TaG Cycling Outdoor Covid-19 Safety Plan

TaG Cycling Outdoor Covid Safety Plan  
The following addresses concerns that may arise with TaG Cycling Group rides or outdoor classes and the potential risks associated in relation to Covid -19 virus 
All TaG Cycling members are to have read and understood the guidelines below 

1.1          PROXIMITY RISKS

Ensuring TaG Club members are provided with all opportunities to keep a safe 2m+ distance from each other

  • All members must at all times maintain a distance of at least 2 meters; before, during and after the ride, exceptions will be members of a “family bubble”
  • All members must remain 2 meters behind the rider in front of them as measured seat to seat
  • All members must pass riders maintaining 2 meters distance, while also ensuring that passing is safe
  • Meeting locations for the start of all group rides will be spaced out from other groups, in a location large enough so riders in each riding group (max 10 ) can socially distance
  • Meeting location times may be spaced 10-15 minutes apart to ensure each group has ample space from other TaG club groups riding a similar route 
  • When stopping to feed, rest or do other social activity, all group members must continue to maintain 2 meters distance. If riders stop at a cafe or restaurant they must follow provincial guidelines with no more than 6 riders to a table. 

1.2          CONTACT RISKS

Ensuring TaG Club Members reduce the risk of potential spread

  • Members are not to share any food, drink or other equipment
  • Members are to only feed when stopped, or when no other cyclists are located behind them
  • Members should bring individual hand sanitizer
  • Members are not required to wear masks, but may do so if they prefer
  • Do not touch your face, eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a disposable tissue or the crease of your elbow when you sneeze or cough
  • Practice enhanced hygiene, including regular cleaning of equipment
  • In situations where riders must stop to provide assistance, it is recommended that they follow provincial health standards for close personal interaction.

1.3          GROUP RISKS

Ensuring TaG Club Members can safely ride in groups together

  • Riding Groups are to have no more than 10 riders
  • All members must pre-register on the TaG Schedule 
  • All members must have agreed to the new  TaG Cycling Waiver on their TaG account (amended with Covid-19 Rider Declaration June 17, 2020)
  • Any member who is not registered on the TaG Schedule can not ride in a group
  • Group rides should always be single file unless it is completely safe to ride two-abreast while maintaining 2 meters distance, and not endangering group riders, other vehicles, or any other people/obstacles

1.4          ILLNESS RISKS

Members must not to ride if any of the following apply

  • Anyone who has had symptoms of COVID-19 in the last 14 days. Symptoms include fever, chills, new or worsening cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, and new muscle aches or headache
  • Anyone directed by Public Health to self-isolate
