Update issued Monday 19th July 2021:

From Monday 19 July most of the 'Social Distancing' and 'Face Mask' restrictions are being relaxed as set in law. It will in many instances be a personal choice as to whether a face mask is worn for example. In effect it's a change from 'Must' to 'Should'  However, with case numbers remaining high, it may well be advisable to maintain some social distancing and hygiene precautions, especially in enclosed spaces. Cycle 'group' size can now exceed 30 but groups should act responsibly and cautiously.
