID-19 Restrictions

With MTB races and other group activities being cancelled many clubs are looking at innovative ways to provide activities for members in consideration of rider safety and physical distancing guidelines.
   
Some clubs are making use of Strava to create a route for riders to safely ride in their own time without the usual race environment.

Challenging members to ride a specific number of kilometres in a given time frame, for example 200km in the month of April, is also another option.
