COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS

If we all do our part, we can make the return to group cycling as safe as possible! Please take a minute to review these safe cycling protocols.

HAND WASHING-SANITIZE STATIONS

We’ll have extra sanitizing stations available at all Rest Stops and Meal Areas. Please use these before proceeding to the food or beverage areas. Hand washing or sanitizing stations will be near all portable rest stop toilets and will be available at St. Paul’s Church for registration and check-in. We will also have disposable gloves available at the front of the Saturday Lunch Buffet line.

IF YOU FEEL ILL, OR COME INTO CONTACT WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS COVID-19, STAY HOME!

We want to ride with you, but we also want to provide a safe atmosphere for our volunteers, staff and your fellow cyclists. If you are showing symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, shortness of breath, headache, etc.) or have come into contact with someone who has COVID-19, please stay home. We look forward to riding with you at a future Fall Foliage Bike Festival. If you catch COVID or come into contact with some who has it right before the ride, please contact us for details on a future ride credit.
