As up to 12 of us will be together in public places at the start, during the break and at the destination it is likely/possible we will be there at the same time as other riders/drivers/pedestrians. It is important we do not exceed our 12-person group and maintain a 2m social distance at all times. Only 6 people are allowed inside as a group, so we will have to split up or enter as individuals…
