2020 COVID Crusher “Episode” 2

August 31, 2020 - September 6, 2020

This riding camp is a week-long series of rides in the Edmonton area from Monday, August 31, to Sunday, September 6.

Weekday rides will be about 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 hours long and begin between 3:00pm and 4:00pm. We can take advantage of the later sunsets to get some big weekday rides accomplished. If your work hours are a bit flexible, and/or you are working from home, I hope you can join us. Weekend rides will start 9:00am to 10:00am. Sunday will be a big ride, in the range of 160km. You’ll have the September long weekend Monday to recover.

I’ll implement these daily group rides to make sure everyone is kept safe, following all ABA and AHS guidelines and public health orders.

This means:

  • Pre-registration is mandatory
  • No more than 15 riders can register
  • Cohorting will most likely not be attempted, because Edmonton’s COVID case numbers are trending in the WRONG direction
  • That means physical distancing will be enforced at all times

If you’d like to participate, please click on the COVID Crusher Camp Registration to sign up TODAY!
