Hi all

The message from the authorities seems pretty clear -minimize group activities wherever possible.

While group numbers of 10 are presently still acceptable to authorities we believe it would not only be hard to manage but also not in the best interests of the respective group members.

After discussion with David Friend we have decided to cancel all Monday(Easy Riders) and Thursday(Leisurely riders) rides, until further notice.

Hopefully, pretty soon , we can pick this up where we left off.

regards
Paul & Jacky Jaynes






Easy Riders have decided

IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING MONDAY'S RIDE...

Due to ongoing developments with the Covid 19 pandemic, and the latest social gathering restrictions issued by the Prime Minister tonight, the ride for tomorrow, 23rd WILL NOT proceed. The extension of restrictions on non essential organised social gatherings at a national level aimed directly at reducing the spread of infections within the community, has lead me to believe that it would be unwise to proceed with the ride. I believe that we should do all that is possible to comply with the guidelines to protect all in the community, especially the vulnerable.

For those who do not receive this message I will be in attendance at Crummunda Park at 7.30 am to speak to anyone that arrives to join the ride and explain the situation to them.

thanks all
