The Coalition of Motorcycling Organisations (COMO) has examined legislation and guidance for the new lockdown in England. If you are not required to self-isolate, the rules do permit riding alone or with one other individual. You are still subject to the social distancing rules and other measures.

Many riders have been asking whether riding alone is allowed under the new lockdown rules. The government has clearly stated that riding as essential travel is allowed. We looked into rules on riding for leisure and mental well-being, which are not so clear.

We have studied both the legislation and the guidance and have concluded that the rules do permit riding for pleasure, alone or with a mate.

You can ride for recreation on public roads so long as you are:
- on your own
- with one person from another household, or
- with the people you live with (your household) or your support bubble

Bikers congregating in groups is not allowed under the legislation and will draw unwanted attention, as will any reckless riding. Please use good judgement and avoid any action that will adversely affect the reputation of motorcycling.

We will publish a revised version of the Covid-safe motorcycling guidelines once we understand the situation after the current lockdown period expires.

The Coalition of Motorcycling Organisations membership consists of representatives from the British Motorcyclists Federation (BMF), the Motorcycle Action Group (MAG), the Vintage Motorcycle Club (VMCC), the Trail Riders Fellowship (TRF), IAM RoadSmart, the Auto Cycle Union (ACU), the Triumph Owners’ Motorcycle Club (TOMCC) and Biker Down UK.
