As we all know velodromes have been shut down for a number of months . In the last week Some have reopened , last week I rode at Derby and it was great to be back on the boards . Anyone else been back yet ? and what was the experience like ?
Change to Rule of 6 for indoor sports announced today may change things. Depends on if interpretation of "Team" includes group of cyclists in an SQT line etc.
Yep be interesting how it will be interpreted, hopefully sessions will continue 🤔
This doesn't look great for bunch stuff. 6 at a time = Keirin sessions!
I'm hearing BC have been given clearance for all indoor activity to continue as before. Unverified but amazing if that is somehow the case.
That appears to be the case at Derby too , hopefully get a few more sessions in !
Possibly for discussion elsewhere bit I can imagine other sport NGB's being a bit pissed off by this if it is indeed true.
BC advise 30 can be on track, in separate groups of 6. Mcr will be capped at 18 for now.
In other news, I rode with 3 others on a quiet session tonight and it went ok.
Track racing is permitted with 24 on track per group too
I've booked in a few session at Lee Valley next month to get back on the boards after being away for quite a few years. The drop-in accredited sessions will continue to run under Stage 2 rules, but I had an Endurance SQT session booked as well and this was cancelled, however I managed to change it to another drop-in session. No idea why one type of session can run and not the other though.
Guidance from Sport England & B.C. changed last Thursday night. Except for Elite, U18, & Disabled riders, there is no sanctioned indoor group activity or coaching.
The tier 2 & 3 rule is no meeting or mixing indoors anywhere with non household/ bubble people.
This is a bit open to interpretation as "meeting & mixing" haven't been formally defined (beyond dictionary definition) for the purpose of the guidance from what I can see. There's also the age old "is it coaching or facilitation/ safety instruction" debate and so venues are doing their best to interpret it all and put on covid secure sessions within the spirit of the guidance rather than simply close.
From a few days ago if you live in a tier 2 or 3 area you cannot ride at Derby velodrome . So as with covid regulations generally its kind of a mixed set of rules at the various indoor tracks .
Is Glasgow open yet? Or if not, any idea when it might be?
