New guidelines for riding but staying inside UK law have been issued by the NMC. The guidance has been prepared by the NMC in partnership with the organisations involved with the former Coalition of Motorcycling Organisations (CoMO) and the National Police Chief's Council. Click to read the guidelines in brief.
Firstly, although riding motorcycles (for a valid reason) is more COVID secure than car-sharing or taking public transport we are all ambassadors for motorcycling when we go out so please ride responsibly and considerately.
The guidelines are different depending on which country you live in and all dates are subject to change at the whim of the Government.
From 29th March you can ride to somewhere for recreation and exercise but you should keep local and can only meet in groups of up to 6 from a maximum of 2 households.
From 17th May you can ride to wherever you like in England and can meet in groups of up to 30 outdoors.
From 21st June all restrictions should have been lifted.
From 2nd April you can ride to somewhere for recreation and exercise but you should keep local and can't meet up with anyone.
From 26th April you can ride throughout Scotland and can meet in groups of 4 from a maximum of 2 households.
From late June all restrictions should be lifted.
No advice as yet but you can go out - though you need to stay local and can only meet in groups of 4 from a maximum of 2 households.
There will be a review on the 15th April.
