Coronavirus (COVID-19) - SLAM Actions - Updated 13/05/2020

In line with advice from IAM RoadSmart, SLAM have with immediate effect (17/03/2020) taken the following actions to help protect members from the Covid-19 virus:

• Immediate cessation of Associate training, including observed rides and group training sessions (classroom, machine control and test brief).
• Cancellation of all face to face SLAM Social meetings - but keep an eye out for online events that we will be organising on a regular basis.
• Cancellation of all SLAM organised rides.

Government guidance for “lockdown" has recently been changed, notably with respect to leisure activity. The recent MCN article we wrote to you about gives more details. Please remember, you must still maintain social distancing at all times. Sadly, this still does not change the position for SLAM activities at present.

When you first go out on your bike, please take extra care as you will not have ridden for some time, and other road users - bikers and motorists will all be in the same position. Remember, for the past few weeks, pedestrians and cyclists having become used to having the roads to themselves!

We will of course update you further as the situation develops, and we understand how we will be able to start activities again.

Stay safe
