We are just finalizing our COVID-19 restart plan. Our focus will be mainly on physical distancing (Elimination). Where that’s not possible additional safeguards will be in place.
As lessons are delivered outdoors, appropriate areas with space to maneuver the bikes that keep both the students and instructor safe will be selected.
Our instructor will carry hand-sanitizer and gloves to be used if they need to touch your bike or equipment.
Our instructor will carry a non-medical face mask to be used at any time when 2m physical distancing is not possible, such as in a first aid situation, etc.
Students will be requested to bring their own hand-sanitizer and non-medical face mask to each lesson.
All students (or their guardians) will be asked to self-monitor their own health and inform us when and as needed.
We will be requesting that students NOT ATTEND a lesson if they feel ill or have COVID-19 symptoms, with any coughing or sneezing no matter how minor or have been in contact with a sick person within the last 14 days.
We will continue to follow closely the orders and recommendations of the Provincial Health Officer and WorkSafe BC and will adjust our operations, if needed, as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves.
As we begin the slow journey to opening up the BC economy we are looking at what steps we’ll need to have in place in order to provide one-on-one private lessons starting in late May or early June. Recreation/sports are able to re-open in Phase 2 under enhanced protocols after the May long weekend. More to come in the coming days.
We bundled up and got the rain gear out for one last TORCA Beginner group ride at Bert Flinn on Saturday, November 23rd. We had a mix of new regulars, some old regulars from years past, as well as, some new faces.
This will likely be the last group ride we’ll lead this year but look forward to perhaps making these a regular event in the New Year.
If you had the chance to join us on one of our group rides or would be interested in coming out to one, if they start up again, in the new year – leave a comment below.
We had an awesome turn out on Saturday, Nov. 09th on Burke Mountain. We were able to split the group into a beginner and a beginnermedite. Mix of trails gave everyone the chance to ride on some wet trails and to challenge their riding skills.
This was to be the last of our little mini-series but we’ve decided to do an encore! There is going to be another ride back at Bert Flinn on Saturday, Nov. 23rd at 10:00 am.
It is a free event. All you have to do is fill out a waiver for TORCA if you plan to attend. If you have already filled one out – no need to fill out another one.
Another great Beginner Group ride with our friends at TORCA. This week’s ride was through some of the trails at Bert Flinn Park in Port Moody. If you haven’t ridden these trails check them out on Trailsforks. The trails are nothing but Hero Dirt right now so it’s a great time to get out and ride before the winter rains hit.
There is one more to go next Saturday starting from 9:30 am to approx. 11:30 am.
It is a free event. All you have to do is fill out a waiver for TORCA if you plan to attend.
