After so many tour cancellations this season due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, your 2020 Touring Events season is now underway. We have been given a reprieve by the Quebec government and by the OCA. As a result, we are pleased to be able to offer our Eastern Townships Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu tour again this year. Although the Auberge is under new management, they are still able to offer us the same terms and conditions as past years with the exception of no longer being able to provide the inclusive breakfast.
Registration and additional information on the Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu page.
Here are the details for our upcoming first outing of the year!
We thank you for your patience over the past few months as the COVID-19 situation has limited our activities. With the province moving into Phase 2 of the reopening plan, we are pleased to announce that we are now able to offer group rides in a limited capacity.
Adjustments need to be made for everyone's safety. Group rides will be single file with two meters between bikes and limited to groups of ten riders per staggered time slot.
You must pre-register to participate (details are below).
As you may be aware, we're on the cusp of being able to offer sanctioned and insured cycling activities again. The Ontario Cycling Association has provided a mandatory waiver proforma for everyone participating in sanctioned cycling events, including touring, time trials, and races.
