MAG - Motorcycling with good judgement and a postcode checker won’t end in tears

MAG - Press Release

Motorcycling with good judgement and a postcode checker won’t end in tears.

The Coalition of Motorcycling Organisations (COMO) says that good
judgement and a quick check of the restrictions and guidance that apply
in your part of the UK ensures that motorcycling remains an excellent
choice for travel, whatever tier you are in.

Following the latest changes to COVID regulations COMO has updated its
guidance for motorcyclists.  COMO emphasise that motorcycling offers a
more COVID secure way to undertake essential and permitted journeys than
public transport or car sharing. They advise that in England’s Tiers 1
and 2 up to six person, short group rides, can be undertaken. In Tier 3
riding is restricted to a solo experience, or with one other person. In
tandem with wider national guidelines, travelling between tiers is
discouraged unless there’s a specific reason to do so.

There is detail to consider, and COMO point out that all necessary COVID
security measures should be observed. The updated advice document gives
this information in detail.  Useful links are included to relevant
government website pages and the postcode checker to see what tier is in
place in any location.

Co-author of the document, Roger Bibbings says:  “We are keen to
emphasise that riders must show good judgement.  We are far enough into
this crisis that I believe we all understand the risks and how this
virus passes from one person to the next.  It seems to me that the
guidance is increasingly moving toward individuals making sound personal
judgement calls based on this knowledge.  Whilst we may need to curtail
or postpone some of our longer, more adventurous riding, there is no
real reason why we cannot continue to get much enjoyment from our bikes
so long as we remain COVID safe and stick within the rules where we live.”

Kevin Mulligan, speaking on behalf of the National Police Chiefs Council
(NPCC) lead for motorcycling said “We fully support this common sense
messaging.  There is no wish to stop riders getting as much from riding
as possible, whether that be for essential travel or recreation.  As
riders - and I too am a rider - we just need to show a degree of
constraint and good judgement.  Stay safe, stay sensible and enjoy the
ride.”
