Statement on Covid-19
On behalf of ACU
It is with regret that the ACU are suspending all competition and social activity until 30th April 2020, but this will be constantly reviewed. This is in response to the emerging guidance issued by HM UK Government in response to the outbreak of COVID-19.
All permits for events during this time will be cancelled and reimbursed in full to the organising club/ promoter. As the National Governing Body would ask all ACU Members to act responsibly and follow the Government’s guidance during this difficult time. We have a responsibility and duty of care to our staff who will be working from home, so please be patient with any queries you may have.
As of writing (17th March 2020) HM Government have advised:
- – Persons to work from home where possible
- – People over the age of 70 to minimise social contact
- – Emergency services will not support mass gatherings
- – Stop non-essential travel
- – Avoid pubs, clubs, restaurants and cinemas

Thank you to everybody for supporting Sheffield & Hallamshire MCC with the 2nd running of ‘The Hallamshire Trial’. The weather conditions on Friday and Saturday hampered us somewhat but fortunately the water level dropped so we could have a trial – a hard one at that! The consolation is that it was about as slippery as it gets so hopefully next year it will be a bit more favourable. Well done to everybody who persevered and finished the trial and well done to all class winners as there were some superb scores in the tough conditions. Many thanks to the land owners and observers as we would have no trial without them. Thanks to the signing on and results team, the course setting team and anybody else who helped in any way at all. See you all next year.
We would love to hear your feedback on the trial and what you thought to the severity of the sections: https://forms.gle/piaoRJckDufzCMV29

Entries for our road trial – The Hallamshire Trial on Sunday 27th October 2019 will open at 9am on Monday 23rd September.

The new start venue will be Cherry Tree Farm, Cowley Lane, Holmesfield, Dronfield S18 7SD. We have some brand new sections which have never been used before and some of the old favourites so it looks like another great event. There are all the usual Normandale classes – Over 40, 50 & 60 + Air cooled mono and twinshock. We also have non championship classes for all abilities. Entries close on 21st October at midnight unless they are full before. Entries are via the ACU Online entry system only – https://www.ride-acu.uk/secure/login.aspx – Entries are limited to 125 riders so don’t hang about!
