COVID-19 Update

VCC continues to review its ride schedule — we are currently at up to 20 riders maximum per ride although demand has not reach these levels

Velocity Cycling Club is following the lead of the Ontario Cycling Association (OCA) concerning cycling activities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The OCA is progressively increasing the number of riders permitted on group rides now based on the Stage of the re-opening that the area is in. Initially 5, then 10, then 15 and now at 20 although demand for 20 has yet to be reached. 

As members are aware of additional procedures to be undertaken during group riding while COVID remains present and is active 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 and provided to the club for its record keeping

to name just a few. All procedures must be followed to permit sanctioned rides to continue and thus have your insurance coverage available. Also, many of these procedures will likely remain with us for the remainder of the year and also should be considered when riding in your non-sanctioned rides.

Group rides 

We are continuing to review our ride schedule as we work through our reopening. 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 now simple with the RSVP system in our calendar.

Feel free to read the current OCA release below or await further update from the Board.
