Coronavirus Notice

INFORMATION FOR RIDERS

Issued on 11-03-2020 – this supersedes any previously issued version 

The safety and wellbeing of our volunteers and riders is our priority and we will take all necessary precautions to ensure their continued welfare. As with many organisations, we are actively monitoring the situation with regards the outbreak of Covid-19 coronavirus and are reviewing and following the guidelines of Public Health England.  The advice from the health authorities has not changed, so, at the moment, our ride will be going ahead as planned and standard terms and conditions on bookings continue to apply.

If you are planning on riding the Tour de Manc and you are coming from an area that has been directly affected by the coronavirus AND if you are showing symptoms similar to those associated with the virus (for example:  fever, cough, breathlessness), we ask that you do not attend the event on May 3rd and instead call NHS 111 for further advice and instruction.  

For further information, please refer and adhere to the advice given by Public Health England.

The Tour de Manc team are taking steps to minimise the risk of contagion, at registration and during the ride.

Rest assured, we will continue to act quickly should we be advised or required to do so and will take precautions to protect the welfare of our volunteers and riders.

We ask all our riders to observe high standards of personal hygiene whilst attending the Tour de Manc. There are simple things you can do to help prevent the spread of the virus, including:

  • Covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • Putting used tissues in a bin immediately
  • Washing your hands with soap and hot water regularly, and using hand sanitiser gel
  • Trying to avoid close contact with people who are unwell
  • Avoiding touching your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.

Throughout the event locations we will place additional hand sanitisers in convenient locations for riders, and we politely ask that you use them regularly.

If you do feel unwell during your ride, please abort your ride and advise ride control by phone. Please maintain a safe distance of two metres where possible between riders.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
