The WAERA SMC met last night to discuss the latest COVID-19 information.
Although the current government restrictions may not theoretically prevent the running of endurance rides in an open-air environment, there remains the underlying difficulties of enforcing the current government recommendations of social distancing during an event and thus increasing the risk of community transfer. As the health of our members, officials, volunteers, their families and the extended community is our top priority, we have regrettably made the decision to cancel all WAERA rides until the end of April 2020 at which time we will reassess the situation, unless the current recommendations are revoked in which case we will reassess this decision sooner.
While we understand that this decision will be extremely disappointing to all members, especially as this is our Quilty year, we have made this decision in the best interests of the club and all it’s members and ask all members to respect and support this decision.
If you're wanting to get planning for the 2020 Ride season, go to the Calendar tab and have a look at the 2020 Draft Calendar and start planning.
See you all on track.
Please make yourself familiar with the Ride rule changes listed here under the Aera Rule Book .
