Coronavirus update 16 June 2020
Currently all CTT club events are suspended up to and including 12 July 2020 and all open events are suspended up to and including 18 July 2020.
The safety of competitors and all those involved with the event must be paramount. It has to be made clear that competition can be resumed only if the government guidelines are relaxed sufficiently so as to allow for time trials to take place, and it is considered those guidelines can be fully adhered to regarding social distancing.
Whereas it is still not considered possible nor indeed appropriate to recommence CTT events as yet, it is anticipated that on or around 04 July the current restrictions on social distancing may be relaxed further. If this proves to be the case, Type B ?club events can be held from 06 July 2020 and Type A events from 18 July 2020.
As has been explained previously, it is emphasised that there is no pressure at all on clubs or organisers to hold their events. Whether to proceed with an event is entirely at the discretion of the relevant CTT district, the individual club and the individual promotor of the event.
Coronavirus update 31 March 2020
In view of the ongoing Government advice and guidance and in particular the guidance on social distancing, Cycling Time Trials (CTT) has taken the decision to extend the current suspension of all CTT events, (this includes all Type A and Type B events), up to and including 30 June 2020.
Coronavirus update 17 March 2020
In light of the government advice now given, Cycling Time Trials (CTT) has taken the decision to suspend all CTT events, (this includes all Type A and Type B events), with immediate effect up to and including Sunday 31 May 2020.
The decision will be subject to continued review and has been taken in the interests of organisers, competitors, all those who volunteer their time to make the events 'work', supporters and in the interests of the time trialling community as a whole.
Where possible, all are encouraged to maintain their own personal fitness and keep active during this time, while following government guidelines about safe distance and safe exercise environments.
CTT will continue to review and monitor government advice and will provide detailed updates in the coming weeks.
Social distancing and advice
Social distancing measures (as defined by Public Health England as spending more than 15 minutes and within a 2-metre distance talking to someone) are now advised not only for those who test positive or have symptoms, but in day to day life. The government is advising anyone with a 'new, continuous' cough or high temperature and those they live with that they need to self-isolate to help prevent the spread of the virus.
Guidance on coronavirus from the NHS is available here.
guidance can be found on the government website here.
Wash your hands
The World Health Organisation advises that all should wash their hands properly to avoid spread of coronavirus. WHO advise that one of the best and most basic protective measures that people can take against the coronavirus is to wash your hands frequently. On its website, WHO states: 'Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.'
