Hi everyone.

The restrictions have been eased in regional Victoria so now we can ride.

Groups of 10 are now allowed to gather / ride.

There's no restriction on why, where, or how far we can ride as long as it remains in regional Victoria.

There's indoor dining, but strict rules apply about sitting apart or in a group. You'll need to contact the cafe first and discuss arrangements with them before you arrive.

So, the club returns to this policy:

"The advice from DHHS to the Club is that organized rides of 10 people can now occur and be regarded as ‘recreation’, provided that social distancing rules are observed, and the club maintains a list of participants for possible future reference. So, the Club will be organizing a number of limited ride events under these conditions:

  • The rides are open to financial members only, and up to 10 people.
  • Members must be registered as ‘attending’ under the event on our website. Members cannot just ‘turn up’ unannounced and expect to have a place.There isn’t an option of ‘might attend’.
  • Any pillions must also be Members, and from the same rider household, and would count as two people. Make sure the ride organizer knows if you are bringing a pillion and using two places.
  • Social distancing of 1.5 metres must be practiced at the initial meeting point, and whenever the ride stops. Rides will be organized to ensure that a meal break will give Members access to take away facilities.
  • As the responsible Club representative, the ride organizer may cancel the ride at any stage if they consider the social distancing requirements are not being followed."
