FYI, provincial COVID legislation says we need to be 3m apart during group activities. This restriction means that a proper learn to group ride isn’t achievable in our current re-opening stage. I suggest you defer this until the government and the OCA say it is okay to ride without the 3m restrictions in place. We should not be endorsing or officially leading any kind of ride that breaks these provincial restrictions.
I complitely agree that we need to follow provincial COVID regulations and not bend any restrictions currently in place. As a beginner, I don’t think I would be confortable riding closer than 3m to anybody at this point. Please, let me know if there are any learning activities available within the current OCA guidelines.
You can do unofficial get togethers and ride, but it is not looking like we are going to have official beginner club rides or club learn to group rides until we hit Stage 2 of re-opening. There are just too many restrictions still.
Stay tuned and watch for information. Gravel Rides should be coming soon.
Hey @Alex_Bloom I got my bike last June and joined WCC this year - so I am looking forward to “official rides” too. Until then, I would be happy to join you on a ride. LMK, you can find me on RidewGPS “Patrick McKeen” Cheers, Pat M.
