VCC continuously reviews its ride schedule to match with the changing restrictions imposed by COVID-19 as mandated by the OCA and provincial regulators
Velocity Cycling Club is following the lead of the Ontario Cycling Association (OCA) concerning cycling activities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The club will continually monitor the restrictions and effect them into our ride schedule.
Our membership in 2020 was made aware of additional procedures to be undertaken during group riding while COVID remains present but it is worth mentioning again that:
- pre and post ride procedures for the club and riders to follow including social distancing including no touching, all rides must be discreet (no staggered starts) and no riders can be substituted during a ride
- specific PPE requirements for all riders to carry including disposable gloves, a mask, hand santizer and a first aid kit
- a COVID waiver is required to be signed
to name just a few. All procedures must be followed to permit sanctioned rides to continue and thus have your insurance coverage available.
2021 has started in a similar manner and these protocols should also be considered when riding in non-sanctioned rides.
VCC Group rides
We will continue to review our ride schedule as we work through the applicable and changing restrictions. Please look for our e-mail updates or use the calendar on the website to see the options available.
Reserving a spot for a ride is simple with the RSVP system in our calendar.
Feel free to read the current OCA release below or await further update from the Board.
