    Meet-up & Ride out - CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

    Hi guys - not sure where to post this so thought Iíd start here.

    CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) Rules & Procedures for meet-ups & ride outs.

    As you all agree, this is a terrible Nasty disease thatís spreading Rapidly and killing thousands.  Firstly my heart goes out to all those affected.

    In the UK we are at the start of the riding season when many of us are looking forward to getting out on our bikes to ride & meet-up with other.

    Iím looking forward to riding out but donít know whatís going to happen in terms of restriction on gatherings or lockdown.

    So I thought Iíd start a thread on sensible precautions we could take to minimise and reduce the risk to ourselves and others.  This will affect us all.

    Iím not sure if itís fortunate that we wear protective gear and wether it would help in stopping the spread. Iím sure the covering of mouth and nose with a scarf, neckerchief or bandana etc would act as a shield even with helmet removed.

    I see on the news people whom cue for shopping are to keep a distance of 1 meter apart.

    Whilst we are waiting for this terrible event to play out perhaps we could all agree on some basic rules & principle whilst we are out and about on our bikes. These being without favour or malice intended as we greet others.

    I suggest:-
    No handshakes - hugs - kisses (or close contact)
    Keeping 1meter apart
    Keeping mouth & nose covered (loose neckerchief) whilst in close proximity to others.
    Exchanging welcomes with a nod gesture, arm or leg bump.

    If we act in this way then surely we can still have some enjoyment & freedom without upsetting other.

    Also, as a community of bikers, what also can we do for others in need. How can we assist - food shopping - checking on people.....

    What do you all think? :159:

    I ask the moderators to happily take over this thread and expand / amend accordingly to the advice given by the government.

    To help get us through this time, the Iron Butt Association has approved a certification ride titled the COVID-1000.

    This is a team event. 

    2 riders start from different locations (with appropriate documentation, dated business receipts, etc). One rider is carrying a roll of toilet paper. The other carries a bottle of hand sanitizer.
    The 2 riders meet up at a midpoint at least 500 miles from their start location.
    They perform a no-touch COVID survival product exchange (pictures for documentation required).
    Each rider returns to their start location and obtain appropriate documentation for the finish.
    The round trip must be completed in less than 24 hours and the total mileage must be greater than 1000 miles.

    After submitting to and validation by the Iron Butt Association, each rider will receive a special certificate.

    I understand , When I ride on a IBA ride Iím alone.
    With everything thatís going on it was probably a good idea to shut it down.

    If somebody was infected in their area and went to another area wasnít that would be bad.
