Club Events post Lockdown
The CTT have now revised
the season's start date to 15th July, meaning that our normal club season is
reduced to 9 events. In order to minimise potential spread of Covid-19 and as
far as possible respect the 2m rule we intend to alter the way we run the remaining
events of the 2020 season. Both 1st and 2nd claim members can enter.
This is how it will work:
Club members will be issued with 'squad numbers' which will be worn for the
rest of the season. Go to numbers
to see your own number. Numbers are considered a major virus spreader so the
least handling the better. Riders will retain them and wear them until the
season end. Riders can enter events through the booking system as before,
choosing any available number which will be their actual start number. They
will then have to remember their number for that event.
Note: It is a CTT rule that riders should wear numbers and, being fluorescent,
if worn correctly they are an added safety feature.
Signing-on is a CTT requirement, but is another potentially hazardous business
as close proximity is unavoidable. We will have a single form for each rider
containing a list of all the remaining events for riders to sign in advance.
To download it go to signing-on
form. Ideally download the form, sign it and return it
electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org . Alternatively bring it to the first
Riders should not
arrive more than 20mins before start time.
Hand-sanitiser to be available at sign-on
No items to be stored safely during event, eg "can you just put my waterproof/keys/bottle
in your car till I finish" - no we cannot!
We want to eliminate cash payments so PayPal is the obvious answer.
You don't need a PayPal account, just go to PayPal on our homepage.
Riders can pay by PayPal, ideally lumpimg payments together as we pay less
commission that way.Each individual event costs £3.50 or
for the rest of the season: ie. £22.13 (ie. 9/24 of £59).
Riders who have already paid upfront for the season to be credited with £36.87
for next season (ie. 15/24 of £59).
No refunds to be given for membership. (For info on Teas - see below).
Marshals will be required as normal, but special provisions are required.
For a more detailed explanation go to marshalling.
Marshals should ideally wear face covering when in close contact with others
and bring their own fluorescent jackets/clothing or similar.
There will be no pushers-off. Start timekeeper to maintain 2m distance.
- The Finish
Riders to call out their race number at the finish (NOT the
number they are wearing).
Riders should not stop at the finish and ask for their times as we do not
want riders congregating at the finish. (just add 10 secs to the time on the
No congregating after the event as no results or sneak previews will be given
at the end of the ride.
After the event we will display a photo of the provisional results via the
RRCC WhatsApp group. The official results to be available on the website the
No refreshments at the finish. Riders who have paid upfront for season's teas
to be credited with full £4 for next season's teas.
The club will provide PPE for people involved in running the event.
- Private Entries
Because of the close proximity risks in processing private entries we will
not accept private entries for the remainder of the 2020 season. Go to private
entries for he reasons and for other options.
