DPH Rides begin, 2023 Kit Update
Just a quick note that Keith is back from the successful Gravelocity/VCC trip to West Virginia and looking to re-start the Saturday DPH rides. Check the calendar on the website, and sign up so we can see the overall interest. It’s a 9am start to accommodate the unusually cooler temperatures.
As well, Castelli has advised that we should expect delivery of the 2023 kit order to HQ on or around May 16th. Once we have the order sorted, a direct e-mail will be sent to all who ordered to advise pick up instructions.
We expect the ride calendar to expand to its usual format around mid May.

Velocity Cycling Club is following the lead of the Ontario Cycling Association (OCA) concerning cycling activities during the Covid-19 pandemic. Prior to May 29th, the OCA had cancelled all sanctioned events due to COVID – 19.
On May 29th the OCA followed in lock step with the Ontario government which has now permitted group riding with up to 5 participants provided they remain 2 metres apart. The OCA subsequently provided directions to permit sanctioned group riding of up to 5 riders to begin on June 4th. While this is positive news there are requirements to be followed including pre and post ride procedures for the club and riders to follow, PPE requirements for all riders to carry and a waiver is also required to be signed. All of these must be followed to permit sanctioned rides to begin and thus have insurance coverage available.
Your board will be evaluating these requirements and conclude on whether it makes sense to recommence VCC group rides along this timeline, a delayed timeline or to wait until there is further opening up of the restrictions. Watch your club e-mails for updates as the re-commencement of club activities progresses.
