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 FIFTEEN people in a group ride (now back to normal SBRA guidelines). (UPDATED 9/1/20 and 3/26/21)
• If more than FIFTEEN members show up for a ride, it is recommended that the ride 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.
• 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.

This is the modified Charlie Birds route starting from VMP.  This ride is to increase milage and endurance for the good weather ahead; so let's keep the speed under control as this is the most miles many have done this year.  Traditional deli stop in Cutchogue (mile 30) and 51 & 111 on return.  Check the route.

A lesson from previous experience: If you don't know where you're going, Any Road can take you there!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r8fFdc-karA  (Look for Sir Jackie Stewart as the chauffeur(!) and scenes from the Magical Mystery Tour).

We'll start from the South Street School and use one of the northern routes to Briermere Farms. Listen for the directions, if you want to get there with the group.  The return takes us south, eventually reaching Route 24. Again many ways to get there, but only one true path for this ride!

So get ready for a paceline ride, with some long stretch runs. Remember to give hand signals when getting off the front of the paceline, and ride in a smooth predictable fashion.  Remember to bring a mask for any stops.

 And now a rare live version, before the SBRA yadda yadda: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkhWj5OFeC4

Allons-y!

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 FIFTEEN people in a group ride (now back to normal SBRA guidelines). (UPDATED 9/1/20 and 3/26/21)
• If more than FIFTEEN members show up for a ride, it is recommended that the ride 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.
• 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.

The start is just off of route 25 in Jamesport, if driving East take the turn just after the Valero gas station.  No bathrooms at the start but we will stop ar Veterans Park (mile 6).

There is a wonderful view from the end of Nassau point but if you don't like big rolling hills you can always wait at the beach.  The speed will be in the B- range, trying to keep within the 15 - 17 cruising speed, slower on the uphills, faster down.   We will. of course, wait for everyone after the hill.  If it is very windy and/or I am tired I would appreciate help with the pulling, (completly optional).  The main stop will be at Scoops and Grinds at mile 17, where there is good coffee, baked goods etc (maybe ice cream).  We will also check out the ice cream shop in Mattituck (mile 33) just in case you want ice cream.

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 FIFTEEN people in a group ride (now back to normal SBRA guidelines). (UPDATED 9/1/20 and 3/26/21)
• If more than FIFTEEN members show up for a ride, it is recommended that the ride 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.
• 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 this car free scenic D ride along the new eastern section of the Ocean Parkway Greenway. We will ride from Captree State Park to Tobay Beach (18 mile round trip). If it becomes windy we will shorten it to Gilgo Beach (15 mile round trip).I haven't ridden it myself, but I hear its spectacular. So lets get out and enjoy it before the crowds appear.

A few Notes:

1.   Start at Captree State Park, after the toll booth go around the circle to the northern main parking lot, not the overlook lot mentioned in the actual start info. There will be a pavilion of some sort and tons of bike racks at the start of the path. This was suggested by the park office.

2.   There will be an $8 parking fee unless you have an empire pass

3.    If the forecast becomes unfavorable (windy) Saturday morning, I will cancel and switch to a 15 mile meander from Timber Point Golf Course to Islip Beach, start time also 10:30. Please be sure to check the website before leaving for the ride.

Please bring water, spare tube, and a snack if you wish, to enjoy trailside.

There will be a bathroom at Captree State Park.

As Always,  please check back here for any changes before leaving for the ride

We will be observing social distancing, and you must have a face covering with you.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the ride start, so we can get rolling on time

I'm limiting the ride to 12 riders, Please text me with your Name, SBRA Member Number & Emergency Contact Number. I will return your text confirming your spot on the ride.

CELL: 631-708-7966 (Before 9:00 pm if Possible Please)
