Police see ‘unusually high activity’ from cycling groups despite Stay at Home rules


Police in Derbyshire say they’ve spotted cycling groups in matching outfits out on rural lanes.

‘We are patrolling all areas of the county and continue to see an unusually high volume of activity particularly in rural areas. None of us ever expected or wanted this to happen but the message is clear – stay at home.

‘Essential travel and local exercise does not include driving to locations and going for walks. It does not include lycra-clad leisure cycling on the now quieter roads.

‘It isn’t just about preventing the spread of the virus but also reducing the burden on essential services.

‘Lycra clad cyclists is in reference to what appeared to be members of cycling clubs in matching outfits riding in large groups along the 11 mile stretch of the A57 Snake Pass.’
