Effective October 23, 2020: FVBSC COVID-19 GROUP RIDE GUIDELINES

Rider Guidelines:

  1. In accordance with the IDPH guidelines, each group shall consist of no more than 25 cyclists.
  2. Riders must adhere to social distancing.
  3. Riders may elect to wear a mask while riding - this is a personal decision. However, you must bring a mask with you to wear at any rest stop.
  4. Riders may be club members and/or guests (guests are required to sign the standard club waiver).
  5. Riders are required to RSVP to the leader by 8pm the night before a ride. 

Rest & Meal Stop Guidelines:

Rest and meal stops follow the IDPH guidelines, in addition to whatever stipulations the facility has outlined for its patrons. When entering facilities, riders may be required to wear a mask to place the order and use the facilities, and food may need to be eaten outside in a socially distant manner. Some outlets may require guests to pay with a credit card instead of cash.


Leader Guidelines:
  1. Leaders must follow the FVBSC Group Ride guidelines.
  2. Leaders will ask guests to sign club waiver.
  3. Leaders will create a list of all cyclists for each ride, in the event that contact tracing may be required at a later date.
  4. Leaders may elect to allow less than 25 riders per group.
  5. Leaders will review guidelines with riders at the start.
  6. Leaders should spell out as many details of the ride as possible in the event listing, particularly if it will traverse areas that may be congested such as the local trails. Riders need as much information as possible to assess the social distancing aspect of the ride.
  7. Leaders may request or identify a sub leader in the event listing.
