Club Activities Resume June 8th

We are so happy to announce that official club rides and skill clinics are starting again! 

Of course there are a lot of changes this year but STARTING THIS WEEK, we are offering weekly INTERVAL (road) training rides and MOUNTAIN BIKE GROUP rides. Group road rides (Monday Night Rides) will not resume while physical distancing rules are in effect.

We are super excited to start our season with you. As expected, there are a number of Covid-19 protocols in place to keep everyone safe.

Riding Together Rules

  • All riders must pre-register to ride 24 hours in advance
  • All rides are limited to 10 participants, including the Ride Leader 
  • ALL RIDERS MUST BE CURRENT VELODONNAS MEMBERS. If you haven’t renewed your membership yet, here is the link:!/events/velodonnas-cycling-2020
  • Practice physical distancing by staying a minimum of two (2) meters away from other people at all times, while on the trail and in the parking lot
  • No passing on single-track trail (mountain bike)
  • When meeting another rider coming in the opposite direction, you must move off the trail to allow the other rider to pass
  • Ride behind riders of higher ability, to help minimize congestion of the trails (mountain bike)
