SBRA Covid Guidelines
Suffolk Bicycle Riders Association (SBRA)
Group Ride Policy during COVID-19 Pandemic*


• SBRA rides will be limited to CLUB MEMBERS ONLY.
Do not participate in any SBRA ride if you are feeling ill.
• Proper social distancing of at least 6 feet must be maintained at the start and at all times during the ride, including rest stops, red lights, stop signs, “mechanical” stops, etc.; where this is not possible, face coverings (masks, Buffs, neck gaiters, etc.) must be worn and “up”. You must have a face covering with you at the start. If you do not, the ride leader must not allow you to ride with the group. “No Mask, No Ride”
• The Ride Leader will sign in all riders. Each rider must provide their full name, required phone numbers and SBRA user ID number.
Note: by allowing the SBRA Rider Leader to write your name on the Ride Sign-in Sheet and joining the ride, you are agreeing to the standard Release and Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk and Indemnity Agreement (“Agreement”) required on all SBRA rides.
• No more than TEN to TWELVE people in a group ride. This number will grow over time, but for now, it’s TEN to TWELVE (UPDATED, effective 9/1/20*).
• If more than TEN to TWELVE members show up for a ride, the ride must be split into two or more groups.
• If more than one group is riding the same route from the same start, they must start at spaced out times. Groups should not rejoin one another during the ride. If the second group gets too close to the first group, they must stop and wait for the first group to get further ahead. If the second group is not familiar with the route, they can stay close enough to the first group to allow them to follow but must keep as large a distance as possible. The first group should make sure they can see the second group behind them if the second group is not familiar with the route. If separated by a traffic light, the first group should slow up until they see the second group is once again following.
• Cyclists should ride in a single file at least 2 bike lengths apart, whenever possible. Paceline riding is NOT permitted.
• No spitting, snot-rockets or expelling fluids from your nose or mouth. Keep any tissues, handkerchiefs, etc. securely tucked inside your pockets.
• All riders must bring a face covering. Face coverings may be worn “down” while riding, but must be pulled “up” when going through busy small town areas, when passing oncoming pedestrians and in other situations where there is a real or perceived risk of infection. Buffs, neck gaiters and similar items have worked out well for many cyclists since they can easily be pulled up or down.
• Face coverings must be worn whenever social distancing cannot be maintained and any place where the group stops for more than 2 minutes.
• It is recommended that all riders carry their own personal hand sanitizer.
• Ride distances should take into account the limited availability of rest rooms and food stops.
• The foregoing may not be waived by individual ride leaders. Additional restrictions may be added by individual ride leaders with the same force and effect as the foregoing.
• As always, ride leaders have the right to ask any rider to leave the ride when rules are not followed.

In Addition: Besides the standard Waiver, SBRA will require all participants to acknowledge and agree that:
• Bicycle riding is inherently dangerous and that riding in a group can increase the participant’s chances of contracting COVID-19.
• The Participant will take reasonable precautions to minimize the spread of COVID-19 and will conduct himself or herself in accordance with SBRA requirements as well as the recommendations of public health officials.
• Appearances count. In addition to actually riding safely, we want at all times to appear to the public that we are riding safely. That means strict adherence to social distancing, face-covering-wearing and other requirements, including numerical limitations.
The Participant has read and understands all of the above and will abide by all of the terms and conditions of the ride waiver and the supplemental guidelines for group riding.

Join me for a ride on the first day of the club's "ride calendar" year.

This will be a C+ ride, with an average of 12.3 - 12.8, depending on the winds, riders, etc. We will ride around Holbrook, back through Ronkonkoma and then around Bohemia, where we will take our break at the Gourmet Bagel Co. on Lakeland Avenue (beverages, food, and a bathroom are available).  We will then head down to Sayville, loop back up to Bohemia, and then head back to the ride start. Adjustments to the route direction and/or distances may be made due to the prevailing winds and/or temperature changes, so there will not be cue sheets. We will be observing spacing rules, etc.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the ride start to "get yourself" ready.

NOTE #1You must be a club member to go on club rides.

NOTE #2: riders at this time are limited. You MUST text me with your name & SBRA Member Number if you want to ride. I will return the text: YES, you have a spot…orNO, Ride Filled...CELL #: 631-523-2129

The following change are in effect: 1- I am anticipating that there will be flooding on parts of Dune Road, so our usual route will be changed.  2.  We are leaving from a different area.   If you want to join this ride, text Bill G. at 631-356-3036, with your SBRA, emergency and cell numbers, your full name, and date of ride. Manorville Papa Josephs has been replaced by another restaurant, I don't remember its name, but it has the word Notte in it.  Its about 1/2 mile South of LIE, exit 70, on Rt. 111, across from the 7-11, KK, and McDonalds.  Park on Chapman, alongside the restaurant lot, not in the lot. There are some hills on this ride on Rt. 111. Check the ride calendar the day of the ride for changes, which will be posted by 07:45am.  Note: Change your clock the night before to Daylight Standard Time.  We will still be going to Quogue and Westhampton Beach. Mileage is expected to be between 30-35. If you have registered for this ride, and can't make it, pease let me know.
