Motorcycling Events Group Australia statement regarding COVID-19

All SMSP Ride Days & Phillip Island Ride Days will go ahead! Now, before everyone goes and gets upset thinking we are being cavalier in our approach to the well-publicised viral outbreak, we are aware of the potential dangers of the spread of any infectious disease, including the Corona Virus (COVID-19).

However, based upon the information currently available from the World Health Organisation (WHO), to reduce the spread of this disease and safeguard the citizens of affected countries, we believe that the nature of our Ride Days makes for a minimal risk of exposure.

We encourage everyone who attends our events to follow the protocols recommended by WHO, which include the following;

  • Washing hands thoroughly and frequently
  • Using hand sanitizer frequently
  • Avoid touching your own eyes, nose and mouth
  • Avoid physical touching of others, including shaking hands
  • Cover nose and mouth if coughing or sneezing, and wash hands immediately after
  • Avoid others who are coughing and sneezing
  •  Wear breathing protection – optional

Rest assured we are monitoring the situation constantly and will advise participants should this situation change, but for the time being, it’s “green for go” on your favourite motorcycling activity!
