You are not supposed to have “organized” outdoor activities until Stage 1, which will happen around June 14th and allow 10 people.
But tracks and bike trails are open now for up to 5 people.
So … what does this mean?
Basically we have to consult with the OCA and find out about insurance coverage. I am assuming we are not allowed to organize anything until we officially hear otherwise, but there is nothing stopping you and 4 other people from going out.
FYI all, the OCA has updated their website - basically no change. So we still can’t organize official club rides until at least after June 2nd.
But I’ll keep posting the road and gravel flyby routes. I’ve been having fun, watching the road ahead to look for oncoming riders. It’s neat to see others out on the road and know you’re not alone on the route, even if sometimes it’s just a quick wave to someone else in club kit going the other way.
As for the group limits, I wholeheartedly think riding in small groups of 5 or less is overall a lot safer than riding completely alone. Just remember to keep your distance, and obviously be careful on spacing if you need to go into a store to refill bottles etc. And watch your distance if you’re maybe chatting in the parking lot at the ride start or end.
