We are now in Tier Four. ALL "MEETS" CANCELLED.
From Gov.UK website....
In tier 3:
  • you must not meet socially indoors or in most outdoor places with anybody you do not live with, or who is not in your support bubble, this includes in any private garden or at most outdoor venues
  • you must not socialise in a group of more than 6 in some other outdoor public spaces, including parks, beaches, countryside accessible to the public, a public garden, grounds of a heritage site or castle, or a sports facility – this is called the ‘rule of 6’
  • organised outdoor sport, and physical activity and exercise classes can continue, however higher-risk contact activity should not take place
Tier 2: The only difference for our Meets is that we can go to a pub, provided we have a 'substantial meal'. This will be interpreted differently by each landlady. The definition of substantial in my dictionary, as relating to food, means "sufficient and nourishing". As lean, fit cyclists in the middle of our ride (exercise) we should not overeat. Maybe we could get away with, say, scampi & chips and some empty plates? Or the mooted Scotch egg each. So, even if we have to sit in the garden it has to be better than a churchyard...
28/11/20: I enquired at the police station about the Tier 3 rules. They are happy with no more than six of us at the "Meets" from ANY household.
2/12/20: Disclaimer: My attitude is that if you are afraid of getting Coronavirus and passing it on to others in your bubble, then stay home!
Do your own risk assessments and don’t blame me for organising Meets.
We are rarely more than 6 due to Lurghi & weather. If you are more than 6th. and attendees decide to bend the rules, then I think it fair that the fine is shared.
Meet time is 1230 and if cold/wet we may not stay more than an hour.
