COVID-19 Health and Safety

The health and safety of our riders, volunteers, and host communities are the highest priority. 

All of our 2021 rides and events will be held in compliance with Maine CDC guidelines, recommendations from the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development, as well as US Cycling’s assessment tools and event guidelines. 

As of April 2021, these are the precautions we will take and will expect all participants to adhere to at our events: 

  • Limiting ride capacity to adhere to state guidelines (currently 100 maximum for outdoor gatherings).
  • Requiring all participants to wear a face mask that covers the nose and mouth at all times when not riding.
  • At least 20 feet of physical separation between riders when riding, and six feet of separation when stopped or not riding, unless they are in the same family or “pod.” 
  • Limited, socially distanced post-ride activities.
  • No large meals or extended mass gatherings such as performances, etc. 
  • Signage and infrastructure to guide one-way travel and 6 ft distancing through event registration.
  • Having hand sanitizer (60% alcohol) and/ or hand washing stations available. 
  • Requiring a completed questionnaire covering symptoms and risk factors from all riders at ride registration.  
  • Food vendors should wear face coverings, practice hand hygiene, use barriers or tables to maintain physical distancing to the extent possible, and ensure that patrons do not crowd sales area. If food is provided, any vendors or catering services should refer to the food and drink service checklist.

We are monitoring these guidelines on a monthly basis, and will be adjusting them at all of our 2021 events based on the most up-to-date information available. Thank you for helping us make our 2021 events as safe as possible.
