  During the summer months rides typically depart at 9.30am. In cooler months rides typically depart at 10am. Events above are typically run by the MRA (SAMRATS). Riders participating in non MRA rides (organised by others *) will need their own insurance, and must not assume responsibility of the event organiser, even though the organiser has some legal liability for the ride participants.

COVID-19 Restrictions
  Riders are reminded to adhere to COVID-19 restrictions on SAMRATS events. Social distancing and good hygiene are minimum requirements, be safe on the road and elsewhere.

SAMRATS Ride Guidelines
  Below are some guidelines used for SAMRATS Rides.
Here is a document outlining the SAMRATS Group Riding Guidelines published by Ken King.

Hot Weather
The general guidelines for hot weather is that rides may be cancelled if the forecast temperature is over 35C, and are usually cancelled if over 38C. The prevailing conditions (like wind and direction) and ride destination (north, south, hills) will also be a consideration.

The ride captain of the day has ultimate discretion on cancelling a ride due to weather. If you are uncertain please contact the ride captain if possible before heading out. If the ride captain formally cancels a ride, we will attempt to publish this information by 6pm on the evening before ride day.
