23 Jun ***BMX Track Reopening 24th June***
WPC are pleased the announce that the BMX pump track will reopen tomorrow (24th June). If you intend to use the track then please can you follow the guidance outlined below which has been copied from the British Cycling organisation. In addition please wear a helmet and pick up any litter.
Thank you and safe riding! 🙂🚴♀️
1. Ride well within your ability – Don’t try difficult skills or ride too fast.
2. Do not congregate with other people under any circumstances – pump tracks and BMX tracks provide great social environments, but at this time the only reason for being at a facility should be to ride. Once you’ve finished your loop, or if you’re waiting – make sure you take a break away from the finish and start areas, to ensure social distancing and give others a chance.
3. Clean your equipment before & after riding and try not to touch anything else.
4. No physical contact – No hugs, high-fives, hand shakes, etc. except with people in your own household.
5. Do not share any mobile devices, equipment, food or drink with others.
6. Wash your hands regularly, including before leaving home and on returning home, and bring hand sanitizer with you when visiting a facility.
7. Only use an outdoor cycling facility if you are actively riding and leave as soon as possible after finishing.
8. Please leave plenty of space and be considerate of other riders, especially younger or less experienced riders. STAY ALERT – STAY SAFE. One rider on small tracks, on bigger tracks leave a good distance – a straight and a berm on big tracks – remember you won’t have space to catch less confident riders, you will have to slow down, and you need to allow space to pass if necessary.
9. Spectating is discouraged. Where attendance of a parent/guardian (non-participant) or a carer for a rider with a disability is required, social distancing should be strictly observed while watching the activity.
10. Be aware that onsite toilet facilities may not be open. Where they are open, riders are advised to take particular care when using them.
Remember, general cycling guidance still applies
11. Only ride on your own, with members of your household or with one other person from outside your household, whilst keeping two metres apart at all times. Gatherings of more than two people from different households are not allowed at this time.
12. Keep at least 2 metres apart from other people at all times whilst riding – be respectful and allow other riders to pass at a safe distance where necessary.
13. If you are showing coronavirus symptoms, or if you or any of your household are selfisolating, you should stay at home.
14. When cycling in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, you should follow the guidance and regulations issued by the relevant devolved administration.
