The FCC Board of Directors, after consulting with local medical experts, has given the go-ahead for ride leaders to hold group rides as long as proper precautions are taken. Riders must follow social distancing protocols issued by the State of Alaska.
Guidelines for riders and ride leaders:
(These apply to riders from different households)
– Riders are allowed to ride in a pace line, but riders in front must not clear their noses or spit. (Allowing pace lines contradicts earlier advice, but Alaska medical experts are considering a number of factors in allowing pace lines, such as the relatively low incidence of COVID-19 in Alaska and the dispersion of breath while outside and moving fast.) – When not moving, riders should stay at least 6 feet apart, more if they are breathing heavily. – Do not carpool to ride starts – Do not share equipment (such as clothes) – Any group snacks should be individually wrapped. – Use your common sense when facing unusual situations.
