Velo Ride August 14
The ride will start at 9am at the Olympiette Centre

Neither Ed or Kevin will be available to lead the ride this week. Please consider "raising your hand" to volunteer to be a group Ride Leader today.

Rider Leaders must know the planned riding route for the day and will be responsible to take charge if any mishaps occur during the ride. Know the Emergency Action Plan (below) and implement it when necessary. Ride Leaders ensure the group rides "no-drop." and slows the overall pace as needed to let riders catch up.

The Alberta Bicycle Association (ABA) has given us specific protocols to follow while conducting all club group rides.

Failure to follow these protocols could negate the terms of our group insurance. Our group insurance provides you additional health coverage beyond basic Alberta Health Services (AHS) coverage.

For all club rides we conduct, EVERY rider must be a member of Velocity Cycling Club to participate. If you aren't a member, then EVERYONE'S group insurance coverage gets negated.

In general, this is what we expect for group rides:

• Preregister your name, email and phone number to facilitate any contact tracing that might be become necessary in the 2-week period post-ride

• Just prior to riding, you will be asked a list of COVID Screening questions to ensure you are clear to ride with us that day (you'll also be asked those same questions on this form)

• YOU MUST be completely self-supporting during the ride, with all food, hydration, and necessary repair tools. Nothing should be shared among riders in the group

• YOU should have your own personal bottle of hand sanitizer on your person, should any emergency inter-person contact be necessary

• Riders should arrive at most 15 minutes before the scheduled start time and MUST observe 2m physical distancing from other riders until the ride has started

• Ride Leaders should have Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including a face mask, nitrile gloves and hand sanitizer and be prepared to handle any roadside basic medical emergencies. Ride Leaders will ensure the group is following all the ABA group ride protocols.

• YOU MUST use good respiratory etiquette (i.e., sneezing or coughing into the crook of your elbow, no spitting, no purposeful clearing of nasal passages, uncovered coughing or sneezing within the group). If any of these practices are necessary you must safely drop 20 m to the rear of the group

COVID-19 Vaccination and Precautions
Though partial and full COVID-19 vaccinations are not requirements to participate in this group ride, Velocity Cycling Club highly encourages you to get vaccinated. Full 2-dose COVID-19 vaccination of more than 80% of the population will allow all of us to return to our regular life routines, including many of the post-ride socialization with our cycling friends.

Please get fully vaccinated to remove the risk of COVID-19 from your life and the lives of all of us. Have a conversation with your personal physician if you are still unsure which, if any, vaccination is the correct one for you.

YOU MUST use good respiratory etiquette (i.e., sneezing or coughing into the crook of your elbow, no spitting, no purposeful clearing of nasal passages, uncovered coughing or sneezing within the group). If any of these practices are necessary you must safely drop 20 m to the rear of the group

If YOU ARE FEELING UNWELL (any cold virus or COVID-19 symptoms of any kind), please do not attend the ride, even if you've signed up. As a smart athlete, you should know better anyway than to try training through a viral infection of any variety.

Emergency Action Plan
Always carry your ID.

If any mishap happens to you or another rider in your group:

1. Ensure you are safely off the road.
2. Call 911
3. Station a rider to direct traffic away from the scene.
4. While waiting for 911 help to arrive, administer any first aid you know that will help.
5. Send a cyclist for help if necessary, or to direct emergency services to the site.
6. Call Head Coach, KEVIN ROKOSH at (780) 999-6052 to inform him of the situation (Please put this into your phone now)
