From the 22nd of June the restrictions were tightened with a further tightening of “hot zones” on the 2nd of July. Overnight stays are still permissible, but the number of riders per group has been reduced from 20 to 10. We are doing this because, although up to 20 are able to do the ride component, the social component (lunching etc) is restricted to groups of 10. To meet demand, we may have multiple rides departing at different times.
Due to the lock down of hot zone postcodes from midnight 1st July, all rides before the 30th of July will be restricted to people that do not live in the hot zone postcodes. Two postcodes were added from 5th of July. The current hot zone postcodes are:
3012, 3021, 3031, 3032, 3038, 3042, 3046, 3047, 3051, 3055, 3060, 3064
Rides should not stop in hot zones.
At all times rider behaviour must be within the law and follow the Victorian COVID-19 guidelines.
A few things to note:
- do not attend if you live in one of the hot zone postcodes
- do not attend if you have the slightest cold, flu or COVID-19 symptoms
- do not attend if you are or should be in quarantine due to covid-19 (including waiting for a test rest result)
- no more than 10 riders per group
- always be 1.5 m or more away from other people
- allow at least a 3-bike length distance behind other riders while riding
- no bunching up, even at stop points
- do not touch other riders’ bicycles or equipment
- recommended to have hand sanitizer that has at least 60% alcohol in your kit
- recommended to have the COVIDSafe app installed on your phone

COVID-19 also has implications for the way we do first aid:
